Busting the Myths about Quality Legal Representation
Myth: Lawyers are too expensive.
Fact: Created in 2008 to fill the need for quality, local legal representation, the Balch Law Group is built on the premise that no case is too small. We are here to provide quality representation, within budget, and on-time.
Myth: I don’t have time to go see a lawyer.
Fact: We come to you. We know your time is valuable and your business often can’t stop because you need legal advice. That is why we will come to your shop, office, location or anywhere else that is convenient to meet with you and discuss your legal needs.
Myth: Lawyers don’t care about their communities or the issues facing their neighborhoods.
Fact: We can’t speak for all lawyers, but our firm is heavily involved in South East Atlanta. Chris Balch serves as Chair Elect of the South East Atlanta Business Association. He has been directly involved with the Grant Park Neighborhood Association as past chair of the Business Development Committee and as Vice Chair of the Land Use and Zoning Committee. He was nominated by Councilmember Carla Smith and currently serves as a member of the City of Atlanta Veteran’s Affairs Commission. Chris lives and works in his community and his neighborhood and his City.
