How to Prepare and Defend Your Client in a Deposition

Part One of Steno's Mastering Depositions Webinar Series

The most significant event in any case for the plaintiff or defense is your client’s deposition. Your client’s performance can either hurt or help your ability to prove the case.

In this webinar, you’ll learn tangible tactics that will aid in preparing your client in advance and strategies for defending them during their deposition and help ensure your client performs well.


Depositions play a key role in the litigation process, and many litigators spend more hours in depositions than trials. Harvey R. Friedman is a Partner at Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger and Adjunct Professor at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law with 45 years of litigation, and 20 years of teaching experience, and taken more than 1,000 depositions.

This is the first of four events in the Mastering Depositions webinar series. Download the session materials here.

So the last thing on your mind should be worrying about the details of depositions. Don’t let financing or technical hurdles stand in your way.
