Abstract:

"Janet Kole provides another short and helpful guide to litigation, this time to help you avoid mistakes - and malpractice claims - when preparing for depositions. She covers everything from what a deposition is to the key issues that arise both during witness preparation and the deposition itself. For example, do you even want to take a deposition? Why? What will you get out of it? How do you deal with the forgetful witness, the condescending witness, the lying witness? How do you ethically prepare a witness for his or her testimony? This guide will help you navigate the minefield of problems inherent in taking and defending depositions, so that you can avoid a bad deposition"--Unedited summary from book cover.
