Hendrick & Henry Law are Georgia traffic and speeding ticket lawyers with proven success in courts across the state of Georgia for Following Too Closely Tickets.
We have developed a highly specialized division of our firm dealing only with Georgia traffic and speeding issues.

For over thirteen years, the traffic division attorneys at Hendrick & Henry have cultivated these relationships and will put them to work for you.
Your driving record is very valuable, even though most people don’t know it.
The premium you pay for your insurance is based on several variables. By far the most significant variable is your driving record. Any conviction, even for minor infractions, will show up on your driving record.
Then your insurance company will raise your rates. They will stay elevated for 3-5 (sometimes 7!) years. Over this time, you will literally pay thousands in additional premiums. To verify this, we encourage you to call your insurance agent to ask them what effect a conviction will have on your premium. We can save you thousands by avoiding this.
The easiest way your insurance company discovers a conviction is through your driving record. We are very successful in avoiding ANY record. We can prevent ANY points from being assessed. Recently, we’ve seen a push by some data-mining companies to find infractions even if they are not on your driving record (other ticket defense firms won’t tell you this). Then they sell this information to your insurance company so they can raise your rates. At Hendrick and Henry, we do everything in our power to make this difficult for your insurance company.
We do all the work and appear on your behalf. Whenever possible. It’s that simple.
