Do you need your Michigan driver’s license restored? Unhappy with your current attorney? Request a free consultation now.

Why Are We So Successful?

It comes down to two main reasons: preparation and experience.

We pay meticulous attention to detail.

The Secretary of State requires your substance use evaluation, letters of support, and petitioner’s affidavit to be perfect.

Any discrepancies or inconsistencies can result in you losing your case.

And losing your case means a one year wait before you can again apply for reinstatement.

This is one of the main reasons why you should never choose an attorney based on price.

Always hire the proven attorney.

We’ve been handling driver license restoration for decades, specialize in them, and have won the overwhelming majority of our cases.

We’ve handled thousands of driver license restorations.

Have we won every single case? Of course not.

But we’ve won most of them, learned from initial losses and are committed to obtaining the best possible outcome, every single time.

Helping You Get Your Driving Privileges Back

Unlike a license suspension in which the license is reinstated automatically after the holder pays the reinstatement fee, when your license has been revoked you have to apply to the courts to have it restored.

Additionally, you’ll have to attend a Driver License Appeal Division Hearing at which the court will determine if your driving privileges will be reinstated.

At The Law Offices of Barton Morris, our Michigan driver’s license restoration lawyers can help you with all aspects of the process and will be by your side in court, ensuring your rights are aggressively defended.

The Process of Having Your Driver’s License Restored

Most commonly, a driver’s license will be revoked for a specified period following an OWI conviction. For example, your license may be revoked for a year if you receive two (2) OWI offenses within seven (7) years, or it may be revoked for five (5) years if you receive three (3) OWI offenses within ten (10) years.

At the end of your revocation period, you can apply to have your license reinstated.

The reinstatement process involves:

  • Reviewing your driving record and conviction history
  • Collecting letters that document your sobriety
  • Reviewing your personal history
  • Evaluating for substance abuse
  • Drug testing

During the hearing, your lawyer will present evidence about your case and, afterward, they’ll handle any follow-up that is necessary.

For example, if you’re required to have a breath alcohol ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle, we’ll help you obtain the device.

If your application is successful, your license will be restored.

Barton was amazing and I could not have had the positive outcome without his guidance. His team is prompt and great to work with. He even called while out of the country on vacation, which I feel shows he went above and beyond what someone might expect from their attorney. Experienced and cares! I would highly recommend Barton!

Very professional. I came and spoke to Barton Morris about my situation and my case. I asked him if he was willing to help me. He asked about the details and my background and history. He give me a positive confidence he can help me and my odds. His price is reasonable. He’s not one of those hole in the wall lawyers who treat you as a number. You are a human being with a personal life. You treats you as a valued client no matter how big or small the case.

I had Mike Norman as my lawyer for a case. I just wanted to come on here and thank him for doing his best for me. I am grateful during this stressful time. I’ve used Barton Morris as a lawyer about 11 years ago and he was awesome which is why we came back. I do recommend!

Extremely knowledgeable and very helpful when it comes to navigating the complicated nature of cannabis businesses in Michigan. I met with Barton where he answered all my questions about the pre-qualification application, and was prompt in answering subsequent questions through email after the meeting was completed. I certainly plan to continue utilize Barton’s knowledge in the future.

Just sitting here on my balcony. A bit chilly but sunny and beautiful. I am ever so grateful to have 100% freedom. Wasn’t sure I would ever meet this day. Hiring you(and your team) was the best decision I have ever made. You are a true master of your trade. As you sit with your beautiful family on Thanksgiving know that this year I am truly thankful of my freedom and the choice to hire Barton Morris. Thanks again. I will never forget what you have done for me.
