Court Preparation & Support

We understand that going to court can be very overwhelming and intimidating. Our court preparation service involves talking about how the legal system operates, the processes involved in criminal hearings, trials, and what this may mean for you.

Reliving a traumatic event while having to give evidence in court can be extremely stressful, and will often bring up many different emotions. We can assist you with some practical strategies that can help you to stay focused on the questions asked, as opposed to letting the emotional part of the brain take over.

We provide clients with the Department of Justice booklet “The Justice Journey’ and explain the different roles of court personal, formal processes, as well explaining the process of evidence in chief and cross examination.
