4 Reasons to Video conference Depositions

Video conference depositions

Video conferencing helps to make client communications as easy as possible and can enhance your depositions when recorded.

Why Video Conference a Deposition

Reduce Travel Time and Expense. Video and teleconferencing make it possible to gather testimonies of witnesses located at a distance, even out of state or out of the country.

  • Saves travel time – often days, not just hours – and avoids the hassle of air travel.
  • Saves potentially thousands of dollars, especially when employing expert witnesses located at a distance

Review the Deposition Over and Over. Videotaping the session can capture facial expressions, body language, attitude, involuntary reactions, even the tone used by the witnesses. Position witnesses and cameras to be able to see them from head to toe. A videotape can be viewed over and over enabling others who were not able to attend to see the session and for those that did, to possibly see things not initially caught.

(It’s important to note that conducting a deposition by video or teleconference is not the same as having it videotaped. You may need to clearly specify that the session is to be videotaped.)

Reduce aggravation. Witnesses are taking time out of their daily lives and schedules to be deposed, without being paid, too. Keeping the deposition close to their home can reduce aggravation with time away from work or the hassle of having to travel.

Reduce delays in the litigation process, especially when there are numerous people and travel schedules involved. And, it enables attorneys and witnesses who may be traveling to attend while on the road.

Today, technology basically enables you to be there when you cannot be there.
