    Getting deposed can seem as mysterious and complicated as the tango. What are the right moves? The subtle signals to send? Is it possible to make it through without getting stepped on? The new, easy-to-follow guide to the entire deposition process, The Deposition Handbook is one guide that won't leave users sweaty-handed.The Deposition Handbook addresses witnesses, parties, experts and non-experts who will have their deposition taken; providing all the information, tips and instructions they need whether or not they are represented by a lawyer. Packed with concrete suggestions and examples, the book explains how to arrange a convenient date, prepare for the deposition and respond to questions with aplomb. The Deposition Handbook even includes the three "golden rules" for answering questions and points out the trick questions lawyers often use to try to influence testimony. Finally, the book discusses the questions one can refuse to answer and how to testify at a videotaped deposition.The Deposition Handbook provides a separate chapter for experts, which explains the expert's involvement in helping the lawyer to prepare for the deposition. It also covers how the expert should prepare for the deposition and answer questions by the deposing lawyer; and how the other side will try to challenge the expert's opinion and establish that the expert is biased during the deposition. The Deposition Handbook also addresses anyone who is a prose- either a person who wishes to defend her own deposition or the deposition of another person; or to take a deposition herself. Once again, the book explains, with numerous concrete examples and suggestions, how to: schedule and prepare for the deposition; question the witness, make and respond to objections, respond to improper behavior by the other side's lawyer, depose the other side's expert witness, take a videotaped deposition and depose a witness favorable to his or her case to preserve deposition testimony for use at trial. Written by two UCLA law professors and attorneys, The Deposition Handbook enables anyone who has been deposed to sail through the deposition process smoothly, confidently--and with only one left foot.
