Character references are one of the most important things that a person takes to court with them and the referee can either attend court or it can be in writing both of them valuable tools and helping a person to get best results the aim of a character reference is to show what a person is truly like it's not just to say that a wonderful person and we think the best of them is to say Johnnie is a person who helps us neighbors I remember seeing them recently helping mr. Smith next-door to mow her lawn or you've got to be very specific in them for them to be useful if they're just general they fade in value what you need to address in a character reference are written one obviously is that what the charges that a person is facing you need to address how long you have known the person for it's really of limited use if a person has only known you for a week to get a character reference from them but you don't need a priest or a local dignitary to write a character reference the best character references come from people who know you well such as your family or your close friends the reason for that is that they are able to tell the court through their written character reference what remorse you've shown and how upset you are about what's happened and often the character references that are as valuable as the lawyer because it's four or five people saying look John's a really nice guy and ever since this happened he's been saying to me I'm so ashamed I'm so hurt that I have done this thing that is wrong and and that shows to the magistrate or judge who the person truly is in a way that a lawyer often can't convey to being useful in court not only does it have to show that you're aware of what the charges it needs to show that you know whether the person has been in trouble before because there's no point tendering a character reference to the court that says he's a great guy he's never going to do this again if he's already done it twice before so with the drink-driving you've got to articulate what it is that's changed about him but you've also just got to be honest and frank so if a person has his price then talk about he told me about his previous convictions the other thing that concerns the court is that people don't tell their character references everything and then they send in a reference and it doesn't really reflect the situation so you need to have been told the detail or you tell the person the detail and then they write it out the other two very important things firstly if you have an official letterhead you run your own business or you work for a company if you're allowed to put it on the letterhead because it just distinguishes it makes it clearer who you are and where you sit in the community the second thing is you need to sign and date your character reference so what we say with our clients is get them into us early so that we can ever look at them and if they're matters that we want someone to expand on then we have time to say...
