5.0 stars 18 totalReview Ted Harvatin
Mr. Harvatin is a TOP-NOTCH attorney without a doubt. My experience with other lawyers was not encouraging, most of them demanded several thousand dollars for resolution of my case, Mr. Harvatin just for $750.00 resolved my case in a mere 5 days and I did not have to even appear in front of the Hearing Officer. This gentleman is prompt, courteous, efficient and most of all very professional. If you are in a traffic related situation please do yourself a favor and hire Mr. Harvatin. He knows what he is doing and I will guarantee you will be more than satisfied!!
Mr. Harvatin is extremely efficient and very gracious with his time. Responses to my questions were immediate and to the point. His assistance was greatly appreciated and his knowledge is impeccable!
I had an absolutely amazing result with Mr. Harvatin. I was charged with a DUI, and as embarrassing as it is to admit, this was not my first. I was referred to Mr. Harvatin by a friend, and set up an appointment to meet with him. He was able to go through the entire process with me and let me know what results to expect. I was pleased with the what he told me the plan was. However, at the date of my trial I was blown away with the fact that he was able to get me an even better deal. I could not have possibly expected such great treatment and outcome from Mr. Harvatin and his office. If you are ever in the unfortunate situation that I was, and facing DUI charges, I cannot suggest a better attorney for representation.

After many disappointing experiences with the Illinois Sec. of State starting back in 1981, I found it to be extremely draining and caused too much unwarranted depression and anguish for me to contend with. I had contacted Harvatin Law Offices 7 years earlier but never followed through until one day, I found the brochure that he'd sent me in a drawer and decided to contact him again. I had e-mailed him complaining about illegal aliens receiving drivers licenses (as if illegals have driving records from their native lands?) and his retort was of sarcastic humor that intrigued me. As I followed through on my situation and completed all the necessary documentation that was to be provided to the Sec. of State's Office, I just "let it roll" and hoped. As the matter was being processed, Ted had given me a sense of confidence that he would finally resolve my license issue(s). Then one day - several months after submitting the required documents, his assistant (Rose Painter) called and informed me that I had received clearance. Mr. Harvatin deserves all the credit for getting me through and past this nightmare. I finally feel like a free man after 34 years, because when you lose your driver's license, you unknowingly become a second class citizen. Thanks again Ted!

I would 100 times recommend this lawyer to anyone with license reinstatement issues. Harvatin is extremely responsive to questions and concerns. He answers his email quickly once you are his client. He will prepare with you before the hearing and give you tips. The most important part however, is he will be the person cross examining you during your hearing. The states lawyer will just ask follow up questions. This greatly reduces the number of questions asked. Overall, by far the best lawyer I have ever hired to help me out with a case.

I attempted to post my 5 star review over a year ago, but for some reason it did not post... The great news is that I still feel the same today!
HE STILL IS THE ONLY ATTORNEY I WOULD RECOMMEND to represent you in your DUI case! He is extremely trustworthy, and knowledgeable, taking your personal situation in the "process".
DON'T SECOND GUESS HE IS THE BEST!!!

If you're looking for an attorney who actually cares about your case...call Mr. Harvatin.
From my initial consultation, until the reinstatement of my drivers license Mr. Harvatin helped me understand the procedure and kept his word. He methodically worked through the legal process & guided me accordingly.
After retaining his counsel, his staff was on top of my case. They called, they emailed, they reached out to me and they followed up. I was provided clear direction and was always aware of the next step. He gives you defined timetables and expectations.
Our case objective was clear from day one. The process worked smoothly. Within months I obtained driving relief. In 15 Months, I obtained a full reinstatement. His pricing is competitive and considering what you get - a bargain. In addition, I found Ted to be easy to speak with. He's down to earth & honest. Overall, my experience with Mr. Harvatin was outstanding. He restored my faith in lawyers and casts a big shadow for other attorneys to follow. Frankly, I don't think most can.
I am grateful, I am humbled, and I highly recommend him.

Illinois had revoked my drivers license for a mistake I made as a teenager & I truly felt it was a waste of time trying to battle the system so I waited 17 long years to give it a try. I contacted Mr. Harvatins Law Firm & asked if he thought trying to get my drivers license back was hopeless & he replied "Far from it" which gave me hope! Ted took my case & once the ball got rolling it took about 4 maybe 5 months for the state of Illinois to grant me full reinstatement of my driving privileges with the very first & only out of state petition packet he submitted. I will never forget Rose Painter ( Mr.Harvatins assistant) calling that day saying that I would be able to go get my license...truly 1 of the best days of my life! Harvatin Law Firm has changed my life & I cant Thank them enough for helping me in this matter. I highly recommend anyone that needs a very knowledgeable lawyer that knows exactly how to get the job done right the first time while trying to get their license back needs to contact Mr. Harvatin & his very helpful, caring assistant Rose. Thank you again Mr. Harvatin!

To put it simply, Mr. Harvatin is the BEST!
Professional and kind. He eased my fears and did everything he could to help me, and that he did.
Anytime I had a questions he was quick to reply.
His knowledge of the system and situation was spectacular.
I forever owe him my grattitude.
If you are looking for an attorney, do not look any further..unless you want to settle for less than the best.

We have been dealing with Illinois DMV for 4 long months jumping through all their hoops and getting nothing but the run around. Mr Harvatin and his staff member Rose had my issue taken care of within a week and I got my drivers license back. They were professional and wonderful to do business with!
