Revoked and Suspended Driver's License Reinstatement

Consequences of License Suspension or Revocation in Michigan

At our Michigan law firm, we have many years of experience helping clients get their driver's licenses restored after a suspension or revocation. Attorneys at Grabel & Associates advise and aggressively defend clients whose licenses were suspended after a DUI or other offense. If your license was revoked or suspended, find out how we can help you.

Don't Take Chances With Your Driving Privileges, We Know What To Do To Get You Back On The Road

Our law firm handles all types of cases involving suspended or revoked licenses, including those arising from circumstances like these:

  • Automatic suspension after a DUI/OWI charge for refusing a chemical test. You have only 14 days to request an implied consent hearing to contest a chemical test refusal.
  • Revocation after a DUI/OWI conviction. You have to wait at least one year before petitioning to have your license restored after it was suspended or revoked.
  • Revocation or suspension after a second DUI or drug-related driving offense. You must wait for at least one year before trying to get your license back.
  • Suspension for five years after a third DUI in ten years.
  • Like-kind suspension after a DWLS conviction.

Everyone Needs A License, But You Also Need An Attorney After Suspension Or Revocation.

These matters are resolved at hearings before the Michigan Secretary of State's Driver Assessment and Appeal Division (DAAD - Formerly known as DLAD). We know how to prepare you for driver's license hearings. Our goal: to present the required information that ensures restoration of your license.

We know what you need to prove at your driver's license hearing. We help you present information about your sobriety by obtaining letters of reference from people who can speak personally about your sobriety. In short, we work to ensure our clients succeed in pursuit of this goal.

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.
