A few years ago I got myself in no small amount of trouble with DUIs and driving while suspended. I realize time has little to no effect on whether or not I am eligible for a reinstatement however due to health reasons I have had to genuinely change my lifestyle and no longer drink/use at all. For those same reasons it is necessary for me to visit several doctors, all of whom are VA and quite some distance from me. It has become necessary for me to be self sufficiently mobile and need some advice and/or counsel. Thank you. Laramie L. Bahr - 618 556 0666 - [email protected]
You should use the "find a lawyer"' tab on this site to find an attorney who can review your driving history, discuss your alcohol and/or drug use history, give you advise and represent you before the Illinois Secretary of State.
You only mentioned a small amount of trouble with DUIs and not your exact driving history. Since I am not sure where you stand as to your driving privileges I suggest you go to a Secretary of State facility and talk to a Hearing Officer. The Hearing Officer can pull your court purposes driving record and tell you what steps you need to take to clear up your driving record. You then can make a decision as to whether you need a Reinstatement Attorney. If the Hearing Office says you need a Formal Hearing get an attorney.
