Client Reviews
Bonnie M. February 22, 2023
We paid him to represent us in family court, he represented himself!!!!!! We had won bimonthly visitation to have our granddaughter spend Saturday noon to Sunday noon at our home with our initial visitation hearing with a different lawyer My husband and I retained Mr. Hegman to represent us in family court to modify our visitation to add extra time with our eldest granddaughter. Our daughter and her now husband violated visitation with our younger granddaughter. Mr. Hegeman led us to believe we had a very good chance of succeeding in family court. I worked very hard to prepare for our trial by printing out all text messages between myself and the respondents, I prepared several pages of notes for Mr Hegeman with dates, times, and statements from witnesses to prove that the respondents lied on several occasions regarding visitation.He told me that I was one of his most organized clients. Mr. Hegeman did not spend time with us before the trial started to prepare for the trial to discuss our strategy. Instead he was called to work a pro Bono case which delayed our court appearance. During the trial Mr Hegeman would not listen to our concerns while the respondents gave their testimony, and didn't acknowledge what we wrote on the pad of paper he provided during the trial. When the respondents lawyer was trying his best to damage my character, Mr. Hegeman could have referred to my 200 plus pages of text messages that would support my side of the story. We lost our bimonthly visitation with our granddaughter because Mr. Hegeman didn't do the job we hired him to do Mr Hegeman didn't even have the decency to contact us with the judges decision but merely sent me an email!!!! I called him distraught and crying about all we had lost. He had no remorse and told me to have a nice day!!!!! I'm sure he will probably remove my review! Mr. Hegeman why don't you try explaining to our granddaughter why she can't visit with Nanna and Pop-Pop anymore, when she's crying on the phone because she misses us!!!!
