Getting ready

Here is how to effectively prepare for the first meeting with a lawyer. It is a first step in taking charge of your defence.

1Write down every detail that seems important soon after your arrest:

  • Day of the week, date, time of events;
  • Where they took place;
  • Witness names and contact information, if any;
  • The context leading up to the charge.

2Gather all documents the police handed out upon your arrest. Read the terms carefully and make sure to follow them. It is important to remember that if you do not appear in court on the day you are supposed to, and if no lawyer is there to represent your behalf, the Court will issue a warrant for your arrest.
