Dines’ Exhibits Hints
Have your attorney provide the assigned court exhibit numbers to you so that you can cross-reference them with your in-house numbers. This will enable the judge, jury and attorneys to quickly identify your exhibit, saving time and enhance your efficiency, a plus.
A rushed impromptu exhibit should not be considered. The lack of time needed to reason it out carefully and completely can result in inconsistencies or mistakes. If you’re lucky, the court will not let such an exhibit to be entered as evidence.
If possible, fax or mail copies of the exhibits to your attorney as soon as you finish them. If there are problems from the attorney’s standpoint, you want to hear about them as soon as possible.
