From the first time I spoke to the staff over the phone they were incredibly responsive and quick to answer questions and return my phone calls. All the preliminary paperwork was completed within the first week. They are experts in their area and it shows. When visiting the office the entire staff was knowledgeable and helpful. All staff members respond quickly to all correspondence whether it is phone calls or emails through out the entire process. Mr. Harvatin went above and beyond to resolve issues that arose that were not initially anticipated so that I received my license reinstatement in a timely manner.

Mr. Harvatin did an excellent job getting my son's charges dropped by the State Attorney office...arrested for DUI and scared but was not drunk...blew 0.0. Sometimes you just need the right lawyer on your side. Mr Harvatin did an excellent job and well worth it.

I received a speeding Ticket that could have resulted in a Misdemeanor charge. I hired Ted because he received great reviews. I can confirm that the reviews are correct. Ted and his staff were very responsive and I obtained a favorable result. I would recommend Ted Harvatin for any Traffic matter.

Ted helped me with an out of state clearence
His method's at first may seem a little unorthodox but if you do exactly what he tell's you- then you will have suscess with reinstating your driving privileges. I had 3 dui's and many many driving wile licence revoked citations.
There is no better lawyer in the state Illin ois for dealing with this kind of case.

Mr. Harvatin is thouroughly extensive in his knowledge especially reinstatment matters. His credentials and background proove it. He takes time to answer many questions and help many people. If you have any desire to reinstate your driving privledges and feel like you are worried about investing money in an attorney that you will barely ever communicate with do not be afraid of Mr Harvatin. His staff is kind wise and helpful and always willing to get back to you about matters. Its pretty straight forward-do what he tells you to do and good results will happen. I have just hired him and its for a pretty interesting reinstatment matter so that I can clear my Illinois hold. We will see what happens but in my heart I believe that if I do everything that Im directed to do i will be granted relief that I thought would never come.

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!!

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!
