The effective deposition: techniques and strategies that work
The mechanics of taking & defending depositions are simple, but to avoid mistakes you must be thoroughly familiar with the applicable rules. Small or inadvertent mistakes can cost money & time & prevent the use of valuable deposition testimony on behalf of your client. The authors help you master the critical deposition skills you need to compete in the courtroom. The revised second edition incorporates the 2000 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which focus on the scope of discovery, the length of depositions & what is required by the mandatory disclosures.
