A God sent man.
Jeff was highly recommended to me and he did not disappoint. He was there with his support and prayers helping me through a most difficult situation. As an attorney, Christian man and friend, it would be hard to find any better.

A man of Integrity
Mr Hester took our case and it was a blessing for us. It was quite lengthy, but we were treated as we were his only clients (I know that was not the case). After many hours and much hard work in and out of the courtroom, Mr. Hester was successful. I would trust this honorable man with any matter what so ever.

Excellent Lawer
Jeff Hester represented me in a difficult Divorce. He was honest and after interviewing several Attorneys for my situation it was obvious he was the only one interviewed that was honest and straightforward unlike the other interviews where it was obvious they were just telling me what i wanted to hear to get me to use them. He was the only one that didn't ask me to give them my annual income . The others only wanted to take my case based on my income which told me a lot. He only asked for a retainer fee like any attorney would. I was very pleased with the results of my divorce and the attention to detail.
