Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    We represent clients with all types of criminal charges stemming from minor traffic tickets to serious violations including violent crimes and drugs. Our specialties include DUI charges, charges with scientific evidence, and other complicated evidentiary cases. With partner Michael Maloof, Jr., a graduate of Georgia Tech, we concentrate on dissecting complex scientific evidence and exposing problems when criminal charges are based on this type of evidence.

    21 years, 5,000 cases

  2. DUI and DWI
    As a former DUI prosecutor, and trainer of DUI prosecutors and officers, Troy Hendrick's experience is invaluable in analyzing all aspect of a case, and setting up viable defenses.

    21 years

  3. Personal injury

  4. Speeding and traffic ticket
    For years, we have successfully defended clients in the traffic courts of the state of Georgia. We are more familiar with many of these courts than any law firm in the state, because we have handled more cumulative cases than any law firm in the state. Insurance premiums can be very expensive, and every traffic ticket can have an effect on those premiums. We have been creatively representing our clients to protect their pocketbooks from these expensive collateral effects for years.

    21 years, 5,000 cases

I pride myself on hard work from a creative perspective. Always studying the ever-changing the law, and shaping it to get justice for my clients. I spend my free time with my wife in East Atlanta Village, and we enjoy both road cycling and mountain biking, whitewater paddling, and motorcycling.

Couldn't have asked for better
Used the Account app late Friday, heard from Troy Saturday morning. Troy explained or options and potential outcomes. He and his team did everything promised and was able to get my daughter's ticket completely dropped. Wish I had called him for a previous ticket my wife had a few years back! Definitely recommend.

Traffic Case
I want to personally thank Mr. Troy Hendrick for his outstanding legal representation. He represented my daughter in a traffic case and in the end the outcome was better than what we had expected. Thank you so much for the aggressive attitude in which you took on our case. Without a doubt your diligence and knowledge of the law allowed it to work for us and not against us. He proved to us the pride in which he takes in his profession and his no nonsense attitude is certainly one to be emulated by any defense attorney. Thank you so much Mr. Hendrick. Words simply can not express my gratitude. You have truly been a blessing to us.

Excellent experience overall, pleasant lawyer and team with positive result
Excellent experience. Responded quickly to the initial request. His staff was helpful in moving information along quickly and always stuck to the schedule. I enjoyed the personalized phone call with the results after the traffic hearing. It sounded like he did some intuitive work to clear two traffic citations and not let one conflict with the other.

Words cannot describe the gratitude and the joy of hiring Mr. Troy Hendrick as my attorney to represent me and a friend with 3 violations that seemed unbeatable. I research about 7 to 12 attorneys to represent me and friends for speeding at 87 mph on a 55 mph limit on 75 north in Fulton county after the speeding stop by a state patrol my friend was also given a violation of littering on highway and no seat belt. Other attorneys with many endorsements and references were charging above $1,200.00 to represent us. Mr. Hendricks office gave us a quote at half the price of what other attorneys were quoting to take our case. To make this true story short, Mr. Hendrick got the tickets dismissed!! We were very surprised based on the video evidence and the troopers’ testimony. Mr. Hendricks fought and challenged the evidence, the trooper and the radar device. The Judge and the prosecutor then moved to dismiss the case!! WE WON!!

Would recommend
I used Troy's services recently for a traffic issue. He took my info and basically handled everything for me from there. He knew what to do and when, it was pretty painless for me. I hope to never need this type of service again, but if I do I will be calling him.

He saved me money.
Troy Hendrick helped me with several traffic citations. It saved me money, and my insurance rates did not go up. I recommended him to several friends.

Ms. Smith
Troy was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in dealings with my traffic ticket. He is the best and I would trust him again if needed.

Very dependable and attentive to client needs
I had a traffic incident that Troy was able to handle for me. He was very responsive to my initial inquiry, and asked me to provide some minor details and pictures of the intersection where the incident occurred. From there, he went on my behalf to the hearing, and the issue was resolved without having to miss any work or put any significant time into dealing with the issue. He's also helped my wife out with a traffic issue, and we had the same great and professional experience in that case as well. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Troy to any family or friends in need of Defense help. He is certainly a lawyer with character and respect for the law and his clients.
