The Law Offices of Haitham Ballout

About Our Office

Integrity, Experience, Commitment!
Over the years, we have had the privilege of helping many clients meet their legal challenges: whether it be resolving their immigration status, helping individuals obtain their Permanent Legal Residency (Green Card), preventing unlawful Deportation proceedings, appealing successfully before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, obtaining compensation for injuries from accidents or medical malpractice, or other general civil law needs. As our law firm has grown over the years, we are proud to see that we have helped thousand of clients who continue to use our services.

As a lawyer, a husband, and a father Mr. Haitham Edward Ballout understands what it means when loved ones need help. Our philosophy is to treat each client as a close friend, and to work hard with integrity and commitment to help them resolve their legal problems.

Why Hire Us?

It has been said that we have a friendly atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, proven record of success, reasonable rates, client accessibility, and clear communication. 

Communication is one of, if not the most, important factor when it comes to legal services. With the legal landscape being confusing and constantly changing, it is important that our clients understand each step of the legal process. With many clients having English as a second language it can be even more difficult to grasp what is happening. At our office, we are likely to speak your language (Spanish, Arabic, French, & Italian).
