Illinois secretary of state drivers license hearings
Chicago, Illinois, Suspended/Revoked License Attorney
For most people, the ability to drive a vehicle is an absolute necessity in order to earn a living and conduct other daily activities. Whether you have been arrested for DUI or charged with a “minor” traffic ticket, your driver’s license may be under threat of suspension or revocation.
At the Law Office of Robert Kerr, our attorneys work to prevent the suspension of clients’ driver’s licenses and to restore those licenses that have already been suspended or revoked. Contact us by calling 312-955-4400, or send us an e-mail to arrange for a free consultation.
Prevent License Suspension and Revocation
The Secretary of State may suspend or revoke your driver’s license, or your ability to obtain a license, for many reasons. Failure to respond in the right way can jeopardize your ability to maintain your driving privileges. As experienced DUI and driver’s license defense lawyers, we understand the procedures of the Illinois Courts and the Secretary of State’s office and what needs to be done to protect and recover your ability to drive. Wherever possible, our overriding goal is to obtain dismissal, reduced charges, or court supervision in lieu of conviction, which protects your status with the Secretary of State and your Insurance company.
If you have been arrested for driving while your license was suspended or revoked, we will determine how and why your license was suspended or revoked, and we will work to restore your driving privileges. A conviction for either of these offenses may result in a criminal conviction, jail time, and/or additional years of suspension and/or permanent revocation.
Reinstate Suspended and Revoked Licenses
If your license has already been suspended or revoked, act now! Reinstatement of a suspended driver’s license can be a complex and involved process in Illinois. The Law Office of Robert Kerr will determine if prior judgments against you may be vacated, or if you are eligible for a Reinstatement Hearing with the Secretary of State.
The Law Office of Robert Kerr represents clients in Administrative Hearings with the Illinois Secretary of State’s office. If your license has been revoked due to a DUI conviction or other reason, you must demonstrate to the Secretary of State that you have successfully completed any alcohol treatment or driver programs required, and answer dozens of questions about your alcohol use and other subjects. We can explain to you the best way to answer these questions and advise you how to comport yourself.
