A: I think you just did, though it's unfortunate that someone did this to you and now YOU have to pay for it. Do you have any idea who stole your identity? I assume you reported it to the police. The case would have to be set for a Motion to Quash Warrant on a video remote calendar.

The State Attorney's Office would be able to assist on the identity issue, but since Covid-19 closings they are not very accessible.

A: Your inquiry is not clear whether your license was suspended due to your own identity theft or due to someone else using your identity. In either event you need to find an attorney. You could obtain friend recommendations, search online, go to Justia or any number of places. Generally, the sooner you get good legal advice, the better. The lawyer may guide you through the trial warrant which is pending.
