DUI/OWI Revocation Appeals

If you’ve been convicted of multiple drunk driving or substance abuse cases, especially in a short period of time, your Michigan license has likely been revoked.  This means you must apply for the reinstatement of your license, and must jump through several “hoops”.  For the majority of cases, the application process goes through the Michigan Secretary of State, not through the courts.  This means you’re subject to all of Lansing’s red tape and regulations. Most of these hearings are conducted through the Michigan Secretary of State’s Administrative Hearing Section (AHS), previously known as the Driver’s Assessment and Appeal Division (DAAD).  AHS utilizes 10 different Administrative Law Judges (aka, “Hearing Officers”) who preside over these hearings and ultimately decide if a person should have his/her license reinstated.  

Daniel T. Geherin, founder of Geherin Law Group, PLLC. has been a license appeals specialist for 23+ years.  He he’s conducted over 1,500 substance-abuse license reinstatement hearings at DAAD/AHS, and has appeared before every Hearing Officer on multiple occasions. His clients come from all over the State of Michigan, and all over the country.  Because of this, he has helped reinstate over 300 Michigan licenses in the last decade alone.   

At GLG Michigan, we consult with you to explain every step of this complicated process.  We provide you with outlines, forms, and referrals to begin the application procedure.  Typically, the appeal process begins with a Substance Abuse Evaluation.  We have relationships with therapists throughout the State of Michigan that we may refer you for this Evaluation.  We help review the paperwork, organize it, and request the hearing via an online SOS download system. We’ll thoroughly prepare you for testifying at your hearing.  Most importantly, we’ll appear with you at the hearing and fight for you to have your license restored.

Finding an experienced attorney to help you with your driver’s license reinstatement in Michigan  can mean the difference between driving again and waiting another grueling year to begin the application process all over again. Too often, attorneys try to “dabble” in license restoration work, and simply don’t have the expertise and knowledge necessary to help.  In many occasions, these same attorneys don’t even prepare their clients to testify until the date of the hearing itself! 

At GLG Michigan, we take a hands-on and proactive approach to license restoration cases, and keep you advised every step of the way.  We know the process, we appear before the judges, and we understand that the road to success requires intensive preparation.    

For a dedicated, experienced and successful license appeals attorney anywhere in Southeastern Michigan, please contact Dan Geherin and his team.  They’ll look over your driving record, honestly assess your chances of success, form the best plan to prevail, and then fight aggressively to restore your license. Contact us 24/7 at (734) 263-2780
