  • “After receiving a General Discharge on my F5, Mr. Hesse was hired for me by TMPA. Mr. Hesse did get the General Discharge changed to an Honorable. I feel that I received the best representation possible. I would recommend him to anyone. His number is definitely saved in my phone.”

  • Not only did he fight for me, he showed he cared.

    “You could say I have lived a colourful life. Did the college thing because the family expected It. However, I did manage to rack up several arrests in my former life. Well, as anyoneknows after some point your bond is no longer low and the the potential time vastly increases. I played college athletics and got in my share of bar fights; they were brushed under the rug and I got a slap on the wrists. Several years went by and I thought the monster in me was tamed, but last year I was at a Christmas party and once the beer was gone, the "good stuff" was cracked open. And with the liquor and family, exes, baby daddies, and a brother in law I can not stand: one thing led to another. Long story short I took a punch and like anyone with a history of fighting, I swung back. But a lot harder. Well, I get arrested. Even though it was self defense. But. Judges don't look at the person. They just see the record and a recurring problem. My bond was amazingly high and all the sudden I'm facing a felony and they are throwing numbers around like monopoly money. Well, luckily I got in touch with Chris Hesse. He told me to calm down, and reached me on a personal level. For the first 20 minutes we talked about who will win the Super Bowl. Not only did he fight for me, he showed he cared when everyone else seemed to just want to throw the book at me. He got my assault charge and disorderly conduct charges dismissed!! No court fees. And I was able to bring in the New Years around my friends, and grass and my own bed! He worked with me on the attorney costs. And has become my go to guy if I have any legal questions. He makes himself available. I never once did not get a answer or at least a call back that day. To this day I opened my own barbershop, just bought a new car, and a new home. If I woikd have had ANYONE else. I would have been a number and been on paper with ridiculous demands knowing I was being set up to fail. I owe so much to Chris. I live in Houston. I'll miss him. But I still know he is a phone call away. For advise. Or just bs.”

  • Excellent Guy to have on Your Side!

    “I hired attorney Chris Hesse and his investigators to help me prove my innocence in a case against me. Chris had a sound strategy for our progress with the goal of gathering enough evidence to avoid trial. He doesn't waste time and gets things going from day one, gathering evidence and getting statements or videos as needed. Chris always kept me informed of any developments and made me feel that he honestly cared about my case and we were a team. I was ready to go trial to prove my innocence, but with the help of Chris and his investigative team, my charges were dropped. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants an attorney that will fight for them and keeps the lines of communication open.”

  • Chris was an absolute professional in the courtroom

    “I sat 2nd chair with Mr. Hesse on a Possession of Marijuana case in April of 2014. Chris was an absolute professional in the courtroom. He was able to narrow down on the proper issues during jury selection and succeeded with the suppression of the Marijuana in the case. Judges are reluctant to grant suppressions, but Chris was able to get it done! At that point, the government had no other option than to dismiss the case. Had it not been for Chris' ability to spot a fatal flaw in the government's case, his client may have been wrongfully convicted. I have no doubt Chris will work hard on your case to expose the government just as he did in our case.”
