How to Prepare for Your Visit to a Boston Courthouse
If you are preparing for a trial date, it is likely that you already have a pending case. As your court date gets near, these tips can help you prepare for your visit:
- Understand what the court date is: There are many reasons why you may have a scheduled court date. You may have an arraignment, review hearing, bond hearing, or criminal or civil trial. Understanding what type of court date you have can help you prepare what to say and what evidence to bring to court for your legal case.
- Talk with a lawyer: While you are not required to work with a lawyer, there are many reasons to consider doing so. A lawyer can not only help you navigate your case, but also assist with gathering evidence. Whether you have an upcoming civil or criminal case, you will need a lawyer who knows the local laws.
- Leave your phone at home: Most courthouses do not allow you to bring your phone into them. It is best to leave it in the car or at home.
- Dress professionally: Whether this is your first visit to the courthouse or you are already well into your case, how you dress can demonstrate how serious you are taking the case.
Feeling unsure and confused is normal as you prepare for your upcoming court date. When you work with a lawyer that you trust, with experience in the process, they can provide you with comfort as you get ready for your court date. They can provide you with guidance and also answer any questions that you might have.
