Tips for Representing Yourself in Court
- Dress the way you want to be treated: professionally. Shorts, tanks tops, and bare feet are not allowed in the courtroom. Do not chew gum. Set pagers and cell phones to silent.
- Be on time! Be seated in the courtroom with your documents [bring at least 3 copies] and your witnesses at least 10 minutes before court is scheduled to begin. Make sure you are in the right courtroom. Sit quietly in the courtroom, until your case is called.
