Highly Professional
He helped me with a speeding ticket and got it reduced from 6 points to 2 points. The most interesting part of his professionalism is that the experience is like shopping online. Easy and straightforward. Based on my experience with Attorneys, he is one of the best I've met.

Got the Job done right
Mr Pressman kept me up to date on the process and was professional. His office got in touch with me after a resolution and made sure I was completely taken care of.

Client
From the very beginning, Arthur educated me to the legal process and reviewed all expectations. He was committed to protecting my rights and deliver the most favorable outcome. I was recently charged with my second DWI in 5 years and third within 20 years. This automatically becomes a Felony charge that would go to court with a jury trial. Arthur was able to negotiate a plea deal that reduced the criminal offense from a Felony to a Misdemeanor. That, in itself. was a huge relief and victory. No jury trial, No jail time and No probation. Received a Conditional Discharge with Minimal Fines. The very best results possible. The key to his success, is attributed to the close relationships and respect he has developed over the years, at all levels of the judicial system as well as the courtroom. He is a Best-In-Class Attorney and I am extremely grateful for the outcome he delivered on my behalf. Thank you Arthur!

Aggravated DWI Charge
Got arrested for DWI in July of 2020. Being my first arrest, I did not have any idea on what to expect. I retained Mr Pressman, and through his expertise, was guided through the process from start to finish in a highly professional manner. In addition, I could not have asked for a better outcome in my case. I highly recommend Mr Pressman for your legal defense needs.

Great experience
My son got a speeding ticket near Buffalo on his way home from school. I received a referral for another attorney in Buffalo. After contacting him, he said that he could get my son's ticket reduced to a 2 point moving violation. I decided to do some research and found Mr. Pressman. He also did not promise a 0 point charge but told me that he would try. After reading some of the excellent reviews on line, I decided to hire Mr. Pressman. We live in Chicago and needed help. He not only got my son's ticket reduced to a parking ticket but also charged me less than what the other lawyer was going to charge me. He also did this at the last minute since my son failed to let me know about the court filing deadline until the last minute. I appreciate the help Mr. Pressman provided and would recommend him highly.

Speeding Ticket on Vacation
I received a speeding ticket in Buffalo while on vacation in August. I then looked up a lawyer to represent me in Buffalo for the ticket. Called the first lawyer I came across on google which happen to be Mr. Pressman. He advised me of what his service would entail and the cost. Mr. Pressman took care of EVERYTHING for me. I didn't have to handle anything with the court system. I simply paid him, then a few weeks later received the "bill" for the ticket which I then paid. Mr. Pressman made this ticket very simple and I did NOT receive any points on my license. Would refer to anyone in Buffalo asking for a traffic ticket lawyer.

Did what was promised
Was issued a ticket for right on red during a time when it was prohibited. Totally my fault as there were signs posted stating times allowed/prohibited. Arthur told me exactly what I needed to do and what he would do and my fine was reduced to a non criminal traffic infraction and no points on my license. I was facing 2 points so this was money very well spent.

Traffic ticket
I received a traffic ticket on July 2, 2019. I contacted MR. Pressman explained my situation to him; I was told that I would not get points on my license and no drivers school. The fine would be up to the court. He had me send a copy of the ticket along with his payment, which can be done on line; you never have to go to court that's all covered by him. I received no points, on my license and no driver's school. The fine was only 100 dollars. I highly recommend his services.

Arthur Pressman is a true professional lawyer!
I had several points on my license which ended up being suspended and I needed to go to college and work so I contact Mr. Pressman and he was extremely helpful with what the plans was to get my points reduced. He was always available when I had a question. Very professional and his follow up was detailed with a letter and any emails that I needed to make sure that I could get my driver's license reinstated. Thank you Mr. Pressman!!!!

Top Notch
Worked a very long overnight nursing shift and was driving through a town notorious for speed traps. I missed the 40 mph, to 30 mph, to 20 mph--all which change in the space of 2 miles. This was my second speeding ticket within 6 months (Mr. Pressman was able to negotiate my first ticket as well--no points, no fine, no school). Immediately after the stop, I called Mr. Pressman, who assured me that he would do all he could to get the best possible outcome. Once again, with his skill and expertise, he was able to plea my speeding ticket (34 in a 20 zone) to a parking ticket with no points, no fine and no traffic school. Before calling him I was so discouraged with myself and the situation. If you find yourself in a similar situation, don't think twice about calling Arthur Pressman. The fee he charges is very reasonable in light of the money/time/hassle involved in going to court, paying the fine, negotiating with the prosecutor to plea down sign up for driving school, paying for driving school, GOING to driving school (6 hours sometimes) and possibly still having a point or two on your license. He is very matter of fact about taking care of clients but don't let that discourage you. He is all business. He will take your information, you may have to fax/mail documents and follow up to ensure that he has everything he needs to deal with your situation. Also be aware that he will probably not contact you until the matter is resolved, but don't let this put you off. He WILL deal with the situation and likely--based on the mildness or severity of your legal matter--he WILL get you the best possible outcome.

Speeding Ticket Consultation
I am extremely satisfied with the service and highly recommend him for any speeding tickets. He was able to negotiate mine to a non-criminal traffic infraction without getting any point added to my license.

I highly recommend Arthur Pressman
I got a speeding ticket in the town of Tonawanda. Because of existing points on my license I was hoping to reduce this to a 2 point violation. I hired Arthur Pressman and he was able to get the speeding charge reduced to a parking violation with zero points. The fine was much lower than I expected, and no driving school. Arthur Pressman saved the day. I highly recommend Arthur Pressman for any of your legal needs no matter how minor you think they may be. Don't handle it yourself.
