In this video, you will learn how to prepare your case. Specifically, the dos and don’ts of making depositions. If your client has a deposition right around the corner, it is your job to help them prepare for it. These are some tips you can give them.
If you are prepping for a deposition, that means a lawsuit has been filed and you are in the discovery stage. When talking to a client, make it a point to tell them not to stress. Bringing your A-game is important. Getting a good night’s sleep before the deposition is very important. Conveying your point to the client can sometimes help. If it is an in-person deposition, you don’t have to wear a suit. Since it isn’t in a court room, it can be more casual. The environment is more laid back. The next tip is to assume that the jury sees and hears the deposition. You want the client to dress appropriately. Assume the footage or recording will be shown to the jury. The jury will be sensitive to it. The credibility will go away if there is any issues during the deposition. Remaining professional and calm during the deposition.
