Cruisin For A Bruce-in: Get Ready For Court. Part 2 – Dress Appropriately

In Cruisin' For A Bruce-in, we ride along with Florida Attorney Bruce Denson as he gives brief explanations on Florida Law and what to do in common legal situations.


When you're getting dressed for court in the morning, here's how I want you to look at it: I want you to not dress for the problem that you have; I want you to dress for the solution that you want. You need to know that the judge is going to make an immediate evaluation of you and whether you're taking this case seriously. Before you even open your mouth the best way to signal that to the judge is to wear something very conservative. Now, you don't need to wear a blue suit but, if you have one, it's probably a good idea to put it on. Women, wear light makeup, not any flashy jewelry but everybody should dress conservatively to send a signal to the judge that they're serious about their case and getting it resolved.

Further Thoughts

The way you choose to dress for your court appear is the first thing a judge will notice about you so it's important to make a good first impression, as often that is all the judge will have to go off of to evaluate your character. When you show the judge you care about your appearance before the court they will see that you're taking things seriously and will be more likely to believe that you will not repeat the offense.
