Client Reviews

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
