Importance of Consulting a Lawyer Before Taking the Stand

Witnesses are often subpoenaed to provide testimony or additional documents for a legal case. Sometimes, these documents or your testimony can be potentially damaging. Your attorney can inform you of your rights, explore the possibility of challenging the subpoena, and help you weigh the potential risks. At our firm, we can guide you through the process and work to safeguard your interests.

Consulting a lawyer before serving as a witness can help you avoid the possibility of:

  • Damage to your reputation
  • Damage to your career
  • Self-incrimination
  • Criminal exposure
  • Unintentional disclosure of sensitive or confidential information
  • Providing testimony that appears conflicting or problematic
  • Being exposed to further litigation
