I have a trial: what should I expect/be aware of?

Judges and Magistrates appreciate punctuality. You do not want to start things off on the wrong foot by showing up late. It is good practice to plan to be at the Courthouse at least 30 minutes before your scheduled proceeding. This should allow you ample time to find a parking space, pass through Court Security and make your way to your courtroom.

What should I wear?

First impressions are important. Business-casual dress is appropriate. You certainly will not be expected to wear a suit and tie, but dressing professionally and appropriately will help to ensure you make a positive first impression.

How should I address the Judge?

If you are addressing a Judge or Magistrate, addressing him or her as “Your Honor,” is appropriate.

Who else may be present in the Courtroom?

Generally, aside from other parties present for their own matters, who may be seated in the gallery, you likely will find attorneys, a Court Reporter, a Judicial Assistant, and a Bailiff. The Court Reporter is responsible for transcribing testimony before the Court. The Judicial Assistant, as the name implies, assists the Judge or Magistrate, and may perform duties akin to a paralegal, legal secretarial, and/or office administrative support for the Court.

Will my Trial start on time?

It is a safe rule of thumb to ALWAYS assume that your trial or hearing will start on time. Again, Judges and Magistrates appreciate punctuality and you certainly do not want to start things off on the wrong foot by arriving late.
