Preparing For Trial

Well, it’s that time again,,, time to prepare for trial. I spend the last 2 days frantically searching for medical records of my client to see if he is in a medical unit while he is incarcerated in TDCIJ (prison). The only records TDCIJ has are from 1999 until 2000.  Not a very long time reflective of his stay in TDCIJ, nor are there any records of being hospitalized for mental illness while in the pen.

You know, sometimes the “experts” are just wrong, plain and simple. Those that work day to day with a client are in a better position to judge whether or not the client has a mental illness that prevents him or her from fully understanding the situation he or she is facing than some “expert” who interviews the client for 30 minutes.

So there you have it,, sometimes the experts are just plain wrong. How does this relate to a jury trial? In order to win, you must tell the client’s story and no one can tell the client’s story when they are only in it for a spec of time in a sterile environment. Have a nice day, I’m off to court.
