Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • 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.”

  • Willing to go to trial for his clients

    “I have known Chris for several years now. He does not back down in the courtroom and is willing to go to trial for his clients.”

  • He doesn't rest until he is satisfied

    “The immigration consequences of criminal activity can be devastating to an individual and his/her family. The results may lead to a loss of freedom far greater than time served in jail. Attorney Chris Hesse knows this and is continually seeking solutions for his clients that not only deal with the criminal aspects of the case but the immigration consequences as well. He doesn't rest until he is satisfied that he has exhausted any and all avenues available to his clients. Chris has the ability to be both aggressive in his defense and show compassion. He is motivated by a deep sense of justice which he uses as his guiding principle when representing his clients.”
