Posted by Blackie Burak | Mar 25, 2019 | 0 Comments

If you choose to testify at your DUI trial, it will be helpful to understand how to do so in a way that is most beneficial to your case. YourWalnut Creek DUI attorney has laid out some useful tips below. 

Your Behavior
During your testimony, it is understandable that you may be nervous. Regardless of how you are feeling, remember to look up at the jury when you are answering and try to make eye contact with individual jurors.

Your Testimony
Before answering any question, it is crucial that you listen carefully to what was asked of you and then count to three before responding. Answer only that question, keeping your answer precise, simple, and to the point. Do not be shy about expressing emotion or demonstrating when necessary. If you do not know the answer to a question, just be honest that you do not remember or do not know.

The above information will be helpful as you begin to prepare for your DUI trial. It is best, though, to speak with a Walnut Creek DUI attorney about the specifics of your case to ensure that you are completely ready to testify.
