      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.

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

      DEBUNKING COMMON BANKRUPTCY MYTHS

      AFFORDABLE BANKRUPTCY LAWYER IN COBB COUNTY

      Due to the extremity of filing for bankruptcy, it is not uncommon that most people are unsure and even a little fearful of the process. There are lots of bankruptcy misconceptions out there. This stems from sheer misunderstanding – an uncertainty as to what bankruptcy actually entails and how it will affect your credit, future and more. At Blevins & Hong, P.C., we know that there are some drawbacks to filing for bankruptcy, but we also know that there are countless benefits. To give visitors a better understanding of the process, we have included some of the most common bankruptcy “myths,” with the actual truth. Please read below to get the truth about this debt relief process:

      Myth #1: Bankruptcy is going to take everything that I own.

      This is one of the largest fears regarding bankruptcy and the one belief that most commonly keeps people from filing. The truth is that filing for bankruptcy will not strip away everything that you own. The idea of being left out on the street after filing is a complete and absolute myth. The truth is that how much you have left is completely dependent on what chapter you file for. If you file Chapter 13, you won’t lose a single item. Instead of liquidation, you will simply reorganize your debts into more manageable payments. If you file for Chapter 7, you may risk losing some items, but exemption laws will protect you. Let’s go over the common bankruptcy misconceptions.

      Myth #2: If I file for bankruptcy, all of my debt will be discharged.

      Unfortunately, this is completely untrue. Debts are categorized into two separate categories – secured and unsecured. Secured debts include things like debts accrued from court-ordered payments (ex: child support or personal injury lawsuits). These types of debts cannot be discharged, regardless of the type of bankruptcy that you file. You may, however, be able to have your unsecured debts discharged. This will include things like credit card debt. The best way to know for sure is to discuss your case with a knowledgeable Marietta bankruptcy attorney.

      Myth #3: Everyone is going to know that I filed.

      It is true that bankruptcy is a public process. This, however, does not necessarily mean that it will become public knowledge. In some places, lower publications will run a list of all of the recent bankruptcy filings, but as so many people are filing, very few find the room to publish all of the names. It is even fewer people who will take the time to read through these massive lists. Therefore, chances are that unless you are a famous or public figure, no one will know about you filing for bankruptcy except those you tell.

      Myth #4: Bankruptcy is for people who are irresponsible.

      One of the things that keep most people from filing is the idea that only financially irresponsible people ever file for bankruptcy. This is a dangerous belief. The truth is that filing for bankruptcy is a viable solution for getting control of their finances. In fact, some incredibly successful people have had to file before – including Walt Disney, Henry Ford, and Donald Trump to name a few. Don’t let embarrassment keep you from seeking the help you need. Bankruptcy is a financial tool and it should be used as such.

      Myth #5: If I file for bankruptcy, my spouse will need to file as well.

      You are absolutely allowed to file for bankruptcy separately from your spouse. This, however, does not mean that you should. If you file, bankruptcy law will protect you. However, if your spouse chooses to not file, they will not be. Hence, your spouse could be held accountable for the debts and still be contacted by creditors attempting to collect. Therefore, talk to your spouse and together determine the best course of action for you both.
