Defense to Driving on a Suspended License

In Michigan, the penalties for driving with a suspended license are severe. They range from a doubling of the length of the initial suspension, fines and driver's responsibility fees, all the way to substantial incarceration. Still, some people drive on a suspended or revoked license-sometimes because they feel they have no other choice. With the lawyers of Grabel & Associates at your side, you can have other options.

Rather than taking the risk of jail time or other serious consequences, if your driver's license has been suspended or revoked you should immediately discuss your situation with a Michigan attorney who has successfully handled matters in front of the Secretary of State's Driver Assessment and Appeal Division (DAAD). While the attorneys at Grabel & Associates can help you get your license reinstated, they can also help defend you against charges of driving on a suspended license (DWLS) or driving on a revoked license (DWLR).

Accessible 24/7, Grabel & Associates offers a free confidential consultation and accepts all credit cards. Call us or contact us online right away to discuss your case!

Defending You Against DWLS/DWLR Charges

If you've been charged with driving while on a suspended or revoked license in Michigan, the experienced defense attorneys at Grabel & Associates are ready to act immediately to protect your rights and put on the strongest defense possible on your behalf.

Police officers and prosecutors can make mistakes, and people are sometimes justified in driving on a suspended license. Our attorneys will analyze your case to determine the answers to the following questions and to understand your circumstances:

  • Were you improperly stopped by the police?
  • Did an officer mishandle your arrest (for example, not informing you of your rights)?
  • Did the prosecutor file incorrect charges?
  • Had you been given proper notice that your license was suspended?
  • Were you forced to drive because of a family emergency or other type of emergency that might justify your driving on a suspended license?

In many circumstances, the attorneys at Grabel & Associates may be able to get your driving privileges restored, reduce the suspension period, or have the charges against you either reduced or dropped altogether. Factors that may influence the chances of charges being reduced include:

  • the reason for the initial suspension of your license
  • the outcome of your driving on a suspended license (i.e. whether or not you caused an accident or property damage)
  • any prior convictions you might have for driving while on a suspended or revoked license

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.

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.
