      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

      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 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 more

      Administrative License Suspension Hearing 2017-07-21T21:58:20+00:00

      Agressive Defense for DUI Charges

      Have you been arrested for drinking and driving? Call us today at 678-354-2290

      Notice: Georgia’s Administrative License Suspension rules have changed as of July, 1, 2017. Click here.


      If you requested an Administrative License Suspension Hearing (ALS) by filing a letter within 30 days of your arrest, you will be affording a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. Several things can occur at the hearing. The Officer may not show for the hearing. If this is the case, your attorney will file a motion to resend the suspension with the Court; thus dismissing the request to suspend your driver’s license.

      If the officer shows, three things can then occur. First, the officer may agree to a unilateral withdrawal of your suspension. This means, he is dismissing the request to suspend your license. Secondly, the officer and you may enter into a joint withdrawal of your suspension. This will require you to enter a guilty plea to DUI in Court in exchange for the officer dismissing the suspension petition. Finally, you can have a hearing in from of the Administrative Law Judge. The standard of proof is lower than a criminal trial and the only results of the hearing are that your license will be suspended or the petition is dismissed.

      What to Expect if a hearing is Not Requested

      Failure to request a hearing will automatically result in the suspension of your license on the 46th day. In case you refuse to submit to a given testing, your license will be placed under a one-year suspension. You will also not qualify to apply even for a restricted or limited license. You must be aware that there are no exceptions that exist in cases of refusal so you need to be careful and ready to hire a counsel right away.

      During the hearing, your Cobb County DUI Attorney may be able to argue the arrest for DUI or the violation of Georgia Implied Consent Law due to lack of probable cause. The arresting officer or any officer present must read the Georgia implied consent warning during the time of the arrest. They also need to correctly answer all your questions in accordance to the implied consent law.

      If the response of the arresting officer contradicts what is stated in the implied consent warning of Georgia, the State may lose its power to use necessary chemical examinations. These types of examinations include a blood test, breath test, or urine test that can be used against you in court.

      There are potential defenses in Georgia during your ALS hearing. While many attorneys easily assume guilty or lose their hope from day one, every case still needs to go through proper investigation. Below are some of the potential defenses that you need to know:

      1. Was the implied consent delivered substantially correct?
      2. Was the reading of the implied consent warning close to the time of the arrest?
      3. Did the information provided by the arresting officer contrary to the meaning of Georgia implied consent warning?
      4. Did the officer state the correct warning to the suspect of DUI as how the commercial warning among CDL drivers for those under the age of 21 should be delivered?
      5. Did the arresting officer ignore to choose any actual and designated analysis like breath test?
      6. Did you agree to take a test and then the officer said that it was too late for it?
      7. Did you request for an independent test and not accommodated?
      8. If there was a roadblock, was it handled in a constitutional way?
      9. Was the arrested driver put in custody for the purpose of Miranda warnings?


      If your license is suspended and it is a test case and this is your first DUI, you may be eligible for a temporary driving permit for 45 days. After 45 days you can apply to get your license reinstated upon showing proof of completion of the Risk Reduction Course (DUI School) and paying a restoration fee. If you are suspended because you refused the test, you are not eligible for a limited driving permit. You license will remain suspended for one year or if your DUI is reduced or dismissed in Court, whichever comes first.
