Going To Court
Your Attorney Will Communicate On Your Behalf
When you retain an attorney, your job is much easier than when you represent yourself. Your attorney will communicate with the court from the beginning to the end for you. After you retain an attorney, he or she will send a so-called “appearance letter”, the letter that describes that the attorney is representing you in court. Once the appearance letter is submitted to court, the court will send a court notice to both the attorney and the defendant. If there is a scheduling issue, for example, the attorney will contact the court so that the defendant does not have to handle this issue with the court directly. When you retain an attorney, the attorney will communicate with the court on your behalf.
