  • David Christopher Hesse

    David is a true Professional. He is respected by Attorneys in Fort Bend County, mostly for his knowledge of the local bench. Being a former Judge himself, he has a knack for looking at how the local judges would look at the case. I have to admit that I have gone to David several times to ask his opinion on how to best work a case in Fort Bend County, Texas. A good Attoreny knows the law. A great Attorney knows the Judge!
