Getting arrested and taken to jail on suspicion of DUI or other traffic infractions can be a frightening experience.

Receiving legal advice quickly in such situations is critical, says Bellingham-based lawyer Ziad Youssef, owner/operator of MyTrafficMan. A Washington pioneer in using technology to improve access to legal care, Youssef has seen hundreds of people sign up for his company’s free online service,

If you’re a member and you’re arrested and taken to a local jail, you’ll receive a free call from a lawyer and your emergency contacts will be notified. “They say you can make one phone call, but sometimes that can take hours,” Youssef says.

The timing of the free incoming call can vary depending upon the facility, he says, “but even if we can’t call you, we’re alerting your contacts. The wheels get turning right away because you signed up for the service.”
