Cordell & Cordell Executive/Managing Partner, CEO Scott Trout, sits down with Cordell & Cordell Lead Litigator, Kristina Cervone. On this episode, Mr. Trout and Ms. Cervone discuss the do’s and don’ts of courtroom attire.
When preparing for an appearance in court, you need to be concerned about more than just what you’ll say or how you’ll behave in court. You need to think about how to dress for court as well. Mr. Trout and Ms. Cervone detail the importance of this topic by discussing how your appearance can create subconscious bias, how dress differs between criminal and family law cases, how to develop the correct character you want to project with your appearance, and more. The style of clothing you choose, along with proper hygiene, can make a significant impact.
