    If you go to court without counsel and plead guilty, the Secretary of State will be notified that you got a ticket when you didn't have a drivers license. They will automatically suspend you. Competent counsel can work to avoid this scenario.

    Daughter has an excellent case against possibly both drivers. She wasn't at fault since she wasn't driving, so somebody else caused her injury. Definitely hire a lawyer, as both drivers will blame each other. Let me know if I can help.

    Assuming he had an Illinois drivers license and less than 4 DUI convictions, he needs to go through a formal hearing with the Secretary of State. He should hire a lawyer who has done this before successfully. It's not something he wants to do on his own. He will also probably be given a restricted permit first, which will require a breath alcohol ignition device be installed in the car, and he will have to carry SR22 insurance for at least a year. All in all it's not an inexpensive process,...

    He is going to have to do a formal hearing to try and get reinstatement. He is unlikely to be successful unless he hires a lawyer who has done these before. They don't teach that class in law school. A lot of the answers to the questions the prosecutor will ask him are the opposite if what he might otherwise give. I usually prepare my clients for about 3 to 4 hours over two sessions for the hearings. I heard one prosecutor tell me that over 80 % of people who do the hearings on their own get...

    Absolutely. I have won many on similar issues. They have to be in compliance with the statute when filed. The problem on some of these is that the original that is filed is the controlling document. Sometimes the carbon doesn't go through. However the requirements of the filing are hyper technical and need to be complied with. I have won on missing dates, times, signatures, passage of time before the hearing attributable to the State. I'm in Park Ridge, let me know if I can help.

    Nope, I've tried for clients and it hasn't worked. The best that they will do is a payment plan.
