Outside of my commitment working as an attorney, defending clients from
prosecutors and law enforcement agents, I also act as an advisor to my
clients as well. Any good attorney is not only a lawyer, but also a personal
advisor as well. At Sullivan & Brill, LLP, we look out for our clients’
best interests. One example of how I help clients resolve their case favorably,
is by making sure they make smart decisions and leave good impressions.
Making sure my clients make the right decisions regarding what they wear
to court is one such example. Hearing fashion advice from an attorney
sounds strange, I know--but it is more important than you can imagine.
Why Should it Matter?
I imagine you dress well when you go for a job interview, go on a date,
or attend a ceremony, like a wedding. So, why should court be any different?
If you are charged with a crime, whether you like it or not, you are being
judged by the Judge and the prosecutor. The impression you leave them
by what you wear when you are before them could tip the scales toward
a better plea offer or a lower sentence.
Why? What you wear tells others you care about what you did, you care about
where you are, you respect the process and system, and you take it seriously.
These are signals that you want to give the court and the prosecutor,
to persuade them to view you in a better light than if they viewed you
based on the charges against you. By dressing well, you give the Judge
and prosecutor a reason to take you seriously, and value you as a person.
Naturally, what you wear will not control the outcome of your case--argument
and facts do that. However, dressing well will certainly help.
