      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

      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

      Criminal Law Regarding Vehicular Homicide

      Under Georgia statute, vehicular homicide, also known as homicide by a vehicle, is defined by the unlawful killing of a person using a motor vehicle. It is often accompanied by another charge, such as driving under the influence, driving while intoxicated, or operation under the influence.

      Felony Vehicular Homicide

      In the state of Georgia, it is considered a felony if a person causes death to an individual as the result of certain traffic violations. This offense is called Vehicular Homicide in the First Degree.

      Offenses such as unlawful passing of a school bus, DUI, reckless driving, and eluding and fleeing a police officer, resulting in death are considered felony vehicular homicide. If the person is found guilty, they can be sentenced to 3 to 15 years in prison. If a person causes an accident where someone died and then leaves the scene of the accident, that person would be guilty of vehicular homicide, and can also be serve 3 to 15 years in prison.

      In order for a person to be found guilty of vehicular homicide, the judge or jury must first find that the individual violated one of the above traffic violations. They must then find that the unlawful act was without a doubt the cause of death.

      License Suspension After Felony Vehicular Manslaughter

      If a person is convicted of felony vehicular homicide, their license would be suspended for 3 years and they would not be able to get a work permit.

      Misdemeanor Vehicular Homicide

      In the state of Georgia, if a person causes the death of another person as a result of a traffic violation that does not fall into the felony statute would be charged with vehicular homicide in the 2nd degree. An example of this charge would be if a person runs a red light and strikes another vehicle because of it, causing death. This is considered a misdemeanor, and the individual can be sentenced to 12 months in prison.

      In order for a person to be found guilty of this charge, the judge and jury must first find that the person committed the traffic offense that they are being charged with. They must also find that the unlawful act is what caused the individual’s death.

      License Suspension After Misdemeanor Vehicular Homicide

      If a person is convicted of misdemeanor vehicular homicide, their license would be suspended for 120 days, however, they would be eligible for a work permit.


      In Georgia, if a person causes and accident and an unborn child is killed, depending what stage of development the fetus was in, the person can be charged with Feticide by Vehicle. If the circumstances surrounding the accident are the same as felony vehicular manslaughter, the punishment would be the same. If the circumstances were the same as misdemeanor vehicular homicide, the punishment would be the same.

      Serious Injury by Vehicle

      Under Georgia criminal law, if a person causes serious injury to another person as a result of DUI or reckless driving, they could be charged with serious injury by vehicle. Serious injury would be an injury which resulted in rendering a part of the body useless, disfigurement, loss of limb, or organic brain damage.

      For example, if a broken bone or stitches caused scarring, it would be considered a serious injury. If a person lost their ability to walk as a result of the accident, it would be considered a serious injury. This charge can result in one to 15 years in prison.

      In order to be found guilty of this charge, a judge or jury must find that the person was driving recklessly or DUI. They must then find that the unlawful act was the cause of the individual’s injury.

      If a person is convicted of serious injury by vehicle, they can lose their driver’s license for 3 years with no possibility of getting a work permit.
