When you lose your driver’s license, you want to do everything possible to get it back. You do not want to wait out the period of time for which it is suspended. You need it back so you can drive yourself to and from places that you need to go.
However, you may have a challenging time convincing a judge to give it back to you if you were to appear in court on your own. You can instead hire a lawyer to appear with you in one of the secretary of state hearings in Chicago.
Convincing the Judge
The judge that oversees your case has the legal obligation of keeping the public safe from harm. He or she must weigh carefully whether or not you have reformed your behavior and can be trusted to get behind the wheel of a car again.
If you were to speak for yourself during the hearing, you may not have the legal finesse or confidence to convince the judge to give back your license. However, when you have a lawyer on retainer, you can hand off the arguments to your legal counsel and have him or her make a solid and convincing argument to the judge. You may get back your license before the end of the revocation period.
