License reinstatement – hardship issues for lawyers

Posted by John Callahan | Jul 08, 2015 | 0 Comments

I am posting this to let the attorneys who are out there who handle license reinstatement matters in Illinois as well as anyone who is trying to obtain their license in Illinois after being revoked for a DUI by themselves that the Secretary of State seems to be concentrating more and more on what it takes to establish hardship for a restricted driving permit. 
 I have represented hundreds of clients at formal administrative hearings after they have been revoked by the state of Illinois for driving under the influence of alcohol charges and I've had hundreds of successful outcomes. Recently, I have had two clients Who performed very well at their Secretary of State hearings and we're basically granted a restricted driving permit by the Secretary of State but for the fact that they did not establish a hardship necessary to obtain driving relief. The sheer fact that these people had a family member or parent occasionally drive them to their work was enough for the Secretary of State to deny them the privilege to drive. Absolutely ridiculous.
 It now appears to me that it will be difficult to have any client testify that their parent or family member ever helps them get to work. 
 If you are looking to obtain driving privileges in the state of Illinois after being revoked for driving under the influence of alcohol charge, feel free to contact license reinstatement lawyer John W Callahan to discuss your case.
