"Expert Witness Pointers for Video Depositions."
Advice written for experts (novice or not) to read. Advice written to train experts to testify effectively in a video deposition.
Many expert witnesses have never testified in any deposition. More experts have never testified "live and on camera". They are waiting for you to give them advice on their twin terrors of a deposition plus a camera. Give them video deposition advice in clear format, with helpful tips and tactics.
Expert Witness Pointers for Video Depositions is a readable (and succinct) "how to" manual for witnesses who are faced with being "on camera" in a video-deposition. Buy one for yourself, so you know what it says. That allows you to train your expert.
That's what most of our buyers do. They buy this advice article and give it to their expert.
But for maximum help to your expert --- you may want to include a talk with your expert to tell him/her:
You might even want to help them get it into their computer (it comes in PDF format) while you conference with them!
We've had experts buy this form directly. We get feedback from them (one comment came from an expert witness in psychology) telling us this is no-nonsense advice that has helped them be better witnesses!
Dear Fellow Attorney,
If you have ever had a good witness look bad on a video deposition, you know the need for coaching the expert witness on the needed skills for being "videotaped".
But you don't want to take the time, and the potential witness really will be overloaded listening to you give an hour lecture in your office on "How to talk to a camera".
That is why I developed my "Expert Witness Pointers for Video Depositions."
This is a tremendous resource for you --- and for your expert witness. You will either give this skill builder to your witness every time you need to take his/her video deposition to present at trial or, alternatively, you'll suggest your expert buy this form. Moreover, you will do the same (give it to the expert or have the expert buy a copy independently) every time the adverse attorney sends you a notice that she will be deposing your expert and recording it by video.
Most attorneys do not give the expert witness facing a video deposition the help they want. Why?
But you can be different!
What if I could hand you a specialized camera-wise set of deposition pointers for your witness? And what if this 11 page instruction set was an easy and inexpensive item?
Our Expert Witness Pointers for Video Depositions gives your expert witness a take-home set of instructions. It's short. They will read it. They will be better witnesses. Either suggest they buy it independently, or else send it out to them before you get together with him/her for deposition preparation.
When you see your expert witnesses for video pre-deposition conferences, they will have had the benefit of thinking about:
Expert Witness Pointers for Video Depositions gives take home instructions and training in the Manner of Testimony, to eliminate fatal fumbling. Expert Witness Pointers for Video Depositions builds confidence and technique in answering questions at the video-taped deposition. We show you the way to make your expert witness at ease (it's part of our ExpertEase™ series). Help your witness react properly to being on the receiving end of the double barrels of a camera lens and an adverse attorney's questions.
The fact is, just the FEELING of your witness that you care enough to give help on how to look good must be worth $23. Consider your small investment a little "emotional insurance policy".
Not only will you get a great testimony preparation tool, you get a time-saving tool for you.
This is your invitation to become a part of the attorneys who take advantage of this power tool for only $23.
All The Best,
Leonard Bucklin, Civil Trial Attorney
