What Should I Know Before Calling a License Appeal Attorney?

If you have lost your Michigan Driver’s License due to drunk driving convictions, breath tests refusals, medical reasons or even point accumulation, you’re in a state of panic and frustration. How are you supposed to get to work or school?  How can you take care of your children?  Get to medical appointments?  And if you do drive, will police take you to jail during a pandemic?

When a person loses their license, they understandably seek assistance from the legal community. But, finding an experienced, dedicated and respected driver’s license appeals attorney is tough. When you do connect with a reputable driver’s license restoration attorney, you’re often scrambling to make sure you ask all the right questions:

“When am I eligible for a license appeal?”

“What do I have to do to earn a full, or restricted, license?”

“Do you specialize in my type of license appeal?”

“Do you handle all license appeals (revocation appeals, medical appeals, etc.), or just refusal hearings?”

“Do you regularly practice in front of the Secretary of State hearing judges who will decide my case?”

Attorney Daniel T. Geherin, owner of MiLicenseLawyer.com and author of The Michigan Drunk Driving and Driver’s License Restoration Handbook, has been answering these and other license appeal questions for the last 21+ years.  He’s dedicated his career to helping put drivers back on the road following a license suspension or revocation. He’s recognized as a license appeals specialist in Ann Arbor and throughout Michigan. He has taught seminars and written articles through the Michigan Institute of Continuing Legal Education (ICLE) on license appeal topics. He’s won license appeals hearings throughout the state, and boasts a 98% success rate in winning license appeals. In the last 10 years alone, he’s helped put 300+ clients back on the road lawfully and legally.  And, To prove that these results are authentic and frequent, he even posts the case numbers of successful appeals on his website here so that clients can see his extensive success.
