call-quartz-hill-bailbonds

  • Arrive to your court hearing a few minutes early.
  • Dress appropriately, like you are going for an interview. Avoid flashy jewelry and distracting, revealing, and unkempt clothing items.
  • Remove hats and sunglasses.
  • Do not chew gum.
  • Sit and stand straight.
  • Speak only when you are asked.
  • Answer only what you are asked.
  • Speak clearly.
  • Say “yes” and “no” rather than nodding and shaking your head.
  • Remain calm and collected. Do not grow angry and argumentative.
  • Turn your cell phone off.
  • If you have young children who would not be in school at the moment, arrange to have someone babysit them at home.
  • Trust your lawyer and let them do the talking, unless you are asked to speak.
  • Use the bathroom before court begins.
  • Be respectful. Address the judge by “Your Honor.”

These are all tips on how one should present themselves and act in court. As a defendant accused of a crime, these will help show the court that you are taking this matter seriously. Body language and appearance can influence the court.
