I used Ernst and Associates attorney Rocky Ball Jr. to settle a dispute with a car rental service. Multiple attempts to settle the dispute on my own were unsuccessful. I spoke to Mr. Ball and within hours he had contacted the Claims Management Service by phone and followed up with a letter. Mr. Ball had noticed the damage invoice sent from the rental service was dated six months prior to my rental. The dispute was settled. Mr. Ball was prompt, efficient and affordable. Highly recommended!

A very professional law practice. Rocky Ball was of great help to me with my elder fathers legal needs. I needed help in getting power of attorney and durable power of attorney to help with all my fathers personal matters. Rocky met with me at my convenience and was very knowledgeable regarding these issues. I could not have accomplished handling my fathers affairs without the help of Rocky Ball. He is very compassionate about his work and displayed very professional work ethics.

My husband and I were in need of a legal service so we contacted Rocky Ball, an Attorney at Ernst and Associates. He was very quick to respond to our emails. He also took the time to explain everything in terms we could understand and the steps that were going to be involved. Some of wording on legal documents can be daunting but he answered all of my questions quickly and with clarity. The turnaround time between what we needed and when he delivered it was amazing! All in all, it was a great experience and I would not hesitate to refer him.
