There are many reasons why you might need assistance to reinstate your license, including past DUI offenses, committing multiple traffic violations or failing to carry a valid auto insurance policy. If you need help obtaining your license after it has been suspended or revoked by the state of Illinois, attorney John R. Kopp can help get your driving privileges back.
Criminal Record Expungement
By filing certain petitions with the court, you can seek to have qualifying offenses expunged, or cleared, from your record. Mr. Kopp can consult with you to determine if your record is eligible for expungement or sealing and file petitions with the court so you can clear your criminal history.
Court Supervision, Conditional Discharge And Probation Violations
If you have pled guilty or have been found guilty of a crime, you may have been sentenced to a period of court supervision, conditional discharge or probation. Typically, those sentences include conditions such as alcohol or drug treatment, community service, restitution or fines. Failure to comply with these conditions or being arrested on a new charge may result in a violation of your sentence. You are subject to additional punishment if the court finds you violated your original sentence. Mr. Kopp can defend you against these violations so that you may keep the terms of your original sentence.
