At the Law Offices of Johnson & Buh, we know that the loss of your driver's license impacts every aspect of your life. Without a license, it can be difficult to get to and from work, pick up groceries and go about your daily business. The driver's license reinstatement process after suspension or revocation is demanding and fraught with uncertainty. Missteps along the way can make regaining your privilege to drive more difficult down the road.

Do Not Take Chances With A Revoked License

Our lawyers do the hard work that is necessary to help driver's get back on the road legally and as soon as possible. A revoked driver's license is not automatically reinstated at the conclusion of the revocation period. You need to take affirmative action to request a reinstatement hearing before the secretary of state's office. We help clients understand the complex rules and prepare for the reinstatement hearing. We will guide you step by step to put you at ease that there can be a brighter future.

We draw on more than 20 years of experience to provide aggressive advocacy in a wide range of driver's license reinstatement issues, including:

  • Statutory summary suspension hearings
  • Representing commercial drivers to protect their CDLs
  • Administrative hearings before the Illinois secretary of state to reinstate a revoked license
  • Advising and representing clients to obtain a restricted or "hardship" license

The secretary of state's office denies a large number of license reinstatement petitions. Often after a person appears without representation and the administrative law judge finds the person is minimizing his or her alcohol use. Far too many people take the issue lightly. It is critical for you to have a strong advocate in your corner to protect your rights. We know the questions that you will be asked in your hearing, and we can help you prepare. We will work hard to strengthen your position to obtain the best outcome possible.
