Preparation is key
You don’t run a marathon without training for it. You don’t make a speech without a little bit of advanced preparation. At Razavi Law, we believe that training is critical for your Michigan driver’s license restoration hearing. Our preparation starts long before your hearing day. We make sure that you know what you need to do in the time leading up to your hearing. Expect us to spend a lot of time learning about you. We have expert substance abuse evaluators and other helpful professionals that can help you document your sobriety in a convincing way. We pour over your recommendation letters to make sure that they’re addressing the right things.
How long does it take?
No two cases are the same, so we start by talking to you about your case. If you’re eligible for license restoration right away, we prepare the paperwork as quickly as we can and file your case. In some cases, you’re back on the road in as little as two months. In other cases, you might have some work to do before you file such as attending alcoholics anonymous or working on a documentable support system and sobriety plan. In a perfect world, a case can take about ten weeks from start to finish, but as your Michigan driver’s license restoration attorneys, we’re willing to stand by you however long it takes.
What can I expect?
Since we’ve helped hundreds of people restore your Michigan driver’s license, we know the problems that people have when they try to go it alone. In most cases, these mistakes are avoidable. If you don’t know what the Secretary of State Driver’s License Appeal Division wants to hear, you might not prepare your paperwork in the right away. You might not bring the right documentation or the right amount of paperwork. You might not be prepared for the questions that the hearing officer will ask at your hearing. You might think that you can go it alone without an attorney.
Don’t make this mistake! If you try to go it alone and you’re unsuccessful, you might have to wait for up to a year to try again. That can mean lost opportunities for work. In fact, you stand to lose far more in lost opportunities that you would ever spend on an attorney! Let our experience be your best weapon as you create a plan for success on the first try.

Are you eligible?
The first step to your Michigan driver’s license reinstatement is to determine whether you’re eligible to get your license back. That means that we want to talk with you about the reasons that you don’t have a license. We evaluate how long your mandatory suspension is and when you’re eligible to apply for reinstatement. Usually this means waiting at least one year from the time you lost your license. It usually also means that you’re able to say that you’ve been completely sober from alcohol and drugs for at least a year.
When we meet with you, we talk to you in detail about what to expect at your hearing. We go through the time frame of the case and the different possible results. You ask us all of the questions that you have about the process. If you’re not able to meet with us in person, we can talk to you over the phone. We’re proud to be the license restoration attorneys that represent clients throughout the State of Michigan.
Evaluating your risks
Part of what we do as your Michigan license restoration lawyers is refer you to our substance abuse evaluator for a review. They will meet with you and get to know you. They will ask you about the criminal convictions that led to your license suspension. They will want to know that you’ve made positive changes in your life, and they’ll talk about how you stay sober. Once you’ve met with them, they’ll complete a report.
This evaluation is critical to success at your Michigan driver license restoration hearing. We make sure that your evaluation is complete and that it addresses all of the most important issues for the hearing officer. Then, we make sure that it’s part of the evidence that the Secretary of State officer has at their disposal when they evaluate your case. This evaluate can be extremely helpful when it comes to successfully restoring your license.
Letters from family and friends
The next step is to collect letters of support. Family, friends, neighbors and coworkers can write letters on your behalf. These letters can talk about ways that you contribute to the community. They should verify your sobriety if they’re able to talk about their observations. When we work with a Michigan driver license restoration client, we make sure that you know what things need to be in these letters. The right letters can make a big difference when it’s time for the hearing officer to make a decision. Having our Michigan driver license lawyer team on your side means that your letters are fine-tuned and reviewed for content before we submit them to the Secretary of State.
Practice for your hearing
