After graduation, Mr. Ball left Tennessee for Baylor University School of Law. He graduated with his Juris Doctorate and earned distinction in oral advocacy. While in law school, Mr. Ball was given the honor to serve as a barrister.
Mr. Ball began his legal career at Adams and Reese LLP, one of the largest law firms in the southern United States. While at Adams and Reese, he focused his practice exclusively on litigation and trial work, representing numerous Fortune 500 and 1000 companies, other large corporations, and insurance companies in cases involving both personal injuries and commercial disputes.
Mr. Ball left Adams and Reese and the defense-oriented practice to focus on representing families and individuals who had been wronged by corporate negligence and malfeasance in product liability and catastrophic injury cases. Shortly thereafter he co-founded Farrar & Ball, LLP with the same goal. Mr. Ball has been lead counsel against virtually every major automobile and tire manufacturer, domestic and foreign. Mr. Ball has successfully obtained verdicts and settlements against numerous Fortune 500 companies, including, but not limited to, Michelin North America, Inc., Ford Motor Company, General Motors, Freightliner, LLC, Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire, Technical Chemical Company, Cooper Tire & Rubber Company, and Michelin Tire Corporation.
While he does not limit his practice to any one area of the law, Mr. Ball has gained a highly-regarded reputation in the representation of individuals who have been injured as a result of defective consumer products, including automotive and tire defects.
