  • Chris Hesse

    Grant is a frequent lecturer for the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (TCDLA) and is considered light years ahead of his peers. He was elected to the Board of Directors and recently to the Officer Position of Secretary in TCDLA. It is only a matter of time before Grant moves up the Officer chain to the position of President of TCDLA. TCDLA is the largest State-wide Defense Attorney's Association in the Nation. Grant recently gave a class to West Texas Attorneys in Lubbock on the subject of Cross Examination. His course was excellent. I've found Grant to be genuinely caring for his clients. He is one of the few attorneys who will really listen to his clients. It has been a privilege knowing Grant and seeking his advice. When Grant speaks, you listen.

    Grant knows a ton about DWI and DUI especially. As a former prosecutor I knew that when he brought me an issue on a case, I needed to listen. He knows his stuff and he fights hard for his clients.
