“My wife some months back served on a jury for a trial in which you successfully defended a woman charged with DUI.
She was impressed by your work, and it occurred to me that my teen-age daughter, who I want to consider studying law, might be, too, if given the opportunity to see you in court.
Thus my request: Is there any easy way to learn your court date schedule this summer?
If I need to check directly with the court on a regular basis – or whatever – I’ll happily do it.
Thanks kindly for your time with this.”
