Illinois license reinstatement preventing out of state revocation

Posted by John Callahan | May 03, 2015 | 0 Comments

In Illinois license reinstatement it is very important to understand the nuances of the revocation process. After handling license reinstatement hearings and DUI criminal cases for 18 years, I have always felt that first time DUI offenders who were arrested outside of Illinois but had an Illinois license have been punished much too harshly by the Illinois Secretary of State.
 Recently, I was able to obtain a favorable disposition from someone who had an out-of-state DUI that the Illinois Secretary of State would normally have revoked their driving privileges. After speaking with the Secretary of State in Springfield, I was able to convince them that this disposition resulting from an out-of-state driving under the influence of alcohol charge should not result in an Illinois license revocation.
 This is not the common result. 99.9% of the people that I come across who have had a DUI charge in another state outside of Illinois but who have an Illinois drivers license wind up losing their driving privileges when Illinois revokes your license for the out-of-state DUI conviction.
 If you have been charged with a DUI in another state while you have an Illinois drivers license and are concerned as to whether or not you will be revoked and might night an administrative hearing, you should contact Illinois license reinstatement lawyer John W Callahan who may be able to coordinate a result with your attorney in the other state that might prevent you from ever getting revoked in Illinois in the first place.
