Deposition Preparation is designed especially for clients. Any person who is going to be deposed should listen to it at least twice, because it tells how to handle yourself during a deposition without making a fool out of yourself or completely blowing the case.
Included are chapters on Civil Discovery, What a Deposition is, Telling the Truth, Keeping the Answers Short, Not Volunteering Information, Controlling the Pace, Taking Breaks, Objections to Questions, Advance Preparation, Going Off the Record, Common Question, Common Objections, plus an Appendix that contains several excerpts of the law that pertains to depositions; more of interest to attorneys new to the deposition process, but possibly of interest also to clients scheduled to be deposed.
The author has also included several 'horror' stories about clients and depositions, plus "how to spot a new attorney", and other colorful information not usually included in a dry, straight-laced instructional book about some aspect of law.
This is the perfect book for any lawyer to have his or her client listen to before being deposed because even though there is no replacement for a personal lawyer-client discussion in preparation for a deposition, a client that has heard this book will make that discussion more meaningful and save a lot of time.
The publishers of this book are happy to state that on several large, high-profile cases, the attorneys have provided lists of potential witnesses and ordered copies of the print book out to each of them, to prepare them for a meeting at which all will attend to discuss the issues discussed in the book.
This audiobook and the information provided de-mystifies the process and can put the person to be deposed at ease, having learned what will happen during the deposition, so there will be no surprises.
