The Importance of a Guarantee
Many of my clients remark that it was my guarantee that influenced their decision to hire me for their Michigan driver’s license restoration or clearance appeal. I am profoundly grateful to be able to do that, and for the confidence it inspires in my clients, but I cannot imagine doing anything less. For all of the experience and skill I point to as the basis of my success, and for all of my self-confidence, I should back it all up with an ironclad warranty, and I do. After all, if you lose a license appeal case, you cannot file another for at least 12 months. Because winning your case the first time is so critical, my guarantee means we’re both invested in doing just that.
There are very specific rules and requirements to win back your Michigan license, or obtain a “clearance” so you can obtain and out-of-state license. Understanding exactly how the Michigan Secretary of State’s Administrative Hearing Section (AHS) applies and interprets them is key to winning your appeal. Because this is what I do all day, every day, handling well over 150 license restoration and clearance cases a year, I can and do guarantee my services.
To be perfectly candid, I let a lot of money go out the door by declining to take cases for people who aren’t really sober. I’d have a much bigger income by simply taking on every client willing to pay my fee, whether or not they meet the Michigan Secretary of State’s criteria to win. However, if I lowered my standards to do that, I could never provide my guarantee.
I make my money winning license restoration and clearance appeals the first time around. Because I guarantee to win every case I take, it is critical that my office screens every potential client to make sure they can win. I don’t try and “game” the system, and my honesty and integrity are not for sale. I do things the right way.The Secret to my Success
You must be Sober. The very first question a driver’s license restoration lawyer should ask a potential client is: “When did you quit drinking?” Genuine sobriety is the absolute minimum requirement to even have a chance to win a license appeal. If you think otherwise, then try it on your own, or with another attorney who doesn’t have these standards. You won’t get a guarantee, and you won’t get your license back, either.
The most important legal requirements of the license appeal process are, by law, to make sure your “alcohol problem…is under control," and that it is "likely to remain under control.” This means that, through the evidence we submit, we have to show that you haven’t had a drink for a certain period of time and are otherwise a safe bet to never drink again. Make no mistake, saying this is one thing, but proving it is quite another. If you've tried before, then you already know it’s hard.
I can’t offer my guarantee without requiring sobriety, but neither can I require sobriety without losing a lot of potential clients, either. I’m happy with the choice I’ve made, and my guarantee means that I won’t take your money unless I know I can win your license back. Therefore, if I do take your money, there’s no need to ask or worry about your “chances” of winning, because my Guarantee equals 100% certainty that you will get back on the road. You simply cannot do better than that.
