Michigan Driver's License Restoration Lawyers

Our Reinstatement Attorneys Have Over a 97% Success Rate at Driver's License Review Hearings...Experience Counts! 

At Grabel & Associates our driver's license attorneys understand that your license is your lifeline and is something that you must have to live a normal life, especially in Michigan where public transportation is very limited in most parts of the state. The ability to get to work, home, place of worship, and family obligations is a necessity most people take for granted until their driver's license has been suspended or revoked for multiple DUI/OWI offenses. Our team of dedicated driver's license restoration lawyers is focused on one goal: getting your driver's license reinstated and getting you back on the road.

Our driver's license reinstatement attorneys will work with you in gathering all the information we need to adequately and efficiently prepare your case for a hearing or administrative review, including getting the most up-to-date driving record and any information that is useful in determining what options are best for your case. Having a lawyer that has successfully appeared before every Secretary of State Hearings Officer in Michigan allows us to tailor our approach to present the most convincing argument on why you deserve your driving privileges. It is this attention to every detail that gives our clients an advantage when appearing before Driver Assessment & Appeal Division (DAAD).

Our Firm's Commitment To Getting Your Driver's License

When it comes to driver's license review hearings, the Michigan Secretary of State will generally only allow one petition each calendar year to reinstate your driving privileges, so you need to be successful the first time around, period. Our firm offers a written guarantee that if we are not successful in winning your driver's license hearing, our firm will represent you free of charge until your driver's privileges are reinstated. It is this commitment to our clients that has earned us a reputation for outstanding proven results.

Requesting A Hearing Or Administrative Review Before Driver Assessment And Appeal Division (Daad)

Once it has been determined that you are eligible for a hearing or administrative review before DAAD (Michigan Driver Assessment & Appeal Division), a skilled lawyer from our firm will go over the specifics of your case, and a packet of information will be sent out to you to get you started on this process so we can schedule your review hearing as soon as possible. Generally it takes approximately six to eight weeks for a hearing date once the request is submitted to Michigan Secretary of State.

The required paperwork must be submitted in order to request a hearing or administrative review before DAAD (Michigan Driver Assessment and Appeal Division). Your attorney will go over all the paperwork with you to make sure all the documentation is filled out completely and correctly. Having successfully done hundreds of driver's license review hearings ensures that we can help you be fully prepared once your hearing date arrives.

Please note: Recently DLAD/DAAD changed their name to the Administrative Hearings Section (AHS). Common use of the name AHS has not yet been widely accepted and the entity responsible for driver’s license hearings is still referred to as DLAD/DAAD in almost all legal areas, which is why we continue to use the term “DLAD/DAAD” throughout our website. More information about this change can be found at the Michigan Secretary of State’s website here.
