  1. Integrity, Honesty and Reliability

    • I recommend Lance Hester.
    • I hired Lance 1-3 years ago.
    • Lance handled my Personal Injury matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    After an unfortunate auto accident and resulting injury (neither were my fault), my insurance company failed to cover costs that were included in my policy. Further, it was extremely difficult to get the "at -fault" party's insurance to provide any financial support that they were obligated to do.

    After researching attorney's and referrals from three different sources, I hired Lance Hester at the Hester Law Group. Mr. Hester is an attorney whose understanding of the law and the resulting legal system enables him to defend clients like myself when others aren't doing what is "right" (or even legal). In my very positive experience with his support, Mr. Hester was not the type of an attorney out to defend clients simply for money, he is truly here to defend those who have been wronged.

    I would recommend his knowledge of the law, honestly, experience and integrity to anyone looking for an attorney who is ready to do the hard leg work to defend those who need help navigating the legal system.

    At the end of the day my expenses were entirely covered, plus more. And all was conducted outside of court proceedings. Which is all I could ever hope for. Thank you Mr Hester!

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

    A very smart man but very greedy. I put 5000$ in his hands to help me with stuff I was not guilty of. He showed to the hearing and acted like he was doing good but made me confused and I ended up doing 21 months prison time for 11 probation violations. I tried to get some of the 5000$ back but he said no. I made a complaint to the Bar and they wanted me to deal with a mediator. How since I had to do 21 months in prison. I gave Lance a second chance and asked him if he would challenge my gulity plea since 4 other attorneys and psychologist who read the report said there is not enough in here for the judge to accept a guilty finding. I sent over 750 pages of my case and the heading letter said.."Please return when finished". Months later I called him and he said he tossed it. I complained then months later it came in the mail without an apology. When I looked over the paperwork....some of the pages were removed as if I wouldnt know it. Since it was the photo issue I was concerned about. At one time Lance was well known and once were called the best. When I hired them.....the representation I received is what a bum would give you when you handed him $5000.

    • I recommend Lance Hester.
    • I hired Lance more than 3 years ago.
    • Lance handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I hired Lance Hester to help me with 2 different legal matters. One was a felony criminal case and the other was a family law issue. In the felony criminal case this individual had everything to lose and this would affect their whole life. They were looking at possible jail time and on their record. Lance worked through the system and was able to work a favorable outcome that did not affect this persons life for ever no jail time or on their record. So when I needed another lawyer I contact lance to help me with this next family law matter. The second case is dealing with domestic violence. Lance is helping me through this very difficult process so this does not destroy a family. He is always honest and straight forward, but works extremely hard to help his clients with favorable outcomes. I trust him completely and he would be the attoreny I would go to first again.

    Mr. Hester epitomizes professional representation. His knowledge, candor and helpful staff made a difficult situation much more manageable. Mr. Hester always made himself available for my questions, and did a great job in explaining, and walking me through the entire process. I highly recommend Mr. Hester’s legal services, should you find yourself in the need.
