What is Road to Restoration?

Road to Restoration is a free clinic to assist Michigan residents in understanding how to get their driving privileges restored.

Disclaimer

Road to Restoration is not a DUI/DWI/OWI expungement clinic and license reinstatement is not guaranteed. Reinstatement is assessed on an individual basis in accordance with state law.

Sign up to volunteer as an attorney

Pro bono attorneys are needed to provide limited-scope consultations at the clinic, which include the review of driving records, contacting the courts, and helping guide individuals through the steps they need to take to restore their licenses. Recorded training modules and in-person training the day of the clinic will be provided. Experts from the Detroit Justice Center, Michigan Department of State and Attorney General’s Office will be on site to answer questions as well.

Attorneys can volunteer using the sign-up link. It is very rewarding work! A few hours of your time can make all the difference in someone’s life.
