I tried to save money and do 2 DLAD hearings myself. This was a great mistake. Each time I was denied the hearing officers opinion of me as lacking credibility despite having ironclad proof of sobriety. After the second hearing I knew I had to have an attorney. I called Mr. Grabel and he immediately returned my call within 10 minutes. He assigned Marcie his associate attorney for DLAD hearings.. We compiled all of the evidence together making sure all of the t’s were crossed and the i's dotted. The hearing went well but the hearing officer denied me again. Scott and Marcie were furious and immediately appealed to circuit court. At the court hearing the secretary of state tore me apart and Marcie gave the argument on why the DLAD was wrong. Fighting for my rights. After review from the judge and Marcie's arguments the judge ruled in my favor. Full driving privileges. No breathalyzer and no restrictions. I could have not done this on my own as the DLAD was intent on not giving my driver’s license back. My advice to anyone appealing a revocation of their driver’s license I strongly recommend Grabel and associates. Their fee is the best in town for all they will do for your case. Best investment I made to get my life back. Scott is the most likeable attorney I have ever met. Marcie is the most convincing attorney I ever heard present an argument in court. The attorneys in this law firm all work together for one cause and that is a favorable outcome at any cost for your legal problem.- Michael F. at Citysearch
Can't Go Wrong With Scott. My name is Dan Charlong and I lost my License eight years ago and have been trying to get it back ever since. I've since moved from Michigan to Minnesota. Three different attorneys have tried to help and I always got back a letter three years in a row that said I failed to meet minimum requirements to get it back. I was getting annoyed with all of the turn downs and was going to just give up. The bad thing about giving up is, I don't get to drive. I decided to try one more time and I found two attorneys from Michigan. The first attorney told me I HAD to come to Michigan to get it back because they would just deny me if I did it through the mail. The second (Scott Grabel), told me not to worry about it, it was a guarantee that I would get it back after he heard my situation. It took a little planning and hardly any work on my end to get the proper paperwork that they needed. I mailed it all out and I was completely comfortable waiting (after 8 years you become patient) for the results. I never had a single doubt that they would get the job done and BOOM, I got the phone call. I am reinstated in Michigan and I can finally live my life with my family in Minnesota. DO NOT GO ANYWHERE ELSE!!! These people know exactly what they are doing and will help you. Take if from someone who tried to shortcut it three different times and go with attorneys who didn't know what they were talking about. Scott isn't about the money, he'll even work with you on that. He likes helping people get back on the road and get on with their lives.- Daniel C. at Citysearch
Great law firm! I needed an attorney to help with a DUI, so I looked in the yellow pages and called several firms. Grabel and Associates was the only firm that virtually guaranteed that I could be successful at getting my driver's license back. The firm was great at letting me know what I needed to do, and supported me every step of the way. Marcie was my direct contact, and was wonderful at getting with me, and making sure every detail was taken care of. I am currently using them again to get my license back permanently. I have every confidence that they will make it happen. They are thorough and do what they say they will do. I would never have a hesitation to refer anyone to them for any criminal issue.- vmako at Citysearch
The best attorney in town. My Driver license was suspended for seven years as a result of 3 DUI and a MIP. Mr. Scott Grabel came very highly recommended through a mutual friend who had the same situation as me. Scott and Marcie walked me through every step of the way. Without them and there help and knowledge I would have never gotten my driver license. They know exactly what I needed and helped me retrieve all information necessary to obtain my license back. I would definitely recommend Mr. Grabel to anyone I know. Thanks again Scott Grabel you really gave me my life and freedom back, so THANK YOU.- Mikeaziz0201 at Citysearch
Professional. I lost my driver’s license 3 years ago. The process to get it back looked very complicated. So I called Scott Grabel & Associated (Thank God). From the at home visits to the calls every week to let me know what was going on and what I should do. I felt informed and confident. I would absolutely choose Grabel & Associates again. Oh, I almost forgot I got my License back!! Thanks again.- chaddyg8 at Citysearch
Driving Force! I lost my Driver License 13 years ago in Michigan. Today my Driver License has been fully restored in the State of Florida. It was issued with the words "Safe Driver" on the bottom of the license. As a former Legal Administrator I felt confident I could defend myself. I was unsuccessful in 3 attempts. I thought there was little hope. I was bogged down in red-tape getting denied for technicalities. I was living out of state and it became a nightmare. I decided to hire an attorney. I did my research and interviewed several attorneys. Grabel & Associates was the most knowledgeable Firm I encountered in DUI Law. I made reference calls to former clients and was convinced I had hired the best! Scott gave me hope!
The difference between a good Attorney and a great Attorney is communication! Scott and his associate Marcie did what they said they were going to do and kept me informed every step of the way. When I called Scott answered or would call me back. When I e-mailed I would get an answer the same day.
Thanks to Grabel & Associates the nightmare is over. My hat is off to Scott & Marcie for a job well done! You can't afford not to retain Grabel & Associates if you want to win!

# 1 in Helping retrieve license back!! I did not have a license for 5 years until I used Grabel & Associates. I needed a fast way of receiving my license back for work and 3 months and 1 hearing later it was granted to me. I could not have gone into this hearing alone. The lawyer was on top of her game and asked all the right questions where all I had to do was answer yes or no. The price is definitely worth every penny! If you want assurance and no stress going through this process then choose Grabel & Associates. #1 Criminal Lawyer in Michigan!- dougschaefer13 at Citysearch
There are many lawyers out there that claim to be able to get your license returned to you. I can truly say Scott Grabel and his team helped me get my driver’s license back the first time! Even though I thought it was an insurmountable task they walked me through every step of the process. Grabel & Associates are the people you need because they seem to have a formula that works .- D.A. at Yelp

Because every case is different and driven by its individual facts, the outcome of your case may be different than the outcome of the cases listed above. We can make no promise, assurance, or guarantee that the same results listed here will occur in your case if you retain us.
Please note: Recently DLAD/DAAD changed their name to the Administrative Hearings Section (AHS). Common use of the name AHS has not yet been widely accepted and the entity responsible for driver’s license hearings is still referred to as DLAD/DAAD in almost all legal areas, which is why we continue to use the term “DLAD/DAAD” throughout our website. More information about this change can be found at the Michigan Secretary of State’s website here.
