3. Determine any mitigating circumstance - psychological, survival, etc.
4. Tell court if client committed what is alleged.
5. Explain why he did it.
6. Explain mitigating circumstances.
7. Seek to obtain a just sentence - the punishment fits the crime.
8. Seek to have the sentence modified in light of mitigating circumstances.
9. Tell the truth and do not seek to hide any important facts.
10. Operate above board with others.
11. Represent client to best of ability with honesty, intergrity, justice, and compassion as your guides.
