How Do Michigan Attorneys Measure "Success Rate" In Driver’s License Reinstatment Appeals?

For the last 20+ years, Attorney Daniel T. Geherin, owner of, has dedicated his career to helping put drivers back on the road following a license suspension or revocation.  Without debate, he is recognized as a license appeals specialist in Ann Arbor and throughout Michigan.  Unfortunately, it’s hard to find many other specialized driver’s license appeals/reinstatement attorneys in Michigan.  Some attorneys “dabble” in these hearings, but don’t have a lengthy track record of success in them.  Some attorneys haven’t conducted a hearing in years but call themselves a “specialist.”  And still others handle quite a few hearings, but don’t put in the necessary and ongoing training/education necessary to keep current on the license appeal changes. 

One of the best ways to gauge whether an attorney is an authentic, dedicated and passionate license appeals attorney is to ask him/her about their success rate in handling license reinstatement appeals.  These are the hearings that are held before a Secretary of State Hearing Officer at the Administrative Hearings Section following a driver’s revocation of privileges.  These hearings are complicated and are often difficult to win.   And, a dedicated license attorney should ideally have a long and verifiable track record of success in winning these hearings.

Daniel T. Geherin has close to a 98% success rate in winning license appeals over the past two decades.  In the last 10 years alone, he has helped put hundreds of clients back on the road lawfully and legally.  And, to prove that these results are legitimate, he even posts the case numbers of successful appeals on his website ( so that potential clients can see his extensive success.  He has taught other attorneys about driver’s license appeals in numerous seminars, and has written a book, Michigan Drunk Driving and Driver’s License Restoration Handbook, on how to protect and restore a license following a drunk driving arrest in Michigan.   

Clients should ask potential clients these questions when looking for a license appeals attorney:

“What is your success rate in these hearings over the last 5 years?  10 years?  20 years?”

“How many hearings on average do you conduct in a month?  Year?”

“Can you show me statistics to prove your success?”

“What makes you different from other attorneys when it comes to license appeals?”

There is no “magical formula” for how driver’s license appeals are won in Michigan.  Instead, success in these hearings requires a lot of hard work, dedication, attention to detail and preparation.  And, a client’s chances of success increase dramatically by using an actual license appeals specialist to guide them.  Asking the questions above will help clients find the best option for help—at a time when they need it most.  After all, the importance of having a license to live, to work, to provide is immeasurable.  So, having the best license appeals attorney to assist is also immeasurable in its importance.
