Preparing for trial is, by nature, hectic. If you are not wired enough to power the Titans’ Coliseum on a night game, you are not paying enough attention. It’s helpful to have a checklist to see if all of the applicable basics are covered.
This trial preparation is set out in phases – sixty days before trial, thirty days out, at the pre-trial conference, and in the final days before trial. The courtroom is a much friendlier place when you thoroughly prepare yourself.
The checklist is not carved in stone. It is not a “must do” list. Rather, it is simply as list of the matters that you may want to consider in the course of your trial prepartion.
