- It is important to obtain the names and contact information of any witnesses along with dated and signed statements if possible.
- Take pictures of the crime scene and any injuries to yourself, if appropriate, and gather any evidence that would help persuade the state attorney or a court to accept your defense.
- Understand defense strategies that may help your case such as hiring your own expert witnesses, filing motions to limit or eliminate the charge and/or testimony or evidence, and deposing state witnesses.
- Discuss and understand possible options open to you if you enter a plea (e.g., drug court, diversion programs, youthful defender, probation, community control/house arrest)
- Be sure to hire a lawyer with trial experience in felony cases. Don’t be afraid to verify their credentials and ask if they have ever tried a felony case before a jury.
