"Great! Adverse Depositions: Principles and Principal Techniques"

The content not only makes perfect sense...actual, useful examples are provided in framing your case theory with impeachable testimony. Information was communicated clearly. Musante managed to keep your interest with actual real life examples. Very, very good seminar. Without question, there is a definitive, logical manner to conduct an adverse deposition. This seminar will change my approach to conducting depositions.

Walter Shalvoy, Jr., 5-yr atty, 70 adverse depositions

An excellent, entertaining and informative seminar. Very practical and easy to follow. Musante not only provided valuable information, but he constantly showed how to apply that information in real life situations. Very high quality seminar.

An absolutely awesome seminar. Musante is a very experienced litigator and good teacher...he gave us a theory and good structure. I now have a theory so I can create good questions...lawyers are rule-orieinted and theoretical.

The teaching points seem extremely sound. I can't wait to put them into practice, even if only to test drive.

Great seminar…good use of visuals and audio to keep the material interesting. Great speaker.

Jill Alward, 1-yr atty, 2 adverse depos

Excellent seminar…excellent speaker. The video clips were useful and important, in part because the material requires illustration by real life examples to be fully understood. This seminar added substance and further practical meaning to the points presented in the Whack! Seminar.

A practical and valuable seminar. Musante is a very effective speaker.

I recommend this seminar to any litigator. Musante is excellent--he is able to communicate effectively with the class. His video clips were "right on".

Anonymous, 10-yr atty, 100-150 adverse depos

This seminar is very good as depositions are frequent and these skills are not taught. Musante has excellent teaching skills. Wish I had more teachers like him in law school. The video clips were essential to the teaching points. Kept me interested.

Robert Gallo, 7-yr atty, 20 adverse depos

"A" seminar. Musante is very good.

Gary Kevorkian, 5-yr atty, 6 adverse depos

This seminar expanded upon what was taught in the Whack! Class. It fleshed out the elements taught already…yesterday was the "melody"; today were the "lyrics". Musante interweaves examples of the teaching points by referring to the testimony of prominent figures in criminal trials. Video clips were entertaining and powerful teaching examples.
