After having my driver's license revoked back in 2007, Mr. Granzeier was successful in getting my license restored. I had tried to have my license restored previously working with a different attorney, however I was denied. Mr. Granzeier pays great attention to detail and is the best in my opinion at what he does.
I didn't believe I had a chance of getting my license back the first time in front of the DLAD. Even though I quit drinking, I don't attend AA or any treatment program. I believed that the DLAD would routinely deny me my first time. But I did win my license back the first time. I was way more prepared for the hearing than I realized thanks to mike.
I lost my license over four years ago because of a second OWI offense. I was sure I would not get it back on a first attempt. Michael Granzeier was very knowledgeable and detailed, he made sure i was prepared extensively. He absolutly knows what he is doing when it comes to license restoration. I was able to get it back on a first attempt with the most leaniency. I would highly recommend Michael Granzeier if you want your driver's license back.
Mike was as professional as they come. I have had several attorneys in the past who were less professional and unable to "get the job done". And when it comes to DUIs, Driver's License restorations, and probation violations; he will get things done after every other attorney tells you there is no hope!!!!!! Mike knows the law, well. It is obvious that Mike's most important goal is to advocate fully on his client's behalf. His experience is obvious as he prepares his clients from beginning to end of any legal matter. Mike will have you going to your court date or Driver's License appeal with full confidence, providing client preparation and explanation of the process. Mike was my attorney for two driver's license appeals which went smoothly and seamlessly, thanks to Mike's help. I highly recommend consulting first with Michael Granzeier for ANY legal matter. If he is unable to help, he is always willing to provide referrals for other great attorneys! Thank you Mike, for getting my life back to normalcy!!!
Attorney at Law Michael J Granzeier:
Michael J Granzeier recently represented me in a series of attempts to restore my driving privileges.
Secretary of state denied my appeal although Mr. Granzeier was prepared and intelligently argued on my behalf. It seemed as though the decision was made before we entered the building.
Mr. Granzeier was not done yet. More work, more information and to circuit court we went. Mr. Granzeier was not to be denied!!! Not one but two circuit court appearances, his factual representation overcame the secretary of states objections and the arguments made by the attorney general.
Now through his determination and most importantly his understanding of the law and my rights I have been granted the privilege to drive again.
An attorney who tried when most wouldn't. An attorney who did the homework necessary to represent me when I couldn't represent myself.
Thank you for always taking my calls and thank you for caring enough so others believed enough to give me another chance to drive.

Mr. Granzeier makes sure that everything is covered. He is very good at knowing the law and defending his clients. I had a dui causing death, and 3rd offense dui. I truly felt that the State of Michigan would never allow me to legally drive again. Michael Granzeier was able to change that. Now I have my license, and can legally drive again. His defense was so good that the assistant attorney general literally got flustered, and had a hard time
Mike is very knowledgeable in the area of DUI and all of its complexities. What stood out most to me about Mike was his level of professionalism and prompt response (no matter what day /time). HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Mike teaches YOU how YOU can get your license back. Its up to you TO GET THEM BACK. The S.O.S. will not give them back to your lawyer. It is up to YOU to persuade the S.O.S. to give them back. Mike shows you how to, what you must do exactly. With Mr. Granzeier NO details are left to chance.
Michael J. Granzeier, Heavy Hitter: a person whose actions and opinions strongly influence the course of events.
I hired Mike Granzeier after 2-3 other lawyers and he took on my case which was very complex with me being an out of state resident trying to get my Michigan Driving record cleared. My opinion of legal advise/help was not very good before I was introduced to Attorney Granzeier. Mike is someone who is very passionate about what he does and takes his career very serious. In my opinion there is no one better to call if you need legal representation to regain your Driving status. He is someone who is going to work diligently (even weekends) to make sure that your case gets the attention it deserves. I was referred to Mike by another attorney who explained to me that Mike is the best at what he does. This statement without a doubt proved to be true.
After being a client that thought I could handle this process alone, Mike was able to guide me thru it to full completion with professionalism and ease. I was granted my full unrestricted license back today and that would not have happened without this man's assistance. He stayed in contact with me, reassured me during any doubtful times and was extremely supportive. I never wish this experience upon anyone, but if it has to be done- I wouldn't suggest anyone aside this man. Thank you for your experience and dedication to this field!
