Synopsis: Take the mystery out of your deposition with this comprehensive guide.

Getting deposed? Here's the book you need.

Nolo's Deposition Handbook is for anyone who will conduct a deposition or will be deposed; providing all the information, tips and instructions you need whether or not you're represented by a lawyer. Packed with concrete suggestions and examples, the book explains how to:

  • arrange a convenient date
  • prepare for the deposition
  • respond to questions with aplomb
  • ask the right questions

    You'll even learn the three "golden rules" for answering questions and the trick questions lawyers often use to influence testimony.

    Written by two UCLA law professors and attorneys, Nolo's Deposition Handbook provides all the information you need to sail through the deposition process with confidence.

    A perfect book for law students, lawyers, legal assistants, witnesses, expert witnesses and people who represent themselves in court.

    The 5th edition contains updated statutes, cases and rules, plus new material on "electronic discovery", which applies to information stored in computers, including records and emails.
  • Review: Court cases are never as quick and tidy as television dramas would have us believe. In fact, most civil disputes are settled long before a judge has a chance to pound a gavel. That's why pretrial fact-finding procedures such as depositions play an increasingly important role in legal quarrels. In fact, it's not uncommon for a deposition to be the only testimony given. All of this explains why Nolo's Deposition Handbook can be such a useful resource. For the uninitiated, depositions are the process that enable either party in a lawsuit to question the other, as well as other witnesses, under oath before a trial begins. To prepare readers, authors (and attorneys) Paul Bergman and Albert Moore do a commendable job of dealing with real-life issues, such as what to do--and not to do--in preparation for a deposition, what to do if you're asked to bring documents to a deposition, how far you can be required to travel, and how to deal with trick questions that many lawyers love to ask. Three "Golden Rules" are also offered to help people through the deposition process. Put simply, the rules are to listen to the entire question and then answer only that question; answer truthfully and completely; and if you don't understand a question, don't answer it. The tone of the entire book acknowledges--without being condescending--that legal arenas are an area where novices feel quite underqualified. For example, the authors warn against engaging in seemingly harmless chit-chat with a companion before and during breaks in a deposition. The reason is one that most non-lawyers would be hard-pressed to imagine: Deposing counsel can ask the companion to reveal what the deponent said. Of course, readers intrigued by that line of thinking will thoroughly enjoy the last half of the book, which is devoted to those interested in representing themselves in legal matters. --John Russell
