This is vintage Roger Dodd!  One of his newest topics is "Depositions are Your Trial".  In this 65 minute zoom presentation. Dodd explains why this is so.  He shows how to make more of your cross-examinations at depositions - both live and on Zoom. Dodd illustrates an entire method to force the opponent and their experts into making Verbal Requests for Admissions at their depositions.  Not only do they make admission after admission, but thru the use of Constructive Cross-Examination (their witness but our narrative), they make admissions that support our narrative.  This makes settlement offers from our opponent faster and bigger!
