Oh man, that's entertaining. I'm sure glad my legal career didn't involve this type of "entertainment."

Oh I had a few depos that went like that over the years. Mostly I was in the position of sitting back with popcorn enjoying the show but sometimes had to engage with it. I always wanted to take 3 showers afterwards.

My usual tact in depositions is to make the witness believe they know the subject they are talking about better than I do.

That’s when they say too much. I’ve been very successful in doing so. I even had a doctor on a medical malpractice case admit to his malpractice, which never happens. Lulled him into a false sense of security and then as soon as the opening was there, WHAM, down comes the hammer. He never saw it coming.

I remember being deposed and opposing counsel asked me to explain the financial analysis for a real estate development. When I finished walking him through the formulas and rational I asked if he understood, he admitted he didn't have a clue how the financial model worked.

I've been deposed several times in instances where my company had disputes with suppliers and I wrote the contract or was involved with the negotiation or management of the contract.

The first couple times, I was advised by our corporate council -- answer the question directly, truthfully and succinctly -- yes or no, if possible. Do not volunteer anything -- do not engage in any chit-chat. When they finish with the questions, get up and leave -- don't hang around with the lawyers.

I never ended up in court, so I guess I did OK.

All good advice. I always tell my clients that a deposition isn't an opportunity for them to help their case, its an opportunity for the opposition to hurt their case. I always like people to keep in mind that no matter what, its an adversarial proceeding and should be treated as such.

Not once in 16 years have I had a case succeed because of, or be made stronger by, anything my client said in a deposition.
