Preparing Your Client for Deposition [00:59:17]

A crucial aspect of most affirmative cases is the Plaintiff’s deposition. This session will focus on practical considerations when preparing your client to be deposed.  These issues include working with clients with Limited English Proficiency, how to prepare for objections, attorney-client privilege, working with exhibits, and privacy issues. The session will also touch on pre-litigation research you can conduct, including public records act requests and FOIA requests, that can be critical to adequately preparing your client for their deposition.
