      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

      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 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

      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.

      DUI and Drug Charges

      State law prohibits driving while under the influence of any drug that has the possibility of impairing your ability to safely operate your vehicle, including prescription drugs legally prescribed by a qualified medical professional. Controlled substances, such as marijuana, cocaine, meth, ecstasy have added legal problems if you are believed to be driving while under the influence. In fact, in our state, you cannot operate a vehicle with controlled substances in your bloodstream – even when driving in a safe manner and without any sign of impairment. You may also face further charges for drug possession if a controlled substance is found in your vehicle when searched.

      Those who are arrested for drug possession will face a driver’s license suspension, even if that person was not operating a vehicle at the time. State legislators have enacted a series of very strict laws regarding the use of drugs and the impact upon your legal right to drive. Police could pull you over for a minor traffic violation, or because it is alleged that you were driving erratically or in an unsafe manner, such as speeding or reckless driving, or the issue could arise due to an accident. If you are tested for alcohol and the test is negative, law enforcement could believe that you were under the influence of a drug, and require you to have a blood test to identify the substance. There are also cases in which some drug paraphernalia is visible and present in the vehicle, or when it is alleged that there was the odor of marijuana in the car.

      At Blevins & Hong, P.C., our criminal defense lawyers are committed to providing aggressive defense counsel to clients facing charges involving drugs and DUI. You can review our results for more information. We are former prosecuting attorneys and we know exactly what to look for in defending any type of drugs & DUI charges. You may have been the victim of an illegal search – if so, you can be confident that every possible action will be taken to have any evidence illegally obtained determined to be inadmissible.

      DRIVER’S LICENSE SUSPENSION IN DRUG VIOLATIONS IN GEORGIA

      Under O.C.G.A.§ 40-5-75 (2012), those who are convicted of any violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act, including all types of violations such as drug possession, drug distribution, manufacturing, cultivation, sale, transfer, trafficking, drug conspiracy or other type of drug-related offense will face certain penalties. A first conviction can lead to a license suspension of up to 180 days. Upon completion of the suspension, the individual is required to submit evidence of completion of a state approved Drug Use Risk Reduction Program, as will be forced to pay the Dept. of Driver Services a driver’s license restoration fee at a cost of $210 (or $200 if processed through the mail).

      If your plea was “nolo contendere” or “no contest” you face the same repercussions – the requirements will still be imposed upon you in order to regain your legal right to drive. If you have a second drug offense within a 5 year period of time (including cases of nolo contendere), the period of license suspension is increased to 3 years. After one year, you will have the right to apply for reinstatement with certain terms: once again the Risk Reduction program must have been completed, and evidence of the completion submitted, and to reinstate your license you will be required to pay a fee of $310 (or $300 if submitted by mail).

      For a third conviction (or plea of nolo contendere) within a 5 year period, the penalties are far worse, as your license will be suspended for 5 years. At our firm, we are committed to assisting those who are facing drug and DUI charges in the Marietta area. The case against you may have serious flaws. As former prosecutors, we know exactly what to look for. Get in touch with us immediately for assistance. Your future ability to drive could rest on the action taken early in your case.
