Role of the Witness
It is essential that the defense lawyer and the investigator work together as a team to prepare witnesses for the trial. Being on the witness stand with a judge and 12 to 15 jurors listening intently to every word is stressful. Being truthful, accurate, and sincere while on the stand takes skill, confidence, and preparation. Putting a witness in the witness box without preparation is almost criminal; it guarantees that the witness will not help the case.
