This methodology gives defense clients the actual experience of testifying and the opportunity to develop their own unique testifying skills in advance of the actual deposition or trial. As a result, clients are able to develop the tools and emotional strength they will need to testify clearly, confidently and truthfully. This unique approach has proven to significantly reduce or eliminate liability exposure.
