As an Illinois license reinstatement lawyer, I have represented hundreds of clients you needed help clearing their Illinois license with the Secretary of State after losing their license due to a DUI conviction. Many of these clients have never had you driving on the influence charge in their lives until they were pulled over while either working in Wisconsin or while they were enjoying a long weekend there. The problem with picking up a DUI charge in Wisconsin is that even though this is your first arrest for a DUI, if you are found guilty of driving under the influence charge or even a reduced charge down to what Wisconsin considers a DUI refusal case, That will still revoke your license in Illinois once the Secretary of State finds out about it.
So what should you do if you have been arrested for a driving under the influence of alcohol charge in Wisconsin? You need to prepare yourself for the possibility that your Illinois license will be revoked for one year. What an experienced license reinstatement lawyer can do for you is to prepare you for an immediate hearing once your license is revoked so that you can then obtain a restricted driving permit so that your license is not revoked for the full year. It is important to begin the reinstatement process in Illinois BEFORE you are convicted of the DUI in Wisconsin. This enables you to minimize the damage to your license in Illinois.
If you have an Illinois license and have recently been arrested for a DUI charge in Wisconsin and you want help with the reinstatement process, you should contact the license reinstatement law firm of John W Callahan to help you with you Secretary of State hearing.
