Are you really prepared for that deposition, or are you falling into the trap of catchy YouTube tutorials and oversimplified online advice? Join me today as I navigate this treacherous landscape, discovering the dangerous pitfalls along the way. From the barrage of legal jargon to misinformation, these videos can lead you down a path of confusion, potentially harming your case. Using Texas law as an example, I call out the issues stemming from this online maelstrom of well-meaning but often misguided advice.

But worry not, there is a better way! I advocate for a personalized approach to deposition preparation – tailoring strategies to your specific case needs, rather than using a one-size-fits-all solution. Listen in as I share my tips for successful trial preparations, focusing on client management and the delicate task of one-on-one preparation. 

Be cautious of clients seeking advice online and learn how to guide them away from this problematic practice. Whether you’re a budding lawyer or a seasoned veteran, you’ll find valuable insights into crafting unique strategies that cater to your case’s specifics.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Issues with legal advice videos
  • The importance of one-on-one client preparation and client management
  • The danger in short-format videos with less context and less explanation
  • Personalized preparation for successful trials
