An explanation of the agenda topic process for the Annual Policy Meeting by Vice President and Director of Membership Yvonne DeAntoneo and Association Leadership Training Coordinator Brenna Dickey, RP.

Many legal professionals underestimate the value of witness preparation. Taking the time to meet and talk to those individuals, who can make or break your case, is perhaps the best investment of time in any litigated matter. Additionally, understanding the process of witness preparation, whether it be for deposition or trial, is important. It is not only what is said, but the manner in which it is presented, that can influence the trier of fact’s view of your case. This topic can assist you in identifying the material witnesses essential to your case and highlight methods of preparing said witnesses to assure that your client’s position is stated accurately and in the best possible light.
