I was charged back in July of 2016, for a DUI. I will keep it short and sweet but will give facts. When I was stopped, I was being pulled over for not having my lights on, which I admitted to. I was in Central City, KY for work and driving a rental. I had 1 drink 6 hours prior to going back to hotel for the evening, along with a meal. When the officer came back running my information, he told me he smelt alcohol and wanted me to step out of the vehicle. So I followed all his commands and request for test. I completed all test fine and no issue, according to the officer. When I denied taking a breathe test that when he said he could smell alcohol on my breath, "9ft away". Yes that's what the officer said in court.
So then the research came in finding an attorney, which I've never had to do, ever. I'm not perfect but I do my best to not put myself into these types of situations. After spending hours calling around, looking up reviews on attorneys around the area, I finally came across Mr. Joe Hendricks. After talking with Joe on the phone, we agreed to meet in person. After myself and my co worker talked to him, who was a witness, we both felt comfortable that he was the one that I could trust to make a strong case for me and present facts that could support my innocence. My trial date was November of 2016. Joe had nothing but facts in hand in the courtroom and showed the jury that I followed the officers instructions to perform his FST.
Even though I was found innocent, this was still a life lesson learned. I have to thank Joe for being there by my side through it all and making me feel calm throughout the whole process. I would definitely recommend Joe in the states he's licensed in if you run into this situation. Five star attorney! Can't be anymore thankful for Joe and his team.

I'm writing this from a parents point of view. Our son has never been in this position with having a DUI, and being in another state made this more difficult and challenging. He went through a lot the night of his arrest and had to spend the night in a cold jail cell. We started searching online and through this site, found Mr Hendricks with high recommendations. The next day our son had a consultation with him and felt very comfortable using him as his attorney for his case.
Mr Hendricks believed in his case from the beginning and told him he would be there for him the whole way even if it went to trial. Which it did end up going to trial. Mr. Hendrick's was confident in his case and gave him the peace of mind to believe in him. The laws in DUI cases are very complex, but he was well educated and versed. He is relentless in obtaining every fact relevant to your circumstances. He is deeply involved in legal research, strongly versed in his knowledge of the law, and operates on an intellectual and professional level.
He took a step by step approach with bringing all the evidence out in the court room. Needless to say the out come was the best news ever - NOT GUILTY!
If you ever need an attorney in Kentucky or Tennessee Joe Hendricks is the first attorney I would call.

I had never been in any real legal trouble and i was accussed of something i had no part in i was actually at work but they still indicted me and mr. Hendricks worked extremely hard to get all the evidence to prove my innocence through phone records my history records every record he could and he talked to me about every step we were going to take and actually explained it so i could understand what was going on or about to happen hamds down i will never use another lawyer as long as he is a lawyer anyone wanting or needing a great lawyer he should be your first pick
