Well if you're a frequent listener ever and her parents family of stations you may have heard the phrase your ticket to justice. And with a phrase comes I'm very competent attorney who is gonna help Leo at any. Traffic in DW I issues you may encounter. It out for the grace a guy and I know there are times and I now I could've been pulled over and it's nice to know that there's somebody. Like Arthur Pressman who we can call at a moment's an artist who can help us and Arthur has come in today driven and I hope that any issues good morning Arthur Pressman. The morning Brenda thank you grant me and I appreciate the intro my pleasure my pleasure I've listened to your commercials on our sister stations Arthur and you know what a unique way to get the word out about what you do and there are so many people who I think have been affected by everything we're being pulled over by. An officer or trooper to somebody who was probably drinking and should not have been driving what you say is the Balkans your practice there. I would say currently about half of my practice is devoted to the defense as individuals we're charged with traffic tickets Santa TW I. And the other half is devoted to traditional criminal defense or can be anywhere from shoplifting to a robbery to. And insults so it's pretty balanced. Practice. Are people surprised to hear that there is a practice it focuses on traffic laws and violations. I think you're probably correct most lawyers. To have niches but I would say I am probably one of the only ones and buff maybe the only one who really devotes most has practiced two. If you lie and traffic defense later if my colleagues in the legal profession as well. That they I wish they had thought of as well. You know it's it's a wonderful man attendance certainly competitive marketplace out there there are a lot of attorneys it seems that whether it's the folks who just hang a shingle to their big. You know long established venerable firms in town I'm so I think you identify an anti Israeli Erica kudos to you. Yeah I think you know the practice a lot has evolved over the years Maria fourth generation lawyer in my father's side and I think that's black and it was probably about. That's entity attorney. And my father was a general practitioner as a father was a general practitioner as well. But nowadays that the practice the laws really. Focusing more on niches I think we all kind of all pay a specialty or of a practice focused so. A lot of lawyers may trying to either be allies are criminal on and that have a lot of experience and it's. I would recommend that in your listeners who would really seek whether it's me or any other turning it really focuses her practice on a specific area. Because the laws are so complex nowadays and your exposure to certain risks and penalties or have changed over the years that you really have to be upon all the current. Legislation now the current laws sleaze that you can provide the best. Possible defense and representational your client. You know when it comes through traffic ticket or terror act hit a few over the years using for speeding and I admit to an avalanche for an actor really wants myself and I'm driving. I'm pretty you know if you get a ticket you get pulled over and ruined your day but beyond me at White House would you. Tell people would you tell people to go to school to tell people try to plead it down what are some of the basic tips if one has to be pulled off. Well you know the the basis of my tag line and my spots when ever keys. Things that we try and let people know by just don't mail your ticket and I think everyone's initial knee jerk responses from the get a ticket is before throwing it in their glove box. Is to just when they get it out of there just a mallet and and can find from the court. I don't think most people realize what the consequences that you are associated with getting a ticket you get points. Insurance can possibly go up. And depending on your driving history you can accumulate too many points in a certain period of time and you run the risk of losing your licensee for was to drive for. Could be up to a lifetime and one of the things that we try and explain to people is that India's. Institute of the last five years new policies with a look at it you're driving history now 25 years. And even things that you do when you're 1718 years old can have an impact when your in your thirties and you're trip ability to drive and continued ability to drive. So the biggest piece of devices that I would offer anyone as when you get a ticket don't mallet and plead not guilty contact an attorney like me who's who focuses her practice on defending people. And you'll get a much better result and deal. To be much more satisfied and you'll be stressed out there and worried about. Having to go to court evidently finds owner driving schools cool things like that. I had no idea that that DMV laws he changed in that they can actually traced back to issue say when your teenager maybe want to Wear red lighter get a stupid thing. We've all done things I can't especially in our youth. How how did that come about. Well I think in 20122013. They started as I said looking back 25 years with the doing is they're looking at certain types of traffic infractions and and criminal convictions that are com. I'm driving related so if you have had multiple prior to have you lies. Even twenty years ago and you get a third one now in it involves a revocation your license. He can trigger an additional five years. Revocation of your license and toppling every yet and current one. And some instances you have four or more you can have a lifetime suspension or driving privileges. And besides didn't realize some of the other which team he considers incidences. Our speeding tickets that you were convicted of involved speeding over twenty miles an hour over the speed limit reckless driving talking on your cellphone. So just I've had clients who. Get a cellphone ticket. Mallon and plead guilty. And they get a letter or two weeks later from being me saying we're suspending your license for six months and then what they'll do is still call the attorney we'll call me. And all I have to do his title triangle back to the court that they just plead guilty on by mail which is I advise is not the right thing to do. Have them reopen the case Havoc on front of the judge and ask them to rescind or revoke the plea by mail since they were represented by a lawyer. And then negotiate with the prosecutor from the start. To get this six point speeding ticket with a cellphone ticket reduced to no points and doesn't have any effect. I'm their driving history and actually team dual lens and a new letter when we get the result that I usually get apples and a new letter. Saying he revocation is rescinded and yet wonderful group which is. This is really. Interesting news it's a real education. Is there were talking a western New York's traffic in DWI attorney Arthur Pressman who is our offices and main street in downtown buffalo. Your ticket to justice is now just ask slogan I mean this really can help people avoid so many problems potentially down the line. Absolutely. Again people need to be realized that. There are consequences to either getting traffic ticket or do you have Eli and you know nowadays and they unlike years ago. A lot of people know. And their history are probably don't drink and drive and god and got stops in the police were innocent mother away. And nowadays. That's a much more stronger and stricter enforcement. And so anyone whoever gets a DW liars pulled over for a alcohol related offense really need say a Korea qualified and competent attorney who focuses her practice on DW on. Remember in Arthur when I was learning how to drive and then driving curing teens in an early adulthood. He'd worry about drunk drivers and maybe people who are now paying attention than how it. Cellphones are so prevalent and everybody seems to be texting your email to your phone or. How think about it impact his dad had just a whole cellphone phenomena on your practice over the years. Well I think. You see a lot more cellphone ticket. Infractions at the U that the police are giving out and and also a lot of accidents are caused by you know distracted driving and she's been cellphone. Or people. You know even and doing her face time on herself on him in the way there a laws are written now. It not only covers taxing on your cellphone but also call it also covers. Using a hand held electronic device. So you could be listening to music to be face timing can be watching them believe it or not people watch movies scene there are driving so it covers more than just texting or talking on yourself on in the the penalties are all the same so. I've seen an increase with people getting an accident senses there it's a result of them being distracted by using their electronic devices. And again it's it's. Getting a cellphone ticket using electronic control devices five points on your licenses more than if you're going twenty miles an hour over the speed and mused we have to really. Can hold an attorney or resign on. She missed firework you said you come from a long list of attorneys are currently have a line your DNA. But in this particular niche practice that you have Arthur do you try differently because of it because you deal with this day in and day out how it affected your driving. Well I I personally you know why don't drink a lot on and on driving immunized I usually tell my friends and I tell clients F Nolan meet with them India realized usually from man at least average weight and height. Two drinks over the course of however you're going to be outages police say if I mean women it's a different story because attended the ability and the way less than a man. And the of this ordeal on their system on fest because of their weight so I've had plenty of women and you realize who lomb. Have one drink one and have drinks and if it's. If it's heavy pour a strong pour from bartender for themselves. I've had many clients who are above the legal limit her female with one and ethnic strengths. I'll be well I think it would be a big DI just the course aligns very candid dismissive. You know if you fury issues especially I guess so this year if you are a woman and you don't wail on you have to mix drinks and an hour. You can have a problem because in New York State well people don't realize is that. Everyone is familiar with point zero waking illegal for driving law intoxicated. And New York City we do have a a lesser charge call drive on pared by alcohol. And that is a point 06 or point 07 blood alcohol and we just think about what you need to get to be a point 08. And it's even less to get to be a point zero sixes doesn't take very much for anyone to have two or three drinks in a short period of time be a point 06. Right it's up quickly for share. When somebody is pulled over what what is the protocol I should never give an officer or her time I assume is pretty basic. Yeah I think that goes along way to smoothing things out on the road and if you get pulled over for DW I mean. What people don't realizes that more than just being polite and cooperative you do have certain rights that you can exercise when you get a DW life. You don't have to take those roadside field sobriety tests that they for real people are aware of that muscular familiar with effect even though refused a breathalyzer test deck at the station. But you do have the right to refuse any of those roadside tests where they had yes in the alphabet or walk a straight line or put your finger to her nose. So he can refuse those tests you don't have to making admissions are. So are confessions about how much he had a drink. You can just say you know give me your name address phone number. And in the council determined based on some other physical observations of your observations of your drive whether or not they have. Probable cause or enough no reasonable cost has to detain you and conduct an investigation but. You need to be polite and and and you don't need to be belligerent but you can certainly be cooperative and refuse to take. Those roadside tests as well some protest at the station. Our penalties refusing a protest that at the station. But every case is unique and whether it's the right thing to do or die and then that's when I get calls an overnight from people whether they should be taking him protester and a. In that happens frequently mentioned have been done on stringing him in the morning. On the weekends I get a lot more calls in the middle of the night from people whether they should take a breath test and I and it's really. It's not collateral anymore it was a really it's a real gray area on the depends on. You're driving History Channel prior to either your life depends on what jurisdiction or in what court here and and also the pendulum is an action or not and oftentimes though I will speak to the officers who made the arrest. And they can be very helpful such if you were cooperative with them and letting me know what and how they assess whether someone is in tax catered or not. When it comes to. The whole idea. Hoover and lift now finally being in the buffalo area is it something good in your humor do you think that they asked. I give any views on it because I think it's he wouldn't take your business. Well I mean it must listen you know we don't have a keynote none of the lawyers it's too and I do have to keep drinking and driving it's dangerous and chorus that anybody and you can seriously hurt yourself for someone else so you know using third party or ride sharing certainly. Helps. With. Preventing them from happening. So admitted I think in any any area that has over let the thing it doesn't affect our business a little bit. And it's just you know and nature are business certain things a certain laws impact those things it's. Talent and gift of hope that the over that drivers are being responsible obviously. Yeah you would think they would be in news hope actually before we close at her got to ask you a better now. How he got started and along the home Miami Miami Vice years and just pick if you can summarize it for hours because I don't think people would necessarily think that. This is talking about Anderson here's some great stories about your years and nine and the self. EL I I I went to undergraduate appear in New York State spring break I was done enough for a lottery for spring break my senior I knew I was going to be going to law school and I knew someone applying to university Miami. And went to law school there and it happened in the in the early in an eighty's when I was in law school there and it was at this time of Miami Vice is being filmed while I was there actually and it was also at the time of well we called on the sound of the cocaine cowboys in the when I was in law school only got a lot slower for some very high profile. Criminal defense transit that a lot of drug worked down there and so we have lots of stories and lots of interest and clients. During the eighties in Miami. How he could write a book and then I then I'm did you run into anybody is that say hello to my little friends think he's happy after a. Well I can say this there were times along we where it does not talk on our phones are phones there were bugs and we would have conversations with clients in the outdoors always. So I was in Jerry's it was very different. Yes what a way to start your career children how I mean even in the buffalo area now have him back here since 1988.

Our success or the success just pizza is in the bill and how we do it verses out pressing it. East and stretch and we make everything else sliced pepperoni which is apologies we use fresh US TA.
