      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

      What is the 10 day letter? If you are stopped by a law enforcement officer and are arrested for DUI, he may have submitted a DPS form 1205 to the Department of Drivers Services to suspend your driver’s license, if four conditions are met:

      1. You refuse to take the state administered breath or blood test.
      2. If over 21 years of age, you registered .08 or more on the state administered breath test.
      3. If you are under 21 years of age, you registered .02 or more on the state administered breath test.
      4. If you are operating a commercial vehicle and registered .04 or more on the state administered breath test.

      If any of these conditions occur, the officer will take your driver’s license and forward it to the Department of Drivers Service to be suspended. You must file a hearing in 10 business days. This is referred to as the 10 day letter.


      You are given at the time of your arrest a copy of the DPS form 1205, which allows you a 30 day temporary driving permit. You then must file for a hearing within 10 business days of your arrest. This request must be accompanied by a $150.00 fee. If this is done your suspension will not go into effect until you have your hearing at an Administrative License suspension hearing.
