What should I wear to my preliminary hearing?

The best advice we can give you is the simplest. Folks will treat you the way you dress. Maybe folks think that isn’t fair, but we operate in the real world. The quickest way to lose your case is to show up to court looking like a bum. No one will think that you are anything other than a bum. So wear your Sunday best. That’s what we do. It matters. If you want to be taken seriously, then you must act seriously. Should people be treated based upon their looks or clothes? Maybe not. But again, we operate in the real world. In the real world, how you present yourself and your first impression matters 100% of the time.

Why can’t I just plead guilty and pay a fine for a drug charge?

These charges are either felonies or misdemeanors depending upon the type of drug and the amount or what you were alleged to be doing with the drug. This is not a “slap on the wrist.” If it is a felony charge, the consequences if you are found guilty can last a lifetime. If it is a misdemeanor, it can and will hurt you in many ways too because it is on your criminal record. So, if you take your life and what happens with it seriously, then you need to take the charges seriously.
