      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

      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

      EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS REPRESENTING DRIVERS FACING DUI WITH A MINOR CHARGES THROUGHOUT MARIETTA & ATLANTA

       

      Driving under the influence is a serious offense in the state of Georgia, more often than not leading to severe penalties if convicted. Such a violation becomes far more consequential if a minor is a passenger at the time of the DUI. For purposes of a DUI, a minor is defined as being a child under the age of 14. Georgia recently expanded their laws in an effort to impose far graver punishments for those driving under the influence while transporting a minor. If you are facing charges for a DUI with a minor offense, it is imperative that you retain strong legal counsel immediately. It is unwise to take this matter lightly, as consequences have the potential to be life-altering. Blevins & Hong, a criminal defense team serving the cities of Atlanta and Marietta, will devise an aggressive and effective strategy to tackle your legal obstacles.

      Georgia’s Child Endangerment Statute – O.C.G.A 40-6-391(I)

      In Georgia, the Child Endangerment Statute covers various situations. Motorists can be accused of this violation by driving under the influence. A DUI with a child under 14 in the car makes this statute applicable. However, charges for child endangerment and DUI cannot be merged under the law. Harsher sentencing and prosecution occurs for both charges in the state of Georgia, which is important to remember.

      Nobody wants to face multiple charges for DUI and child endangerment. Unsurprisingly, the penalties for these offenses are quite severe. Any accused individual must hire an attorney to fight against these charges. Loss of driver’s license, fines, and even jail time are possible penalties here. By hiring a Cobb County DUI attorney, the accused can help avoid the most severe penalties whenever possible.

      WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR DUI WITH A MINOR CHARGE

      Strict Georgia Law dictates that individuals driving under the influence with a child under the age of 14 be charged with DUI Child Endangerment. It is important to realize that such a charge is treated as its own offense. In other words, a DUI Child Endangerment charge will supplement the underlying DUI violation, and carry augmented penalties. Furthermore, a separate DUI Child Endangerment charge will be imposed for each minor passenger at the time of the citation. If you are facing a DUI and two charges of DUI Child Endangerment stemming from a single incident, you run the risk of being treated as a Habitual Violator. In sum, the possibility of losing your driving privileges for up to five years is a distinct reality. Blevins & Hong will explore the circumstances surrounding your predicament, and build a strong defense to present in court.

      BUILDING EFFECTIVE DUI CHILD ENDANGERMENT CASES IN MARIETTA & ATLANTA SINCE 2001

      When confronted with a potentially severe punishment stemming from a DUI Child Endangerment allegation, it is vital to secure an attorney well-versed in harsh Georgia DUI law. Consequences can conceivably alter your life as you know it, even more so for individuals whose careers involve being responsible for children. Physicians, teachers, coaches, bus drivers and those employed by a daycare center are examples of professionals whose lives could be turned upside down following a DUI Child Endangerment conviction. With such high stakes on the line, you cannot risk a feeble defense provided by an inexperienced attorney. Do not jeopardize your future. Consult with the aggressive criminal defense team of Blevins & Hong today. Call (678) 354-2290 to schedule a meeting to discuss your charges and begin planning a strategy to dispute them.
