Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that you got a violation notice.
What else can you tell me about your situation? What are your questions?
What are your questions about what happened?
If you're disputing that a violation occurred, the next step is to send them a written, signed statement that lays out your side of the story. If you don't respond, they'll make a decision without your input, which means they're probably going to decide against you (because they've already decided that there was a possible violation, or they wouldn't be notifying you). Your response will be sent to members of a panel who will review the entire file to determine whether you did anything wrong.
You can tell them that. Clarify that you weren't asking to be considered for any position. The best response in these situations is usually a truthful one.
I'm sorry, but this is a question and answer website. We provide information, not legal representation. That's why we're able to charge a tiny fraction of our normal hourly rates. If you need a local attorney to write the response, you can find one at www.martindale.com.
If you have any more questions about the process, I'm happy to answer them. Otherwise, customer service can close out the question for you.
That's also why I twice asked what type of help you were looking for. Because I didn't want to take up your time if you thought you were hiring a lawyer.
