Product Description

Successful trial lawyers know that a case can be won long before the parties set foot in court. They know how critical diligent discovery is to success at trial. And they know how to use deposition testimony as an evidentiary precision tool! The Massachusetts Deposition Practice Manual trains you to ask the right questions, negotiate the trickier topics and interject the key objections to use depositions to "win" the case, or to maximize your leverage at the settlement table.

Learn how to deal with depositions that involve special needs witnesses, interpreters, medical or other experts, class actions or video recording. Not only will the manual prepare you to meet your opponent on solid ground at your next deposition, with its guidance you may even capture the advantage.
