Mr. Vig was able to get me in and out of a formal hearing with full reinstatement. Even after a scheduling issue, he kept me in the loop all the way up to the hearing. Great job and very professional.
I was nervous on what lawyer to choose, as I'm an out of state resident and want to keep record clean. I missed my first court date due to a knee injury and received a letter in mail two days before the rescheduled court date did not leave me with much notice. I called four different layers and felt most comfortable with William Vig. He took his time and was patient with all of my concerns and needs. His pricing was the most competitive as a plus. Even if it was not just after our phone consultation he earned my trust and he was my final decision. Highly recommend using him. A++++++++++
We hired Bill based on reviews from internet sites and were glad we did. We are located outside of Chicago and had to travel to Springfield for our court date. With Bill being local to Springfield, we decided to use him. We were very happy we did. He kept us very informed of the entire process and the consequences our son faced. All of our communication was done via email until the actual court date and he didn't spare anything explaining how everything would go and what to expect. He actually helped get supervision for a charge that could have affected our son's driving record for a very log time.
I WOULD RECOMMEND BILL TO ANYONE NEEDING COUNSEL IN THE SPRINGFIELD AREA EVEN IF YOU LIVE FAR AWAY. HE WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN AND KEEP YOU INFORMED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE THING.
When my teenage son was ticketed for speeding he faced losing his license and/or jail time, plus a conviction on his record, according to the Illinois law at the time. I needed to find a lawyer a few hours from our home so I called few I found on Avvo. The first lawyer I talked with at another firm was not very helpful or hopeful. When I called Bill Vig, it was an entirely different experience. He knew exactly what needed to be done. Before he even talked with me about legal fees or taking on our case, he talked with the prosecutor involved to see if they could come to an agreement. He got back to me with a specific plan and everything went as expected in my son’s favor. I highly recommend Bill Vig.
I can't imagine going through this complicated and difficult process without the guidance of a knowledgeable and trustworthy attorney like Bill. As a former DUI prosecutor, he set my expectations appropriately and led me through the intimidating and complicated process. Once I made it through the court system, I hired Bill again to tackle my license reinstatement. Bill told me exactly what the Secretary of State hearings would entail, and the best way I could prove that I am committed to my sobriety. It is often said that the SOS never approves a reinstatement at the first formal hearing, but with Bill's guidance and detailed instruction, I did just that. What I liked most about having Bill represent me is that he never judged me, and he encouraged me to continue with my recovery program. He demonstrated integrity and a genuine concern for his client.
Mr. Vig is a no fluff, straight to the point kind of guy and that's exactly what I needed. He is extremely knowledgeable and reliable. He made the difficult process so much easier!
TL;DR: This guy's the real deal. Would hire again. A+
This time when I got two tickets unexpectedly, I took time searching for representation. Last time I needed representation, I chose the first person I found rather than selecting carefully and wound up with tired, complacent, disinterested representation. That case didn't go well. This time, I interviewed a number of attorneys and chose Mr. Vig to represent me. Glad I did.
Mr. Vig takes an active interest with his clients and their cases. His thoroughness and attention to detail are refreshing. He is a professional, personable gentleman. Questions were answered thoughtfully and directly, never dismissively. When I called, calls were returned. I was never given the run-around. (Also, the office staff at Ackerman Law were friendly and helpful.) Bill communicated very well both the good and the bad of the case and properly tempered / put into context what mattered and how the pieces fit, their implications, etc.
In the end, with his help, my two tickets were dismissed. I will be looking to hire Mr. Vig again should I wind up requiring his services again. I would highly recommend Mr. Vig to family and friends alike.
Attorney Vig is a good listener, he answered all my telephone calls, and successfully argued for the the dismissal of a petition for an order of protection (OP) against my son; the judge vacated and dismissed the petition. I think Attorney Vig is very professional and trustworthy and I strongly recommend him.
who knew making a pit stop to a random post office on my road trip would have turned into such a nightmare. was pulled over & there was a huge mix up on whether i paid a ticket or needed to appear in court. dont ask me how they returned my money order to the right address, but failed to mail my 2 different court dates to the right address. it happened and they issued me a warrant. Panicked, I reached out to Bill & he helped me without me even having to travel anywhere. this especially came in handy, because i recently moved & live 9 hours away from springfield. so happy with how easy he made my nightmare disappear.

Bill Vig was very professional from the beginning. He asked us to bring accident summary from Secretary of State office so we went right to work when we met him. The office was first class and we met in the big meeting room.
I was amazed when I received the email from Bill the same day and the supervision had been taken care off and the email summarized the future steps - where to pay the fine and how and when the SOS will be sending the drivers license and where to take the traffic class.
Money well spent. Very satisfied.
