Deposition Techniques and Strategy with David Markowitz
Thursday, June 9, 9 a.m.-4:15 p.m.
6.25 general CLE or practical skills credits
Oregon State Bar Center, Tigard

Depositions can make or break your case, and this is your chance to learn from a master. For more than 20 years David Markowitz has been studying deposition and trial techniques and has presented dozens of seminars to improve the skills of practicing attorneys. David will share important goals to accomplish, including avoiding undesired results. Learn the value of question structure and how to deal with evasive and incomplete answers. The most important questions and techniques the best lawyers use will be covered, including a key component of any deposition: knowing when to stop asking questions. With his keen ability to communicate and persuade, David will demonstrate powerful, practical methods for getting the most out of your depositions, including the best ways to defend depositions and effectively use depositions at trial. Whether you are new to trial practice or want to refresh your deposition skills, this presentation by one of Oregon’s litigation lions is an opportunity not to be missed.
