      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

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.

      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

      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 attorney.read 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 spent.read more

      BEST DUI LAWYER IN MARIETTA GA

      If you have been arrested and charged with DUI, either a first time misdemeanor or a more serious felony charge, you are probably asking yourself, “How can I fight a DUI charge?” At Blevins & Hong, P.C., we have outlined the various defenses that could be employed to fight back, either in court or in negotiations with the prosecuting attorney. We also have highly skilled DUI defense attorneys ready to fight for you. When facing charges on a drunk driving offense, it is imperative that you have legal representation such as a DUI defense attorney working closely with you throughout every step of the legal process.

      Your first call after being arrested must be to a Marietta DUI defense attorney from Blevins & Hong, P.C., who will engage in all legal actions to protect your rights and fight for your freedom. At our firm, we believe that our early involvement can be critical with regard to the final outcome of your case. We urge you to contact our firm immediately if you are under arrest for any misdemeanor or felony DUI offense. Our DUI defense attorney can provide the representation you need.

      ILLEGAL POLICE STOP

      You have rights under the Constitution of the United States. These rights are what make our country unique – but these rights must be upheld and protected. One of the rights is under the 4th Amendment. In cases in which there is no probable cause for the police stop, your civil rights may have been violated. Drivers that have not violated the law, are driving within the speed limits, have current tags, no missing lights, are not swerving or driving erratically should not be pulled over – but it happens. One exception is a roadside sobriety checkpoint.

      These checkpoints are highly restricted in how they are operated, and if you were pulled over within the regulations, it is not illegal. What happens after the stop may have errors, as with any other case. There are DUI charges in which law enforcement claims that a driver was “swerving within their lane.” Any accusation that sounds like the truth is being stretched or that rights were violated must be brought to the attention of the prosecutor or the court. In many cases, when it is established that the police stop was illegal and violated your rights, the evidence obtained will not be admissible, and the case dismissed.

      IMPROPERLY CONDUCTED BREATH OR BLOOD TESTS

      All types of testing are subject to error. When the administration of a breath test has been incorrect, the reading can be wrong. You could be charged with DUI and have actually been well under the limit. Roadside breath testing devices are known to be likely to have errors, and it is important that if you are going to be tested that you do it at the police station, not at roadside. Even when tested at the station, errors can take place. The rules for breath testing to determine blood alcohol content (BAC) include the following requirements. For example, the breath testing unit must have been calibrated and maintained per a specific schedule.

      The unit must be calibrated every 10 days, or every 150 uses, whichever comes first. If this has not been done properly, and there is a difference between a calibration check and actually calibrating the unit, the results could be successfully challenged. The test must be administered at the correct time. Your lawyer must ask for calibration records, as well as records regarding the number of uses of the particular unit if this defense is to be implemented. There are many ways that readings can be faulty. These issues must be carefully reviewed to determine if your case has this potential defense.

      These include whether the subject has dentures (alcohol can be trapped under dentures and lead to a false “high”); whether law enforcement adhered to the rules regarding observation time; whether the person administering the test had been properly trained; whether there was radio frequency interference which could have impacted the test outcome; whether the individual had certain conditions (high hematocrit) that could impact the results; whether temperature or patterns of breathing could have affected the test results; or other specific information that relates to the unique situation of your breath testing that resulted in DUI charges.

      THE BREATH TESTING UNIT: THE INTOXILYZER 5000 & 9000

      This unit is currently approved by the state as the breath testing device to use when testing for alcohol. Some issues have been noted as problems for accurate readings, including cases in which the subject being tested has diabetes, esophageal hernia, heartburn, or certain liver diseases. Get all of these issues evaluated by the best DUI attorney in Marietta you can find.

      THE ARREST PROCEDURE

      An arrest must be carried out correctly. You have rights and if they have been violated you may have your case dismissed. Every detail of the arrest must be fully scrutinized for conflicting reports from law enforcement or other errors. These issues can also be addressed in cross-examination in court. It is surprising how many cases there are in which there are conflicting reports that open the door for you DUI defense attorney and provide opportunities for the accused.
