Good refresher for the seasoned lawyer, especially statutorily exempt witnesses. Well done Gentlemen.

Great for new attorneys, especially plaintiffs' side.

Presenters were great.

Valuable insight into depositions. A little general at times but filled in some areas for me as a relatively new litigator.

Enjoyed Quinton's and Jeffrey's points of view, their do's and don'ts.

Excellent presentation. Good practical info. Helpful review.
