Depos: How to Master the Deposition (FL)

Audio program! (check our CLE Programs page for live versions)

Depositions are not a “one size fits all” process. Good depositions are like art. They take thought, skill and patience—and creativity—from start to finish. Our expert litigators will guide you through the nuanced art of the depo, from understanding the differences between trial and discovery depos to dealing with hostile witnesses and difficult opposing counsel.

And that’s not all. You’ll also find out when to call the judge and when it can be avoided. Do not go into your next deposition unprepared. Let us teach you the methods that have helped our experts succeed.

This comprehensive program will provide you with strategies to take and defend better depositions both before and during trial.

The program starts with a thorough overview of your purpose and possible goals, with a clear focus on providing you with strategies, how to deal with the unexpected things that happen and even who should attend and why. Faculty will discuss how to handle documents and exhibits and will give you tips on how to ensure you get the record you need.

You’ll learn how to best prepare your witness, ethical issues to avoid, and what to do with the corporate and expert depos as well as federal deposition rule (30)(b)(6).

The program ends with an in-depth discussion designed to help you deal with the worst part of the depo – the difficult witness and and difficult opposing counsel

At the end, you’ll hear the faculty conduct a demonstration incorporating the techniques taught, that is then followed with an analysis of the demo.

Having argued contested multi-million dollar commercial disputes in state and federal courts in Florida, Texas and New York, Earnest continuously seeks to resolve conflict long before it can evolve into expensive or protracted litigation.

Earnest strives to identify and reconcile potential issues quickly so they don’t snowball into actual obstacles to his clients’ business success.

A dedicated problem solver and counselor, Earnest focuses on meeting his client’s business objectives while creating buy-in and synergy when it comes to navigating beyond conflict.

However, if trial becomes unavoidable, Earnest has years of trial and appellate advocacy experience. He has argued cases to multiple Florida district courts of appeal and is certified to practice before the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court. Earnest has also directed numerous court-ordered mediated settlement sessions and contractually-mandated arbitration proceedings. Finally, Earnest has spent years serving as a civil hearing officer and special magistrate on more than 5000 contested cases, an experience that has helped him to recognize, critique and articulate a winning argument for his clients.

As a result of Earnest’s experience in civil trial practice, commercial dispute resolution, construction litigation, insurance litigation and banking and financial services litigation, he has also served as an adjunct professor at the collegiate and law school levels in civil litigation, construction law, business law, business organizations, commercial transactions and creditor’s rights. Earnest has lectured to Fortune 500 companies and state, local and national trade organizations. Additionally, Earnest has authored articles in the areas of contract law, construction liens, dispute resolution and bid protests.
