If you have relapsed in the past, the examiner at your Michigan DAAD/DLAD hearing may consider you a poor candidate for driver's license reinstatement. You can overcome any relapse issues with advice from an experienced attorney. At the law office of Grabel & Associates, our lawyers have been able to help many clients with histories of relapse win reinstatement of their Michigan driver's licenses.
At your DAAD/DLAD hearing, you will need to demonstrate that your alcohol problem is now controlled and that you are unlikely to be charged with a DUI in the future. If you have relapsed in the past, your hearing examiner's biggest concern will be that you will relapse again and be charged with another DUI. Because your license was originally suspended because of multiple drunk driving convictions, the examiner will assume that you are an alcoholic and likely to be unable to control your drinking. Our team of dedicated lawyers are experienced in demonstrating that relapse is part of the recovery process, and you are a strong candidate for license reinstatement.
Fortunately, our lawyers have a strategy for proving that you are a low risk and unlikely to relapse in the future. The first step is to prepare you for your DAAD/DLAD hearing. We undertake to do the following for clients whose past history of relapse may make recovering their licenses more difficult:
You don't need to be in AA to win reinstatement of your driver's license following a relapse. However, you do need to be prepared to assure your hearing examiner that you are at low risk of another relapse.
Don't give up on your driver's license appeal if you have relapsed in the past. Contact our law firm to guide you at your next DAAD/DLAD hearing. With attorneys across the state, our lawyers represent clients at DAAD/DLAD hearings throughout Michigan.
