Legal Depositions: What Are They?

A deposition is a discovery tool in which opposing parties can ask questions of the other side under oath. These questions and answers are usually taken down verbatim by a transcriptionist so that the other party at trial can use the statements.
 
Before giving this deposition, all the materials and potential issues in your case should be thoroughly discussed with your lawyer. This enables you to be prepared ahead of time and anticipate what questions you will be asked and what the other lawyer will intend to accomplish by taking your deposition. Your lawyer can also take the deposition of the other side or other witnesses in the case. This is extremely helpful in preparing for trial because it will then be known what each party will testify to at trial. If that party testifies differently than in their deposition, their prior inconsistent statement in the deposition can be used to hurt the case.
