"Attacking the Expert's Opinion"

Excellent compared to other CLEs. Among the best practical skills courses I have attended. Musante is excellent; engaging and humorous.

Bart Hollander, 5 expert depos

Outstanding practical content and outstanding instructor! Outstanding and very effective use of multimedia and anecdotal materials. Great "how-not-to" material.

Hermen Yee

Excellent practical content. Excellent instructor. Unique; different than others in terms of using words/logic to impeach. Provides a logical context to ask questions and treat deposition as trial.

David Rubin, 9-10 expert depos, Rubin & Oriel

The best. Topnotch instructor. Very different from other CLEs; fast-paced, realistic and thorough. No war stories, no criticism. The use of Dr. Baden's testimony very creative, a terrific teaching tool.

Maureen Cushing, 50 expert depos

Excellent practical content. I wish I had approached my experts in trial with this type of detailed analysis! Excellent discussion of "Opinion" attacks.


This was a superb seminar with practical content that I believe will prove to be helpful to me. Musante was excellent. Very logical approach to "Opinion" attacks.


Best CLE so far. Musante is excellent. Honest, clear, no b.s. Useful sharp analysis.


The material is very useful and Musante teaches good techniques to apply the information. He uses good examples and pulls it all together at the end. Musante is straightforward and clear. The use of multimedia presentation in both seminars has been a very effective teaching tool.

Amy Royal

Excellent practical content. Excellent instructor. This seminar taught us to use the expert's against his opinion, rather than counseling us to learn enough to take on expert on his own terms. (May be ideal, but not realistic.)

Juliana Rice

Excellent and dynamic instructor. Excellent on "Opinion" attacks. Very effective teaching tools.


Practical content will be useful in future depositions of experts. Mr. Musante is good, high intensity. I expect that it will certainly improve the quality and enable me to challenge the basis of the opinion and go beyond just determining what the opinion is.


Very useful practical content. More valuable than other CLEs. Excellent instructor.

Anonymous, 10 expert depos

Extremely helpful. Musante is impressive. The use of Dr. Baden's testimony was very effective. I hope and expect it will improve the quality of my expert depos.


I expect this to be extremely useful. "Opinion" attacks very thorough and helpful


A great nuts-and-bolts approach to an often overlooked event.
