Attorneys often get a bad rap. They are sometimes considered arrogant, uncaring, in it for the money, etc. And there may be some in this category., but Jim Ball isn't even on that planet. He is a very down to Earth man that happens to have a firm grasp of all things legal. For his level of expertise, he is worth every penny. (Which isn't even close to top dollar.) If you Google him, you will find all the amazing organizations he is affiliated with. Quality lawyer! Quality human being! Highly recommend!


When Jim Ball agreed to represent me, the criminal charges against me seemed to be a guaranteed slam-dunk victory for the Prosecutor. However, as he listened (and I mean HE TRULY LISTENED!) to what I was saying, he realized my Constitutional rights had been violated. Jim used his experience of having once been an Ada County Prosecutor to accurately predict the strategy that we'd be up against and he set into motion a powerful defense. In all honesty, it was as if Jim walked into the courtroom with a shotgun and blew giant holes in all of the accusations that were made against me. Because of Jim's knowledge of the law, his experience with both sides of the legal process, and his attention to details, all the evidence against me was suppressed and I walked safely away! Most importantly, I want it known that I was ill with concern when I learned that Jim actually knew and had worked with some of the detectives who had violated my rights during their pursuit of justice. I wondered if I'd be defended up to the boundaries of those friendships; yet when Jim set foot in that courtroom he did not hold back one millimeter. Looking back now it seems surreal, when I think about how angry the Judge was after Jim's masterful presentation of my case, I couldn't help but giggle. THAT ALONE is worth twice what I paid Jim to protect my freedom!


Jim Ball is, without a doubt, one of the best attorneys in all of Boise. When I got my DUI in June 2011, I was embarrassed, humiliated, and felt like a deer in headlights. Two days later, I was introduced to Jim Ball and I am so glad he was able to defend my DUI case. Jim is a very effective communicator; a great listener, and he cared about my needs. If you are in need of an excellent defense attorney, look NO further.


Jim was recommended to us as the best defense attorney in Boise - and he is. Thanks Jim, for handling my case with such commitment, loyalty, and expertise. Your dedication to achieving the best outcome for me has protected me from what could have been a tremendously complicated and unfortunate situation. I am lucky to have had such a good attorney.
