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. Your witness only needs to watch these DVD's to be much better prepared for trial or deposition. A take-home booklet will further reinforce the lessons learned.
This 2-DVD set, now completely subtitled in Spanish and Chinese, contains one DVD focused exclusively on preparing your witness for a deposition, and another for preparing witnesses for trial. Simply play the DVDs for your witnesses and they will be more informed, confident, and comfortable in testifying. Step away and let your witness view the video, then return and talk about the specific facts of your case; you'll save valuable billable time by letting these great DVDs teach your witnesses the very basics of testifying at deposition or at trial.
The DVDs address what the witness should expect in terms of environment (courtroom or conference room), questioning (direct and cross-examination), procedure (what to do when a lawyer objects, for example), and good, conservative advice for attire, demeanor, grooming, and attitude. Both DVDs 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 take-home witness booklet which covers all the points on the DVD, and stresses again the basics of testifying. These booklets, intended to be used as takeaways for your witnesses, are also available separately in packages of 25. Now you can prepare witnesses for both depositions and trial for the price of just a few billable hours.
Preparing witnesses can take valuable time away from your firm, while opening the door for a catastrophic witness stand error. These DVDs are also a perfect tool for witness consultants, to supplement their witness preparation.
