A deposition in Placer County consists of a witness answering an attorney’s questions under oath outside of a courtroom. It is a common discovery technique for uncovering helpful information in preparation for a trial. Depositions typically take place in a conference room with a court reporter present and might last several hours or even all day. Anyone deposed can have a lawyer with them. Because depositions are given under oath, a lawyer might introduce deposition testimony later at trial, such as when a witness disappears, or to impeach the credibility of the witness. Depositions are common in contested divorces.
