Steve Ballin founded his firm in 1981 upon graduating from law school. He has overseen its continued growth during the last quarter-century, during which time he has enjoyed a successful career representing personal injury plaintiffs. Steve devotes a portion of his practice to representing police officers injured on duty, by pursuing the responsible parties in third party claims. Steve practices with four other lawyers including his two sons, Zachary and Jared.
Steve has built his statewide practice through referrals because his clients have not only valued his successful results, but they have valued the time he took to understand them and how their injuries have effected their lives at home and at work. He never gives up, turns over every rock and looks at every angle until he finds a successful approach and strategy. As a result he has won almost every trial and arbitration he has been involved in and has collected tens of millions of dollars for his clients. His approach is the same, whether he is working on a multimillion dollar case or a rear end motor vehicle crash resulting in a sprained neck or back: be compassionate, be innovative, be thorough and be results-oriented.
Steve has served as an arbitrator on accident cases and as a Governor on the Board of Governors of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys. He has lectured throughout the Commonwealth to trial attorneys and to police officers. He helped found and coach the Sharon High School Mock Trial team which has successfully competed in the Massachusetts Bar Association’s statewide mock trial competition.
Steve earned a B.A. in Political Science and Environmental Studies from the State University of New York at Binghamton in 1978. He received his J.D. from Boston University School of Law in 1981. He is a member of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys, the Massachusetts Bar Association and the American Association for Justice.
When not practicing Steve enjoys fishing, kayaking, cycling and boating on Cape Cod, as well as the occasional game of chess. He is an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots.
