Many clients who call me on the phone ask if we have a high success rate at getting people back their license on the first try. The answer is, I personally believe that we are unmatched by other attorneys at our success rate in the first round of the hearings. By that I mean that we obtain a restricted drivers permit or full reinstatement for our clients at our first hearing with that client.
Does this mean that we have a 100% success rate? Absolutely not. In fact, I just received a denial order for a client that I took to a hearing back in April. I hate to lose. What I can say to my clients who get denied on their first try, which has only happened four times in the past eight years, is that we typically only have a very few minor points to correct at our second hearing. Typically, my clients understand what went wrong and we also meet several times on how to correct the problem at the next hearing. I have not had a single client in the past eight years who has not obtained a restricted driving permit or full reinstatement at their second hearing with us. I would put our success rate at the first hearing with our clients anywhere between 95 and 98%.
