Ann Arbor Lawyer for DAAD/DLAD Hearings

When a person faces driver’s license revocation in Michigan after a DUI or some other criminal conviction, it isn’t easy to regain the ability to drive. In Ann Arbor and statewide, driver’s license reinstatement is handled by the Driver Assessment Appeal Division (DAAD), and anyone who seeks to regain a restricted or full license after a revocation has to win a DAAD hearing. The help of an experienced driver’s license reinstatement attorney can be critically important throughout the DAAD hearings process, as you gather the necessary supporting documents needed to prove your sobriety and convince the hearings judges that you deserve your license back.

Get a DAAD Hearing After Ann Arbor Driver’s License Revocation

The first step you want to take when attempting to appeal a driver’s license revocation is contacting an experienced attorney who can help you comply with the requirements and time limits set out in DAAD cases. You will need to be able to provide documentation that proves your sobriety, which may take some time to gather, and it is critical that you work with an attorney who can help you plan a timeline accordingly. In addition to support letters that confirm you have remained sober for at least a year, you will need to get a substance abuse evaluation performed, show proof that you have attended AA or other sobriety meetings, and perhaps gather other evidence you believe would be helpful to the DAAD hearings officers who will decide your case. When you get a substance abuse evaluation, you can officially begin the hearings process by mailing it along with a DAAD hearing request to the Michigan Department of State Administrative Hearings Section, which handles driver’s license reinstatement appeals.

The most time-consuming portion of your preparation will likely be obtaining letters of support from friends, support group leaders, pastors, family members, and others. Let our Ann Arbor driver’s license reinstatement lawyers guide you through the steps you need to take to fight for your freedom. We are available 24/7 to provide a free initial case consultation and are committed to doing whatever it takes to protect you.

Win an Ann Arbor DAAD Hearing

The DAAD officer will be looking for definitive proof that you have been able to stay sober and that you will likely be able to continue that if you are given your license back. It is critically important that you are able to show you have been totally sober for at least 12 months before your hearing. Our attorneys can work with you to put together the proof necessary to convince the hearings officer you deserve your license back, and will guide you through everything that you need to do to win an Ann Arbor DAAD/DLAD hearing.
