I was extremely satisfied with the representation Mr. Granzeier provided for me. I had a unique case that, on paper, appeared to be a challenge to any top attorney. Mr. Granzeier proved to be up to the challenge.
I was charged with 3 DUI offenses between 2001 and 2009. After serving a 5 year driver's license revocation, I was granted a restricted driver's license with an interlock device. During this period, I had 6 start up failures ( 2 minor violations) within the one year timeframe between possible DLAD Hearings. These were false positives caused by my prescription inhaler. Due to these 2 violations, my time frame was extended by 6 months before I could apply for another DLAD hearing. I also did not provide another breath sample within 5 minutes after the initial failures due to the fact that I was under the impression that another invalid sample would occur from the inhaler. The SOS requires a follow-up breath sample within 5 minutes after any reading in excess of .025 (start up violation). PBT tests are highly advised upon after any interlock violation to prove that the driver had not been drinking. I was unable to obtain PBT tests on each occasion as I was stranded without any means of transportation.
For my second DLAD hearing, in which I could possibly obtain an Operator's License, I represented myself. I submitted all necessary documentation required for a hearing. Unfortunately, my character letters and Substance Use Evaluation were erroneous according to the SOS. This is highly looked down upon by the Hearing Officer's and typically ends in a denied appeal. My 2 minor violations, coupled with incorrect documentation and a Hearing Officer who is known for denying petitioners, resulted in just that. My restricted license was re-revoked. I had no driving privileges and would have to wait a year before I was eligible for yet another DLAD hearing. (If i could do it all over again, I would have retained Mr. Granzeier's services for this hearing).
I was frustrated and disappointed in the SOS's judgement and was determined to find the best legal representation possible to prove my case and get me back on the road quickly. I was then lucky enough to hear of Mr. Granzeier through this website. I spoke with him over the phone on multiple occasions during the week after I received my denied notice in the mail. I had also spoken to multiple other "top" Driver's License Restoration attorneys in the state and most of them told me my appeal was fruitless. I decided to retain Mr. Granzeier after hearing his extensive knowledge, attention to detail, and overall care he showed with regard to the laws and my case. Prior to and after retaining Mr. Granzeier, he was always readily available to discuss my case, give me advice, and put my mind to ease.
We took the case to Oakland County Circuit Court and I was granted my previous restricted license back. Driver's License Restoration cases are hardly ever overturned in Circuit Courts, especially in Oakland County. I believe retaining Mr. Granzeier was one of the best choices I have ever made. I would recommend him to anyone who is ever involved in Drunk Driving or Driver's License Restoration cases. He is by far one of the best, if not the best, Drunk Driving and Driver's Restoration attorney's in the state of Michigan.

I have used Mike Granzeier with all my DUI cases and now my license restoration hearing. He is extremely thorough and explains all the details every step of the way. He makes himself very accessible all hours of the day and is willing to take the time to answer any questions you may have. He cares about his cases and the outcome of them. If you ever need a lawyer for a DUI or License Restoration Case I would highly recommend him. Thank you Mike

My case was pretty unique. I had 2 DUI's on my record from 1999 and 2001 in the state of Michigan. I received multiple driving on suspended as well trying to maintain a job. I ended up moving to California in 2005 and tried to do an out of state hearing myself in 2009. I was denied and finally in 2015 contacted Michael. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We set up a plan and information I would need to gather. He was with me every step of the way. A few months later after he reviewed my paperwork we sent it to the state for review. On the first try I was granted my full license. There would've been no way I would've known the ins and outs of the review and how to structure my appeal if it were not for Michael. I give the highest recommendation I can give regarding his services. If you're making a decision between lawyers go with Micheal Granzeier! Thank you so much Michael!

Michael Granzeier was diligent in his work. He wasted no time after I had called him for help. He gave me a truthful and realistic consultation on the ways in which my case could go. He was very professional in court and carried himself well. We won in court and got my license back after I had been denied by Secretary of State. He not only works hard, but he cares for his clients. I would hire him again if I needed to and will be calling him for any legal advice from now on.

Michael Granzeier was one of the best lawyers I could have found to help me get my license back. I tried the first time by myself thinking because I did everything right followed all the rules I would have no trouble getting it back. I was wrong. going at it a second time Mr. Granzeier found out there the tiniest things in my first attempt stop me. Things I would never have thought of that could effect the whole hearing. The second time around he made sure every I was dotted and T was crossed. He is very patient and never made me feel like I was not going to achieve my goal. And all I can say to him is thank you.

Attorney Michael Granzeier was an excellent, knowledegeable attorney. He made sure all of my paperwork was precise. He kept me informed throughout this stressful process. My license was revoked in 2010. After the hearing in 2016, thanks to Mike, I have my restricted driver's license with the interlocking system . I highly recommend him for anyone looking to get their driver's license restored.

When I hired Mr. Granzeier he was a excellent attorney, I would recommend him if you want your drivers license reinstated. He told me he set up the perfect case for me, all of the evidence was correct as it should be and he makes sure you are ready for the hearing before the hearing date. Even though I went up there and everything was correct which is the letters, medical statement, request for hearing packet, AA slips, etc. the hearing officer found an excuse to deny me. I was going for my restricted drivers license and I didn't get it. So after he denied me we took this case to the Circuit Court, and we found a different attorney to represent me near my area. A few months later, had another Court hearing and the Judge was so respectful and caring she offered me my full driving privilege's. After that I have no worries now and most of all I don't have to rely on anyone to drive me to places anymore.
