"Great! Adverse Depositions: Principles and Principal Techniques"

Exceptional! Musante walks on water with common sense and wit. Entertaining and informative. Encourages us to think outside the box once we have analyzed our key issues and to nail down the weaknesses by building a wall around the limits. This seminar is among the best.

Pat Zaharopoulos, 5-yr atty, 3-5 depos

Excellent practical content. Excellent instructor. This seminar's set of deposition rules is better than most...if I am able to implement them, they will make my depos better.

Albert Norman Shelden, 30-yr atty, 30 depos

Great! I cannot wait to use the new skills I acquired. Wonderful instructor. I think I was on the verge of reaching most of these concepts on my own. Having Musante's explanation and organization really confirmed it.

Anthony A. Sears, 14-yr atty, 50+ depos

Very good practical content. Sticks to the "big picture", so the points are fairly easy to remember. Musante was also very good. He keeps it lively and very interesting. This seminar is quite a bit better than other litigation-skills seminars I've taken.

Sara Gros-Cloren, 14-yr atty

One of the best, most useful MCLEs I've ever been to. Everyone should attend. Musante is very energetic and pointed. This seminar's set of rules is more pointed. I've used some but this hones and helps perfect the usefulness of the deposition.

Ron Wisniewski, 9-yr atty, 100-150 depos

Very good. Not only helpful regarding depositions but overall trial presentation/techniques. Much better than other like seminars.

Mark Brown, 12-yr atty, 120 depos

The practical content is excellent. The instructor was very well organized and made excellent use of the power point presentation. This course provided a unique view of the deposition process, incorporating new techniques into an old procedure.

Joe O'Heron, 22-yr atty, 300 depos

Seminar is well worth the $$. Invaluable tools presented. Excellent practical content, different and much more helpful than other courses. Musante is excellent/superb. He knows his stuff and delivers information in an entertaining and easily understandable manner with good examples. The Power Point and sound effects are a major plus!. I think these depo rules will allow me to go beyond a level achieved by most attorneys, i.e., beyond the Battleship Grid.

Outstanding! Musante is solid! Musante's teaching style combines elements of history, literature, law and strategy, with video-audio that held our attention all day.

Susan Orta, 1 depo

Very good. Better than others. Musante is excellent.

Lisa J. Brault, 9-yr atty, 0 depos

Extremely valuable. Musante is excellent, entertaining yet presents substantial info. I'll be changing my style to incorporate his rules, especially with focus on the "depo is trial" and "impeachment" rules.

Leslie Burgundy, 7-yr atty, 5-10 depos

Specific rules and suggestions were very helpful. Musante is excellent, good info well delivered. This seminar is at the top of the list, compared to others. I'm sure I'll apply what I learned today and it should result in better depos.

Kathleen Gnekow, 20-yr atty, 30 depos

Excellent practical content. Musante was first-rate. This seminar is among the best.

David Carrasco, 9-yr atty, 150-200 depos

Bob is definitely the best!

Sandra Moorehead, 20-yr atty, 200+ depos

Revolutionary and revelatory! Excellent practical content. Musante is very, very good. Best seminar compared to others.

Rick Thalhammer, 28-yr atty, 70 depos

Practical and entertaining...therefore memorable. Musante is excellent, entertaining and used good examples. Other seminars have focused more on prep; this one is more useful for responding to the process as it develops.


Very useful practical content. Now I just have to put the ideas into practice. Musante is very energetic, open to questions and encouraged challenges to the ideas while sticking to them. Some things I have done, others I have not. However, the seminar allowed me to compare what I have done with what I have seen others do and see the wisdom of his concepts.
