While every case is different, a DelSignore Law attorney will be able to give you feedback as to whether a jury trial or bench trial may better suit you. If you elect for a bench trial, your case will be heard by a judge rather than a panel of citizens (jury). On the day of trial, Attorney DelSignore will make a decision based on his knowledge of the court and the judge scheduled to hear your case.
Jury trials typically last longer and you can expect to spend about a day in court. Bench trials are generally quicker, typically lasting only a couple of hour. In many cases, the prosecutors case is largely dependent upon the testimony of the arresting officer. Sometimes, there may be a civilian witness or expert witnesses, but this is not common.
