Being prepared and professional will give you the best chance of leaving the courtroom with a favorable outcome.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 17, 2014
Dax Jones, primary attorney of The Jones Law Firm, has released a guide detailing the correct behavior during court proceedings following a speeding ticket. Dax Jones, having years of courtroom experience, knows the in’s and out’s of courtroom etiquette.
“Being prepared and professional will give you the best chance of leaving the courtroom with a favorable outcome.” Dax states, firmly.
His first advice is to prepare what your have to say beforehand. “Winging it,” he says, “never works well. A judge responds best to a well-prepared explanation that doesn’t waste his time.”
In addition to preparing yourself, Dax Jones’ article also reminds people to dress nicely. A well-groomed appearance goes a long way in reassuring the court of your respect for them, the law, and yourself.
The blog post also explains that ,while presenting a defense, it is important to phrase sentences that don’t indicate guilt. For example, individuals should not state that they were driving 67mph in a 65mph zone. This will be less effective than saying that they were travelling at a speed safe for the conditions and moving at the same speed as the traffic around them.
It is important too, Dax Jones affirms, not to give excuses to the court. This will diminish their inclination to provide a favorable outcome. Excuses such as ignorance of the speed limit, the officer was targeting without cause, and sob stories will not ingratiate individuals with the judge.
The Jones Firm article’s parting advice is, “Honesty, clarity, and professionalism are the keys to a favorable outcome of a speeding ticket hearing. Prepare beforehand and conduct yourself well during the trial, and your chances of a good result increase dramatically.”
