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 are not abusing or addicted to drugs or alcohol.
- You understand the rules and laws of the road.
- You intend to follow the laws of the road.
- You are not likely to relapse into substance use.
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.
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.

Serving Lansing, Ingham County & Michigan
White Law PLLC has vast experience representing clients who are facing charges or accusations of a narcotics offense. In some jurisdictions, even the most minor possession charge can result in a jail sentence or probation. It is important that you work with an experienced drug crime lawyer early on for the best possible outcome.
Whether you are facing accusations of a drug crime involving medical marijuana, marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, illegal prescriptions, or another controlled substance, we can skillfully navigate the criminal process with you and work hard to protect your future.

Cutting-Edge Defense for Narcotics-Related Charges
Our Okemos criminal defense lawyers work closely with each client to develop a tailored, effective defense. We approach each case with thorough investigations and detailed analysis of the evidence so we have a complete understanding of the facts in each case. We look for weaknesses in the prosecutor's evidence and mitigating factors that can work in your favor.
With drug crimes, law enforcement officials are often overzealous when investigating individuals, often leading to illegal searches and seizures and violation of a person's Constitutional rights. If any evidence was illegally obtained, we can push for a dismissal. We are also prepared to negotiate skillfully with prosecutors to help keep you out of jail, and even take your case to court if we believe the circumstances favor your case.
