My Attorney Filed A Motion To Suppress In My Case: What Does That Mean?

If you are represented by an attorney he or she will discuss the progress of your case and keep you informed of hearings you must attend or decisions you must make regarding your case.

Sometimes your attorney will file pretrial motions such as a motion to suppress evidence. The judge will hold a separate hearing on the motion prior to your trial and will render a decision on the particular issue raised in the motion. Your attorney should explain to you the purpose of the motion and the significance of the outcome.
