    You should hire an attorney to assist you with this case. I and many other attorneys will offer you a free consultation. I do recommend you head over to my website www.ZippToCourt.com and under the Zipp to Research tab which you can access here http://zipptocourt.com/Zipp_To_Legal_Research.html you will find a very informative PDF from the Illinois Secretary of State Parent Teen graduated licensing program.

    The other attorneys have given you excellent advice. This might make you feel better though - is your court appearance in Waukegan or at one of the Branch Court's such as Round Lake Beach, Mundelein, or Park City? You may notice there is not a jail attached to branch court. While I have seen some folks go to jail from branch court (usually for being a moron in front of a Judge or for having outstanding warrants), if you have branch court, you are most likely looking at fines and costs. I...

    I am afraid your friend is mistaken. There may be several other countries that have signed on to some sort of international certificate, but in the United States, each state sets its own bar license requirements. Some states, such as my state of Illinois have reciprocity agreements under certain circumstances but each individual who wishes to practice in the United States must obtain the permission from that Court which usually translates to being licensed by that State's Supreme Court or...

    They answered your question when they said "for liability reasons." Having insurance is required in the State of Illinois and if your job will involve driving for the company or on company time, keeping a copy of your proof of insurance on file is a reasonable request. I would not read more into their request based on what you have relayed.

    I routinely practice at the Round Lake Beach branch court where your case will be heard. I would be happy to give you a free consult. Please feel free to email me a scan of your ticket or fax it to me at 847-201-2574. The case is not likely to be dismissed without the assistance of an attorney. This will not break the bank, but you really do need an attorney to help you on this.

    If you have no other tickets in the past 12 months, you would be eligible for court supervision. Your additional comments speak toward "getting your license back." I presume you are meaning that the police officer took your license as a bond so your would come to court. I bet the loss of the physical license is far more upsetting than the actual ticket. First, I would consider contacting an experienced traffic attorney such as myself to help you with the court date as your pleading...

    First, you need an attorney to help you with the DUI. Second, the previous answer was fantastic advice. Third, BAIID eligibility is dependent on several factors you have no presented. Follow the first piece of advice I just gave and you will be much happier. Good luck.

    I would highly suggest you contact an attorney regarding this matter. Many, like myself will offer you a free consultation. It is not clear from your post if you are being accused of obtaining unemployment benefits fraudulently by the State of the former employer. There is a set forth process in dealing with the State which you will be aware of through the copious amont of information you would be recieveing if this is the case. If the old employer or a private individual is making...

  9. Conviction of a dui in 2006, driving on suspended 4 times, and driving on revoked in an accident in 2010 how can I get license?

    The driving on suspended is an issue, but the driving on a revoked is a game over as far as just walking into the Secretary of State's office and getting a valid license issued by the State of Illinois. You most likely will need a hearing on a petition for reinstatement. On my website www.ZippToCourt.com I have a page dedicated to DUI and under my Zipp to Research tab, you can find the Illinois SOS Guide to Reinstatement. Here is a direct link to that PDF: http://zipptocourt.com/uploads/...

    While not ordinarily their purview, you may try Prairie State Legal Services which does offer some free legal assistance, but usually for the victims in domestic situations. Their website is: http://www.pslegal.org/ Good luck.
