Driver's License Reinstatement

The driver's license reinstatement attorneys at The Davis Law Group, P.C. are at the forefront of Illinois driver's license law. Whether your license has been revoked, suspended or cancelled by the Illinois Secretary of State, our top-rated attorneys are here to help. Our legal team has helped thousands of clients regain their driving privileges by providing effective and knowledgeable representation.

The Illinois Secretary of State's Office has undergone sweeping changes over the last 30 years, primarily due to the increased enforcement of DUI laws. As a result, there has been a substantial increase in the number as well as length of driver's license revocations and suspensions. Changes in public attitudes toward alcohol / drug related driving offenses have also led to stricter regulations and policies of the Office of the Secretary of State, making it increasingly difficult for the average person to obtain the restoration of driving privileges through an administrative hearing.

A person seeking driving privileges after suspension or revocation must apply for an informal or formal hearing before the Secretary of State (if your driver's license has been suspended or revoked due to excessive moving violations, please click here). Obtaining a favorable decision is not guaranteed by any means, especially without experienced legal representation.

Secretary of State administrative hearings are held under complex and often confusing State laws and administrative rules. However, with our extensive experience and customized approach, you can rest assured that you will receive the very best legal representation, resulting in the best chance for a favorable decision by the Secretary of State.

The founder of our firm, Larry A. Davis, is recognized across the State of Illinois as a leading attorney in the area of driver’s license law and representing drivers at Illinois Secretary of State hearings. Mr. Davis is a former attorney, legal advisor and hearing officer with the Secretary of State. He has authored numerous legal articles on the Office of the Secretary of State for attorneys. He has also written the leading resource guide for lawyers representing clients at hearings before the Secretary of State for the Illinois Institute of Continuing Legal Education.

Mr. Davis has lectured on the representation of driver’s before the Secretary of State and driver’s license law for the Chicago Bar Association, Illinois State Bar Association, Illinois Institute of Continuing Legal Education, Cook County Public Defender's Office, Northwest Suburban Bar Association, DuPage Bar Association and McHenry County Bar Association and the Illinois Traffic Conference. He has also testified before the Traffic Safety Advisory Committee to Secretary of State Jesse White and an advisory committee to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Attorneys Merrill Davis and Brandon Davis have concentrated in the area of driver's license law since the beginning of their legal careers, successfully representing hundreds of drivers before the Illinois Secretary of State. Whether you have lost your driving privileges due to a DUI conviction, a felony involving a motor vehicle, multiple moving violations, or a fake ID, our team is here to help.

I want to extend my sincere gratitude for the success in getting my charges reduced. It has been a rather traumatic experience for me. Though I try to keep an optimistic outlook, it didn't seem possible. But you guys pulled it off and I couldn't be more grateful. This has been a great weight lifted off my shoulders. D.F.
I would like to take this time to thank you for a job well done. I received my full reinstatement documents today for full driving privileges. This took me by surprise. I did not expect to see the results this fast. I just want to say that I am blessed to have a very good lawyer like yourself to guide me through the process... I am very grateful. You're the best. Thanks again. G.B.

I am very grateful for your work and representation. Although it is difficult for me to truly express my gratitude through e-mail, I hope you can still understand how thankful I am that we were able to dismiss my case on the first court date. I am very pleased with the outcome. Again, thank you very much for your time. Please enjoy the rest of your week. D.K.
