- BRING ANY AND ALL PAPERWORK:
- ASK SPECIFICALLY ABOUT YOUR CHARGE:
- BE SURE TO HAVE A DETAILED RECOLLECTION OF THE EVENTS LEADING TO YOUR ARREST.
You are often the first source of information for your attorney to begin evaluating and preparing a defense to your case. While the attorney is the expert, you play a vital role in the gathering of information. Before you go to a consultation you should take the time to write out a detailed summary of the events surrounding your arrest. In addition, you should put together a list of potential witnesses including their contact information and people in the community who would be willing to give character statements on your behalf. Sometimes, the case is more about limiting the consequences of an offense rather than guilt/innocence. Having this information will aid your attorney in painting you in the best light possible when dealing with the State’s prosecutors.
