Information

Why Attend?

All too often, witnesses and their counsel frustrate the deposition process with obstructive and abusive behavior. Although there are times when a judge may need to intervene, it is usually up to counsel to control the deposition process. This program provides views from the trenches and from the bench on how to deal with problem witnesses and problem counsel.

  • Learn practical solutions for keeping control of the deposition from the experts
  • Hear what the judges have to say about deposition problems

Every litigator has stories of that nightmarish deposition starring the uncooperative witness and rude opposing counsel. Combative testimony, speaking objections, improper coaching, and derogatory personal references are all featured. The resulting out-of-control deposition yields little of value—other than another good story to tell later.

Wouldn’t it be better to control the deposition from the very beginning? This seminar will help, addressing the problems and their resolution:

  • Inside the Deposition Room
    Speakers: Mic McConnell, Elizabeth Perrow, Katie Uston
    • Witness preparation and coaching
    • Proper and improper objections
    • Dealing with experts
    • Controlling the video or phone deposition
    • Best practices for taking and defending depositions
    • Ethical issues
    • Avoiding waiver of objections and other issues for appeal
  • Judicial Perspectives on Deposition Disagreements and Misconduct
    Speakers: Judge Crigler, Judge Higgins, Judge Lannetti
    • How bad does it have to be to call the judge?
    • Judicial intervention in depositions
    • Sanctions and other remedies

MCLE Credit Caveat: The MCLE Board measures credits by the time you spend in attendance.

A code will be given at the end of the seminar, which must be written on your MCLE form.
