How I Restore Licenses

We will closely collaborate on your case. I place great emphasis on building a strong and compelling evidence base. To achieve this, I will diligently review the evidence in your case and address the following key questions:

  • Is the evidence in your favor? 
  • Does the evidence present a consistent and coherent narrative?
  • Does the evidence effectively address the concerns that the Hearing Officer is likely to have?
  • Are there any weaknesses in the evidence, and if so, how can we overcome them?

Paying meticulous attention to the details is of utmost importance. It helps me present your case in a “clear and convincing” manner.

A comprehensive approach to driver’s license restoration cases:

An Initial Interview

We gather information about past substance use, sobriety length, treatment history, AA attendance, and life changes since becoming sober. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and address concerns.


Action Plan

Create a detailed list of tasks and requirements before filing the case. We stay organized and focused on achieving a successful outcome.


Michigan requires 3 to 6 letters from individuals who can attest to your sobriety. We obtain 5 to 6 solid, strong, and compelling letters. We provide an outline to guide your friends and family in addressing key points.

Drug Screen

We review the drug screen results for accuracy and ensure they are negative.

Substance Use Evaluation

We obtain an evaluation from a state-licensed substance abuse counselor. Then, we review the evaluation’s impact on your case.

Filing Your Case

Complete all necessary documents and promptly file the case with the Secretary of State

Preparing You for the Hearing

I assist in preparing for the mandatory hearing.

Representing You at the Hearing

I represent you at the hearing and guide you through the process of testifying.

There are no shortcuts in this process. I believe in doing things right, and my approach has stood the test of time and delivered positive outcomes for my clients. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the license restoration process take?

The restoration process duration can vary based on individual cases and factors such as documentation, scheduling of hearings, and the specific requirements of the state. It’s important to know that the process can take many months — often half a year, depending on the specifications of the case.

How likely is it that I will get my license back?

The likelihood of having your license restored depends on several factors, including the specific details of your case, your compliance with state requirements, and the presentation of compelling evidence during the restoration process. While no outcome can be guaranteed, working with an experienced attorney in license restoration can significantly increase your chances of success. My 95% success rate attests to that.

Do I need an attorney for license restoration?

While it is possible to go through the license restoration process without an attorney, it is highly recommended to seek professional legal assistance. An experienced attorney in license restoration can navigate complex legal requirements, ensure all necessary documentation is gathered, provide guidance during the hearing process, and increase the chances of a successful outcome.

Mark Langschied represented me as my lawyer in a driver’s license restoration hearing and was successful in getting my license restored, despite the fact that I had been denied twice before and had a history of five driving offenses and many relapses…


I just wanted to thank you for representing me. There is no way I would have won my case without you as my attorney. I moved out to Arizona 15 years ago and over the last 10 years tried to appeal to get my license reinstated three times and was denied all three times. After having five DUIs, I thought I’d never get it back. After our first phone conversation, not only was he friendly but I trusted him, he really cared about my case… his knowledge and expertise about the whole process, totally prepared me for the hearing – as a result – I won.


He laid out all the possible paths… There were a lot of hurdles to get over in my case… However, after a long discussion, we found a way around them and it worked! His flexibility, dedication to his clients and excellent communication make him one of the best. . .and that kind of honesty is rare and exactly what I was looking for in an attorney. I don’t think I could have done it without his straightforward professionalism and knowledge. If you want someone who is going to tell you what you need to hear, and not someone who tells you what you want to hear, Mark Langschied is the attorney you need.
