Rating my lawyer
Mr. Blevins started out by explaining the court process on my case and if it was winnable. He kept in touch with me throughout my court procedure and was easily contacted should I have any questions or concerns about my case. He was courteous and respectful throughout my court procedure. I highly recommend him!

Divorce/Custody
Mr. Blevins handled everything and took the time to answer all my questions. I had confidence that everything was going to be done to the best of his ability. It really showed how detailed and organized he was. He was always early and well prepared for all hearings and meetings.

Top-Notch Homeowners Association Representation
Mr. Blevins successfully represented our homeowner's association in a case in which a property had fallen into a non-paying situation regarding monthly assessments. He litigated a full recovery of our assets. We deeply appreciate the knowledge and representation of Mr. Blevins and highly recommend him when you need skilled professional counsel.

Excellent legal representation; great communication
I've been involved in a child custody dispute that has spanned 13 years. Mr. Blevins brought a close to this case and was very prompt with information. I can say hands down this is the best family law attorney I've used in the last 13 years. I am very thankful I retained this attorney; without his help I do not believe i would have received a favorable outcome.

Competent lawyer
Mr. Blevins did an awesome job representing my family in a juvenile case. I am grateful to have met him. In a case that seemed impossible to be heard or helped Mr. Blevins handled the matter swiftly, he listened, he is exceptionally competent, ethical, and caring.

Reassuring
I hired Mr. Blevins to represent me in a civil case that is still ongoing. He has been very professional. Mr. Blevins keeps me informed as the case progresses. He personally responds to my questions in a timely manner. It is reassuring to know I have such a competent attorney representing me and protecting my rights. Knowing he is representing me, has given me peace of mind in a case that has potential to be very stressful. I highly recommend Mr. Blevins.

Highly Recommended!!
I hired Mr. Blevins on my brother's behalf and I don't think I could've hired a better attorney. I heard of him from a friend. Very professional, responds back in a timely manner and I never had to talk with a secretary. He exceeded all of my expectations for this case. My brother had 2 felony charges and 2 misdemeanors and the entire case was dismissed. I do believe if I had never hired Blevins my brother would still be fighting these charges.

divorce/child-custody case
I had the privilege of working with Jerry Blevins for the past 20 months and continue to work with him to this day. Specifically, he helped with my divorce/child-custody case. During my initial search for an attorney I was looking for someone organized, timely, available & knowledgeable. During my time with Jerry Blevins, he’s met each of those items—no issues at all. I had complete faith in his management of my case. He didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear (I mean this in a positive way…I appreciated it), he told me the facts and why he recommended a particular course of action but also listened if I wanted to go against it. Also, Jerry did not rack up my bill with pointless issues like some attorneys will. He was honest and to the point (works on Law, not emotion). I provided him all the facts of the case and he guided our attack efficiently and aggressively. I have been happy with the results (won my case). I highly recommend Jerry as an attorney… He will posture any case for success setting up the best possible outcome. Other notes: Clean/organized office Responsive to telephone calls/emails Good reputation in the court room & from fellow attorneys Never missed an appointment/deadline/meeting Superior writer Can translate my ideas into the legal realm Easy going Humble

Excellent Attorney
I was referred to Mr. Blevins by another professional because I was told he was highly experienced in the area I needed. I must say he exceeded all expectations. He was always professional and very patient with answering all of my questions. He was always well prepared and always 2 steps ahead. I highly recommend his services.

Child Custody
I am only 2 months into an extremely complex custody case involving 2 attorneys which has been mayhem mentally. My attorney in Alabama Jerry Blevins has been exceptionally impressive and aggressive! When its his turn to step to the plate hes hitting home runs! Although I have yet to reach the results, I like every course of action he has taken so far. Is my case over? Did I get the results I hoped for? The case is ongoing and the results are still pending however I am so impressed with Blevins actions as an attorney! He is very detailed in his work, easy going down to earth humble but will tell you the truth even though it hurts. He gives the real info you need in order to be prepared for whats next. He is quick to report and follow up in all forms such as email, call backs, and text. He is now working with my 2nd attorney in another state diligently. I have the highest level of confidence these 2 ingenious and quick-whitted men are going to seal the deal. Jerry Blevins is worth not only a pretty penny but "The Man" you want on yours side as a friend! Keep in mind this case is still pending however I am so impressed by him he deserves a kudos so far!!! Your awesome Mr. Blevins!! If you need an attorney you can depend on, and really fight for you as if it were his child - Blevins is for you!!

Glad I called
Mr. Blevins listened, understood and resolved a difficult problem that had haunted me for 3 years. I was amazed at his expansive knowledge of the law and ability to communicate and settle a case with a person who I considered impossible to deal with. I liked his straight forward manner and the fact he made himself readily available for questions by email or phone. I would recommend Jerry Blevins and would hire him again if the need should occur.

5 star representation from a 5 star man
I retained Mr. Blevins for my divorce in which minor children were involved and the other party was making much more difficult than need be. He represented me from start to finish, a total of about 15 months that included multiple court appearances and finally mediation. While the other party was having to jump through hoops with repeated calls and messages to get in touch with his attorney, waiting days for a response, and most times only being able to communicate with a secretary, I always had confidence in Mr. Blevins’ availability when needed. Through everything he never failed to keep me accurately updated on my case and always promptly and personally replied to my communications, answering all questions no matter how complicated or insignificant they were. He is very professional and takes a personal interest in his client’s case and provided confident and accurate advice regarding whatever issues arose. His fees are very reasonable for the personal attention and peace of mind he provides. I am a worrier by nature but he was able to ease my mind regarding all aspects of my case. I am very pleased with the outcome of my divorce settlement and the service he provided for me. I feel extremely blessed to have found Mr. Blevins and highly recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney.

The Best Attorney
Mr. Blevins has represented me in various legal proceedings over the past fourteen years, representing my interests against a variety of opposing attorneys. In each case, without question, Mr. Blevins has been the more prepared, knowledgeable, professional, decent, and, most importantly, effective party. In short, he has always been the smartest person in the room. He has represented my interests with great care, concern, detail, and focus. He provides so much concentration that it makes me feel like I am his only client. This is not the case, of course, but such is his ability and energy, I’m sure, to make each client’s situation feel special, unique, and deserving of his full attention. His client’s interests are as much his own. In court, Mr. Blevins is a pit bull. I pity any nominally-prepared lawyer who shows up in a courtroom opposing him.

Jerry M. Blevins: Houston County Alabama Trial Court
Jerry Michael Blevins represented me before Henry D. “Butch” Binford, Circuit Judge, 20th Judicial Circuit Court of Houston County (Civil Division, Dothan) Alabama, HEARING on MOTION TO VACATE OR MODIFY on Friday, April 20, 2017, at 1:30 PM (38-CV-2015-900261.00) His oral argument before the court cited only the relevant Supreme Court of Alabama cases and the related Alabama Rule in support of my position, and was succinct and to the point I reviewed attorney Blevins' research before the Motion Hearing and was very pleased by his knowledge of the law, and legal research It is my belief that because of lawyer Blevins' only citing case law and the Alabama rule in support, that I will ultimately prevail in the Higher Alabama court of law Having an attorney represent you is a team effort, since the plaintiff should jealously guard their rights, and should work with their lawyer to ensure that they are put in the best position to win your case Mr. Blevins has been responsible and responsive during the entire process of this case
