Preparing for trial takes precision. There are numerous steps that need to be executed properly with meticulous attention to detail. Deposition preparation is simply one of those steps. A deposition is testimony provided by a witness under oath to discover facts and / or to be used as evidence in court.
Depositions can be stressful and exhausting if you are not properly prepared. This often leads to contradictory testimony that can put a testifier at risk of being accused of perjury. If you are going to be deposed, allow our team of attorneys to help you prepare.
If you are preparing for a deposition, here are some ideas to keep in mind:
- Be prepared and relax.
- Take a moment, think before responding to the question.
- Make sure that you fully understand the question.
- Always tell the truth.
- If you are unsure of an answer, that is ok. Simply say that you do not remember.
- Stay calm. Don’t get upset.
Being prepared for a deposition is critically important as they hold the same weight as a testimony given at trial and may be entered into evidence during the trial.
