Case Result Date: July 6, 2021
Practice Area: Suspended Driver’s License
Outcome: Charges Reduced
In Illinois, there are numerous reasons why a person’s driving privileges may be suspended or revoked.
It could be something as simple as too many unpaid parking tickets or toll violations or something as complicated as a DUI conviction or a conviction for a felony involving a motor vehicle. At the law firm of Meyerson Law, LTD. our attorneys are experienced at negotiating with the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office as well as conducting formal and informal administrative hearings before said office.
The attorneys at Meyerson Law, LTD. regularly consult with and represent individuals whose driving privileges have been suspended or revoked. Before consulting with a prospective client, we always suggest that they obtain a copy of their Court Purposes Driving Abstract from the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office. This is because we often find that there are more problems with a prospective client’s driving privileges than they were aware of. The Abstract is like an MRI of a client’s driving privileges and it constitutes their driving record. We also request that a prospective client forward to us any and all correspondence he or she may have received from the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office.
We routinely consult with clients whose driving privileges have been revoked due to an in-state DUI conviction (which is usually a second or greater DUI offense) or an out-of-state DUI disposition which the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office classifies as a conviction even though it might be a first offense. We first evaluate whether a client is ready to apply for driving relief, be it a Restricted Driving Permit or full driver’s license reinstatement. If necessary, we recommend them to one of several qualified drug and alcohol evaluators to obtain necessary documentation. We review all documentation and prepare our clients in relation to their testimony before the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office. The proverbial “devil is in the details” certainly holds true in the area of driver’s license reinstatement. The attorneys at Meyerson Law, LTD. have conducted dozens of informal and formal hearings before the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office and have achieved impressive results for their clients.
