5 Best Practices for an Examination for Discovery

Court-related proceedings can be intimidating. Here are some techniques to help you navigate through the process.

Understanding the Context

Ask a lawyer to repeat a question you may not have understood. Be as attentive as possible and do not guess as to context.

Remain Honest and Consistent

Remain honest. Bear in mind that what you say is being recorded, and that you may have to give an account in the very same manner at another time.

Stay Calm

Do your best not to appear argumentative. Remember that it is the lawyer’s job to present the arguments, and not yours.

Take a Break

Feel free to request a break should you feel that you are becoming tired or drained or need to gather your thoughts.
