What is a deposition?

I’m Herb Friedman of Friedman Law Offices in Lincoln, Nebraska. If you file a lawsuit, sooner or later the opposing attorney is going to want to take your deposition. A deposition is part of the rules which give all parties the right to discover the facts, and is basically a question and answer session under oath before a Court Reporter, which is then transcribed. Depositions these days are also frequently video-taped. Your lawyer and the lawyer for the other party are present during the deposition, and the other lawyer will ask you a series of questions concerning your case. Your deposition is the most important part of your case. The testimony you give in a deposition can be and usually is used in the trial of your lawsuit. Your lawyer will spend time with you before the deposition in order to help you prepare.

If you have any questions, please call Friedman Law Offices at 800-876-1093. There is never a charge to find out if we can help you (find out if you have a case).
