It was not very long ago that Victoria lawyer James A.S Legh talked us through the process of an Examination for Discovery. The examination for discovery is an important pre-trial proceeding that occurs in almost every civil lawsuit. Questions are asked, and answers are given under oath.
An examination for discovery is an important part of any trial, and for this reason, Mr. Legh is back to drive the point home. Preparation is key to a successful examination for discovery.
Prepare, Prepare, Prepare
Hopefully, this weeks video has given us an idea of what to expect from a good lawyer before the examination for discovery takes place. A good lawyer will always attempt to make the preparation as simple as possible, while providing all the tools necessary for the task at hand.
It’s also important to remember that this is not a test. You will not be required to remember every detail of a case. Some questions may include more detail than you should be reasonably expected to remember. In these cases, you can depend on your lawyer to fill in the gaps, and supply an answer within a reasonable amount of time.
By being prepared for the examination however, you provide little ammunition to the opposing party to use during a trial.
