April 17, 2021 “Working with Aimee was an absolute pleasure. We are from Pennsylvania and found Aimee through a referral from the Texas Bar Association. She turned out to be a perfect match for us and our project. Aimee cracked our “cold case” of mineral rights we believed we inherited long ago but were never properly titled to us. She ran the ownership interests to ground, took care of titling the deed properly, and educated us on the process throughout our interactions. Aimee is extremely professional, diligent, capable, and a delightful person. We could not recommend anyone more highly.”

Endorsements: Compassionate, Good at explaining, Knowledgeable, Organized, Professional, Reliable, Responsive, Trustworthy.”
March 15, 2021 “Found Aimee while researching on The Minerals Rights Forum online. She answered all my early questions, which made hiring her easy. She was quick to answer all the questions and concerns since our family had no material lease experience. During the negotiating she kept us updated consistently with the progress. In the end, my family felt Aimee was the smartest decision we made in securing the best opportunities we could have expected for the leased property. She was good at explaining, knowledgeable, organized and responsive.”
November 23, 2020 “Working with a person long distance, I am in California, was challenging but we did it with flair and lots of help for me going forward. I know nothing about Texas oil law but what I needed to know was well explained. I was never talked down to even though I am sure I asked some stupid questions. I did appreaciate the help which was given in a timely and professional manner. Aimee was compassionate, determined, good at explaining, knowledgeable, organized, professional, reliable, responsive, trustworthy, won my case!”
January 30, 2020 “The Law Offices of Aimee Hess, PC handled pipeline easement negotiations for me. Aimee updated and advised me every step of the process and was prompt, professional and efficient. Aimee answered all my questions in a timely manner. She was absolutely the best choice I could’ve made. Her pricing was straightforward and fair. With her expert knowledge in this area of law, it was a perfect fit and felt like a weight had been lifted with her in my corner! I highly recommend her and will use her in the future if needed for sure!”
“Five stars. I would hire her again, she did what she said she would do in a timely fashion. I was not able to find an attorney to take on my case and out of the blue Aimee informed me that she could take on my case.”
January 30, 2020 “I wholeheartedly recommend Ms. Aimee Hess for any type of legal work involving oil and gas wells. She took on my case and followed it through to a successful completion.

July 05, 2019 “Should be more than 5 stars for “Value for Money”. I’m probably like a lot of people who dread having to use an attorney. But every time I have it’s been worth many times the fee. This was the case with Aimee, who guided us through the process getting a very favorable increase in the offer while effectively dealing with the intimidation tactics used against us. She stated that with legal matters, she treats each client as if they were a relative, and I believe this to be true.”
June 14, 2019 “Aimee Hess was a pleasure to work with. She left us completely satisfied with her work. Her billing process is fair and transparent. Her response time is excellent. Her communication skills are great, and we were very satisfied with the quality of her work and her completion time.”

March 20, 2019 “Aimee Hess went well beyond what was expected of her. She was very professional and is was very good at negotiating with the Oil and Gas company. We didn’t have to worry about anything. It was very stressful trying to handle it before we hired Aimee, but she took care of everything for us!!”
March 13, 2019 “The Law Offices of Aimee Hess, P.C. provided exceptional, expert service in handling easement negotiations for me. After a thorough search, I am confident I found the right attorney. She is as responsive and professional as she is tenacious, and her institutional knowledge and level of skill made me supremely confident that I received the finest representation possible. This firm is expert at negotiating easements with oil and gas companies, and I would most definitely use this company again.”
January 27, 2019 “She stuck with us through lengthy negotiations and achieved our desired outcome. Thank you, Aimee.”
December 18, 2018 “Ms. Hess was always very prompt in answering email questions. She helped my family through a difficult process of legalizing mineral interests and securing an oil/gas lease. Highly recommend her as an attorney.”

July 25, 2018 “Aimee was great, quick to respond and made the process extremely simple and easy for me and my firm. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone in the Houston/Dallas area.”
“Very thankful to find, an attorney, that gave her best and without a doubt, she knew what to do. She was dedicated, from the beginning to inform us on updates, what our next procedure would be and if we had any questions, replied promptly. Yes, she will be our choice, next time we need an attorney.”

“I wish to express how fully satisfied I have been with Ms. Hess’s efforts on our behalf. I have found her to be effective, yet with a wonderful touch of civility and grace that is rarely found now days. She has been a valuable advisor and advocate for myself and my family in dealing with our case and leading us through the ins and outs of both our case and items related to it that we had little exposure to. I have nothing but the highest regard for her abilities and recommend her fully.”
March 27, 2018 “Well worth the price to have her negotiating expertise. I was very comfortable knowing she had everything covered.”
“It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with you. You helped me out of my problem caused by others. You did this with complete professionalism and efficiency. We did all of this via email due to my location in Australia. I would recommend you to anyone who needed legal assistance.”
October 27, 2017 I would like to say that Aimee was the best. She was well versed in handling mineral rights case and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for representation in that matter, you will be immensely pleased.
August 16, 2017 Aimee Hess demonstrated expert knowledge of pipeline easement laws. She made the process very easy for us, taking time to answer our questions and informing us of our options. We were able to relax and know that she was in control. Definitely the attorney to put your trust in.
August 3, 2017 Aimee Hess really went to bat for me. Not only did she go beyond her job description to advise me in how to go about proving my heirship, but I ended up getting nearly double the original royalty offer, and over double the lease payment that was originally offered. It was obvious to me that she had my best interests at heart, and was willing to fight for them. This has gone from being a wonderfully helpful sum to being a life changing amount of income for me, and it is because of Ms. Hess. She is a force of nature!
June 13, 2017 Aimee was very professional and was able to close negotiations for us we had been trying to settle through another attorney for 6 months. Her charges were fair and reasonable. She always made sure we knew all of our options and was very good at following up to make sure all contracts were recorded. We will definitely use her again.
June 7, 2017 We felt from the very beginning that we were in good hands with Aimee Hess. She never let us down. She was kind, concerned and patient as we navigated my brother’s estate. We never had to check up on and status, she was always on point and kept us fully informed. This was a difficult and emotional time and it was so comforting to know that this part of the process was handled and handled with expertise. We will continue to use Aimee for future legal needs.
June 1, 2017 Aimee is friendly, knowledgeable, and always responds in a timely manner. She has been extremely helpful to me with royalty issues and very effective in working with the county tax office. Her professionalism and expertise have made my life much easier.
June 4, 2016 Aimee made the process very easy. She understood the situation and explained what was required from me. She answered all the questions in a timely manner. She spent the time to listen to my concerns and carried them forward in the negotiations.
January 29, 2016 It was such a privilege to engage the services of Aimee Hess and have the benefit of her expertise in the realization of our legal goal. All throughout the process we were in good hands under her direction, guidance, skill and professionalism. We were treated with the utmost respect in that questions were welcomed, concerns were validated and any necessary advising was carried out ethically. Her precise use of legal language in the preparation of our documents gave us great peace of mind.
September 14, 2015 Aimee was very professional, cooperative and has excellent knowledge of the oil industry. I would recommend her for any oil industry business.
June 24, 2015 Aimee was very helpful and very understanding of our situation. She was a pleasure to work with.
June 12, 2015 “Aimee was a pleasure to deal with. If I ever need Law Services, I will use Aimee.”
March 28, 2015 “We contacted Aimee Hess because she was recommended as a good lawyer to represent us in an oil and gas lease. She lived up to the recommendation, working to protect our personal and property interests and to obtain a better payment agreement. Aimee was very responsive and represented us well in negotiations. She followed up regularly with the land man and oil company to ensure that we received copies of all completed contract documents. We were pleased with the value of her services and would use her again.”
April 04, 2014 “Aimee has been very prompt and cordial. She is very knowledgeable with all areas of oil, gas and mineral rights. We also used her services for our Family Trust and we are very satisfied with the work she has done.”

The Law Offices of Aimee Hess, P.C. provided exceptional, expert service in handling easement negotiations for me. After a thorough search, I am confident I found the right attorney. She is as responsive and professional as she is tenacious, and her institutional knowledge and level of skill made me supremely confident that I received the finest representation possible.

You have been very easy to work with and we will certainly contact you when we are in need of help again.”
Kay Smith, Shirley Moon, Phil Dixon, Lynn Dixon
“When I received the offer from the landman to run a new pipeline through my property, it sounded like a good deal. Having never dealt with anything like that, I avoided the temptation to take the offer. Instead, I sought advice from Aimee. She was very understanding and started the ball rolling from day one. She stopped the numerous telephone calls, letters, and emails from the landman. Aimee made the entire process easy for me with clear instructions, timely answers, and a proactive attitude. In the end, she helped protect my property and was able to negotiate a significantly higher compensation package than was originally offered. ”
Waymon Bellville, Texas
“When our family attorney told me that she did not have experience with easements, we knew it was definitely not something we could handle on our own. I found Aimee Hess through the Lawyers.com website. From the first contact, I felt comfortable with Aimee and her method of communication and processes – all from afar. It quickly became obvious that she has much more expertise than the attorney representing the other party. Their proposed easement evolved into a purchase of a small portion of our rural land, which we felt was the cleanest option and most beneficial to us. Aimee patiently led us through the process and took care of every detail, covering things we would never have thought about. She kept the other attorney and the title company on their toes to ensure everything was handled correctly, thoroughly, and in a timely manner. Without hesitation, we recommend Aimee Hess to handle legal matters, especially those mind-boggling ones pertaining to real estate.”
Corky & Mike McCorkhill Arlington, Texas
“Aimee Hess was very professional, cooperative and has an excellent knowledge of the oil industry. She is easy to work with on projects. I would recommend her for any oil related projects.”
“We were shocked when we were contacted by a landman who was a representative fro a oil company interested in leasing our land. We live in Illinois and when we received the oil lease, we knew we needed an attorney. We contacted our attorney. He had no experience with oil leases. He recommended getting an attorney living in Texas. He contacted some of his attorney friends and they recommended Aimee Hess. We contacted her about our situation and explained that two families own the land. Aimee took it from there, she guided and kept us informed every step along the way. She would ask us if we had any questions or concerns. After she answered our questions she would bring up more questions that we never thought of. She had many suggestions for us but always let us make the final decisions. She also went out of her way to help us understand the oil business, so we could make better decisions. We would recommend Aimee to anyone who needed an attorney dealing with oil companies.”
Boyd and Martha June 25, 2015
“Thank you, Aimee, for your leadership, knowledge, patience, and assistance in getting our mineral rights situation resolved. None of us had known our grandfather (who owned these rights). None of us, through our parents, had any idea of our mineral rights in West Texas. The various parts of our clan had not had contact with one another in over 30 years, so this episode has rejoined us.
Aimee, I think any of us would willingly recommend you to others that have similar mineral rights issues, especially if they live a long distance from the property.”
Jim Venable LaGrange, Kentucky
“Living on the west coast and being inexperienced in such matters, I was quite overwhelmed with uncertainties after inheriting mineral rights in Texas and receiving a lease offer. I consider it a true blessing of divine providence that I discovered Aimee Hess on the internet and was able to connect with her and receive her professional support and representation. From the outset, and throughout the process, I was struck by her keen intelligence and knowledge – she is truly a deeply informed and experienced expert in her field – as well as by her genuine warmth, friendliness and caring. She has a heart of gold, and went out of her way to help me in ways she didn’t have to. She is highly professional, tough and capable, while personable and easy to communicate with. I would enthusiastically recommend her services to anyone. Once in her hands, I went from feeling anxious and overwhelmed to feeling calm and well taken care of. Looking back, too, I know with peace and confidence that I did the best thing possible by obtaining her representation, and can rest confident in the knowledge that the lease terms she negotiated for me are the best possible. Thank you and bless you, Aimee! You were a godsend.”
Kirsten Williams Eugene, Oregon
“I was very fortunate to contact Aimee Hess after reading her web article about possible tax and liability issues involved with oil and gas royalty income. Aimee gave me a quick education of the entire oil and gas royalty process and told me about all my options and the pros and cons of each. After working with Aimee I decided to sell my royalty interest and Aimee helped me negotiate a great price and lifted the burden off my shoulders of owning an asset I initially knew nothing about.
Aimee was very reasonable in her fee and no additional fees were charged when negotiations dragged on. She had excellent follow thru in all areas and made the sale of my royalty, which is a complex issue, understandable and much easier. I would highly recommend Aimee Hess for anyone looking for a Texas attorney with her specialties.”
Tom A. Palos Verdes Estates, Ca
“First, I want you to know that I’m happy to have had the opportunity to have met you when my niece and I met with you back in July 2010. I am glad she chose you as our Attorney. I applaud you for being SPECIAL and STEADFAST. You are one of a kind who endures the time,compassion and one with a heart of gold.
You did an excellent job. THANK YOU. Aimee, I think you, my niece and I could write a best seller book regarding what we had to go through. Aimee, I looked in a dictionary for the definition of SPECIAL ATTORNEY (which you are) and I saw YOUR PICTURE AND YOUR NAME THERE. Again, thank you for what you did for my favorite niece, and our family. MAY GOD FOREVER BLESS YOU.”
Rosie P. Dallas, Texas
“Aimee, I just want to tell you how pleased and grateful my brother and I are with the help and guidance you gave us throughout our Mineral Rights process. Being from Ohio and Florida, we had no idea where to start and how to get help until my brother found you through the Texas Bar Association. We couldn’t have found a better organized, knowledgeable and patient person. Thank you from the two of us. We hope to get to meet you sometime in the future.”
Sue P. Marblehead, Ohio
“I had no experience with mineral rights when my family was recently asked to lease our oil and gas rights to 38 acres in Texas. I knew we needed an attorney after having read the unfamiliar language used in the proposed lease. Living in Oklahoma, I found it difficult to find a local attorney familiar with Texas oil law. Thank God I was referred to Ms. Hess by another lawyer too busy to help us. Aimee was extremely knowledgeable of the Texas oil/gas industry and negotiated much greater royalty and acreage bonus amounts than the Landman initially offered, or my family thought possible. She was always willing to answer my questions and concerns. I felt her fees were quite fair and best of all, none of them were hidden! She is a great communicator and always kept us up to date.”
Scott G. Tulsa, Oklahoma
“My husband and I were offered an oil lease for our property, I knew we shouldn’t just sign it, but I didn’t know who to contact for help. Luckily, I found Aimee on the internet. She was FANTASTIC. Even the landman said that it was a pleasure dealing with her. She is knowledgeable, personable and tough. She gave advice, never pressuring us one way or the other and by following her advice, we got a great deal and she ensured that our property and us were protected in the process.”
Gay R. Seguin, Texas
“When I found out I needed an attorney in Texas to help me with an inherited mineral rights deed and an oil and gas lease contract, I had no idea who to call since I live on the west coast. Fortunately, the Texas State Bar steered me to the right person with the very first phone call. Aimee was very easy to talk to and answered all of my questions, even the ones I didn’t even know to ask! I would not have understood the daunting legalese of the contract without her professional advice and recommendations and am so grateful for all of her help. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing legal services.”
Pam M. Portland, Oregon
“Aimee is smart, tough and efficient. She has served as our local counsel for development, leasing and litigation activities for nearly thirty years. Her input and assistance have been invaluable. She helps us make decisions as if she owned a vested interest, and was not just our lawyer.”
Robert Finley Manager, Marsh Road LLC Owner, Finley Interests
“Aimee Hess has been my attorney since 1978, both in business while I was with Trammell Crow Company and in my personal dealings. She accepts any task with aggressive enthusiasm and proceeds with intelligence, professionalism and purpose, with steadfast attention to detail. It has been my good fortune to consider her a true and good friend. She has my highest recommendation. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.”
Wells Field Former Senior Property Manager Trammell Crow Company Dallas Industrial Division
“Over several years it has been my great pleasure to work with Aimee Hess on a challenging and involved project in Dallas. She has always done a thorough, professional job and has acted as more than just an attorney: she is adept at stepping into an owner’s shoes and providing representation which is keyed to the owner’s perspectives and needs. I recommend her without qualification.”
Alan Roodhouse President RPS Development Company, Inc.
“When confronted with the difficult task of selling a property for my mother in Texas while I lived in another state I knew that I need to obtain legal counsel to coordinate the transaction and ensure that my mother’s interests were protected. I searched the internet and found Aimee Hess. Aimee was truly a godsend. It was a complex transaction that ended up being much more difficult than any of us could have expected. Aimee was a true professional through the whole process. I sincerely appreciate the service Aimee provided and would recommend her to anyone needing legal services.”
Wayne W. Payette, ID
“My wife and I would like to express our appreciation for your handling of our oil and gas lease. As you know, we were very nervous since we are not from Texas and had no idea what to expect when we received multiple lease offers from different oil companies. Things could not have gone more smoothly. Due to your negotiations, our bonus payment and royalties are substantially higher than the original offers, and the difference proved your fees to be a very good investment. Not only that, but you have been a pleasure to deal with and always replied promptly, even when we started getting jittery and called you several times a day asking dumb questions!! You pleasantly assured us that our concerns were being addressed. In the end, everything went exactly as you said it would. We were very skeptical about finding an attorney who would represent our interests properly, and we are so happy that we found you. We would highly recommend your services. It truly was a pleasure doing business with you. Thanks again!”
Steve and Lisa P. Ventura, California
