Telling Your Side of the Story
Narratives are important to people, particularly when they are making judgments. This holds true in most walks of life, but it is especially true in legal proceedings. It is therefore important for a defense attorney to tell their clients’ side of the story, and explain how events unfolded.
A Resonant Story Can Make All the Difference
In a criminal trial, there are often reasons and thought processes that never get considered. People who have been accused of crimes are painted as wrongdoers by the prosecution, and it can be difficult to lift that image from the judge’s or the juror’s mind. In many cases though, there are explanations and reasons for actions that make them appear more sympathetic, and can help turn the case in the defense’s favor.
A defense attorney will talk to their client and understand what transpired. They will then figure out a favorable way to present the narrative. This often simply means that the defense puts the accused on the stand and asks questions that get at the heart of the case and their reasoning.
