I got my car towed the same night I moved into miami beach. I was so pissed, that I made a court date. I didn't hire an attorney or do anything other than show up in court about 3 months after the application for a court date. The judge sided with me (and why wouldn't he, since he could clearly see the injustice), and made Tremont refund ALL of my money. Score one for the little guy. I suggest you do the same....don't let them take your hard earned money.
