Deposition Day: What You Should Do to Make the Best Impression Under Oath

Deposition Day: What You Should Do to Make the Best Impression Under Oath

Deposition day is not something to fear, but it is something to prepare for. Cases are rarely won during a deposition. They can, however, be lost or severely devalued if you are not prepared for the process by your attorney. With a little bit of preparation, insight, and foresight, you can turn the intimidating nature of making a deposition and spin the situation to your advantage, and possibly the disadvantage of your opposition.

What is a Deposition?

A deposition is a question-and-answer session under oath. It provides the best opportunity to learn about the case and the persons involved. When a deposition is taken, from the perspective of an attorney, we are hoping to better understand the persons involved in the case, what they know, how they know it, what they don’t know, what they think, and why they believe what they believe. It is the best opportunity to show opposing counsel that you know your case and will stick to your understanding of your case.

How Can a Deposition Become Your Advantage?

Make a good impression by being respectful and direct during your deposition. Above all, know your case. Consistency in what you say shows that you are not just “making things up” or “guesstimating” about what happened. It lays a message out for the opposition that says you are serious about your case. If you are filing a personal injury claim, for example, a good deposition might influence the defending party to try to concede with a fair settlement, rather than get taken to court where they know they will likely lose.

At The Shrable Law Firm, P.C. in Albany, Georgia, we take the time to prepare our clients for their deposition. We know what the insurance companies will most likely ask, how they will ask it, and what their likely strategy will be. We know this because we prepare our client’s cases and evaluate the case just like the insurance company does. We share this insight with our clients before the deposition so they are prepared. In fact, Attorney Beau Shrable actively works on insurance defense cases as well as injury claims for plaintiffs. This duality of practice has made him one of the most trusted names in injury case management and litigation in all of Georgia.
