Drivers License Restoration Testimonials
License Restored in 2 Months ... after 11 Years "As soon as I retained Joseph Awad as my attorney my anxiety was cut in half. I put off trying to get my license back for 11 years hoping that the hold would just go away...it doesn't! I have been clean and sober for 3 years, I go to meetings and I take my sobriety very seriously, but that is only half the battle. Within one week of Joe's services and advice it was already worth it. First, we had a long conversation about how the process works, and then we laid out a plan. But like any plan, problems will always come up. It took about two months all together, we spoke on the phone at least twice a week, and had countless emails. He ALWAYS called me back the same day, and my emails were always returned right away. There is no way to do this without CONTINUOUS legal advice, the direction that the secretary of state gives you is not nearly enough. I got my approval letter yesterday and I have never been so relieved, I can't believe it over! And there is no way I could have done it without Joseph Awad." - MJ, Birmingham, MI

All Personal Information Submitted to Us is Kept Strictly Confidential
In order to determine if you are once again safe to drive, the Secretary of State looks for testimony from you through your lawyer regarding your lifestyle and some of the changes you have made. The questions that follow have been asked in one way or another by hearing officers to help evaluate your ability to drive safe and sober. The author will pose the question and follow up with an explanation of the question and what an honest answer would reveal. Please keep in mind that these questions are illustrative only; they may not and indeed, need not be the actual questions asked. However, the questions provide insight into the standards to which you will be held when assessing your ability to once again operate a motor vehicle.
You will likely be asked to provide some preliminary information including your name, address, and the like. You will also likely be asked to provide any and all documentation that was not otherwise provided to the hearing officer; such documentation could include any and all “Alcohols Anonymous” verification sheets, toxicology reports that test for use the illicit use of drugs and alcohol, written proof of therapy, as well as reference letters from various people that can legitimately attest to your sobriety. You must make sure that your paperwork is organized and readily accessible to any hearing officer that demands them. It is also wise to make copies of everything you bring to the hearing, as submitted documents are not usually returned.
A Word about License Hearing Documents
Before going further, please heed a word of caution and a warning: do not even consider the use of fraudulent or altered documents! The use of false or forged AA sheets, for example, is bound to keep you riding a bike for the foreseeable future. In this regard, it is the author’s opinion that one must be very prepared for the hearing. A lack of preparation is probably the number one reason people fail at the Restoration hearing. Time and time again clients approach me in utter amazement that, notwithstanding a lengthy period of sobriety, the hearing officer denied the request for licensing. My response usually involves a polite criticism regarding their lack of preparation. The hearing officer is looking for direct and truthful answers to questions that probe a person’s past and oftentimes, bring them face to face with the very demons that put them at the hearing in the first place. It may be a humbling experience, but your decision to revisit and mend the past once and for all makes a lasting impression on the very people that have the awesome responsibility of ensuring only sober people regain their right to drive.
