Convincing the Secretary of State

If you have had your driver's license revoked or suspended, you know that convincing the state to return it will not be easy. Illinois is one of the most aggressive states when it comes to keeping >multiple DUI offenders off the road. You need a local Joliet license reinstatement lawyer to guide you through this process.

Preparation for a License Reinstatement Hearing

There are many issues that need to be addressed both prior to a hearing and also during the hearing itself. As you get ready for your hearing, a thorough review of the following is required:

  • A review of your driving record addressing:
  • A review of treatment for alcohol or drug abuse:
    • All available documentation showing that treatment has been completed
    • Out-of-date evaluations (evaluations are only good for six months)
    • New or updated evaluations if a previous evaluation is more than six months old

What to Expect During the Hearing

A hearing officer may require you to provide testimony regarding all DUI offenses. You may need to answer questions about:

  • Details relating to DUI arrests and convictions, as well as any other alcohol or drug-related offenses
  • Past drinking patterns and current alcohol or drug usage (if applicable)
  • Lifestyle changes showing that you are avoiding unsafe activities
  • Information showing that you are unlikely to relapse (if applicable)

Do it Right the First Time

If you have previously had a license statement request denied without being represented by a lawyer, you know that seeking a local Joliet license reinstatement attorney is not a waste of time or money. Many people learn that going it alone can lead to wasted time and money. Hiring a qualified attorney from the beginning of your case will save you in the long run. Do not get denied once or even twice before you reach out to our firm.

Hearing officers will take your case more seriously if you have an experienced attorney by your side. In these situations, the attorney for the state is less likely to treat you unfairly. The hearing itself is extremely important, and any damaging statements you make can set you back months and force you to meet additional requirements. Our office will make sure that you have everything in order when you attend your hearing. We will prepare you to provide your testimony and make sure you are ready for the questions you will be asked.
