Advice for Dressing For Your Criminal Court Appearance

Your criminal defense attorney can help you prepare for court by letting you know what to expect from the proceedings.

In other words, your criminal attorney won’t want to see you show up for your appearance wearing a revealing outfit or trendy, bright colors. You could wear a suit, long skirt or dress, or similar attire in subtle colors.
