TESTIMONY

 

Be effective on the witness stand

 

Ladies: Wear a neat, tailored, dark blue or black, professional looking suit or dress with comfortable, coordinating shoes

 

Jewelry should be small and tasteful – no dangling or hoop earrings; no clanking bracelets

 

Men:  Wear a dark blue, gray, or brown suit, white or light blue shirt with a red or coordinating tie, with shined coordinating shoes

 

No flashy jewelry; hair and beard neat and clean

 

Keep your hands away from your mouth and face and DON’T chew gum

 

Think before you speak

 

Wait until the entire question is asked before answering

 

Never look at the prosecutor when the defense attorney is asking a question

 

Don’t volunteer any information

 

If you don’t know or can’t remember, say so!

 

Express yourself well, using simple language that the judge, the attorneys and the jury will understand

 

Always TELL THE TRUTH
