      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

      About Bail & Bond

      MARIETTA CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER

      If you or a loved one has been arrested, it is likely that bail will be set and must be paid before you can be released from jail. After the arrest and after being booked into police custody, a judge may preset a bail amount that can be paid for your conditional release or a bond hearing may be set to determine if it will be set. In order to make bail and bond, you must promise to appear in court for all subsequent hearings, pre-trial motions and trial. If you fail to appear at any of these court proceedings as you are scheduled, your bail will be forfeited and you will be sought for immediate arrest. If due to the nature of the crime bail is unlikely or denied, there are other options, such as home confinement. If you would like further information about these options or the bail and bond process, it is wise to make immediate contact with a Marietta criminal attorney for legal guidance. The attorneys at Blevins & Hong will be happy to walk you through the process of bail and bond and answer any questions you may have.

      INFORMATION ON POSTING BAIL

      Bail amounts are generally set based upon certain criteria surrounding your alleged crime, including the severity of the charge, injury caused to others, your criminal record, risk of flight and danger you might pose if you are released. There are two ways you and your family can personally post the amount:

      1. Cash—If the bail is low enough, you may be able to simply pay the amount and get out of jail. While coming up with the money can be difficult, it is returned after the case is over. This is perhaps the quickest and most straight-forward way of posting bail.
      2. Property—If you do not have the cash, but do have assets, you may use assets as collateral to cover the bail. The catch is that you often have to provide double the cash value in the equity of the property. So a $10,000 cash bail could require $20,000 worth of equity.

      If you or your family cannot post the full bail amount, there is a third option. Assistance is available in the form of a bail bond which can be posted in lieu of bail. Bonds are a written guarantee to pay the court your full bail amount should you fail to appear. Bond agencies generally charge fee of up to 12%-15%, depending on the amount of the bail, and may demand other forms of collateral to protect their interests.
