Overview

Depositions are the foundation and building blocks of any successful lawsuit. The ramifications of poor testimony given by a witness can have fatal consequences both for a Plaintiff or Defendant, while a well-prepared attack of a witness at deposition can solidify testimony that will lead to a winning result. As such, depositions can often be the single most important part of any lawsuit.

This program, presented by Matthew Fein of the law firm of Pazer, Epstein, Jaffe & Fein, P.C., provides strategic tactics for pre-deposition preparation, defending your client, obtaining winning testimony when on the offense, and post-deposition follow-up. The course will also focus on important steps both pre- and post-deposition, and teach how to make any case more valuable or defensible.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Successfully prepare yourself and your file pre-deposition in order to question a witness effectively
  2. Obtain the skills to effectively defend your client at deposition
  3. Explore how to properly be on the offensive when questioning a witness and obtain winning answers to prove your prima facie lawsuit
  4. Identify the necessary post-deposition steps, so that the information you've obtained can be utilized properly at the conclusion of a lawsuit
