License reinstatement Illinois – Part 1

Posted by John Callahan | Jul 02, 2015 | 0 Comments

As a license reinstatement lawyer in Illinois I have helped hundreds of people from all over the country reinstate their driver's license after being revoked for driving under the influence of alcohol.  I have three types of clients that I typically help.

First, residents of Illinois who have received two or more DUI arrests resulting in at least one conviction. When this happens, those clients are mandated by the Secretary of State to have what is called a formal administrative hearing to either obtain a restricted driving permit or full reinstatement of their driving privileges.  The process for getting these clients a successful result is to make sure that they have the proper documentation or entry to be allowed into the formal hearing.  Next, I check to make sure that the documentation fits with what the Secretary of State expects from the risk level assessment from those documents.  Then, prepare, prepare, prepare.  My clients find it especially helpful when we proceed to a formal administrative hearing knowing that they are ready and that any questions the Secretary of State will throw at them, they are ready to answer.  This results in a winning formula and gets them driving again.

In my next blog I will be discussing the other two types of clients I typically represent, out of state petitioners and those who live in Illinois but received their first DUI from an out of state DUI conviction.

If you have any questions about getting your license reinstated in Illinois after a DUI, Feel free to call the experienced reinstatement lawyer, John W. Callahan.
