What is Deposition

A Deposition Services is an integral part of the discovery process.

A deposition is a form of legal questioning that takes place before a trial and is conducted under oath by the attorneys representing the parties involved. The testimony of the witness is recorded so that it can be used as evidence in the court proceeding.

The purpose is to discover what a witness knows before a trial or courtroom proceeding. That way, the attorneys will already know what the witness is going to say on the witness stand. It allows attorneys to prepare their line of questioning ahead of time, so they are not surprised by what the witness says.

Witnesses will speak different languages. Multilingual societies like the US have many languages. Witnesses may not speak English. During this, an interpreter will translate the witness's testimony since American legal proceedings use English.
