Video Depositions – A New Era

When a lawsuit is filed on your behalf, one event that our clients can expect is to participate in is have their deposition taken. This is essence a question and answer session that is conducted under penalty of perjury. Traditionally, this would be handled in-person at your attorney’s office or other agreed-upon location in the presence of a court reporter, attorneys and sometimes a videographer. 

Because of the emergency situation created by the spread of COVID-19, there has been growing support to take depositions by video conference, such as via Skype, Zoom, or other video conference software.

While there are obviously many good reasons for attorneys and our clients to be physically present, such as having the opportunity to observe the deponent’s demeanor, at the present time, these considerations should give way to public safety. Because of COVID-19, remote depositions must be considered for the foreseeable future in order to protect the injured client, the attorneys, and the community as a whole.

Phillips and Pelly Injury Attorneys are fully prepared to meet current demands of moving our clients’ cases along while ensuring public safety. In addition to depositions, we are equipped to attend prep meetings, mediations, and other matters that traditionally would require in-person attendance.
