This podcast should help you.3 lawyers with over 75 years combined experience explain the fundamental do’s and don’ts in depositions including, go slow, only answer the question asked, if it can be answered in 3 words instead of 7, use less words; be careful about your appearance; let it be silent; how to handle objections, and why treating a deposition like you are being asked a question in a funeral home makes total sense. You can seldom win a case in a deposition, but it is very easy to LOSE a case in a deposition.
