WHAT MAKES A MICHIGAN LICENSE RESTORATION TESTIMONIAL LETTER GOOD

Testimonial letters are "evidence" that are presented to the hearing officer for his review and consideration. They get submitted along with the petition and other documentation well in advance of the hearing.

After years of doing license restoration hearings i have "modified" my procedure for preparation. Because everything is on a time line (certain documentation have expiration dates) it is crucial to have everything completed in a timely manner so as not to have expired "proofs" at the time of filing. To that end i immediately generate a request of my client to compile five testimonial letters from his friends and family.

These "letters" are not just, what i like to refer as "good guy"  letters. Testimonial letters echo all the testimony that the petitioner puts on the record in person at the hearing. They address specific elements of proof that are required.

And i certainly do not leave it to chance that the client knows what needs to be included.

Along with my request for the testimonial letters i include a list of the issues which need be included. They need only one sentence referencing each issue (obviously more if appropriate and the author feels so inclined or as is necessary). If the writer has some special insights or know of some things which might influence the hearing officer in a positive way then by all means include it after all the "requirements" are met.

So many people launch right into how bad the petitioner needs his license and how he/she has paid their debt to society. Then there are those who like to talk about how good of a employee the petitioner is or what a lovely disposition he/she has. While all this type of information is fine and good, the hearing officer is looking for specific information, and, if we can give it to them without them having to sift through fluff, all the better for you.

DAAD hearing officers schedule these hearings every half hour, the less time of theirs we take the happier they are which translates into a better outcome for you hopefully.

Win your petition for driving privileges in Michigan or any state you live in by perfecting your testimonial letters. Don't leave anything to chance, call Attorney Martin Lievois in Troy at 248-419-1566 or in Flint at 810-250-4550.
