Honorable Edward Ewell, Jr.
3rd Circuit Court
I would first tell all new lawyers to follow the three p’s: be prompt, be prepared and be professional. Next, know your Judge. You can find out a lot on their website and if they protocols. If all else fails, ask other lawyers.
If you gave an opportunity to work with a Judge a bar or civic Function it will allow the Judge to get to know you in a different setting. It will help you feel more comfortable in Court.
Finally, if you have a trial or hearing before a Judge, after the matter is concluded many Judges like me would provide constructive criticism.
All in all, everything you do to prepare for each appearance will not only help you be be a better advocate but also enhance your reputation.
