What Should I Wear To Court In Maryland Medical Malpractice Trial?

What Should I Wear To Court Explains Prince George’s County Medical Malpractice Lawyer?

What should I wear to court in my Maryland medical malpractice trial is a question that can sometimes cross the minds of individuals who are dealing with an upcoming trial date.

Should you just dress with some jeans and a tee shirt?

Should you wear the biggest rings and earrings that you own?

Or should you wear the tightest dress in your closet, profiling all of your curves?

The following educational article will give you a better understanding of how these cases work, thereby allowing you make the best choice regarding your court appearance.


When you elect to have a trial by jury the main goal of the trial is to get the jury to agree with your position.

To do this you have to make sure that the evidence is presented in such a way that the jury will understand your position, and eventually agree.

If you have hired an attorney to represent you, your attorney will present the evidence so that the jury will follow your version on things and come to a verdict favorable to your position.


One has to remember that the people who are sitting in to hear your trial are just that, people.

This means that they can be distracted and lose focus during trial.

As a result of this it is our position that it is more than likely in your best interests to wear attire to court which is more on the conservative side.

A simple black, or navy, or gray suit and tie is always a good idea for men.

Women will not go wrong with a dress or skirt to the knee.

Add to this, the dress or skirt should be appropriately fitted.

You just do not want to increase the chance of a juror missing a key point in your case because they are too focused on your huge hoop earrings, for example.

Keep it simple and conservative for the most part.
