John Callahan has been helping people obtain their licenses in Illinois for more than a decade. As a license reinstatement attorney in Illinois, I find that I get much satisfaction when I represent clients from start to finish with the Secretary of State. What does that mean? It means when the client retains me from the start. Typically, this happens after the client is convicted of a DUI charge. If the DUIs were in Illinois, this happens after the second DUI in 99% of the cases. If the driving under the influence charge happened outside the State of Illinois, the Illinois license is revoked even after the first DUI.
Once a person is revoked in Illinois and they want to reinstate their license they give me a call. What do I do? I obtain all of their background information including the dates and facts surrounding the DUI arrests. Next I make sure that the Risk level from the alcohol evaluation and treatment is appropriate for the number of DUI arrests. Finally, I prepare an eighteen page worksheet to analyze the persons facts and evaluation with what will typically work with the Secretary of State.
This process has been extremely successful at obtaining the license reinstatement of my clients.
