A client’s credibility is not just an intangible thing that one must do one’s best to maintain and preserve. It is something the jury is instructed to evaluate. Jury instructions direct the men and women of the jury to consider a party’s or witness’ credibility and advise jurors that they have discretion to disregard everything a witness or party says as untrue if they find him or her untrue in one aspect of testimony. In other words, it is graded by jurors and can be determinative on a finding of guilt or innocence.
