I retained Mr.Grazeier with hopes of reinstating my driving privileges . I spoke with other attorneys , and was told this would be a difficult case. A Breathalyzer refusal. Mr. Granzeier guided my through all necessary steps needed to retain my driving privileges for my employment and my family's needs. He was straight forward with me about my chances . He said with all I done on my end ( do to his advice ) he felt that I have a very good chance in prevailing . Make the call ! I am glad I did ! ! !

I obtained Mr. Granzeier as my attorney for Secretary of State hearings for the restoration of my driving priveleges. He was recommended to me from another friend who spoke very highly of him. I had just been sentenced for my third DUI and was looking at not having a license for a long time. I ended up using Mr. Granzeier on 3 seperate occassions over the last 3 years with the secretary of state all with successful results!! I used him for my initial hearing for restricited driving priveleges, an appeal hearing after an issue with my interlock device that caused another suspension, and then the final hearing to have my full driving priveleges reinstated. All three of these hearings resulted in my driving priveleges being reinstated.
Mr. Granzeier was very knowledgeable and very helpful through every process. Dealing with Secretary of State is a totally different ball game and a very tedious process. He definitely knows what hes doing and has a reason for being as specific as he is and covers all bases and possibilities.
I have referred a number of friends to Mr. Granzeier which all have had good experiences and results with him. I would highly recommend him as an attorney for any drivers license issues and appeals. I am very grateful for his services and help through this long and sometimes very unfair process.

I found Mr Granzeier to very knowledgable & detail oriented in the laws surrounding Mi Dui/Dwi laws. I had lost my Mi drivers licence 16 yrs ago due to 3 DWI incidents in 10 yrs. I had tried twice on my own to fallow the guidelines on the Mi Secretary of State web sight but to no avail. There are many hidden loop holes & pitfalls that Mr Granzeier was able to guide me thru. I attribute the success of getting my driving privlidges back to his detailed knowledge of the legal quagmire that is the Mi Secrerary of State. My profound thanks.

Outstanding lawyer! I am so thankful for his guidance and direction. He restored my driving privileges with the SOS. He reviewed all paperwork to the nth degree. Mock hearings to prepare me for the hearing. This man knows exactly what he is doing. If you need to get back on the road again, call this man.
HIGHLY recommend! I tried others and they don't know what they are doing....he does!
99% success rate other 600+ cases won. And now add one more
ME ME !!!!!!

I went into Mr Granzeier's office in June 2013 facing a 20 year felony. After talking with him for a few minutes I decided to retain him as my Attorney and am very thankful that I did. He was very knowledgable about the law and the charges that I had against me. Although the Police had quite a bit of evedince against me proving my guilt, Mr Granzieier somehow got the Police, the Prosecuter, and even the victim in my corner and to make a long story short he got my charge of a 20 year felony knocked down to a Misdemeanor with NO jail time. UNBELIEVABLE!!!! So here it is in October 2013, and today was my sentencing date and instead of being in jail I am here at my home writing this review. God Bless you Mr Granzieier and THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

My case was a tough case. I was denied a license after 10 years of safe, no contact with the law, restricted driving after 2 DUIs. So I decided to appeal and was referred to Michael Granzeier. The first phone call I will never forget. He put me at ease, told me they cant do that to you, your being railroaded. He also mentioned his credentials, one witch involved serving on a legislative committee concerning OUR rights with respect to the alcohol interlock device. Through the entire process he remained in constant contact. I NEVER was unable to reach him, or get a call back that day. In fact Mr. Granzeier . was usually the one calling me making sure we had everything we needed for this case. The day of the hearing, naturally I was nervous. But after reading Mr. Garnzeier's presentation , I was put at ease. He countered ever argument with well thought out rebuttals. I knew I had a winner. The hearing was very short based on a very skilled, thought out, arranged testimony on behalf of my lawyer Michael Granzeier. The other side tried to explain there position , but was immediately shut down by the judge. Full driving privileges!!! After court that day I received a call from Mr. Granzeier. Stating that he got back to his office and he had filed the necessary paper work so I would receive my paper work from the state ASAP. Justice was Served!!! I can say that Michael Granzeier is diligent professional who really does take the job of helping you very, very seriously. I've unfortunately had to deal with lawyers in the past. Never have I had one Like Mr. Granzeier. Just cant say enough!!! Thank you Michael!!

Mr. Granzeier service is outstanding. He guided and prepared me for my license hearing. Always a phone call away. Answered my every question. I never felt left in the dark during this whole process. I am extremely happy with my decision to retain Mr. Granzeier and the outcome that was reached.

From the moment I entered Mr. Granzeiers office, to the moment I exited the door of the SOS building, (license in hand), I knew I had selected the correct lawyer. Mr. Granzeier didn't try to sugarcoat the situation I had put myself in, yet he reassured me he would stand by my side and walk with me to the end result. Good or bad, I wouldn't face it alone. We would travel through the entire process together. He did guarantee, however, that he would do what he could to help me get to the end result I had hoped to accomplish. I learned in the long road ahead that he truly is a man of his word.
I always felt he was just a phone call away, and never felt alone when trying to achieve my goal. I went from being ashamed to being reassured.
Even though I knew better, I felt as though I had special attention to my case due to Mr. Granzeiers diligence, and support. Therefore I have, and will continue to express my sincere gratitude, by recommending Mr. Granzeier to others. He has honestly earned, through his determination and strong work ethic, any clients that may wisely chose to accept this extremely knowledgeable attorney.

Attorney Michael Granzeier is an awesome lawyer. He has helped me out immensely. He makes it a point to know every in and out of your case, as well as keep you informed of the process every step of the way. He knows his profession extremely well and it shows. Anybody having drivers license legal issues shouldn't hesitate to give Mr. Granzeier a call and get your life back in order. I'm sure glad I did.

I had gone over ten years without a Michigan drivers license and hired other attorney's to help. Of all I had come in contact with NONE had the depth of process like Mr. Granzeier. From start to finish Mr. Granzeier kept me MORE then prepared, was always available for questions and fair in fee. Mr. Granzeier helped me end a ten year nightmare, get my full license back and become a better person for it along the way. If you have a drivers license restoration case in the state of Michigan there is simply no other attorney I could say has a better grasp of the changing climate of the process. I can't say thank you enough.

I couldn't be happier with my decision to hire Mr. Granzeier to help with my driver's license restoration. I have lived out of state for several years now and had already unsuccessfully attempted the appeals process twice on my own in years past. I spoke with several attorney's throughout the state of Michigan prior to hiring Mr. Granzeier, and it was evident that many of them were far less knowledgable about the appeals process than he was. Some of them offered a lower price, but it seemed as if even I was more familiar with the system than were they. Ultimately, this led me to hiring Mr. Granzeier, who was able to apply specifics from my case right from our first conversation. He was completely professional throughout the process and treated me with nothing but respect. His attention to detail was impressive. He was beyond thorough and it produced the result we were looking for. I highly recommend Attorney Michael Granzeier to anyone seeking to restore their driving privileges.

Mike did a great job for me. I had a challenging case and followed his directions the best I could. He is very knowledgeable on the law and procedures. I highly recommend him and will be seeking his advice in the future as I pursue my full driving privileges.

I had the pleasure of hiring Mr. Granzeier for my license restoration case. His knowledge of the situation was unprecedented to any other attorney I interviewed. I was very pleased with his thorough follow-up of any questions that arose. I anticipated emails explaining my concerns but instead received phone calls confirming I understood the answer to my problems. Mr. Granzeier ensured I was ready for my hearing weeks before the scheduled date. He was very punctual and well deserved of his retainer. I highly recommend Mr. Granzeier for representation in a license restoration case.

Mr. Granzeier is the best Attorney experience I have ever encountered. I spoke with him on dozens of occasions about my case, almost every time I called, I spoke directly to him. He was always prompt to return my calls. I felt very informed about all of the details of my case at all times. Mr Granzeier's professionalism is the best I have ever seen. He made sure I was completely prepared for my case. He is extremely knowledgeable about any type of DUI related issues and dealing with license restoration. I would recommend Mr. Granzeier if you are searching for an attorney in ANY area of law he practices. He is organized, detailed, honest, and involved in the cases he works on. I have my license back thanks to Mr. Granzeier and would not recommend anyone else for the job.

I recently hired Mr. Granzeier represent me for a criminal case. I hired him about a month before my trial was to start. Throughout this month he had told us that there was nothing to worry about, and that everything was going to be fine. He said that he had represent hundreds of people in similar cases.
The very day before my trial Mr. Granzeier calls me and he asks me if I would be interested in taking a plea deal. I told him that I was innocent and I didn't want to take a plea deal.
On the day of the trial he tells me that the prosecutor is offering a great plea deal - one of the best he's ever had. I tell Mr. Granzeier that I don't want to accept this plea deal, and he starts begging (yes begging) me to take this deal. He sounded like a high-pressure salesman trying to sell me this plea deal. Mr. Granzeier just want me to take the plea deal so he could make money without going to trial.
So now I'm out $1600 because Mr. Granzeier didn't want to go to trial, and I had to hire another attorney. I feel that I was scammed.

I would commend you to Mr. Granzeier in your efforts to regain your driver's license following a DWI/DUI. Thorough, objetive yet undestanding and empathetic. His knowledge of the often contradictory appeals process can preclude a novice do-it-on-your-own type from making a hash of his appeal and exposing that person to further delays in license restoration. His fees were more than reasonable given the nature of the offense(s). (Consider how much you probably spent over the years with court-appointed attorneys, probation costs, fines and penalties).

Mr. Granzeier represented me in a criminal matter. He knowledgeably explained the options that were available to me and kept me apprised of changes and hurdles in my case. His efforts in preparing me for the case made the actual heating itself effortless. Highly recommended when it comes to licesne restoration.
