    Default What to a expect from legal team in build up to going to trial?

    Hi folks,

    With little under 2 months till I go to trial, I am again seeking some advice.

    This forum has been amazing at putting my (overdriven) mind at rest.

    As the title of my post says, what should I expect from my lawyer/barrister in the build up to trial.
    I havent heard very much from them, so assuming no news = good news.

    However as the time ticks down should I hear more from them or should I be contacting them?

    Again any replies appreciated!

    I am interested as well as son due in court start of december and although have seen barrister/solicitors a number of times they havent even looked at the file of evidence we had put together much less discussed it.
    I know the wheels of the legal system move slowly but it seems that they dont move at all sometimes!

    Am I right in thinking you are in Scotland? (Sorry - I lose track especially when I have my head in an appeal)

    I think laws and procedures are rather different to here in England. Hopefully somebody from your neck of the woods will happen by, and help.

    Scotland.
    We had a case conducted in Scotland, Wronglyaccused2016. We never ended a meeting or phone call with the solicitor without knowing what to expect next and the timeframe. If you don't know what's happening and expecially if you are worried, feel free to call them and ask. I don't say this in the spirit of saying that people should pester their legal team or anything like that, but don't forget that even if you are getting legal aid, you are employing them and are entitled to a certain amount or reassurance. Yes, they are intelligent, capable and highlytrained people who are often very busy, but that doesn't make them better than you in the respect that they can just leave you dangling and worrying with impunity. No, they don't provide counselling or other emotional supportservices, but if there's a knowledge gap, you are entitled to ask them to fill it.

    @franticwithworry

    thank you for your reply.

    I will do just that, I have always been a believer that silence is bliss.
    Naivety possibly.
