    Attorney Profile

    The founder of his law firm based in Decatur, Georgia, Troy Hendrick has earned a reputation as an excellent litigation attorney. Dividing his practice between criminal defense and personal injury cases, he provides representation to clients throughout the state. Mr. Hendrick is admitted to practice before all Georgia state courts, and he has received a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.

    In his criminal defense practice, Mr. Hendrick assists clients who have been charged with driving under the influence, drug possession or distribution, and other state misdemeanors or felonies. In addition, he handles speeding and other traffic charges for both drivers of passenger vehicles as well as truck drivers. Mr. Hendrick also has extensive personal injury and wrongful death litigation experience, providing representation to people who have been harmed by the negligence of others in motor vehicle accidents. If appropriate, he will negotiate a settlement with the at-fault driver's insurance carrier. However, the insurer's offer is often far too inadequate, and when that is the case, Mr. Hendrick will take the case before a jury and seek compensation for the client's medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damages, and, when applicable, loss of consortium. He has been able to obtain numerous sizable settlements and jury awards on behalf of his clients in this regard.

    A native of North Carolina, Mr. Hendrick attended The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as an undergraduate and received a Bachelor of Arts in 1998. He pursued his legal education at Wake Forest University School of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2002. Mr. Hendrick's professional memberships include the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the DeKalb Bar Association and The National College for DUI Defense, Inc.
