Offers of Proof …
If you start to offer evidence, the other side objects, and the judge sustains your opponent’s objection, you must move the court to allow you to make clear on the record what your evidence was going to be and what it would tend to prove!
This is making an offer of proof.
Expect your opponent to try to stop you.
Make an offer of proof immediately!
Offers of proof show the court on the record:
- What the offered evidence is and
- What the evidence tends to prove
Failure to get evidence admitted is fatal!
If you don’t get your evidence admitted and don’t make an offer of proof, you’ll have nothing to appeal if you lose!
You can’t introduce evidence for the first time on appeal.
Get the “How to Win in Court” course because it will show you how to make offers of proof, and a whole lot more.
