      I was shattered with the overwhelming charge in my otherwise immaculate 40 years of life. While desperately browsing the internet for good attorney, I came across Mr. Blevins profile, who back then had received 5 stars rating from 50 folks. That’s an outstanding rating to trust anyone. With that background, I went to him to handle my case. Mr. Blevins met all my expectations and indeed did an incredible job & brought the case a desirable outcome for me and got my life back on track. During my interactions with him I realized that he has a ton of experiences and knows the GA law in and out. He is also very well connected within the GA law community. He is prompt & supportive and drives the case pretty well. With a great pleasure & honor, I would like endorse him with yet another 5 star. I strongly strongly strongly recommend him!read more

      I retained Mr. Blevins to represent me for a misdemeanor affray charge and he got the charges dismissed. He was very receptive, very open, available (shared his personal cell with me for any after hour questions), and effective. He communicated well and efficiently. Would certainly recommend him to everyone. Cost was very reasonable and definitely worth the more

      Richard Blevins did a GREAT job for us on two cases. On one case he was able to minimize the impact of a DUI charge. He was able to get the other case dismissed after we followed his recommendations prior to our court date. He’s very knowledgeable and familiar with what needs to be done to handle your case. I highly recommend hiring more

      GREAT LAWYER; OUTSTANDING LAW FIRM AND BEYOND COMPARISON Richard Blevins Jr. had my best interest in mind from the moment I met with him through the months that we worked together. He WILL work for you and will use his extensive knowledge and network of the legal system to get you the best outcome. His office staffs were very responsive and would communicate and send me all the documents throughout the court proceedings. Mr. Blevins would also directly call and communicate with you to keep matters aligned and up-to-date. Listen to him, trust his advice, and do what he says as he has the expertise and confidence to tackle your case. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mr. Blevins to anyone who finds themselves in a difficult situation. He is the best lawyer in Cobb County and one of the BEST in Georgia!read more

      Selecting an attorney is something we don’t do often and it can be an intimidating process. For me, there are 4 important questions to keep in mind: 1. How knowledgeable is the attorney and will they be able to identify all the possible options for your situation? 2. How honest and transparent will the attorney be with you on the possible outcome of your situation? 3. Will the attorney work hard and stay persistent to achieve the best possible outcome for your situation? 4. What will the legal representation cost? I can testify that Richard Blevins of Blevins & Hong is extremely knowledgeable on the law and in our case, could identify options that we didn’t even know existed. He was honest about the unlikelihood of the best outcome but was willing to work hard to try to achieve that for us at a very reasonable cost. In our case, Richard was able to make the improbable best outcome a reality. Richard’s knowledge of the law, experience in the courtroom, hard work and commitment to resolving the case in our best interest were the keys to our success. Choosing the right attorney can be a difficult decision, make the right choice and give Richard Blevins a call. You will be glad you did, I certainly more

      What Property can you Keep in Bankruptcy?

      If you are a Georgia resident who is currently researching bankruptcy, you may be worried about losing some of your most prized possessions. Thankfully, there are some exemptions in a Georgia bankruptcy which may allow you to keep some of these items that you are hesitant to part with. Georgia allows you to choose between two different sets of exemptions depending on whether you file for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

      The first bankruptcy exemption system that you can use allows homestead exemption. This will protect a certain amount of equity in your principal residence. This exemption does not extend to summer homes, cabins, rental properties, or any other real estate that is not considered your primary residence. If you live in the property, then you can exempt it. This means that if you are currently living in a boat or a mobile home then this item would be exempt but if you are not then the item will probably be subject to liquidation in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

      If you are single and not disabled then you can receive up to $75,000 of exempt equity in your property and you can receive up to $100,000 of the equity if you are part of a family and at least one family member has no interest in the homestead. If you are 65 or older or are physically or mentally disabled then you can have an $185,000 exemption. Also, if you are 55 or older and single and earn under $25,000 and creditors are also seeking the force sale of your home, you can have a $175,000 exemption. In addition, if you are 55 or older, creditors are already seeking the forced sale of your home, and you are earning under $35,000 per year you can have this highest exemption amount.

      Under the first bankruptcy system that is provided in Georgia, you can also gain a $2,725 exemption on your motor vehicle and will have an exemption for all jewelry, heirlooms and works of art up to $7,175. Ass well, you can keep health aids and personal injury and wrongful death recoveries. You can also keep your cemetery and burial pots, residential building materials up to $2,875 and household items and personal effects.

      Bankruptcy filers using this system in Georgia will be able to recover 75% of their income within 30 days prior to filing bankruptcy and will be allowed to keep any public employee vacation credits. There are also some retirement and pension exemptions and public benefits that you will want to look into to make sure that you are getting the exemptions that you are legally entitled to under system one. You can also keep disability and health insurance, fidelity bonds, and business or professional licenses.

      Under system 2 in Georgia you can have a $24,969 exemption on all real property and will be able to exempt up to $4,800 on a motor vehicle. Under this system, there are also provisions for health aids, jewelry and heirlooms up to $1,425, clothing, household goods, appliances, animals, and other personal effects up to $600 per item, and a burial plot of up to $24,060.

      In addition to this, those who use system two are permitted to keep all alimony and child support benefits, tools of trade up to $7,175, retirement pensions and IRAs up to $1,1717,150 and pensions, annuities and benefits that are necessary for support. In addition, System two allows a person to have a filer to keep all unmatured life insurance policies, accrued interest dividends, loans, cash or surrender values and disability benefits. If you want more information about both of these highly details systems, then you need to talk to an attorney at Blevins & Hong, P.C. today. The Marietta bankruptcy attorneys at this firm can help you to better understand the aspects of a Georgia bankruptcy and determine which system is best for you based on the exemptions that are allowed.
