Every case has a client and cases roll into litigation. This means there’s going to be a client deposition. This is a resource we have in every case. In this episode, we dive deeper into preparing your client for deposition, why this is important, and some of the things you can do to help your clients prepare better.
Specifically, we’re breaking down deposition preparation into three large groups. We want to do the heavy lifting outside the conference room where the deposition will happen by spending enough time with our clients and having tough conversations about the case.
Now, there’s a lot of different truth out there and people can paint their own truth (even if it’s not factually backed up). That’s why clients have to feel comfortable and understand what we mean when we say we want the truth and the truth will set you free. We want to focus on helping our clients tell the truth.
That’s what deposition prep is all about. We want to make sure our clients are walking in with the right mindset and that they understand the right set of rules, what’s going to happen and why, and what everybody’s role is. We want to use the right tools and techniques to help them gain clarity of thought, thereby improving the trajectory of the case.
