    “Chris has a strong sense of what is right and just when it comes to defending his clients. He's not afraid to take on the State, nor stand up to a Judge. Chris holds his oath as a lawyer seriously and investigates each case as if it was his only one. He's a fighter and a fine lawyer.”

  • Excellent attorney, you won't be disappointed

    “I've had the pleasure of working with Mr. Hesse as we had a mutual client even though we work in two different states. It was his hard work and cooperation that enabled me to help my client get the amazing result he did. Easy to work with, and incredibly knowledgeable in the law. All clients should be so lucky to have such a skilled attorney.”

    Justin

  • Diligent and Professional

    “Level-headed, dependable and mature. He possesses strong work ethics. His performance throughout our trial was stellar. I and those in the courtroom immediately recognized that Attorney Chris Hesse put considerable effort in mastering his craft. He constantly displayed sound judgment throughout our hearings. He inspires confidence and I strongly recommend this attorney to anyone who wants a fair trial. He is a must have. He performs his duties with diligence and professionalism.”

  • Chris was an absolute professional in the courtroom

    “I sat 2nd chair with Mr. Hesse on a Possession of Marihuana 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 Marihuana 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.”

  • 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.”
