This Should NEVER Happen to Your Attorney!

Posted by Corey L. Scott | Jul 24, 2021 | 0 Comments

My name is Corey Scott, and I am a criminal defense attorney located in Indianapolis. I would like to discuss one of the worst positions you could ever put your attorney in, and why this should never happen in a court of law!

Your attorney should never be surprised or caught off guard by information you neglected to give them. In my opinion, if this ever happens, you deserve every consequence that comes with it. If you want your attorney to go to war for you, how can your attorney march into battle with one hand tied behind their back? That is exactly what is happening when you sit on information or are not completely honest. Imagine sending your attorney into the legal battlefield on your behalf, and under the bright hot lights of the courtroom, in front of the judge, they discover that you had information all along which would have helped your case. You had information that, had your attorney known ahead of time, could have won you the case.

It is crucial that you be absolutely 100% transparent with your attorney. Tell them everything you know so that you can strategize and plot your path to victory, together. Arm your attorney for battle equipped with all the information that they need to resolve your case with the best possible outcome. This will produce a much better result than if you send your attorney to court vulnerable, without the knowledge they need to competently defend your case.

My name is Corey Scott. If you have any questions regarding this or anything else, please reach out to me. I would be more than happy to help you.
