Case #18


Al had 4 alcohol/drug-related convictions and as a result, his driver’s license was revoked. Additionally, he had consumed alcohol after his last drunk driving conviction and had only attended 7 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.


I was able to secure Al’s driving privileges. For the hearing, I submitted a favorable substance abuse evaluation, negative drug screen, letters supporting Al’s sobriety, treatment records, probation discharge records, and college transcripts showing good grades. At the hearing, I argued that Al’s driver’s license should be restored because of the favorable evidence and because of significant life changes that were consistent with continued abstinence.

Bottom line

The hearing officer agreed with my arguments and reinstated Al’s driving privileges.
