Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • He cares deeply for his clients

    “I am a Police Officer and after being dishonorably discharged from my agency on 10-13-16 Mr. Hesse was hired by me through the TMPA. Even though he is a criminal defense attorney he works hard for his clients, regardless who they are. Mr. Hesse went right to work and found 2 discrepancies committed by my agency. Mr. Hesse followed the agency's policy to appeal the termination to the letter, writing the city council, even when I was out of town. I decided I did not want work for that agency anymore and Mr. Hesse worked out a settlement that I could live with. A hearing was scheduled and nobody from my old agency showed. Instead they sent their attorney. As of 01-30-17 a SOAH Judge has ordered my dishonorable discharge to reflect an honorable discharge. Mr. Hesse was very professional and is a professional. He cares deeply for his clients and even talked to several Police Chiefs on my behalf attempting to find me jobs. I respect Mr. Hesse and would recommend Mr. Hesse to anyone who needs a good attorney. Thank you Mr. Hesse for all of your hard work in my case.”

  • He is an amazing and humbling man that will do anything for his clients

    “I was charged with a 3rd Degree Felony for possession of a controlled substance a Class B misdemeanor possession of marijuana. I had no defense and it would have been a miracle for me to walk away from this unscathed. With his drive and dedication to his clients, Mr. Hesse was able to get me on a 1 year pre-trial diversion program. The day that I met him he gave me the biggest feeling of relief. He was able to formulate a plan for the best possible outcome. On my first visit to court he was able to make a miracle happen! Im young and have a lot ahead of me and without his help I would have no future. I am so grateful for everything Chris has done for me and I would recommend him to everyone who is looking for an attorney to defend them. He is an amazing and humbling man that will do anything for his clients there's no need to look any further!”

  • Service Above and Beyond Expectations

    “I am a police officer. I was terminated and dishonorably discharged by my agency. I hired Chris through TMPA and he immediately found several issues with my termination as well as an issue with the Whistleblower Statute. Chris ensured that I was reinstated by the agency with full seniority, back pay and the "dishonorable" discharge is no longer an issue. Chris believes in the truth and fairness and he will fight for it. He's highly recommended.”

  • He had extensive knowledge of the law

    “While traveling from Colorado to Texas for Thanksgiving I was pulled over and searched. The officer found an ointment I use for leg pain that contained CBD. I never even thought that it would be considered illegal when I packed my bag or consented to a search. Being that I am self employed and occasionally do work for both the government and large Fortune 500 companies, I was terrified at the prospect of having any blemish on my record since I have never been in trouble with the law. Chris went to extraordinary lengths to represent me and I’m glad to say that the ticket was fully dismissed yesterday after he presented an amazing case to the judge. Thankfully, he had extensive knowledge of the law and made sure that I wasn’t the victim of what amounted to a “cash grab” ticket that would have stayed with me for years. Chris took a personal interest in my case from the moment I first called him. He really is one of the good guys. I can’t recommend him enough.”
