Deposition Tip: Take a Lawyer

I just finished taking a deposition in a case over in Chapel Hill in one of my Wake County cases.  It reminded me of something I learned early on in my practice: a deposition: if you have to give your deposition, take a lawyer along.

Today I was sitting across from an unrepresented witness.  The issue was the marital fault of my client’s spouse with this particular person over  a period of time.   I went in with a list of questions.  The witness was sworn in and I started going through my questions.
