"Great! Adverse Depositions: Principles and Principal Techniques"

Spot-on seminar…necessary to any and all trial lawyers to do their best. I would pay to hear Musante teach…at this rate, he is cheap. This is heads and tails above other seminars I've attended.

Joseph Sanchez, 30-yr atty

An informative and helpful seminar…better than the average "effective depo techniques". Seminar much better than others--it avoided the fluff.

Ryan Bentley, 1-yr atty, 100 adverse depos

I appreciated Musante's enthusiasm and passion for his subject. His multi-media approach with actual trial video clips was great.

Brad Blake, 17-yr atty, 250+ adverse depos

Captivating speaker…very informative seminar…can't wait to apply these concepts in my next deposition. No comparison with other seminars--this was great!

9-yr atty, 30+ adverse depos

Very helpful seminar…excellent speaker--entertaining and engaging with good examples. This is a new way of looking at depositions--refreshing new approach.

Leslie Phillips, 7-yr atty, 150+ adverse depos

Very good seminar…a totally new perspective on what I do on a regular basis. Excellent speaker. On a scale of 1-10, this seminar is an "8" (others I've attended have been "5-6").

17-yr atty, 200+ adverse depos

Excellent seminar--it caused me to seriously rethink the conventional wisdom for taking adverse depositions and mapping out an approach to take more effective ones. Superior seminar. Video clips were great…I wanted more!

John Petite, 13-yr atty, 50+ adverse depos

Fantastic seminar…excellent speaker. This seminar is much more thorough, insightful and original than others.

Bob Mandara, 6-yr atty, 50+ adverse depos

An insightful and entertaining seminar…excellent speaker--Musante was meant to be a teacher.

Elizabeth, 2-yr atty

A very helpful seminar…it gives me a lot to think about. I have been wasting a lot of time in my depositions. Very good speaker--humorous yet informative; he keeps the audience involved and alert. I stayed awake! Seminar much better than others.

Dawn Johnson, 9-yr atty

Good seminar…good speaker. Instead of all the war stories or rules I've seen before, this seminar had practical examples.

Thomas McDermott, 22-yr atty, 200-300 adverse depos

The seminar brought to the surface concepts I believe I should know in a manner I had not previously considered. Musante is energetic--his presentation and critical examination of real testimony helps carry his message. Musante's use of depositions and video presentation delivered the teaching points effectively.

William Robinson, 5-yr atty, 10 adverse depos

Very, very helpful seminar. Very good speaker. Among one of the most useful seminars.

Daniel Finney, Jr, 25-yr atty, 200+ adverse depos

Excellent seminar…excellent speaker. Great visuals.

Stephen Larson, 15-yr atty, 450 adverse depos

"The 25 Credibility Arguments for Deposition and Trial"

Highly practical seminar…highly skilled teacher. Video clips on point. I am motivated to better prepare myself to argue with the witness. This would be a good seminar for MATA to present.

18-yr atty, 100+ adverse depos

Excellent seminar even for a non-litigator. Presents logical approaches to attacking the credibility of a witness. Particularly helpful on forcing choices on witnesses and shaping arguments. Musante is very good; particularly appreciated use of real-life examples. Video clips helps keep interest of listeners (like good visual aids in trials).

Patrick Arnall

Excellent seminar…excellent speaker. Very interesting content presented in an extremely articulate manner.

Linda Wasserman, 15-yr atty, 20 adverse depos

Impressive seminar…superlative speaker. If basic premise is true, the logic was flawless.

33-yr atty, 100s of adverse depos

Excellent seminar…excellent speaker. Videos kept the session engaging and interesting. A very informative and excellent seminar. Great use of my time to attend…program was engaging.

N. Shirazi, 14-yr atty, 35 adverse depos

Very useful seminar in both summarizing what I already know but by expanding and supplementing. Musante is very entertaining and able to hold attention even during 7 hours of talking.

Dan Finney, 25-yr atty, 200+ adverse depos

A very highly necessary seminar. Musante has culled the needed skills to getting any expert witness to a science. He gives us the technique we need to be as effective as possible at exposing deception and underlying lies to better advocate for our clients and causes. This is an absolutely necessary course for all practitioners who litigate, old and new. Deposition is Trial. Thanks.
