An attorney may appear in court on your behalf without you being present so long as the Criminal Defense Attorney Buffalo, NY submits a “Waiver of Appearance” which allows the attorney to waive the appearance of his or her client. The court then permits the attorney to show up to the court while the accused need not show up for certain proceedings. In some cases, depending on the seriousness of the charge, the accused may have to show up for certain proceedings.
