      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

      When it comes to knowing the law Blevins and Hong is here for you. We are experts with not only the knowledge, but also the experience to help you. There are multiple types of license suspensions, forms and rules that can be affected by the age or class of a driver. Each case is different and unique so please do not try to handle these on your own. A little bit of overview information is provided below, but ultimately call our law offices immediately for sound and expert counsel. Let’s go over DUI suspensions.


      There are two categories of DUI alcohol suspensions and both are listed and briefly explained below.

      • Administrative license suspension (ALS) and implied consent suspensions
      • Court generated suspensions based on a DUI alcohol conviction

      Once you are stopped and arrested for an alcohol related DUI, the arresting officer may complete a DDS 1205 form that will suspend your driver’s license in 30 days, if you do not request a hearing within 10 business days of the DUI arrest.

      Administrative license suspension

      If you take the State’s breath test and register over .08 on your BAC or more for individuals over 21, this is what you are looking at if you fail to request the ALS hearing or lose the hearing:

      • 1st DUI in 5 years = 1 year (limited permit for 30 days and reinstatement after 30 days)
      • 2nd DUI in 5 years = 18 months
      • 3rd DUI in 5 years = 5 years
      • Implied Consent suspensions: If you are arrested in the state of Georgia and refuse to take either test that the officer is trying to administer don’t think that it won’t come back to haunt you. The reality is that the courts can use your denial to take that test as evidence against you for a DUI. Do not risk it. Call one of our attorneys immediately.


      If you are convicted of an alcohol related DUI, your conviction will be reported to the Georgia Department of Drivers Services and they will suspend your privilege to drive in Georgia.

      Over 21 years of age:

      • 1st DUI in five years on Per se cases = 1 year (eligible for a limited permit for 120 days and reinstatement after 120 days)
      • 2nd DUI in five years = 3 years (eligible for an ignition interlock after 120 days hard suspension. Ignition interlock must be maintained for 12 months and then the driver will have a 6 month limited permit, only if they are enrolled in DUI court or clinical treatment. The permit must be approved by the court.)
      • 3rd DUI in five years = 5 years (You will be declared a habitual violator and eligible for a probationary license in 2 years.
