  • Highly recommend

    “My name is Eddie and I am a former client of Mr. Hesse . I would like to say I think he did a great job on representing me. Mr. Hesse was very clear, informative and sensitive to my situation at a very low point in my life. He called sometimes just to check on me and ask how was I doing. That really meant a lot to me. Not to mention he was very active, proficient and professional with my case. Thanks again David C. Hesse you are highly recommend.”
