Kalamazoo DAAD/DLAD Hearing Lawyer

If your driver’s license has been revoked, the only way you will be able to get it back will be to win a hearing with the driver assessment appeal division of the Secretary of State, also referred to as the DAAD or the DLAD (driver’s license appeal division). Technically, the DAAD is now referred to as the AHS (Administrative Hearing Section), but this is not yet widely enough used. If you go into a DAAD hearing unprepared, you will lose, and will need to wait a whole year at minimum just to reapply for a new hearing. That is why it is so important to work with a lawyer to gather the evidence you need to prove you deserve your license back, and our attorneys are available 24/7 to begin guiding you through what you can do to prepare to win a DAAD hearing in Kalamazoo. Our attorneys are available 24/7 to start fighting for you, and can be reached toll free right now at 1-800-342-7896. Don’t wait to begin working with our Kalamazoo DL lawyers and fighting to win back your revoked license through a DAAD hearing.

What Do I Need to Prove to Win a DAAD/DLAD Hearing?

Really, what the DAAD is looking for is quite simple – they want to know that you are sober and that you will stay sober if you get your license back. How to prove that exactly is where things get more complicated.

The DAAD/DLAD has very specific regulations concerning what you need to present in order for them to deem your proof of sobriety to be sufficient. Ultimately, they want to know that your alcohol abuse is under control and that it will remain under control in the future, that you are motivated to follow state driving laws, and that you have little to no risk of a relapse in the future. Work with our attorneys and let us help you as you contend with tough deadlines and work to gather very specific evidence that supports your bid to get your license reinstated. Our lawyers know what it takes to get you your license back, and have been getting clients the results they want in revoked license cases for over 15 years. Call or contact us online now to get started.

Evidence Needed to Win a Driver’s License Restoration Hearing

In order to win your hearing, you will need to schedule (and prepare for) a substance abuse evaluation, obtain letters of reference supporting your sobriety, get documentation about treatment and history of relapse, prepare witnesses, get a 12-panel drug screening, prepare for the questions the DAAD/DLAD will ask, and submit any other relevant evidence in time for your license reinstatement hearing.

Our lawyers know what you need to put together to prove you deserve to get your license back, and will make sure you have everything you need to win your hearing in time so that you don’t have to worry about waiting for a second opportunity.
