Clients always ask what can they do to help their case . It’s simple write. Once your arrested start writing notes . Immediately write detailed notes about the case . Don’t leave anything out . Witnesses , weather conditions , potential alibi witnesses are just some examples of what to write down . Notes are important to you as well as your criminal defense attorney. Make sure you provide these notes to your attorney along with any other documentation such as restaurant receipts for a drunk driving case . I would suggest also creating a time-line of events .

Why is note taking important to your case ?

 Sometimes , it can be months or years before you go to court . A witnesses who recalls the events is more likely to be a better witness. Why do you think the police make arrest reports and case narratives  ?  You should do the same.
