As a trial lawyer, what is your mindset around deposition preparation? Today, we focus our discussion around that. Lawyers have different mindsets going into deposition preparation. You want to get the most value from every single case but it’s also important to do things using a humanistic approach.

At the end of the day, our mindset should be focused on helping our client as they go through seemingly difficult chapters in their lives. They’re probably going through something horrible, whether that’s related to employment, injury, or a business situation – that’s impacting their life. And as their lawyer, you’re there to help them deal with whatever legal situation they’re in. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • The different mindsets lawyers have when approaching deposition
  • Selling your case is a disappointing mindset
  • The importance of shifting your mindset and using a humanistic approach
  • How your 30-minute conversations reflect the value you want to have
