"Great! Adverse Depositions: Principles and Principal Techniques"

Practical content is valuable and necessary. This seminar's set of rules makes sense and will result in more powerful depositions. Has provided the tools to restructure deposition practice, and restructuring will provide better impeachment.

Sherri Eveleth, 5-yr atty, 2 adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar

Excellent practical content; more valuable than a Rules of Civil Procedure course. Musante kept my interest for the entire day. This is a "what works," not a "how it works," seminar.

John Heids, 1-yr atty, 5 adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar

Much better than others. Very good practical content and Musante is excellent. I will now have a more defined action plan for my adverse depositions.

Shirl Mora James, 11-yr atty, 50+ adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar

Excellent compared to other like seminars. Interesting power point presentation. Liked the examples from actual trials and interviews.

Nebraska State Bar Attorney

Much, much more practical than other seminars; much, much different. Will improve the quality of my depos a great deal.

Brad Roth, 21-yr atty, 250 adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar

This seminar's depo rules put my old rules on their head! I expect that my depo questions will substantially improve.

25-yr atty, 50 adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar

Excellent practical content; excellent instructor. Will be helpful to my adverse depos, particularly the importance of critical listening skills and forcing answers to match the questions.

Gene Summerlin, 12-yr atty, 100+ adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar

Information presented is extremely relevant to why the deposition is important. Musante is excellent; he has found his calling! He has given me tools to organize and prepare much more effectively and efficiently.

Dianne DeLair Canto, 3-yr atty, 3 adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar

Excellent = techniques that can be applied, rules to apply to a guideline. Musante is excellent. Musante proves his claims and is entertaining.

Linda Bowers, 3-yr atty, 5 adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar

Very practical! I look forward to putting it to use. Musante is entertaining and substantive at the same time.

10-yr Nebraska State Bar Attorney, 8-10 adverse depos

Excellent dynamic speaker who utilizes audio/visual effects well to set forth his points. You can never spend too much time learning methods to lock down witnesses.

Kurt Maahs, 9-yr atty, 50+ adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar

Both practical and useful. Completely turned prior teachings on their ends. I will rethink how I take depositions.

Jay Elliott, 11-yr atty, 40+ adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar

Great practical content; excellent instructor Will vastly improve my adverse depos; great framework for planning a depo. Very worthwhile seminar, great instructor, interesting content, entertaining presentation. Wonderful!

I am a tax lawyer. I take seminars that have little to do with my practice ... ostensibly! It always pays off. I would take this again and pay for it! I expect to read the outline and put it into practice for depos scheduled next month.

Herbert Sampson, 28-yr atty, 70+ depos, Nebraska State Bar

Musante is entertaining, logical and persuasive. Hopefully this will give me a leg up on future depositions against more experienced and seasoned attorneys (and give me confidence even though I'm a "newbie").

Nichole Bogen, 2 mo-atty, Nebraska State Bar

Musante is extremely engaging and charismatic. He communicates with clarity and is "choosy" with words for easy comprehension.

Niki Greenwood, 1-yr atty, Nebraska State Bar

Very informative, really enjoyed how common-sense and logical the content was. Musante is very logical, good speaking skills, and very good practical examples. Compared to other seminars, much higher content of real-world usable information.

Nebraska State Bar Attorney

Head and shoulders better than others I have attended in the past.

Nebraska State Bar Attorney

Very helpful to see rules spelled out - never saw any in law school, which was just four years ago. Musante is very effective; much more concrete and useful. Since I followed one of the "stupid orthodoxies," this has turned my approach upside-down.

Kathryn Folts, 4-yr atty, 15-20 adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar Attorney

Very practical, real-world advice. Excellent graphics to maintain interest. I believe we have been taught for too many years only about the discovery value of depositions, not the trial value.

Dave Barron, 19-yr atty, 75 adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar Attorney

I feel like I've had an epiphany/awakening. It's all so simple, really, but Musante put it all together. We've all used bits and pieces of what he teaches, but not comprehensively. Extremely helpful!

Mary Garner, 10-yr atty, 75-100 adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar Attorney

Invaluable. Far superior to others.

Barbara Hobson, 10-yr atty, 150 adverse depos, Nebraska State Bar Attorney

Very helpful; I'm glad to learn these lessons early in my practice so I can start off doing things the right way. I expect to see a great amount of improvement in my depos.
