Note Taking During Pretrial Conferences

Napa-County-Creek-DUI-lawyer2-300x300Part of the role of your Napa County Creek DUI lawyer is to assess the prosecution’s case. One way that he or she can accomplish this is by watching the actions of the prosecution during pretrial conferences.


Your Napa County Creek DUI lawyer can look to see if the prosecutor makes a lot of notes during the conference. Many times, one prosecutor may not be assigned to handle the case from start to finish. For this reason, the prosecutor who is currently handling the case must take care to provide adequate notes so that the next prosecutor will have a clear understanding of what has occurred to date. If your Napa County Creek DUI lawyer observes the prosecutor writing extensive notes, he or she may assume that there may be something good or bad that has been revealed about the case.

Determining the Tone of the Notes

Your Napa County DUI attorney may be able to determine whether the notes that the prosecution are good or bad for your case by the tone of the next pretrial conference. A prosecutor who takes a rigid line likely suggests that the notes are bad for you, but a softer approach may mean that the prosecution believes that problems may be foreseen.If you would like to learn more about this note-taking process, a DUI attorney may be able to help.
