        Highly recommended Arthur pressman. I don’t live in Buffalo New York but while visiting my family there from Florida. I got pulled over while driving on a, suspended license in Florida. They arrested me and gave me a court date to appear in court and due to me living out of state I just could not afford to go back and forth to buffalo from Florida so that’s when I hired Arthur Pressman. He made sure to handle everything for me and kept me informed with what was going on. I received no points no penalties and the case was dropped. Thank you Arthur pressman your the best. Would definitely recommend you to family and friends.

        I was advised by a mutual acquaintance to contact Mr. Pressman following my DWI that I received on December 28, 2015. This was the best advice that I could have been given. He was available immediately to speak with. I was put at ease after speaking with him. It was my first DWI and I had no idea what to expect. It was an isolated case of making a very foolish decision to drive. I had so much anxiety and fear of the unknown. Throughout my whole case Mr. Pressman was very reassuring and kept a positive attitude about what my outcome was going to be. He was available several times when I had random questions and never made me feel like an inconvenience. He was right! My case ended up being reduced to a violation from a misdemeanor and now I can finally begin to have my life back to normal. It was a hard lesson to learn but with the right attorney by your side the transition will be easier.

        Arthur Pressman is who you want representing you in court. My son was pulled over and charged with 3 felonies and several misdemeanors. It was a terrible time, with my son arrested and taken to the holding center. I contacted Mr. Pressmant, and it wasn’t long before the felonies were dropped as were some of the misdemeanors. My son is now getting the help he needs. Mr. Pressman is highly respected in the court system. I am very thankful for what he was able to do. We felt like we were living a nightmare but things turned around and got better because of him. He is very professional but also a genuine nice person . I highly recommend him.

        Traffic Violations for Driving Without Insurance in New York State

        Attorney Arthur Pressman defends your right to drive

        New York law requires that every vehicle driven on a public road must carry liability insurance. As the insured, you must be able to provide confirmation of coverage. If you fail to comply, you run the risk of being ticketed or arrested and your vehicle being impounded by the police. In addition, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may suspend your registration, requiring you to turn in your license plate. At the office of Arthur L. Pressman, Attorney at Law, we have more than 30 years of experience aggressively defending New Yorkers in all areas of traffic law. If you have been stopped and caught driving without insurance, you could face serious penalties.

        New York auto insurance requirements

        • $25,000 bodily liability maximum for one person injured in an accident
        • $50,000 bodily injury liability maximum per incident
        • $10,000 property damage liability maximum for one accident

Driving without the minimum insurance in NY is a criminal offense carrying the following serious consequences:

        Arthur L. Pressman can prepare a solid defense to help overcome the harsh penalties of not meeting the minimum insurance requirements.

        Liability of driving without insurance if you allow others to drive your uninsured vehicle

        Letting someone borrow your vehicle is a common occurrence. However, know that if you do, you assume liability for that person. If you do not have the required insurance and the person is in an accident, you may be held liable.

        New York law states that vehicle owners are liable whether they drive their vehicle or allow others to drive. The penalty is loss of your driver license for at least one year ― the same penalty if you were the one who actually had the accident while uninsured. In addition, you may need to pay in full many other fines, fees and costs, often as high as $1,500, prior to applying for a new license.
