Following the Pretrial Conference, you and your attorney will meet to create the final list of witnesses, compile all necessary trial documents, and draft trial questions for friendly and hostile witnesses. At Spencer, Philpot & Collier, LLC, in order to accommodate our client's busy schedules this trial preparation can takes place on a weekend or after regular business hours to allow you and your attorney the uninterrupted time necessary to compile this information. A good rule of thumb is two hours of trial preparation time for each hour of trial time. In other words, if trial is set to last one day, trial preparation will usually take two days. This is the time to have a frank discussion with your attorney about your concerns as they relate to both witness testimony and documents the other side may attempt to introduce at trial.
