My Miracle
Mr. Blevins has helped me reduce my charge of DUI to reckless driving not once, but twice! He is an amazing attorney. Mr. Blevins kept me updated on all aspects of my case and was always available to answer any questions I had. He made going through this case painless. Not only does he get the job done he is a affordable lawyer, well known and favored in the court system. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney to successfully take on my case. You are not just another number or another case when dealing with Mr. Blevins! He truly wants to help. In all the darkness and uncertainty of my case having Mr. Blevins as my attorney was an assured miracle.

Look no more
Mr. Blevins took my case head on from the first phone call with a sense of confidence and knowledge that is unmatched by any lawyer I have ever had experience with in the past! I was convicted of multiple criminal charges in a crowded area which was a major case of mistaken identity to make a long story short. Due to his extensive background with investigative work, the Georgia legal system, and presence in the courtroom, my charges were dropped completely from my record. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Blevins for your legal needs!

Great lawyer; Outstanding Law Firm & 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!

AWESOME lawyer
Richard was AWESOME! My son was arrested (twice) for underage alcohol possession. Richard was able to get him in the diversion program after the first arrest, which was key when he was arrested for the 2nd time. If we had not hired him the first time, he would have faced jail time the 2nd. I can't say enough good things about Richard and how he handled our cases. Though I hope to NOT have to hire him again, if I do need to, I know he will be there and get us the best deal possible!

great lawyer!!
we needed to hire Mr. Blevins for our son who was caught with under age drinking. Mr. Blevins, was upfront and very informative from the very first phone call to us. He was specific and very knowledgeable. What was very impressive was no matter what time you call him he calls you back that day! It is very stressful knowing he is making and handling your case with the prosecutor and judge you want the information immediately,, well he returns phone calls and lets you know in detail what is going on with your case. we would highly recommend him.

Awesome Criminal defense lawyer!!!
Richard did a GREAT job representing my domestic violence battery case recently. Because of his advise I received the necessary counselling and was not prosecuted as a result. He was very easy to contact and very honest with me during the entire process. I can finally move on with my life. Thank you Richard!!

Professional & Effective
Due to a scrivener's error on two separate occasions, arresting officers submitted my name and driver's license number to state court for two DUIs committed by another guy having the same first and last name and DOB. As a result, a local state court revoked my driving privileges. I hired Richard due to his background as a former LEO and as a former assistant DA. He filed corrective orders through the court which cleared my name and restored my driving privileges. Richard communicated throughout the case providing frequent updates. His office staff were very helpful, and his fees were very reasonable compared to other attorneys contacted. I found that Richard demonstrates a very high level of integrity in his work, and I would recommend him and his firm to anyone seeking professional counsel.

Top notch defense attorney
Mr. Blevins has provided representation for 3 cases in my (juvenile and adult). I interviewed about 10 attorneys prior to choosing Mr. Blevins and I definitely made the right choice. He is an experienced attorney who strives for the best possible outcome for his clients. He clearly explains his strategy and the full range of possible outcomes for each case. I have been impressed by his professionalism, respect for his clients, and responsiveness to questions. Whenever I emailed questions or requested a phone conference he replied promptly. Mr. Blevins is an excellent communicator when speaking to court personnel and is highly regarded as an attorney. I will recommend him to friends and family in search of top-notch representation at a very reasonable price.

Best Scenerio
Richard was very knowledgeable about the charges and possible outcomes. He worked very hard with the DA to obtain the most favorable and fair sentence possible. I believe his experience as a former DA helps him in the negotiations on our behalf. I am very pleased with his willingness and promptness in answering all my questions.

Review of a good attorney
Richard, is a very professional lawyer. From the minute I contacted him he was very responsive. He answered all my questions, even if I emailed him on a weekend, I got a response that day. Richard is very familiar with his area of expertise and gave very specific instructions on the process and what to expect. He provided me with all the tools and things I would need to do prior to appearing in court so I would have the best possible outcome. I did everything he had advised a year prior to every appearing in court, making it less stressful when I actually was ordered to do so. I also find him to be a very compassionate lawyer and you feel he is on your side. I would recommend him in the future to anyone who needed his service.

Thank you!
Extremely pleased with the representation my 17 year old son received for a traffic ticket received (first accident). It is stressful enough dealing with insurance companies, repairs, etc. Richard took the stress of the legal system away. Highly recommend consulting with him.

Very satisfied
I am out of state and he handled everything for me. Was able to plead down to the minimums. He did an outstanding job.

Review for Richard Blevins Jr.
I feel very lucky that Richard Blevins was recommended to me. I could not have asked for a more professional attorney and the outcome of my case was perfect (he got the case dismissed). Richard was very prompt with returning my phone calls, texts, and emails. I don’t think I could have been in better hands. I am truly very grateful for having Richard on my side. I highly recommend Richard and his services and I am sincerely appreciative for the help he gave me.

Thank you Mr. Blevins!
Mr Blevins is a phenomonal attorney. His knowledge, professionalism, and confidence immediately put me at ease and I knew I was in good hands. In court, he was able to negotiate a lesser plea for me and made my case go away in a favorable manner. Anyone needing legal respresentation should seek Mr. Blevins out with a vengeance. It will serve you well.

Richard Blevins got my DUI reduced!
Mr. Blevins assisted me in getting my DUI charge in Kennesaw reduced to a lesser charge. Her was very informative and knowledgable about the law. I highly recommend him!
Posted by Kevin Houck | June 27, 2014
Very highly recommended!
I highly recommend Rich as your personal attorney. I had a minor traffic violation and he helped me get it reduced so that it did not show up on my driving record, thereby saving me hundreds of dollars on my insurance premiums. For all of your personal law needs, Rich is your man!

Traffic Ticket
Attorney Blevins was very responsive when we needed assistance with a speeding ticket that our son received in Alabama that caused him to loose his license in the State of Georgia. He guided us through the proper steps for both states and followed up until resolution. We would highly recommend Attorney Blevins.

True Trial Lawyer
Mr. Blevins took my case and from the moment he heard the facts he got right to work and was not backing down until justice was done and I was satisfied. I was charge with aggravated assault alone with with child cruelty due to a bitter divorce the charges was all lies and Mr. Blevins believed in me and was fighting the prosecutor the whole way. in the end all charges was drop and my record is back clean for life. Thank you so much Mr. Blevins ...TB
