What Do I Need to Do to Appeal a DAAD/DLAD Hearing Decision in Southfield?

What Do I Need to Prove to Win a Southfield DAAD Hearing Appeal to the Circuit Court?

In order to win your Southfield appeal, you will need to prove that the hearing officer violated the constitution or state law, went beyond the authority of the DAAD or SOS, was based on unlawful procedures, was not supported by substantial and competent material evidence, was arbitrary or a clear abuse of discretion, or was affected by a substantial material error of law. If you are able to prove that for one of these reasons, the denial of your reinstatement was unjust, you may be able to win your license back.
