Please note: Recently Administrative Hearings Section (AHS) changed their name to the Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight. Common use of the name Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight has not yet been widely accepted and the entity responsible for driver's license hearings is still referred to as AHS in almost all legal areas, which is why we continue to use the term "AHS" throughout our website. More information about this change can be found at the Michigan Secretary of State's website here.

Client Reviews

Mr. Grabel took time to listen to me, and fully explain myself on my first call, well before I signed the retainer. He really listened, he understood the legal proses, and suggest a course of action that cost me nothing beyond the initial retainer, and it ended favorably for me. Not only did I get what I want, but I received more help that I thought I would get. The amount of attention I received was pleasantly surprising. Mr. Grabel took a real interest in my case, because he understood I had done no wrong. He really fought for me! I'll return to Scott Grabel if I ever need him again FOR SURE. H.R.
This firm is no joke! DO NOT waste your money on any other law firm in the state. I paid $3000 for a "high-level" attorney and was denied twice. After having a consultation with Grabel & Associates, they could not believe I was ever denied and got my license back first try. I am telling you from first hand experience - INVEST IN GRABEL & ASSOCIATES!! Rob
My lawyer was extremely thorough, and did everything possible to make sure I got the results I was looking for. R.B.
