You drive to work, drop off the kids at school, visit family…
But without a driver’s license, all of those things become incredibly complicated. You have to coordinate rides, find public transportation, or miss out on opportunities to do the things you normally do—and nobody wants to be forced to do any of that.
Unfortunately, many people in Chicago, Skokie, Rolling Meadows and Schaumburg have suspended or revoked driver’s licenses, and often, those types of cases become worse (not better) the longer people put off handling them.
If you’ve lost your license for any reason and have been caught driving without one, it’s a good idea to get in touch with a criminal defense lawyer who understands how vital your driving privileges are—and who can help you deal with the misdemeanor charges or felony charges that you may be facing.
