Restoring Your Driver's License in Michigan

Even if your license has been revoked for life, you may have options!

After an OWI/DUI conviction in Michigan, you may be able to apply for license restoration sooner than you think. If you are granted a hearing and you lose, however, then you have to wait a full year before you can schedule another hearing. You need to work with a Michigan driver’s license restoration attorney who can get you results the first time.

At White Law PLLC, our Michigan driver’s license restoration lawyers can determine your eligibility, help you collect documents for your license restoration petition, and represent you in your hearing.

  • Negotiated non-sexual offense misdemeanor Criminal Sexual Conduct

    Our client was a juvenile charged with a criminal sexual conduct offense. White Law PLLC was successful in negotiating a plea of a non-sexual offense misdemeanor for our client.

  • Debt Resolution & Forgiveness Debt Negotiation
    Client's ex-husband failed to pay on a substantial amount of debt from a judgment that was issued against our client almost a decade ago. Our client learned of the judgment when a law firm garnished funds from her bank account. White Law PLLC attorney John Fraser was able to negotiate a substantial resolution and forgiveness of almost two thirds the debt and had the judgment set aside.
  • Charges dismissed Delivery and Manufacture of Marijuana
    Our client was a medical marijuana caregiver who was charged with a 7-year felony for delivery and manufacture of marijuana. The client was fully compliant with the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act, but the prosecutor attempted to bring charges on the basis that the client’s grow facility was within 1,000 feet of a school. Attorney John Fraser successfully argued a Motion for Immunity pursuant to Section 4 of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act, and the court dismissed the case against our client. After the case was dismissed, the prosecutor decided to charge our client with 4-year felony for possessing marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school for the same circumstances as the first case. Again, attorney John Fraser successfully argued a Motion for Immunity pursuant to Section 4 of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act, and the court dismissed the case for a second time. Our client was found to be fully compliant with the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act and was granted immunity from prosecution.

  • Client's full driver's license granted Driver's License Restoration
    Our client lost his driver’s license after two drinking and driving offenses and three minor in possession alcohol offenses. He had not had a driver’s license for approximately seven years. Initially, we were able to obtain a restricted license for our client, but the Secretary of State denied a full license because he had a Michigan Medical Marijuana Act card and had used medical marijuana in the past -even though he no longer used marijuana. After appealing the Secretary of State Hearing Officer’s decision to the 30th Circuit Court, the Circuit Court granted our client a full driver’s license because the Hearing Officer’s decision violated the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act.

  • I would recommend Mr. White and White Law PLLC to anyone seeking any type of criminal defense.

    “When we got the news that our grandson was facing very serious charges, we were devastated. We didn’t know any criminal defense attorneys and didn’t know who to turn to. After speaking to a few people, three of them recommend attorney James White. Mr. White was able to meet with us right away, which was a relief because we had so many questions. The whole ordeal of what our grandson was being charged with was very stressful on us, both emotionally and financially. Mr. White was kind and understanding. He kept us informed and was available throughout the case for any questions or concerns we had. Mr. White fought hard to achieve the best possible outcome for our grandson, and in the end his efforts and determination brought our grandson the best results we could have hoped for. What stood out to us is how down to earth Mr. White is. He handles himself in a professional and respectful manner and will work hard to get the results his client needs. I’d also like to thank the support staff of White Law PLLC who were kind, polite, and helpful whenever we called. I would recommend Mr. White and White Law PLLC to anyone seeking any type of criminal defense.”
