Driver’s License Restoration Hearings

Michigan Driver's License Attorneys

If you have been cited for a drunk driving violation, it is likely that your driver’s license has been subject to a suspension or revocation. If you take action quickly, you can request a hearing where you can fight to hold on to your driving privileges. The Administrative Hearings Section (AHS), formerly known as the Driver Assessment and Appeal Division (DAAD), will hear your case to decide whether you should be able to keep your driver's license.

You must prove that you are completely sober and do not represent a risk for re-offending. Our Michigan driver's license restoration attorneys can work to maximize the strength of your case for when you appear in front of the AHS. At White Law PLLC, we understand how important your driving privileges are and we can help you to see that your voice is heard.

Request a free consultation with our firm and discover how we can help you hold on to your driving privileges.

What to Expect at Your Hearing

During your hearing, an examiner will be looking for any signs of continued alcohol or substance abuse. You will need to show that you are sober and do not engage in any dangerous driving activity.

Typically, the AHS will want to see that (1) you have taken steps to manage any previous alcohol related issues and (2) you possess the motivation and ability to abide by the rules of the road. While this may sound straightforward, the majority of people have little experience with this process and are not aware of the many pitfalls which they may fall into. Our driver's license attorneys, on the other hand, have substantial experience with restoration hearings and can provide legal guidance every step of the way.

Steps our firm can take which may help your case include:

  • Documenting any treatment history
  • Preparing witness testimony
  • Securing police reports and records
  • Scheduling a hearing
  • Reviewing questions likely to be asked

Legal Help for Restoration Hearings

If you have been convicted of a drunk driving offense, you will be given one chance to present your case to the AHS each year. Do not take the chance of facing your hearing alone. At White Law PLLC, we understand how restoration hearings are likely to be structured as well as what the AHS will be looking to hear.

Our firm understands that the smallest details can make a substantial impact on your case and when you need uncompromising legal advocacy, our Michigan driver's license lawyers are here to help.

Real Testimonials
From Previous Clients

  • I am indebted to Mr. White and White Law for the rest of my life. They are like family to me.

    “People v. F.T. (2009) - "When my case started, it looked like my life was over with. I didn’t know what to do. I was charged with first degree criminal sexual assault and six counts of rape; I was facing prison for the rest of my life. I went to jail, my children were taken from me… I didn’t know what to do. ​ A friend of mine recommended White Law PLLC and attorney James White. They jumped right into my case and my situation. Mr. White opened my eyes and shined the light on my case; they did everything in their power to help me. They hired a private investigator and expert witnesses. The last week of my trial, I was in the office almost every day; I know that Mr. White put his heart and soul into my trial, and that he believed in me. ​ When my trial began, everyone that I saw would look at me funny, like I was a bad person. By the time the witnesses had finished testifying at trial, everyone was using those bad looks for my accusers. I was found not guilty and cleared of all charges. ​ God helped me through White Law PLLC, and I am indebted to Mr. White and White Law for the rest of my life. They are like family to me. If you’re in trouble and you think your life is over, call White Law. They gave me my wife, my family, and my life back."”

  • Attorney Jamie White and his legal team are amazing.

    “Attorney Jamie White and his legal team are amazing. Although my situation did not end up in actual court, this team was well prepared in the event that it did. I was notified and in the loop on every step that was happening and it was very comforting to know that this team was well prepared to handle my situation. If I ever need legal counsel again, or know of anyone who does, White Law PLLC is my first choice.”

  • White Law PLLC saved my family's lives

    “My wife and I were arrested in October of 2014 on drug manufacturing and gun possession charges because we were growing medical marijuana in our home. My wife was charged with five felony counts and I was charged with eight felony counts. We were both looking at 15 years. Jamie got both my wife's and my felony charges down to two and the gun charges dropped. The gun charges carried a two year mandatory prison sentence. In the end, my wife and I both got 18 month probation. Jamie and everyone in his office were so nice and answered all of our questions any time we called. I recommend Jamie White and White Law PLLC for any legal problems. They saved my family's lives.”
