What is a Deposition?

A deposition is a question-and-answer session between the attorneys to a lawsuit and a witness. It is usually held in a lawyer’s office. ¬†Those present are:

1. the witness,
2. a court report to record your testimony,
3. lawyers for all parties to the lawsuit, and
4. the parties themselves or their representatives.

A judge does not attend the deposition and will not even review the deposition transcript unless called upon by one of the parties.

The procedure itself is straightforward.
