How can our Michigan driver’s license lawyers help you? We can:

License Reinstatement After Revocation

To reinstate your license after a revocation, matters can get much more complicated. In addition to the requirements related to driver’s licenses suspension, a revocation will require you schedule a Driver Assessment and Appeal Division (DAAD) hearing with the Michigan SOS.

At your DAAD hearing, you will need to prove to an examiner that:

You can only request one DAAD hearing each year. If you are not approved at your hearing to regain your driver’s license, you must wait an entire year to try again. For this reason, it is crucial that you do all you can to thoroughly prepare for your DAAD hearing. Our Okemos lawyers can provide you with the insight and information you need to succeed.

If you don’t win your license restoration hearing, then you cannot apply for another hearing until a full year has passed. When you need driving privileges restored now, you can rely on our trial-tested defense attorneys to handle every aspect of your case to give you your best chance of winning. Find out how our Michigan driver’s license attorneys can help you protect your rights, your career, and your future.

How Can I Prepare for a Court Hearing?

Before you request a hearing, you must submit all paperwork—a substance abuse evaluation by a State Licensed Substance Abuse Counselor, 10-panel drug screen, evidence to support sobriety (AA meeting attendance or drug counseling), and references letters that document sobriety—to the Secretary of State. Once you send those documents in—after thoroughly proofreading for errors—you will be notified of your hearing date, which is typically scheduled two to three months after your paperwork has been submitted.

On your court hearing date, you must wear formal and professional attire. Men should wear suits or a combination of dress pants, a dress shirt, and a tie. Women should wear either a conservative dress, a pantsuit, or a combination of a formal blouse and a pair of slacks. Avoid wearing t-shirts, tank tops, jeans, shorts, and sandals.

When you appear for your hearing, make sure you arrive about 15 minutes before your court appearance to give yourself time to find parking and to further prepare. Only answer the questions that are asked by the hearing officer and speak slowly and deliberately.

Having our experienced attorneys on your side can help you gather the necessary paperwork, make sure everything is correct, and prepare you for your court appearance.

Differences Between Suspension & Revocation

A driver’s license suspension is the typical means the state uses to remove someone’s driving privileges. It can be enacted after a variety of traffic violations or an average, nonviolent DUI arrest. A revocation is reserved for when it appears that the driver has serious substance abuse issues. Revocation may even require a driver to retake driver’s education courses or the driver’s test before a DAAD hearing can be scheduled.

Real Testimonials
From Previous Clients

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

    “People v. D.B. (2016) - "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." ”
