Court Appearances

Court appearances are extremely important in criminal cases. Failing to appear in court when commanded to appear is a definite mistake in judgment. Always assume that the suspect must be present in criminal court unless his or her attorney states otherwise. Failure to appear could result in the issuance of an arrest warrant. Showing up to court early is the best strategy, especially since the criminal defense attorney may wish to discuss the case just before entering the courtroom. Be sure to know where to find the criminal court, where to park, where to wait, and how to find the attorney. Formal dress is always appreciated in criminal court. Lawyers always dress for court, but when suspects dress formally, it makes a good impression on both the prosecuting attorney and the court, as it shows an appreciation and respect for the gravity of the circumstances and the proceedings.

The information on this page does not represent legal advice. Because the law is continually changing, some of the provisions contained herein may be out of date. It is always wise to seek counsel from an experienced Fort lauderdale Court Attorney like Kenneth Hassett.
