Illinois Secretary of State Hearings Representation
Helping Clients Facing License Suspension in the Joliet Area
Under Illinois’ statutory summary suspension law, your license will be suspended by the Secretary of State if you were stopped for DUI/DWI and failed or refused to take a breath test. The loss of your license can have a serious impact on your daily life and could interfere with your ability to fulfill responsibilities regarding work and family.
If you are facing the possibility of losing your right to drive, talk to a Joliet lawyer who knows the law and will help you understand your rights. At the Mitchell Legal Solutions, we represent clients facing license suspension for DUI/DWI and a variety of other causes, including driving without insurance, excessive traffic violations and many others.
Working to Retain Your Driving Privileges
Every person facing license suspension has the right to request a Secretary of State hearing. There hearings give you an opportunity to have plead your case for the reinstatement of your license. There is a limited amount of time for you to request a hearing and, if you miss the deadline, your opportunity is lost and you will have no choice but to serve the suspension.
Our attorneys have represented clients in countless Secretary of State hearings. We know what the hearing officer looks for and we know how to make a compelling argument on your behalf. If the suspension is upheld, we will work to secure a hardship permit that allows you to drive to work, school or medical appointments. If your case involved a DUI/DWI, we will also seek to avoid the installation of a breath alcohol ignition interlock device (BAIID).
