1 Answer

A Pre-Trial Conference is a scheduling conference, wherein the Judge, prosecutor, and your attorney will determine which cases are trials, which are pleas and which may need to be continued. It is very beneficial to have an attorney prior to Pre Trial Conference. Many jurisdictions require all of the negotiations and pre-trial legal motions be completed by this time. Some jurisdictions permit your attorney to waive your appearance in court on this hearing.
