Suggestions for Testifying

Tell the Truth

The single most important item of advice is to tell the truth.

Dress Neatly

It is important that you look good in court.

Be Prepared

Think about the answers you will give to the questions you probably will be asked.

Stick to the Facts

The Judge wants to hear only the facts as you know them to be, not what someone else told you.

Relax, Speak Clearly

You have nothing to fear when giving true answers. When you are asked questions, give the Judge your answer as clearly and concise as possible.
