Summons for refusing to pay taxi fare

    I hailed a MyTaxi to go to work in the morning and halfway through the journey I asked the driver to change course slightly. He then stopped the car and told me to get out. I did so and then he jumped out of the cab and grabbed me by the lapels shouting at me to pay the fare that had accrued. I refused and called the Guards.
    The Guards arrived 45 minutes later and I made a complaint for assault against the driver and I still refused to pay after the Guard asked me to pay.

    I recently received a summons to appear to the Criminal Court for being 'in contravention of Article 56 of the Road Traffic (Public Service Vehicles) Regulations, 1963
    Contrary to Section 82 of the Road Traffic Act, 1961 (as mended by Section 7 of the Dublin Transport Authority (Dissolution) Act 1967 provides the offence. Section 102 of the Road Traffic Act, 1961 (as amended by Section 18 of the Road Traffic Act, 2006) provides the penalty.'

    Does anyone know a good solicitor who could help me with this?
