Character Reference Letter for Court. It’s no secret. When you go to court you should be well prepared to present your case, whatever side of
the table you sit; whether it’s civil, criminal, prosecution or defense.
In addition to having the best lawyer representation that you can afford you might want to include a character reference for the court reflective of your honor, integrity and strength of character.
And although one may not be appropriate for every court appearance there will be situations where it will absolutely be in your best interest, or that of someone asking you to write a letter for them, to present a Reference Letter to a Judge. Following is a letter for such occasions.
The Honorable Judge (name)
Re: Person's Full Name
I am writing on behalf of (name), whom I have known for about ten years, first as a coworker and later as a friend.
(name) is a man of few words, as you are likely to discover for yourself during his court hearing. However, there is no better role model in our workplace than him; not necessarily by words which can be meaningless when the rubber meets the road, but by deed.
An example of this is a recent incident where a customer lost a purse containing more than $1,000.00 cash while visiting our facility. (name) found the purse, called the person who lost it (her identification and contact information was in the purse) and arranged for her to pick it up at her convenience.
The alternative was that he could have simply kept the cash and discarded the purse…and while $1,000.00 may not sound like a lot of money it arguably is to someone who earns minimum wage. This is just one of the many ways that (name) carries himself every day that earns the respect of his friends and co-workers.
If there is anybody who deserves a second chance with regard to legal issues it would be (name) and if you take a moment and get to know him during his court proceeding I think you might agree.
In closing, thank you for your attention to this letter and
I am available should you have any questions of me.
