"Great! Adverse Depositions: Principles and Principal Techniques"

Excellent … the material encapsulates a procedure which is repeatable and will allow me to ferret out information. Musante’s rapid-fire presentation leaves no room for non-relevant questions … very entertaining.

Don Trimble, 11-yr atty, 50 depos

Musante is one of the better teachers I have had…he’s energetic, knowledgeable, interesting and informative. I believe the content of his seminar is extremely practical and will prove to be an effective “how-to” resource as I outline and plan for future depositions.

Alison Ryan, 2-yr atty, 2 depos

Musante’s seminar is much more practical and useful than most CLE seminars I have attended. Very relevant and illustrative examples. Liked the straightforwardness and “no BS” language. Loved the video clips.

My head is spinning! Musante is very entertaining … I haven’t paid this much attention in a seminar of this length in a while.

This seminar will help me to formulate a plan and anticipate effectively the course and conduct of a deposition. Musante is very good, kept the course moving, generated interest and thought by use of real cases.

Joseph Fernald, 15-yr atty

Good information; excellent instructor. Will hopefully help the quality of my adverse depos a great deal.

Matt Harris, 3-yr atty, 25 adverse depos

Entertaining and informative. Better than other full-day litigation seminars.

Edwin Rawson, 1-yr atty

Highly and immediately useful. Musante is very effective; concrete and informative examples. It should improve my depos a great deal by treating them as trial testimony/prep in all cases.

The content changed my conception of how to properly conduct an adverse deposition. I will now view the adverse deposition as if it were a cross-examination at trial.

David A. Billions, 2.5-yr atty, 50 adverse depos

Provided great tips for young litigators to use in developing deposition skills. Much better than other full-day litigation seminars.

Robert approaches this issue with the passion and persuasiveness of an evangelist. He is explaining the lessons that my elder partners have learned over 50 years of practice in a way that explains the logic behind their years of successful experience.

Excellent program overall. Will be extremely helpful.

Great practical application in an area that affects every case. This seminar sets specific goals to achieve in an adverse depo and what to do with the information once obtained.
