      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

      Multiple DUI Convictions In Marietta GA

       

      It’s hard enough when you get a single DUI conviction. You are facing fines that range from $300 to $1,000, up to a year in jail as well as up to 12 months of having your license suspended. You will have a criminal record and will not be able to drive. However, for each additional DUI charge, the severity of the consequences will increase dramatically. Blevins & Hong, P.C. offer extensive experience defending cases of multiple DUI in Cobb County and they have a thorough knowledge of Georgia’s laws regarding DUI. We have the ability to aggressively defend anyone facing multiple DUIs in Marietta.

      Consequences for Multiple DUI Convictions

      A person can face fines of $600 to $1,000, jail time of up to a year (72 hours mandatory with a minimum of 90 days), community service of 30 days and up to 3 years license revocation, for a second DUI. If you are charged with a third DUI, fines increase to a minimum of $1,000 up to $5,000, jail time can be up to a year with 15 days mandatory and 120 days minimum; additionally, you could face up to five years with a suspended license. A fourth DUI results in a fine of $1,000, minimum, up to five years in jail and is a felony conviction.

      Alcohol Laws And DUIs In Cobb County, Georgia

      Georgia State driving law prohibits drivers from driving a motor vehicle when their BAC (blood alcohol concentration) is .08% or above. This is the standard limit all across the United States. There are also laws, separate from this one, that set lower BAC limits on under age 21 drivers as well as commercial drivers. They also enforce their ‘Open Container Law‘.

      Their open container law states that any alcoholic beverage container with any amount of alcohol in it that is open is a violation of this law. That includes any containers that have broken seals, or any containers that have even had any alcohol partially removed along the roadway or shoulder of a public highway, will cost the driver a fine of $200.

      So how many drinks would it take to be over the legal limit in the state of Georgia? There is not one simple answer to this. Each individual has their own specific metabolism which will determine what this number is for them. Things like body fat, overall weight, and length of time in between drinks will all play a part in determining the impairment of the person in question.

      Studies have shown that for each individual drink you have, your BAC can go up as much as .05%. What that means is that it takes very small amounts of alcohol to go over the legal limit and be legally drunk. The penalties and risks for drunk driving make it not worth becoming impaired.

      In Cobb County, Georgia the law permits a prosecuting attorney to make the decision to reduce some DUI charges down to reckless driving. However, you should consider two things –

      1. Your record is going to show a disposition for DUIs, and you could receive the exact same penalties if you receive a DUI conviction.
      2. Having your DUI reduced to reckless driving mostly only happens in instances of first offense. Multiple DUI charges carry severe punishment and penalties.
