As a busy criminal defense attorney who handles a variety of client cases, you probably have a scheduled packed to the brim – or beyond. Problems can arise when you have conflicting court dates that cannot be postponed. You need to be in both courts, but obviously you will have to prioritize one over the other and face the consequences.
Missing a court appearance can result in:
- Your client losing their case.
- You being seen in bad standing with the court or bar.
- Destruction of your professional reputation.
Rather than risking so much by missing a court date, let Attorney Scott Bentley of Bentley Law act as a courtesy appearance attorney. You can call our law firm at (805) 210-8555 at any time to request Attorney Bentley stand in place during your client’s court appearance and act on your behalf and in the best interest of your client, just as you would. We are always careful when arranging our schedules and determining our own availability, so we might even be able to accept your courtesy appearance attorney request at a moment’s notice!

Benefits of Working with a Courtesy Appearance Attorney
We have already established the main benefit of courtesy appearance attorneys: showing up to court when you can’t. Standing in your place is only the beginning of why courtesy appearance attorneys are so helpful and highly praised in legal circles, though.
As your courtesy appearance attorney, Scott Bentley frees up your time, energy, and resources so you can focus them on higher stakes or greater reward cases. He also can take thorough notes and provide his feedback and insight, if you request. Simply traveling to a court at the other end of the county can be a significant time drain if you have more pressing matters on your timetable. Eliminate the stress from that obligation in one phone call by dialing (805) 210-8555 and requesting our courtesy appearance attorney services in Ventura County and Los Angeles.
