    • I do not recommend Don Hecker.

    DO NOT DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT use Don Hecker as your lawyer. He does no work and only wants your money. We hired Don Hecker to handle a case for my brother. He first told us one price when we went for the consultation. After we left his office he called and called about paying him the money because he said he knew he could get my brothers case handled. Once we did pay him the money he stopped answering or returning our calls. Once my brother court date came is when we heard from him again demanding more money and with a new price. We paid him the additional money the day before court. In court the next day he was so unprepared. He let the judge read wrong charges on my brother and allowed him to accuse him of crimes he did not commit. He looked terrified of the DA and he looked like he had no clue what was going on. The judge then brought up that a hearing needed to be done to see if Don Hecker could represent my brother due to a possible conflict of interest with him representing someone else who was charged in the same crime as my brother. I felt he should have known this would have been an issue before taking our money. The hearing was set to determine if there was indeed a conflict. Don Hecker decided not to show. When we called to get information not knowing he did not show we were told that he could no longer represent my brother due to the conflict of interest and we needed to find a new lawyer. I decided to call the court myself, and I found out Hecker never showed for any decision to be made. I was done with this man he had lied to us and robbed us of our money. We called wanting a refund of our money because nothing was resolved. He would not call us back to explain his lies or anything. His secretary started being rude because we would not stop calling demanding our money back. After weeks of calling he decided that he would give us half our money back. I have never felt so unjust. This man has no concern or care for others, Rude, Money Hungry, Liar and Untrustworthy. I will be filing a grievance compliant with the bar. Please save yourself the trouble, frustration and disappointment with dealing with him.

    • I do not recommend Don Hecker.
    • I hired Don 1-3 years ago.
    • Don handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Avoid this attorney at all cost. He should be disbarred , why he is still allowed to practice law puzzles me.

    • I recommend Don Hecker.
    • I hired Don 6-12 months ago.

    I would recommend Mr. Hecker. He told from the beginning how my case would go with court procedures. As follow, he was right about the everything, he education me and told me it would take awhile for the my case finish out. I was very please on the outcome.

    • Don handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I haven't spoken to him outside of court; i call to set up appointment for defense; i cant even reach him. I feel i'm unjustly been ignored. when i do speak to him or his staff only thing i'm asked is "have u payed in full"

    In the 8 months since Don Hecker was appointed by the court to represent me i have never seen the man. He keeps sending lackies to reset court date. Every time i ask about my case or why Mr Hecker is not here, the initial response is are you current on your payments? followed by oh he was court appointed? He is real busy working other cases. When i started to get upset they would respond rudely. After the Video was requested and I watched it and i was told the attorney had seen it as well. Next court date, attorney has no idea what is on the video. He then said it would not be in my interest to go to trial. When i ask him why he said because it was your car and you were driving. UM no it was not and no i was not. 8 months and no one at his office has ever asked me what happened and did not even posses basic knowledge about my case. If you want to get robbed before you go to prison Hire this guy

  7. Great attorney for people who relish the idea of defecating in a communal setting and making license plates (in my opinion)

    • I do not recommend Don Hecker.
    • I hired Don more than 3 years ago.
    • Don handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    The only time Don Hecker seemed interested in the case was the day we retained him. He called back promptly that afternoon to make certain we brought 1,000 to the hearing.

    After he received the 1,000, we never heard from him again. He never returned a phone call. He even neglected to make arrangements with the "victim" to receive her affidavit after she decided she no longer wished to press charges. He just kept postponing the hearings and demanding more money (of course there was no attorney-client agreement).

    In my opinion, this would be a great attorney for anyone who relishes the idea of defecating in a communal setting and making license plates along side unwanted suitors of the same gender.
