Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Every day people give testimony under oath without knowing the legal rules or having some practice in how to listen and respond effectively to questions they will be asked by attorneys or judges. This handbook is written to help the inexperienced person better prepare to give testimony. It also answers many basic questions, such as what the difference is between a deposition and trial testimony, why a deposition is taken and who will be attending, what kinds of questions will be asked and how to formulate effective answers, what to do if one's memory fails, how to get through a difficult cross-examination, how to avoid clever lawyer traps or attempts to put words in one's mouth, the best ways to control anxiety and worry, how to dress to make a good impression, and what demeanor is appropriate or inappropriate for the deposition and courtroom. The reader learns what to expect, which means he or she will be better prepared to face any questioner with confidence and a realistic understanding of what will happen at a deposition, hearing or trial, and why. In short, the reader will be a better, more effective truth-teller. The book includes many examples demonstrating the principles and guidance that apply in a variety of situations.
