Avoiding License Suspension

Forty-six days after your DUI arrest, your driver's license will be automatically suspended by the state of Illinois. You can do something to try to avoid the automatic suspension. At Norris & Callahan, we will take immediate action to try to stop your license from being suspended:

  • When you hire us, we will quickly file the proper motions to try to stop the 46-day suspension clock from working against you.
  • By filing these motions, we can start a 30-day clock for the State to schedule a hearing concerning the automatic suspension. If the prosecution does not give you a hearing within those 30 days, they will lose their ability to suspend your license.
  • We will subpoena the video and audio dispatch tapes, as well as any other pertinent evidence, to ensure that all discovery is preserved and protected for your defense.

As you can see, early and aggressive legal action is critical to avoid license suspension and other consequences of a DUI conviction. The attorneys at our firm can explain all of your legal options as they apply to your case.
