About Chris

Learn Chris’s areas of practice.

I am a former Sheriff's Deputy and Probation and Parole Officer and am a native of Murray, Kentucky.  I received a Bachelor's degree in criminal justice and minor in Spanish from Murray State University.  During college and after, I worked for the Calloway County Sheriff's Office as a deputy and dispatcher.  After I left the Sheriff's Office, I spent six years as a Probation and Parole Officer with the Kentucky Department of Corrections, where I supervised adult felony offenders in the community.
I left the Department of Corrections in pursuit of a law degree at the Southern Illinois University School of Law.  While in law school, I worked as a clerk for Calloway and Marshall County Circuit Judge Dennis Foust as well as Graves County Prosecutor David Hargrove. 
In May 2014, I established a solo law practice in Murray.  In June 2015, I joined the law firm of Haverstock, Bell and Pitman as an Associate.  I left Haverstock, Bell and Pitman in 2017 to resume my solo law practice.
Outside of the courtroom, I consider myself an outdoor enthusiast. I also enjoy reading, traveling and live music. I reside in Murray with my wife and two daughters.

A satisfied client, a returning client and a now with no doubt a lifelong client.
Mr. Hendricks first met with me on a Sunday,due to my procrastination, and took my case on a class d felony at a rate by far better than most attorneys with his knowledge. I was his first client, which i did not know at the time of hiring him, but still handled my case with more professionalism than ever receiving before. He did a excellent job of keeping in touch and fulfilling requests in a timely matter. Mr. Hendricks was chosen by me because of his past, I originally knew he was a deputy sheriff and than became a probation\parole officer. The experience from that alone put him far ahead of any local attorney. I would suggest this attorney to friends and family. Especially seeing how he will always give that free consultation.

I hired Chris as my divorce attorney. He did a wonderful job. He explained everything in layman's terms and made the whole process easy to understand. It was a painless process. Chris was always available to answer questions and didn't act like he was being bothered. He was so helpful and prompt. It really was an excellent experience, even in light of the situation. Chris made sure everything was exactly the way it was supposed to be ,and that everything was fair for all involved. It was a quick and easy process because of Chris. Chris will be my attorney from now on. Wouldn't go to anyone else. I highly recommend to anyone!!! You won't be disappointed.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Hired him for multiple cases with end results varying from crap all the way up to extremely terrible. He barely tried, even when almost all the evidence he needed was handed to him on a silver platter. He didn't even take care of very simple, bogus charges. The most important case involved children and he blew it. It's almost like he took the money and ran. BE AWARE!! The consultation may go great, but that does not mean your case will.

Managing client expectations is always difficult. Hiring an attorney for a criminal case does not guarantee that criminal charges disappear. Equally regretful is the anonymous review and that my records do not reflect a situation similar to the one you've described.

bad experience
Hired mr hendricks for a divorce, i paid the average going price for local lawyers, in cash. Mr hendricks advised me to agree on a lot of unfavorable things in order to see my daughter for a few hours a month. He promised me that he would step in if the few rights i did not sign away were stepped on. On my very first visit my ex was 4 hours late to a 8 hour visit.. i asked for my time returned or a contempt of court hearing be made, so mr hendricks promptly dropped me and suggested another lawyer.

Managing client expectations is always one of the most difficult tasks facing an attorney, particularly when issues concerning children are involved. I regret that your expectations were not met.
