What Your Orange County Personal Injury Attorney Does Before Trial

Here are just some things that need to be done.There is also a significant amount of legal research to be done, as your attorney needs to be familiar with all the statutes and case law that pertain to your case.
Your attorney will need to depose some of the other side’s witnesses. Deciding which witnesses to depose is a task in and of itself, as deposing all the witnesses is not possible. Your attorney will try to select witnesses who are key to the defendant’s case. These depositions need to be scheduled, and preparations need to be made for recording equipment or transcriber to be present. These recordings to transcriptions then need to be edited down to something usable in court.
The other side will want to depose some of your witnesses as well. Your attorney needs to coach these witnesses on how to properly testify and to accompany any witnesses giving depositions to make sure that the questions asked are appropriate.
Your attorney will need to review the evidence that the other side is presenting to make sure that it is appropriate. If the other side submits improperly gathered or otherwise inappropriate evidence, your attorney needs to file a motion to have that evidence excluded.
