Attorney Hession represented me in an appeal and complaint of contempt. In both cases he has the law and facts on his side. In both cases he failed to achieve the stated objectives of the litigation.
He gave a lot of assurance and insisted on his way. He refused to recognize my concerns or protect against obvious hazards. As a result his year and a half tenure was my counsel was constantly pocked with legal disaster that was preventable with a little care and diligence. Curiously he tended to blame me for the failures. Most discussions were littered with a sort of diatribe about how he was doing a great job. In the end he flatly refused to follow my instructions and made representations that were later found to be untrue.
He agreed to share what he learned from opposing counsel in his many lengthily multiple hour sessions. He failed to share more than how he felt the court was corrupt and a few comments about how opposing counsel and his client were crazy.
He could have exposed all sorts of abuse and judicial misconduct. Instead he joined the ranks of the ranks of the "highly irregular legal practitioners".
