Michigan Drivers License Restoration Lawyer

Why Hire Me as Your Michigan Driver's License Attorney?

The short answer is that I guarantee to win your license appeal. You simply cannot do better than that. 

This completely removes any risk when your hire me as your Michigan driver's license reinstatement attorney. But there is more to this than just a guarantee.

I don’t just take any old case that comes my way. I will only take on people who are really sober, meaning alcohol-free, and who are genuinely committed to remaining that way.  

And for what it’s worth, most of my clients are NOT involved in AA.

My success has everything to do with being genuine and truthful. I don’t try and “game” or scam the system. I am honest, I play by the rules, and I win fair and square.

I am the only Michigan drivers license attorney I know of who requires sobriety to accept a case while also guaranteeing to win it. You can be willing to pay my fee all day long, but if you’re not sober, and you think you can still drink, I’m not interested, and I won't take your case. 

In other words, you need more than just a retainer to hire me. This makes me different.

The primary concern of anyone looking into a license appeal is about winning. 

Yet to me, it’s also about ethics and integrity. My integrity is not for sale. 

I’m not willing to just take somebody’s money to hold their hand and walk them through the license appeal process without being sure that I am going to win their case. I am "in it to win it,” and, because of my guarantee, am invested in your success. 

As the old saying goes, anything worth doing is worth doing right.

My blog is the biggest and best online library about the Michigan driver’s license restoration and clearance process you can find anywhere. 

It is a resource used by lawyers and non-lawyers alike. It's a given that, if you speak with any other lawyer about license appeals, he or she has learned plenty from it. I write and publish 2 new articles every week, making me, quite literally, the guy who wrote (and is still writing) the book on this subject.

Beyond all the legal stuff, I have an unsurpassed knowledge of the clinical side of things, as well, having completed a post-graduate program of addiction studies. 

License appeals cast the spotlight on drinking problems, and my understanding of the development, diagnosis, treatment of, and recovery from them provides a huge advantage to my clients, and is one of the reasons I guarantee to win every case I take. 

There is no lawyer who understands more than me about both the clinical and legal sides of the diagnosis of and recovery from an alcohol problem, the 2 most critical issues in a license appeal case. 

This is what I do all day, every day. The main focus of my working life is on alcohol, sobriety, and driving issues - from driver’s license restoration to DUI cases.

In order to win, you must prove to the Secretary of State that your alcohol problem is"under control," and "likely to remain under control.” 

That means have been and will be able to stay sober. 

If I didn’t require sobriety as a condition to accept a Michigan license reinstatement appeal, or even if I could win a license back for someone who could “fool” the Secretary of State about their commitment to sobriety, what would that say about me? What kind of person would do that? 

Not me.

You can bet that this insistence on real sobriety has cost me a lot of money. I would collect a lot more fees if I did not mandate sobriety as a “first requirement” to accept a Michigan driver's license restoration case. 

Yet the payoff to me, while perhaps not calculable in dollars, is huge. I feel really good about what I do. 

I never help some risky drinker get back behind the wheel where they could hurt someone. I have a rock solid reputation for only filing license appeals for people who have honestly quit drinking. 

This is exactly why I win almost every single one of my Michigan drivers license restoration and clearance cases the first time around, and why I guarantee that I will win yours.

Underlying every license case I take is truthfulness

As the case moves forward and we prepare for their hearing, I reassure every one of my clients that beyond all the details we’ve covered, above and beyond all the evidence we’ve put together, and on top of everything else we’ve done, we’re going in to tell the truth, and nothing can top that.

Yes, I’m different, and yes, that costs me money, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Would you?
