Restoring Your Driving Privileges
If you are like the vast majority of Greater Chicago area motorists, you got your driver's license when you were 16. Driving soon became part of your everyday life, and it was easy to forget that driving is a privilege — not a right. Now, after a DUI/DWI arrest or accumulation of traffic violations, you are facing driver's license suspension. You are now faced with the hardship of not having a license and the urgent need to have your driving privileges restored.
Warren J. Breslin is a former Chicago police officer and a former Cook County prosecutor. He uses his knowledge to help people reinstate their driving privileges. He knows the legal system and will make sure you know your rights and understand every step of getting your driving privileges restored.

Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor DUI or a felony DUI, your driver's license is subject to summary suspension proceedings. Under Illinois state law, you have 90 days from the date of your Notice of Summary Suspension to file a Petition to Rescind your suspension. Your summary suspension will begin on the 46th day following receipt of your notice, unless or until the suspension is rescinded by the court that will be hearing your DUI case as well.
Along with representing you in your DUI case, attorney Warren Breslin will represent you at the summary suspension hearing in the DUI court. Your driving privileges will be immediately restored if your suspension is successfully rescinded. If not, and you have not had a DUI in the past five years, you will be eligible for an unrestricted 24/7 permit upon installation of a breathalyzer in your vehicle for the duration of the suspension past the first 30 days. If not eligible for the unrestricted Monitoring Device Driving Permit (MDDP), you must petition the Illinois Secretary of State for a restricted work, school or medical permit through an administrative hearing. Warren Breslin will assist you in that hearing process.
A DUI revocation following a DUI conviction will always require an administrative hearing.Other Suspensions or Revocations
An administrative hearing is required to regain any driving relief during any suspension period not connected to a DUI. Once the suspension period has ended and the reinstatement fee has been paid, your driver's license will be automatically reinstated.
Revocations never expire automatically. They always require an administrative hearing for any driving relief during the revocation period and after the reinstatement eligibility date to receive full reinstatement.Free Consultations with a Chicago License Reinstatement Lawyer
