About William

Learn William’s areas of practice.

William (Bill) Hesch is an experienced attorney who is uniquely qualified to find the best legal, tax and financial solutions for your business, your family, and you, and to give you peace of mind. His accessibility to you by phone—day or night—shows he really cares about you.

His education and experience are very unique. As a practicing certified public accountant (CPA) for over 35 years, he brings years of experience as a former Big 4 tax partner, former CFO for a $70 million privately owned company, former auditor for a local CPA firm, and a business advisor for owners. In 1988, Bill was one of the first 400 CPAs to be certified as a Personal Financial Specialist (PFS) and today there are only 4,700 CPAs in the country and only 56 CPAs in the Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati area who are a PFS. A PFS is a CPA who specializes in financial planning. Bill is one of the very few CPA/PFSs in the Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati area who are also practicing attorneys.

If you are seeking a legal solution to your business or personal problems, you may need to coordinate meetings with your attorney, CPA, and financial planner. Once you have discussed your problem with each of them, they will need to communicate effectively with each other and seek a solution that addresses all the legal, accounting, tax and personal financial issues involved. With Bill, you have each of those perspectives covered all in one person.

Bill’s expertise as an Attorney, Certified Public Accountant, and Financial Planner is further illustrated in his TV interviews on Channel 9 News. Bill has been interviewed over 25 times on various estate, tax and financial planning topics. Visit the video library on his website to see his live Channel 9 TV interviews. His peers in the legal community have also recognized Bill as a Leading Lawyer in the Trust and Estate area of Cincy Magazine in each of the past 11 years.

Highly Recommend!!
I had an unusual situation that needed to be handled in Ohio after I had moved to Mississippi. I contacted Bill online, who assigned my case to Josh Graber, and I couldn't be happier with the results! Josh acted on my behalf and was professional, personable and thorough, and got the matter wrapped up like a neat package with a bow wrapped around it! I highly recommend William E. Hesch Law Firm, and in particular, Bill Hesch and Josh Graber! Kudos!
