Welcome To My Law Firm
Since 1993, my firm, the Law Office of Eric A. Ballinger, has provided excellent legal representation to people in North Georgia dealing with a range of legal issues, including those living in Canton, Jasper, Ellijay, Blue Ridge, Hiawassee, Cumming and nearby. I focus on legal areas that affect people’s personal lives because I care about helping individuals in trouble with high-quality, affordable representation.
I am proud to serve Georgia’s legal community beyond my practice. I am a part-time magistrate in Cherokee County and have served on the Board of Governors for the State Bar of Georgia for 16 years. My work has been recognized by such awards as the Justice Robert Bentham Award for Community Services, given by the Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism. I am also proud to have served eight years in the Army Reserves, retiring at the rank of captain. My various experiences in and out of the legal profession have given me a unique perspective on criminal defense and family law.

Experienced Criminal Trial Lawyer
I have a Master of Law (LL.M.) in litigation and help my criminal defense clients take on charges of all types, including high-level felonies. Having tried nearly 100 felony-level cases in court, I know what it takes to aggressively represent you at trial and every other phase of your case. I will work closely with you to preserve your rights and seek the best possible resolution.
Divorce and family law disputes can pit spouses and relatives against each other in emotionally destructive ways. My goal in family law cases is to find a compassionate and effective solution that is reasonable and sustainable. I am a certified mediator and arbitrator in the State of Georgia and can guide you through these forms of alternative dispute resolution. But if a more traditional approach is necessary, I am a skilled and respected negotiator and litigator. I will use my decades of experience in family law to help you and your children transition successfully to the new arrangements.
