Everyone knows the consequences of a criminal offense can be tough. There are fines and costs to pay, possible jail time, and probation requirements to deal with. It’s expensive! But, what people don’t think about right away is the consequences to their driver’s license. Drinking and driving is the number one reason people lose their privilege to drive. How long you’ll be without a driver’s license depends on how many drug and alcohol offenses you have on your record. Either way, getting your driver’s license restored is a big deal and getting through the process the right way the first time is everyone’s goal, and my guarantee!
Petitioning for restoration of your license is a complicated process. I can’t tell you how many clients think that showing the hearing officer how much they need a driver’s license will help them win it back. Make no mistake – this doesn’t matter. The key to winning is acknowledging that your drinking had become a problem, and then proving that you have quit drinking, have a sufficient amount of sobriety under your belt, and have the ability to maintain your sobriety for the indefinite future. Needing a driver’s license actually has nothing to do with being able to win it back.
As a nationwide driver’s license restoration lawyer I’ve handled hundreds of license appeal cases and have seen the bad, the ugly, and the ugliest. The state requires a lot of documentation, and all of the documentation is specific to each individual petitioner. There is no “one size fits all” way about it. I’m confident there is no other attorney who will treat you with as much patience and respect that I do. I stand behind my work, which is why I guarantee to win your license appeal and put that driver’s license back in your hand.
