Upon reading these positive reviews, we hired Mr. Hesse. He is a nice man, but here's what you need to know: he is a part of the Williamson County machine of sticking it to anyone who happens to make a mistake there. The consequences laid down for a first offense possession charge were so extensive and horrible that when our case was transferred to our home county, no one in law enforcement could believe the long list of things that had to be suffered through. Steve will tell you not to hang around any criminals, and then put you in situations where that's all you're around. You will not be able to get a job. Anywhere. As soon as your case is signed off, Steve will not respond to you. You will do jail time and pay a ridiculous amount of money. Basically, the best thing you can do is never go to Williamson County and if, God forbid, you get busted for something down there, Steve isn't going to care much about you at all....but your $6000....that will get him to say all the right things so you'll hire him. Then count on having your life ruined. And watch him drive away in his luxury vehicle....

I hired Stephen Hesse to help a close friend in a difficult and complex situation, and he resolved it very well. He was very responsive, professional, knowledgeable - and the most important part is that he actually cared. Couldn't wish for a better lawyer.

Completely upfront and honest right from the start, Mr. Hesse fought for every best case scenario that could be found regarding my case. And when things didn't work out exactly as planned through the discovery process, Steve worked to get the next best outcome. He believed in me every step of the way, and I believed in him. In the end, he made what could have been a devastating mark on my record into deferred adjudication. I can't thank Steve Hesse enough for his guidance and work on my case.

Steve is the one that knows all the angles to working a case in Williamson County. His experience working for the other side is invaluable, and he is your best chance at saving your butt. Anything can happen in a court room, so hire some one that knows what the prosecutor is thinking!

Mr. Hesse handled a case for me involving 2 misdemaenors,i met him after responding to his letter offering consultation. I found Mr. Hesse to be someone who wanted to make a difference in peoples lives in a positive way through the legal system, i liked him as a person right off,he was personable and honest and i felt he cared about people. I wanted a lawyer with integrity and i found him to be someone who would defend me without compromising the law or his own standards. Mr. Hesse worked hard to help me get the best deal for ME, he kept me informed as to what was happening and helped me understand what was going on. Since i had never been in trouble before he was able to get me an offer for the pre trial intervention program,i declined and took a plea offer instead that Mr. Hesse was able to work out for me and i am satisfied with his success in working with the court and the Judge to also get me a little more time to pay my court fees. Overall Mr.Hesse is a good man and a good lawyer and i think, a good example of what a lawyer should be.

Steve knows Williamson County. He used to be a prosecutor, so he knows the ins and outs of the system. He took the time to explain everything to me and to tell me what my options were. I would use him again... but I hope I never need to.
