Came through in the 11th Hour!
I was involved in a vehicle accident that was very complex and involved 8 vehicles. I had a difficult time finding an attorney to take the case, as I live in OK and the accident occurred in TX. After talking with 15-20 attorneys, Christy Hester agreed to take the case - 3 days before depositions. She reviewed my information and showed up at 9am that Friday to represent me. The accident took 3 years to settle, but it is finished, and thanks to Christy and her team (and a lot of tenacity on my part), truth prevailed. Christy is a pleasure to work with. She is very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and is very calming when emotions run high. I put her to the test with my emotions! Thank you, Christy and Linda!

My HIGHEST Recommendation
My husband was traumatically injured by a power line accident. We were referred to Mrs. Hester & the law firm she is affiliated with. We set up a consultation & immediately pleased with the complete compassion, professionalism and promptness of her putting together information and getting a case started. The in-depth actions she took were beyond any I’ve seen or heard of. I will forever be grateful for her. I highly recommend her, she is well educated in her profession!
