Click here to watch a sample.
The catalog is divided into 12 sections each beginning with a vignette, or series of vignettes, and ending with commentary from the authors, David Malone and Peter Hoffman. From stipulations at the beginning of depositions to witness preparation and gaining admissions to objections you will see it take place in a professionally filmed demonstration then listen to the authors give valuable pointers based on what you just watched.
Depositions remain a critical element of your practice, regardless of whether you face trial or alternative dispute resolution. With the increasing trend toward non-trial resolutions, depositions are being used more and more in motions, negotiated settlements, mediations, arbitrations, and dismissals. The key is to be prepared no matter which resolution you face.
