Cindy Fraschilla, Traffic Defense Director
Cindy, a paralegal by trade, has been managing the traffic department of The Law Offices of Troy P. Hendrick since its inception over 5 years ago. As a result, Cindy has developed a personal relationship with many of the court personnel that have an affect on our clients’ cases. She has attended educational and informational sessions offered by the Department of Drivers’ Services to stay abreast of new developments in the “rules of the road,” and to further strengthen and understand the sometimes murky area of drivers’ licenses and the laws and regulations affecting them. She, her husband and three children live in Snellville, Georgia where she stays busy successfully juggling the hectic pace of three teenage children and a career.
