Key Witness testimony
Providing Witness Information
Any person who has firsthand knowledge of the events that occurred in your case could be a witness on your behalf. A witness either saw, or heard something, or has important information about the crime or the character of the defendant.
A good defense witness is one who:
- Supports a key argument in your defense
- Experienced the events, or has the correct expertise to support the defense
- Has no incentive to lie about the situation
- Is willing and available to testify on the day of the trial
Favorable witnesses are not usually identified in police reports. Typically, witnesses that support your defense come from you, our client. The sooner you provide this information, the sooner your criminal defense lawyer Andrew Gay Jr., will be able to identify, locate and interview the witnesses. The eventual outcome for the case may improve when witnesses are identified in a timely manner.
In preparation for your case, the first step is to meet with you to understand what happened and develop a defense strategy. After our initial meeting, we will begin interviewing available witnesses to establish the facts we need.
Maintaining communication with your witnesses is essential throughout the course of your case. In an effort to produce more favorable, accurate and informed results, we:
- Identify your witnesses
- Interview your witnesses
- Maintain contact with your witnesses throughout the litigation process
To ensure the integrity of our defense strategy, each witness will be personally interviewed by Andrew Gay Jr., not a paralegal or third party. Andrew Gay Jr. takes the time to personally sit down and listen to every defendant, and all witnesses. As your lawyer in all proceedings, this level of personal attention helps our firm to learn about what occurred, and develop working relationships with clients. With the client’s permission, Andrew Gay Jr. will also be available to answer questions your family may have.
