      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

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

      UNDER 21 DUI IN COBB COUNTY

      In Georgia, the legal drinking age is 21 years old. There are exceptions to the drinking age; however, and those include drinking for religious and medical purposes or with the consent of a legal guardian. With the consent of a legal guardian, you must be on private, non- alcohol- selling premises. An example would be at a party with the permission from parents. Religious purposes could be any type of ceremony that involves consuming alcohol. Medical purposes must be administered by a physician for some sort of treatment. While these exceptions are in place for drinking alcohol, there is not an exception for driving under the influence while under age 21. An under 21 DUI charge can stay on your record. The standards for DUI convictions are harsher if under the age of 21 due to the disproportionate number of alcohol-related deaths caused by underage drinkers in Georgia. If an underage drinker has a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .02% or higher, they could be charged with driving under the influence. If you are facing these charges, you need to team up with a skilled Marietta DUI attorney from Blevins & Hong, P.C.

      PENALTIES FOR UNDERAGE DUI CONVICTIONS IN GA

      The consequences for a DUI conviction depend on the BAC level of the underage drinker and also if there are previous convictions. The potential penalties for underage DUI offenses include:

      1st DUI Conviction:

      BAC between .02% and .08%

      • Six month license suspension

      • Community service for 20 hours

      • Fine of between $300 and $1,000

      BAC above .08%

      • Jail time of at least 24 hours

      • One year license suspension

      • Community service for 40 hours

      • Fine of between $300 and $1,000

      2nd DUI Conviction:

      • Minimum of three days in prison

      • A fine between $600 and $1,000

      • Three year license suspension

      • At least 30 hours of community service

      There can also be penalties issued if the underage drinker refuses to perform a chemical test. Georgia has an implied consent law that requires all drivers to perform a breath, blood or urine test to determine their BAC level.

      OTHER CHARGES WITH UNDERAGE DUI IN MARIETTA, GA

      When facing underage DUI charges, there is a chance that you may be at risk of further offenses. If you purchased the alcohol with false identification, there could be other penalties. Also, you could be charged with being in possession of alcohol, soliciting alcohol, distributing alcohol to minors and any other offenses in your case. If the arresting officer notices any of the additional factors in your case, the consequences could continue to increase. You could also face problems with your insurance company. Oftentimes, insurance companies raise the monthly price of insurance after a DUI conviction. There are some companies that may even terminate your policy if you are convicted of an underage DUI. You will need to determine the specific consequence, if any, that your insurance company may exercise.
