How to Make Your Testimony Powerful

Debt Collection Michigan

Are you worried about going to trial?

Do you know what to expect?

Are you wondering how you can strengthen your testimony?

Testifying at a trial can be a nerve-wracking experience. As with everything else in trial, the number one key to success is preparation. With a few simple steps, you can make your testimony even more powerful:

  1. Maintain a professional look. Don’t underestimate the power of dressing for success. Dressing like a professional tells the court that you take the proceeding seriously. Dressing casually may tell the court that you don’t think the case is very important.
  2. Act like a professional. Try to project professional confidence without arrogance. Your body language is important. When you look professional and act professional, people will perceive you as a professional. They’ll listen to you and believe what you say.
  3. Be on time. Don’t be late for court hearings, particularly the trial. Arrive early so you have time to get your bearings, review your paperwork, and compose yourself for trial.
  4. Tell your story. In small claims court, you can usually give a complete explanation of your case, from start to finish. Paint a clear picture and show the judge documents that support your case.
  5. Be concise. Don’t go into too much history – just enough to describe the main facts of the case. 
  6. Keep it simple. Focus on three or four major points. At the end, tell the judge exactly how much money the defendant owes, down to the penny.

In order to collect on a debt, you need to be able to identify exactly who your debtor is –a partnership, corporation or a limited liability company. This is not always easy! This process can be long and complicated, especially if your debtor is using multiple names and/or locations.
