The practice grew, The Law Offices of Desa Ballard developed a civil litigation practice that can only be described as “a little different”, and a lot of phone calls to the office begin with, “This case is a little unusual…” She soon developed a slogan (which lawyers can’t technically have) “we make pigs fly.”
As the law firm developed, Desa realized she could not do it all herself, despite being a self-proclaimed Superwoman. Harvey Watson joined her in the practice and, in 2011, Harvey became a partner in the firm and together, with an amazing staff, they still make pigs fly.
