Mississippi-based YoungWilliams is pleased to announce that Jeff Ball has joined the company as Project Manager for the newly-awarded El Paso County Colorado child support project. In this capacity, Jeff will oversee all aspects of the County’s child support program. Jeff is a highly regarded leader in the national child support enforcement program. His experience includes five years with the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) as a Senior Advisor to the Commissioner and Branch Chief, where he led OCSE’s welfare reform efforts, and served as an Official Observer to the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws’ Uniform Interstate Family Support Act Drafting Committee. He also oversaw numerous workgroups dealing with technical assistance, interstate issues, income withholding, welfare reform, and paternity.
