  • 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.”
