  • One of the most caring and savvy lawyers I know

    “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 defence. 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. Lol. 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 assult 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! Lol. 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 wasbeinv 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. Trent”
