In this episode, let’s take a backtrack to reflect on how I got to this whole spot of podcasting. I’m also sharing lessons we can all take away and use in witness preparation and coaching.

Witness coaching may sound negative because you might think you’re just coaching them on what to say. But try to look at this in a different way and turn this from a different angle. Witness coaching is really about seeing things that the other person can’t see that they’re doing. 

Additionally, an overconfident witness can end up getting tripped up really quickly on a cross-exam. And so, we want to be able to prepare people and coach witnesses to do the best they possibly can.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • My journey as a trial lawyer in depositions
  • My memory of having to testify in a restraining order hearing at 17
  • The importance of witness coaching
