Tips for Testifying In Court

In-court testimony from witnesses of a crime is essential for our criminal justice system.  Once you receive a court subpoena, you MUST come to court.


If you have questions or concerns about the date or your testimony, contact our office.  The Commonwealth’s Attorney would be glad to meet with you to discuss your concerns.


1. Be Prepared.

Before you testify, try to remember the scene and exactly what happened there.  Picture the scene and the objects there.  You may be asked specific dates, times, and facts that occurred months ago, so it is beneficial to refresh your memory ahead of time.


2. Ask Questions.

If you have any questions about testifying, call the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office.  We can help make sure you are prepared for court.


3. Dress the Part.

Dress appropriately and comfortably.  Shorts, hats, halter tops, and tank tops are not permitted in court.  It is recommended that you not wear t-shirts, clothes that are too tight, or clothes that are too revealing.


4. Listen Carefully and Speak Slowly.

Make sure you understand the question before answering.  If you do not understand the question, it is OK to tell the court that.  Think about your answer before you speak.


5. Speak Clearly and Loudly in Court.

There can be a lot of other noises in the courtroom at time, speak so that everyone can hear you.  Avoid chewing gum or others things that can be distracting.


6. Tell the Truth.

Tell what happened in your own words.  Always tell the complete truth.  If you say something wrong, correct your statement immediately.


7. Do Not Guess, Speculate, or Exaggerate.

You may not know every answer posed to you.  If you do not know the answer, just say so.


8. Answer Only the Question Asked.

Your answers are limited to the questions asked of you.  If counsel objects, stop speaking and allow the court to rule on that first.  If the judge interrupts, listen to his direction.


9. Stay Calm.

Becoming angry with the attorneys or judge while testifying will not help you in a case.  Always stay calm and remain polite.


10. Leave your kids at home.

The courtroom is not an appropriate place for children.  Secure suitable childcare, unless the child has been subpoenaed.


Testifying can be an intimidating process.   Hundreds of thousands of people do it every day across the country.


Our office will do everything to make the process as easy as possible.
