Preparing to Testify

1

Going to court is not in most people’s ordinary range of experience. It can be confusing and scary, whether or not they are represented by counsel. 

Here is a sheet with some basics: When Witnesses and Victims Go to Court. It’s adapted from a document by the California AG’s office by Transcend, a company that, among other things, produces plain-English versions of documents. Bonus: Transcend also also produced versions in Spanish  and Chinese.

    This is a good document, Mary; thanks for posting it. Visitors who would like other resources about going to court can find quite a few on our “should I go to court?” page, which has a link in the SideBar.

    For starters, I’d suggest:
