Clients often ask...What happens in a deposition?
This is part one of a three-part blog series I’ll be doing on “What Happens in a Deposition?” As a lawyer, it’s easy to forget that most people will never even use the word “deposition” for their entire life. But, once someone becomes a client, a deposition is very likely to be something they’ll have to deal with. --Geoff Hamby
"Often we get asked about how to use normal deposition tools and tactics through these electronic mediums. How do we use documents with the witness? How do we read body language? How do we make sure the other attorney isn’t improperly communicating with the witness? These answers are all much simpler than they appear". - Geoff Hamby

It is important to have an accurate account of a deposition. Unless the court orders otherwise, the deposition may be recorded by sound, sound-and-visual, or stenographic means. Most lawyers have a court reporter record the testimony by stenographic means. At Bailey and Oliver, we have a videographer also record the deposition.
