How Can You Assist In Your Own Defense

You and lawyer should work together as a team to obtain the best disposition in your case. This means that you should keep yourself informed of all progress on your case and actively participate in your own defense. Do not discuss your case with anyone other than your lawyer, do not contact any law enforcement agency without first speaking to your lawyer, never consent to any search or hand anything to law enforcement without first consulting your lawyer, immediately contact any potential witnesses helpful to your defense, tell your lawyer the facts as you experienced and understood them, and be completely open and honest with your lawyer. Remember that what you tell your lawyer is privileged and confidential.
