I have spent the last five years defending District taxicab drivers and Uber drivers against harassment and abuse in the form of meritless Notices of Infraction, traffic tickets, and consumer complaints, that are issued and pursued by overly aggressive hack inspectors, MPD (Metropolitan Police Department) officers, Department of Public Works (DPW) parking enforcement, and the Department of For-Hire Vehicles (formerly, D.C. Taxicab Commission). These alleged infractions are very serious, as they can lead to expensive fines, points on your license, and the loss of the privilege to operate your Taxi or Uber in the District.
I encourage all individuals operating vehicles For-Hire to retain legal counsel whenever facing a Notice of Infraction, traffic ticket or consumer complaint before the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) or OAH (Office of Administrative Hearings), and when responding to letters of violation from the Department of Vehicles For-Hire. Do not make any admissions or pay any fines without first consulting with legal counsel. Do not go to any administrative hearing alone.
Come in for a consultation, let’s discuss your case.
