The number one way for the most part that I think people should dress is as though you’re going to at a minimum a contemporary religious service. I’m not talking about like old school how people used to dress 30 years ago when they went to church. What I’m talking about is if you were going to a contemporary service, how you should dress. That means, for example, at a minimum I recommend that men wear some sort of khaki jeans of some sort, perhaps a button up shirt at a minimum and then for females the equivalent of that. You certainly don’t want to look like you just came off of the street. You want to make sure your clothes are clean and that you’re looking presentable.
Also, it’s important that if you have any tattoos at all that could be visible just to the extent that you can cover them up. I’ve got friends and family that have tattoos, so I don’t have any problems with them whatsoever. When you’re going into court, you need to put on the best possible presentation and you don’t know what the biases of the judge are going to be. Maybe you have a judge that has a real problem with tattoos and that’s not the time or the place to make some sort of statement. Your goal when you’re going into court is that you want to get the best possible result.
Now in many instances, it’s perfectly fine if you want to go and dress in a suit to look presentable. For example, the same thing for a woman to wear the equivalent of a suit or an actual suit, just something along those lines is perfectly fine. You just don’t want to look like you don’t care what wearing because oftentimes what’ll happen is the judges will sometimes see that as a sign of disrespect. Certainly if you’re a female, wear makeup, but don’t wear too much makeup because that’s going to not look so good either.
