    I first used Mr. Hess's services when I was going through a divorce. It was an awful time and he was thoughtful of my circumstances. I rated him lowest in responsiveness because there were times during the 10-month process when I would have liked more explanation of what was happening. But he is still the only lawyer I will use in the future for general legal services.
