Ubering With Children

Uber is a livery service that has transformed the way commuters travel the city. Instead of hailing a cab the traditional way, you can now hail a cab using your smart phone. Uber provides detailed information regarding your driver, the vehicle you’ll be transported in, and approximated costs.

This convenient new way of getting around has become extremely popular, even with parents and families. 

Uber has a family sect, called UberFAMILY. Parents who opt to use UberFAMILY can expect a process just as convenient as traditional Ubering  for an additional cost. 

UberFAMILY vehicles come equip with “IMMI” car seats. According to Uber “IMMI is an industry leader when it comes to the manufacturing of straps, buckles, and LATCH hardware for many of the car seats in the US. The IMMI Go seat meets all the requirements (i.e., crash testing, labeling, etc.) set by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213.”

UberFAMILY drivers are trained one on one on how to properly install the car seats. 

According to UBER, UBERfamily regulations are based off of recommendations from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. For more information regarding UBERfamily click here

Dear friends and clients,

In furtherance of our firms culture of commitment to always act with compassion, concern and commitment to our clients, community and colleagues, we have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligations while prioritizing health, wellness and safety of all we can. 

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced changes to many lives and businesses in our communities, and around the world. We, much like our neighbors and friends, have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligation to our clients, while also prioritizing the health, wellness and safety of our employees.

Until further notice, our offices will be closed to the public to encourage social distancing and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our team is still hard at work, many from home, and you may still call, email, live chat or video conference us if you or a loved one is seeking legal assistance. As the first law firm to offer our clients secure online access to their case file more than a decade ago, we have always been believers in using technology to make life easier and information more accessible. In these present times it has been a smooth transition for us to continue to offer our clients the same seamless and thorough service that you deserve and are accustomed to.

This pandemic is unlike anything any of us have faced in our lifetimes, and while we can continue to emotionally support one another through it all, staying home and keeping your distance is vital to the health and wellness of our communities. It does not feel good to break routines, cancel events and retreat from our normal, day-to-day socializing, but let us remember that, in times of strife, prior generations were asked to go to war and we are simply being asked to stay home. Your isolation equals more lives saved, and more time for medical providers to prepare for the treatment of patients battling COVID-19.

When the dust settles, we will join together with a greater appreciation for our lives, local businesses, loved ones and health. Until then, we will continue to offer guidance from a safe distance.

Very truly yours,

Andrew G. Finkelstein and the staff of Jacoby & Meyers, LLP
