Conducting Effective Witness Interviews

Gain an understanding of how to better conduct a witness interview and be able to identify the key information.

Many legal professionals underestimate the value of witness preparation. Taking the time to meet and talk to those individuals, who can make or break your case, is perhaps the best investment of time in any litigated matter. Additionally, understanding the process of witness preparation, whether it be for deposition or trial, is important. It is not only what is said, but the manner in which it is presented, that can influence the trier of fact's view of your case. This topic can assist you in identifying the material witnesses essential to your case and highlight methods of preparing said witnesses to assure that your client's position is stated accurately and in the best possible light.
