When Will You Get a Chance to Talk?

We have seen this question pop up time and time again with federal criminal cases because people want their chance to tell their side of the story. With the federal system making them look bad, they want the chance to even it out. Perhaps you’ve had to sit through the prosecution’s side of the story to the judge and listen to what happened based on their version of the events. You feel amazed that they can tell a story like this about you that has no roots in truth.

Feeling Vulnerable

When you have to listen to the prosecutor tell this side of the story, you may feel irate because your side of the story isn’t being told. You want to tell the judge that the story has more to it. The prosecutor has taken many things out of context to use them against you in the court of law. In fact, they have misconstrued a great deal of what they should be telling. Another problem is that they’re depending on people who are straight up lying. The prosecutor has painted an ugly and unjustified picture of you. What can you do? When will you get your chance to tell your side of the story?

A Demeaning Process

Unfortunately, the entire process of getting tried in the federal court system has some element of being degraded. For example, you get placed in handcuffs and brought before the federal court judge. They don’t even call you by your name. Instead, they simply call you, the “Defendant.” All of this can feel very degrading.

Don’t Speak at the Expense of Prison Time

You don’t want to make a statement that will only cause you to have more prison time. What can you do to get your chance to speak? First, speak with your lawyer because he or she will have the best understanding of how to proceed with the case without making you look bad to the courts. Tell them precisely what you think they need to hear. While your lawyer may say that some of the things that you have told him don’t matter, you could still tell him some things that could be crucial in helping your case. If it matters enough to you, it should matter enough to the lawyer to explain the situation better to you.

What if My Lawyer Doesn’t Listen?

This shows that you don’t have the best relationship with your lawyer, and you might be better off looking elsewhere for a different attorney. Your lawyer should have the ability to tell you everything that you need to know about the case. Tell them what you think they absolutely must hear. Not every lawyer will click with every client. In addition, some lawyers simply don’t have good listening skills, but you don’t want this to end up costing you the case. What if they aren’t listening and you tell them a crucial piece of information? Because you only get one chance to have your case heard, you need to have the best legal representation possible.

Never Talk?

Some lawyers will tell you that it’d be best if you don’t speak at all to the prosecution or the judge or the jury. However, you do have cases where it might make sense to speak to the judge, jury or prosecution because it could help your case. You should always exercise caution in doing this, however, because while you want your voice heard, you don’t want them to have more to use against you.

How to Speak in Court

When you go to speak in court, you want to look as responsible and polite as possible. Remain and act calm when telling your story. You also want to make sure that everything you say is clear. Whenever you address the judge, you should say, “Yes, your honor,” or “No, your honor.” This shows respect to the judge. In addition, keep your temper under control throughout, and if you don’t think that you can, it’s better to say nothing than to have this go against you in the court system.

Talking is fine under some circumstances, but you have to plan it out correctly. You need to make sure that when you speak, the right person hears it at the right time. If you believe that you’re more than what the prosecution is trying to paint you as, you have a right to speak. However, we would implore you that you speak about this with your attorney first to ensure that whatever you say doesn’t get used against you later. Many lawyers will give you plenty of examples where their client misspoke, and it cost them the case. Understanding when to speak and when to stay quiet it crucial.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
