      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 value.read 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 him.read 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 am.read more

      Richard is excellent to work with. As a former law enforcement officer, Richard has incredible knowledge and his work ethic sets him apart from other legal experts. He took the time to explain all aspects of my situation to me and genuinely cared about the outcome of my case. I recommend him and his team to anyone. Richard and his team gave me the confidence I needed during all phases of my case. You won't find a more attentive, tenacious attorney.read more

      Had an unfortunate situation occur at the top of 2016 that surely would've followed me throughout the entirety of my professional career. Attorney Soo Hong was a true God send. Ms. Hong was professional, courteous and very knowledgeable. I was almost certain that even with legal counsel my situation could only be lessened but not totally relieved. I'm not sure how she managed but to my surprise my case was dismissed a few days ago. Even so she has still been available to answer lingering questions and help with advice. My five star rating is an understatement if you ask me. Money well spent.read more

      PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF THE ACCUSED IN GEORGIA

      If you have been arrested or accused of committing a crime, you should have an experienced criminal defense attorney by your side to protect your rights and provide the best possible defense in your case. However serious the charges may be, with the proper legal counsel and an aggressive and dedicated commitment to your defense, you will know that everything that can be done will be done. We understand that the criminal justice system is complex and can be difficult to navigate without the firm hand of the experience that comes from having successfully defended many cases in local, state and federal courtrooms. Our goal in defending each of our clients is to win. Seek help from Blevins & Hong, P.C. for the aggressive representation that you need. Our expertise in criminal defense includes matters such as:

      WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER YOU HAVE BEEN CHARGED

      Once you have been arrested, what happens now? First, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. The State has began to develop their case since the Police Officer stopped you or were called out to investigate whatever incident caused you to get arrested. Your attorney can begin to interview witnesses and evaluate evidence to support your defense.

      Probable Cause and Bond Hearing

      You have a right to have a Probable Cause Hearing before a Magistrate Judge. This is allowed only if your case has not been accused or indicted and if you haven’t bonded out of jail. This hearing allows you to cross exam the arresting officer. Hearsay is admissible. The Judge is only looking to see if the arresting officer had probable cause to arrest you. After the Probable Cause Hearing, you can request a Bond Hearing. You can request the Judge to set a bond or reduce the current bond if it is too high to post.

      Arraignment

      This stage of your case will occur after the State files an accusation or a Grand Jury returns a bill of indictment. The State can elect to use the same charges in the arrest warrant or different charges. They don’t have to be the same. However, what is listed in the accusation or indictment must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt by the State. At the arraignment, you enter you plea of guilty or not guilty. If you enter a plea of guilty your case will be over after a plea. If you pled not guilty, your case will continue to the next stage.

      Motions

      At a motions hearing, your attorneys at Blevins & Hong, P.C. will file any appropriate motion to suppress or keep out any unlawfully obtained evidence in the case. A Judge will rule on the testimony at the motion hearing and look at all relevant case law. If the Judge grants the motion then this could end your case or limit the State’s case. This could result in a dismissal or a great plea offer.

      Plea Bargain

      At any stage in the criminal justice process, plea-bargaining can occur. This is when the State and your attorney try to work out a reasonable resolution to your case. If you agree to a negotiated plea offer, then your case will be resolved by a plea before the Judge. If you do not like the plea offer and do not wish to go to trial, you can have a non-negotiated plea before the Judge. The Judge will accept your plea and decide on your sentence.

      Trial

      If you don’t wish to plea to any charge, you have an absolute right to a trial by jury. You can opt for a bench or Judge trial, but this must be agreed to by the State, unless you are in Probate Court or Municipal Court. A jury of 12 in a felony case and 6 in a misdemeanor case will determine if you are guilty or not guilty of each charge against you. The Judge will determine your sentence.
