Having a driver’s license is something most people take for granted, and its not until you lose it that you realize how important it truly is. Not having a driver’s license becomes a huge burden.

We understand the hardship that comes without having a license, and we’ll do our best to get you back behind the wheel.

Illinois Secretary of State Formal Hearing

A formal hearing is required for individuals who have had there license suspended or revoked due to a driving offense involving a fatality or multiple DUIs. A hearing officer presides over the formal hearing where sworn testimony is taken and documented evidence including treatment and counseling history is reviewed. There are only four locations in Illinois where these hearings take place:

  • Springfield, Illinois
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Joliet, Illinois
  • Mt. Vernon, Illinois

Our formal hearing lawyers will prepare you for the hearing itself, go over your treatment history, and ensure there are no gaps or inconsistencies that could prevent you from getting your license back.

Illinois Informal Hearings

Informal hearings are required for drivers who have lost their driver’s license for driving offenses not involving a fatality or a single DUI. These hearings are done by an informal hearing officer at certain DMV facilities across the State of Illinois. These hearings are done on a walk-in basis.
