driver's license reinstatement
Driver's License Reinstatement matters can be extremely difficult to navigate following a conviction for DUI or a death-related traffic offense. If you plead guilty to the charge of DUI and are placed on a probation or condtional discharge, the Illinois Secretary of State's office will revoke your driving privileges for a minimum of one-year. However, you may qualify for a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP) during your revocation. If your driving privileges are currently revoked and you your privileges reinstated, call us today for a consultation.
probate & estate planning
Proper estate planning can help you prepare your loved ones for your death. When a person dies, the decedent's assets or property passes to the decedents heirs or legatees through a will or by statute. A will does not help a person avoid probate, but rather informs the Court who the beneficiaries are. Not all estates are handled through probate. For example when a person dies with a small estate, assets such as motor vehicles can be transferred out of the decedent's name with a small estate affidavit. Medium to larger-sized estates that involve the transfer or distribution of real estate and personal property will most likely require that a probate estate be opened in the Circuit Court. Proper estate planning can alleviate problems that arise after your death and ensure that your directives are followed.
