Mr. Granzeier, helped get my drivers license restored on the first try! He was very professional and gave me great advice every step of the way. I will recommend him to anyone.
Even a Judge for a lawyer did not help; SoS/DLAD is not a courtroom. 'Fairness' or 'reality' doesn't exist here. Having completely changed my life, I was in a major surprise when I found myself revoked (while working with previous attorney & on restricted for > 5yrs). A two-time college graduate, with honors, who earned a position with a global company: it was obvious to others that my life had completely changed, but not obvious to SoS until I knew how to present it. Mike Granzeier knows exactly how to get in the details in a way they will matter. He provides you with a clear list of action items, ordering them based on impact/criticality. When I had questions, he promptly responded, even multiple times per day when necessary. He faithfully put in weekend & late evening hours while on a tight timeline. Mike is very detail-orientated, which is an absolute necessity with SoS! Going through my documentation, he ensured there were no errors. Innocent mistakes could have been enough to deny me, but he caught them. Mike is honest & direct. Instead of telling you that you are going to win, he offers vast amounts of examples of his prior cases. When discussing a scenario, Mike will give you a subjective opinion, but not without labeling it as such. With the amount of experience he has in DLAD, it is like opening an encyclopedia of DLAD processes & outcomes. He is the guy you want on your team; he is passionate about what he does, & has the will to win. You would think that changes that are proven through major life accomplishments would be enough, but it's not. You will need to work very hard & have someone next to you who works even harder. It took almost losing everything to find this attorney. May you find him sooner. I am happy to say that I have a full unrestricted license & will never have to see DLAD again! Getting no where with the State in years, it took merely weeks to get everything back with this attorney.
Mr. Granzeier was hired to help me appeal my Michigan Drivers License revocation appeal to the Secretary of State this spring, 2014. He assured me that if I was truthful, thorough and followed his advice to the letter we had a good chance. We succeeded. Despite several warnings of fellows in AA who have been through the appeal process not to get my hopes up, we won on the first appeal. Throughout the process Mr. Granzeier was very concise and made sure all of my documentation was exactly as it should be for this hearing. He was uncompromising , very informative and shared his experience with me to great effect. He took the time to make sure I was clear on all manners of speaking before the hearing. He provided excellent support during the hearing when I needed it. He kept in contact with me afterwards and has provided excellent followup information for my time under restricted driving privileges. I will certainly be calling him again when it is time to appeal for an unrestricted license.
Michael Granzeier is one of the best lawyers that I have ever had to work with. He was extremely thorough with my case and was available to talk/discuss my case at any hours of the day. My license was revoked for a year and Michael was able to get my license back for me and for that I will be forever grateful to him. I plan on using Michael in the future and I would recommend him to everyone/anyone that has a revoked license.
Thank you again Mike for your hard work and great knowledge. Mike is personable, professional and always kept me informed and well guided. Bottom line, he wins.
Mike Granzeier is an excellent lawyer. He was recommended by a friend, a lawyer himself who told me he would get the job done and he did. He delivered what he stated keeping me informed at all times. No hidden fees and straight forward. He made me comfortable at all times. Always responding in a timely manner. I was told by the judge in court that he had never seen a better written brief. I have recommended him to several friends and co-workers. I never regretted writing him a check. He is professional and excellent to work with. I highly recommended his services.
Atty. Granzeier was very articulate, thorough and honest. He worked very hard for me and made himself accessible. He was extremely prepared to go to hearings/court and presented a strong case. With his help, a bad situation can be much easier.
Michael is an excellent attorney that is very knowledgeable in his field of law. Michael does an excellent job preparing his clients for their hearing. I highly recommend Michael to represent you.
Great Attorney... Highly Recommended...
If u need to get your drivers licence back, this is who you want to call.!
He did what he said he could do which is hard to find. He was very knowledgeable and precise with handling my case. He took the time to make sure everything was perfect before sending anything in to the S.O.S. so there would be no reason to deny me. Now I can get my full licence back.
Mike Granzeier was meticulously involved in my case, reading every related detail, transcript, case law in order to put up the strongest case / defense for me.
I’ve had experience with other lawyers that otherwise seemed to be “too busy” or preoccupied with something else which prevented them from really digging into my case.
Mike’s council is experienced and polished; a steady and confident hand in otherwise uneasy and precarious circumstances.
If you’re looking for the least expensive lawyer in this area of law, Mike is probably not the attorney for you.
However, if you really want the best possible defense for your particular circumstance (which I do vigorously recommend), than you are well served to contract the legal council of Michael J. Granzeier.
