While it is true that a person who has only been found guilty of a DUI outside of Illinois is eligible for an informal hearing, I believe that it is an unfair punishment due to the fact that it is a first offense.  If you're facing a situation where you have been arrested for a DUI in Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, Iowa or any other state while you currently have an Illinois drivers license, feel free to contact my office to discuss what we can do to minimize the amount of time that your license will be revoked in Illinois if you're found guilty of the DUI.  Being prepared is the key to a fast and successful license reinstatement hearing.
