Police Officer Defense

We Fight for Justice and to Protect Our Protectors

News media outlets can put a great deal of focus on police brutality cases whenever they arise, but it is important to realize that most law enforcement officers are honest, hard-working individuals who would never dare think to unlawfully harm a citizen or violate someone’s rights. If you are a police officer in the state of Texas and you are currently undergoing department investigations for dangerous, abusive, or criminal behavior, Police Officer Defense Attorney D. Chris Hesse can stand up for your rights and protect your freedom, career, and wellbeing. As a former United States Marine, he knows that sometimes those who defend the people of America need strong defense of their own.

Our Duty is to Uphold Your Rights

When a police officer goes out on patrol or is assigned to respond to a criminal disturbance call, they can never know exactly what to expect. Although the men and women of law enforcement are experienced professionals, it is understandable if this air of uncertainty still causes added pressure and stress from time to time. It is important that any disciplinary actions taken against a police officer be balanced to the alleged violation. It is even more critical, however, that the officer be given the opportunity to explain their side of the story and defend themselves.

A police officer may face discipline if they are accused of:

  • Using undue force or violence against a suspect
  • Unlawfully removing protesters (preventing free speech)
  • Conducting illegal searches and seizures
  • Striking an innocent when firing upon an armed and dangerous criminal

We Offer Free Initial Consultations to Police Officers

Your career may be focused on enforcing the law but that does not mean you are going to be precisely familiar with all the intricacies and legalese of the system. Rather than attempting to protect yourself from harsh disciplinary action after an alleged wrongdoing on duty, let our Amarillo police defense attorney do it on your behalf.

  • Mr. Hesse never faltered

    “We lost our case but that's alright. The DAs office had 10 lawyers and the judge on their side, Mr. Hesse never faltered. He went toe to toe against all that. Most impressive part about Mr. Hesse was, he cared, win or loose. We have a bit more to go and if Mr Hesse will have us, we will use him again.”

  • 1st Degree Felony Case, Dismissed

    “My then 21-year old son was facing a possible 5 to 99-year sentence in state prison. Mr. Hesse was his court-appointed attorney in Fort Bend County, but you would not have known it, given the passion he provided to this case. This case lasted 3 1/2 years, thru 1 mistrial in 2015 before Mr. Hesse succeeded in having the case dismissed, a week ago today. I believe he was truly driven to accomplish the best possible outcome for my son. Given the obstacles he encountered with this case, many other attorney's might have given up and passed this case to someone else, but he did not. Chris Hesse is the type of attorney you want on your side when you're fighting to prove your innocence. My son and family will never forget what he did for us. As an attorney he is knowledgeable, caring, respectful and committed.”

  • He is a sophisticated man.

    “Mr. Hesse did the thinking to understand the nuances of my case and the effects of that case on my life. He was not handling my case like it was a "cattle call" docket of so many attorneys who handle criminal cases because of the relatively low overhead of minor criminal case load as compared to civil litigation. He is a sophisticated man.”

  • 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.”

  • Very satisfied momma

    “I hired Chris Hesse after my 15 year old was charged with aggregated assault with a deadly weapon (2nd degree felony). Chris was very knowledgeable and kept in contact with us about the case. He was able to get the case dismissed without seeing a judge. The entire family is so relieved and happy with the results. I would definitely hire him again. So pleased.”
