Program Description

We have all seen the expert interrogators in cop shows tricking suspects into revealing their innermost secrets and confessing to crimes. That is exactly what opposing counsel tries to do in deposition and trial. Better understanding the rules of evidence, procedure, and deposition process will help you avoid the traps that skilled litigators lay for witnesses.
