How Can You Assist Your Lawyer in Your Criminal Defense Case?

Criminal charges can be a daunting idea for a lot of people and one of the first things that come to mind when faced with them is how you can assist your lawyer in your criminal defense. The truth is that there are actually quite a few things you can do to assist your lawyer during these cases and to help smooth out the process we’ll give you a little bit of insight into these methods.

Be Crystal Clear

One of the most important things you can do to assist your lawyer is to be completely clear in a couple of different areas. Firstly, you should be clear with what your goals are for the lawyer and how far you can sway from those goals. Are you happy with a plea bargain or will you fight to the end to deny everything?

Secondly, you should always be clear and honest when your lawyer asks you questions. In the end this helps them get the full view of what’s happened so they can help provide you with the best outcome to your case. In these situations, the attorney-client privilege helps to protect you, regardless of what you’re saying as long as it doesn’t pose threat to someone in the future.

Be Prompt

Whether it’s arriving to your court dates or getting information to your lawyer, make sure it’s all done early. Show up 15 minutes early to hearings, get your lawyer things like receipts a few days early. All of this helps keep things running smoother and can make you look like a better person in court simply based on your appearance, accountability, and promptness.

Be Responsible

During your case you may have an impulse to share certain details or information with people either in person or on social media but this can be to the detriment of your case. Under no circumstance should you ever be sharing information about your case on social media especially.

While these cases can be tough to handle these are some methods you can assist your lawyer in your criminal defense case to help ensure things move along smoothly.

      I have found Richard to be fair over all with both parties in the capacity of a GAL. There is sometimes where he should not be as lenient in his recommendations, but that is just him using all his options.
