Secretary of State Hearings After DUI in Chicago

Experienced Chicago DUI Defense Attorney

When you are convicted of driving under the influence, the Secretary of State will suspend or revoke your driver's license. In order to have it reinstated, you must attend an administrative hearing. This can be either a formal or an informal hearing.

An informal hearing can be held if you have been convicted of a first time DUI. The hearing could result in a restricted driver's license or a full reinstatement of your driving privileges. No matter the number of DUI convictions you have on your record, it is in your best interest to hire a Chicago DUI lawyer who has successfully represented others in similar administrative hearings and is skilled in defending against a DUI charge.

Call The Toney Law Firm, LLC at (888) 473-4058 or contact us online now.

What Happens During the Hearing?

If you have multiple DUI convictions or have committed reckless homicide, you will be questioned during a formal hearing. You will be asked many questions concerning the arrest itself, about any alcohol abuse or dependency issues, and what changes you have made in your life since the arrest.

If you receive an unfavorable decision after the Secretary of State hearing, you may appeal that decision. Your driver’s license can only be reinstated after going through the hearing or appeals process.

Protecting Your Ability to Drive

In our day-to-day lives it has become vital to possess a driver's license. We rely on the ability to drive to get to and from work, transport our children, and take care of other daily matters. The necessity of a restoration of driving privileges makes it that much more important for you to consult with a knowledgeable attorney. An experienced Chicago DUI defense lawyer at The Toney Law Firm, LLC will prepare you for your hearing, whether formal or informal, and this can help increase your chances of a positive outcome.

Our firm understands that you may be enduring a hardship by not being able to drive and will provide the dedicated legal assistance to fight for your license. With experience and a firm understanding of all the state’s DUI laws, the result of your Secretary of State hearing will seek to get your driver's license back.

Contact a Chicago DUI attorney in order to fully prepare you for success at your hearing. Call The Toney Law Firm, LLC at (888) 473-4058.
