Kise Comments on UPL Case Against Ticket-Fighting App

15 June 2018 Law360 News
Partner Christopher Kise was quoted in a Law360 article, “Ticket-Fighting App Tells Fla. Justices It’s Not Practicing Law,” about the Florida Bar’s motion for summary judgment in its unlicensed practice of law claim against TIKD Services LLC, which runs a website and mobile app that connects motorists contesting traffic tickets with lawyers willing to represent them.

Kise, who represents TIKD in the case, said the bar continues to present arguments that are devoid of any evidence. “TIKD facilitates access, it does not provide any legal services,” he said.

He also said that while the bar talks up access-to-justice issues, it appears to exhibit more “protectionist tendencies” when innovative technology facilitates such access in a convenient and cost-effective manner.
