How to prepare for an upcoming trial

If your court case in San Francisco is heading to trial, it's natural to be nervous. You're worried about saying and doing the right thing. You have concerns about your strategy. You don't want to come across as someone the jury won't like.

While there is sure to be a lot on your mind, with the guidance of an experienced legal team, your stress level can go down several notches. Your attorney will make sure you're ready for anything and everything that comes your way during your trial.

Here are some basic tips to keep in mind:

  • Know why you're heading to court: Regardless of the reason for your trial, have a clear idea of what you're doing there and what you're seeking as a final outcome.
  • Consider if mediation makes more sense: Before your case heads to litigation, consider if mediation makes more sense for your particular situation. This doesn't always work, but it's one of the better ways to maintain control over the process.
  • Know the ins and outs of your case: Work with your legal team to understand the details of your case, including your strategy, the outcome you're seeking and how to react to every possible situation.
  • Remain flexible: There are a lot of moving parts with a court case, so flexibility is a must. For example, you may be ready to go to court, just to find that you have the opportunity to settle. An open mind puts you in position to consider everything that comes your way.
  • Listen to your legal team: Preparing for trial means listening to everything your legal team has to say. You hired them to provide advice, so you might as well let them guide you through the process. While you may be new to the courtroom, they know what it takes to come out on top.

With the proper preparation for your trial, you'll feel good about your ability to make all the right moves when you enter the courtroom. Combine this with experienced legal representation, and you'll have all the confidence you need to proceed.
