Further, he has been an invited guest lecturer to the legal studies and paralegal programs at Clayton State University and Georgia State University.
Personally, Mr. Hendrix enjoys spending time with his wife (Vicki) and his three children (Sammy, Harrison & Max). This keeps him busy, especially coaching soccer, baseball and basketball when not shuttling the kids to Cub Scouts, Jiu Jitsu and parkour competitions; along with math team, student council, robotics team and piano lessons. When not busy with the kids, he is passionate about following his beloved Georgia Bulldogs and traveling (especially to Las Vegas).
