Editorial Reviews

When a lawsuit is filed, each side is allowed certain types of information-seeking methods, one of which is the taking of oral depositions of any person that can be compelled to give testimony (parties, witnesses, etc.).

The Deposition process is important in learning what a witness would testify to if called upon, because a well-prepared trial attorney tries to avoid asking questions he or she does not already know the answers to.

This begs the question: if the attorney already knows the answer, then why ask the question at trial? This is done to have the client's side of the case told by independent witnesses (other than a relative, close business associate, or friend) having no financial or emotional stake in the trial's outcome and therefore no incentive for telling anything but the truth.

It them becomes the trial attorney's responsibility to re-assemble all favorable answers into a logical order for presentation to the trier of fact (judge or jury) during the summation (closing argument).
