I have not used her personally.
I hear that many of these ticket fighters take your full money up front and if they lose they pay the ticket, and if they win they refund you half.
Please let me know.
Correct.

I recently gave in to fight a
Fire Hydrant, an Alternate Side, and a Bus Stop (got all of them in a 72 hour period... yeah, right?? )

They (The Parking Expert) charged the full $275 (to pay off the tickets) + $137, and one of those charges are supposed to be refunded when the decision comes back.

Why contemplate? Do it, nothing to lose.

Why did she charge you an additional 137?

50% of the tickets, if the tickets are disputed that's their commission, if tickets are not disputed, they'll refund the $137.

Why would they need to charge both? Sounds like a scam (interest rates are so low-what are they gaining?)
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Hmm, somebody's tiered.

They charge the full amount which goes directly to the state/city to pay off the tickets, +50% for their commission.

Calm down.

I'm sorry for not being clear enough, I said the charge for the full tickets go *directly* to the state/city, with *directly* I meant *directly* to the state/city...

And if the tickets are dismissed, the state/city refunds the full amount.

  I'm still still confused. Why is the money going straight to the city before the verdict?

You don't have to, but you have the option of doing it and then get refunded,

I did it, because it was a rental, and I didn't want Avis to hit me with any fees.

I got a NYC parking ticket over a week ago and when I go online to view the ticket it still says 'your ticket is being processed, to pay please enter the amount and click ok'

How long does it take?

Forever, however, if you respond after 30 days your ticket goes up.
Airlines sending me "We're in this together" emails.

Bruh, where were you when my suitcase weighed it 51.50 pounds?
