Preparing for Court

Court is a scary proposition for anyone. If you are ready to go to court, your attorney may or may not have given you any suggestions for how to behave in court.

As an agency licensed private investigator for over twenty years, I can tell you that people always hurt their cases by talking took much.  It is always better to err on the side of silence.  Answer only the questions you are asked and try to do so with a short “yes” or “no.”  If you are asked for more details, by the attorney or judge, answer with a least amount of verbiage as possible.  Short concise direct answers avoid confusion and add clarity.  If you don’t remember something a simple “I don’t recall” is much better then fumbling around to find an answer.  A fumbled answer may end up being inaccurate information that could hurt your case.

Court does not have to be frightening if you provide clear short truthful answers.
