Ok, anybody ever had to be a character witness that has Conceal Carry License (s)? How about if the person needing you has Concealed License?
Yes I've been asked to be a character witness.
NO, its not a shooting.

I will know more later, and I will visit with my attorney-actually hoping to do a deposition in his office via conference call to save me drive time. Granted ,I need a road trip and would be compensated,just hoping it doesn't require anymore time or money for his sake.

Anyone BTDT? Advice, Thoughts?

Thanks.

General tips, worth as much as you paid for them - embellish/inflate your status in society, especially your occupation (gains you credence as a witness). State your relationship with the "character" as closer than it actually may be - if the circumstances dictate. Be extremely careful with your choice of words to describe anything in a court: be super precise and specific (eg. A chair is a four legged sitting device).

Good advice, Thanks.

I have quite a bit of experience being a juror. I have been an expert witness. I'm just reviewing my past experiences, curious if anything has really changed. I'am also awaiting more details. I expect to be 'advised' from my personal attorney.

I agree, a chair is a 4 legged sitting device, and the time is approx only.
