"Attacking the Expert's Opinion"

Very informative, practical and useful seminar. Musante is excellent...very entertaining and engaging. One of the best seminars I have attended. I was never bored (for once!). This seminar is much better and much more useful than others.

Kellie Murphy, 20 expert depos

Great information...I feel like I will use everything I learned today. Musante did a great job at crystallizing the information and making it manageable. This seminar will help improve the quality of my depos 1000%.

Lisa Nicolls, Murphy Austin et al

This seminar is excellent. Musante is phenomenal. This seminar is so much better than others that I no longer attend any others. There is no comparison.


Excellent seminar...provides useful tools for taking expert depositions and confirmed my suspicion that it makes no sense to leave rocks unturned. Musante is excellent...engaging...kept my interest and attention.

Extremely highly rated ever! Highest value of this seminar compared to others.

Peter Samuel, 500 expert depos, Samuel & Samuel, Fair Oaks

As a practical matter, Musante provided me with invaluable advice on tactical considerations regarding when to exploit an AE's inconsistencies at trial--depo--and also how to exploit personality characteristics. Musante has very high energy, stamina...he's entertaining, witty, interesting.

Anthony McClaren

Definitely useful seminar...excellent speaker. As an expert, I found this seminar more useful than others.


Excellent practical content. No comparison to other "expert" deposition seminars ... this is actually useful. Will improve my expert depos immensely.

Excellent, logical application of skills necessary to take and expert's deposition. Musante is excellent; keeps subject interesting with use of examples, analysis and a sense of humor. More practical and analytical than others. Enhances "experiential" learning by simplifying the thought process and enhancing listening skills.

James A. Bratton, 25+ expert depos

Excellent and useful practical content. Musante reflects a sincere effort to communicate and teach something of value. The "opinion attacks" were excellent and useful. The chart is a very impressive work; succinct, cogent and workable.

Max Luger, 100s expert depos

Much more practical than other litigation-skills seminars. Musante is very energetic and informative.

Matthew Cheever

Excellent program. Very helpful, efficient and compact. Excellent instructor. Distilled the content to its essence. Excellent discussion of "opinion attacks".

Christopher E. Judge, 20 expert depos

Very good, understandable and entertaining (always a plus!). Much better than other CLE seminars.

Celia Bernal, 15+ expert depos

Excellent, dynamic, coherent, honest and useful. I was surprised, just as with the "Adverse" seminar, that I could still learn new [expert] questions after 19 years.) Musante is very dynamic, personable and helpful. Makes "simple" things truly simple and straightforward. Far better than most other seminars.

Pete Pullen, 150 expert depos

Excellent! One of the best I've ever seen.

Anonymous, 50 expert depos

Excellent. Very good/entertaining and informative.

Outstanding. More comprehensive than other CLE seminars. Can't wait to try out the "Opinion" attacks.

Excellent seminar. Definitely more substantive than other half-day litigation-skills seminars. Super "Opinion" attacks.

Excellent practical content. Excellent instructor. Superior compared to other half-day seminars.

Anonymous, 5 expert depos

Excellent. Entertaining, informative, lots of really useful suggestions. Greatly exceeds others because it addresses new ideas, techniques that are not commonly discussed.


Good stuff! A+ instructor. Will improve my depos greatly.

Anonymous, 75 adverse depos

By far the best. Very applicable. Excellent instructor. First CLE I've attended not dominated by esoteric war stories.
