Witness Preparation for Deposition and Witness Preparation for Trial

By Jan M. Spaeth Ph.D.

” ‘These DVDs provide real assistance to counsel in guiding witnesses through what can be a scary prospect. Not preachy or intimidating, these videos set just the right tone in providing guidance while inspiring confidence. After watching one of these programs, a witness should be much better prepared.’ ”
–Philip R. Higdon, Esq., Perkins, Coie, Brown & Bain, P.A.

“Now, one of the nation’s leading authorities on jury research and witness preparation, nationally-recognized litigation consultant Jan Mills Spaeth, Ph.D., has created two essential witness preparation DVDs to make sure you bring out the best qualities in your witnesses during their depositions and testimony.”

“This 2-DVD set contains one DVD focused exclusively on preparing the witness for a deposition, and another for preparing witnesses for trial. Both feature sample questions, positive and negative responses-some filmed in an actual courtroom setting, and stress the essentials for a credible, convincing testimony. Each DVD is accompanied by a witness take-away booklet which covers all the points on the DVD, and stresses again the basics of testifying.”
