What is a deposition?
Depositions are scheduled to help attorneys gather a complete profile of facts and testimonies for their case. Though not required by law, depositions make a world of difference. Court reporters record the questions and answers and format them into an accurate transcripts that the legal counsel can use for reviewal at a later time.
What is the purpose of a deposition?
Attorneys use the deposition process to carefully craft their case. They are able to go over with witnesses what should be said in court, so to create an impenetrable defense. On the flip side, if the opposing counsel’s witness’ story during the deposition strays from what they say in court, the attorney can make those discrepancies known to the judge and jury.
Depositions are crucial to having a superior case. Learn how you can set yourself up for success below.
Set Yourself Up for Success
By guaranteeing you and your team are consistent between deposition and trial, you are setting yourself up for greatness. Be honest and be consistent. Remind your witness to speak slowly and clearly, as well as to let the attorney finish speaking before answering. Ask for clarification on an unclear question when necessary, so the witness can be certain they’re giving their best answer possible.
