October 6, 2008 – New Media Legal Publishing announced today the release of its first product –“Deposition Testimony: 5 Simple Rules” – a video‐on‐demand program for litigators to use to help prepare their clients to give their best possible testimony on deposition.
“Deposition Testimony: 5 Simple Rules” is the first and only witness preparation video that is available for viewing by litigators and clients anywhere – anytime – on‐line via streaming video over the Internet. Other witness preparation videos are available only on DVD, which means that your litigators and clients can’t use them wherever they are or whenever they have time.
“Forget everything you think you know about deposition prep videos,” said Zachary S. McGee, President, New Media Legal Publishing. “Gone are the days of outdated content, poor production values and as importantly, that certain dead‐end technology known as the DVD. ‘Deposition Testimony: 5 Simple Rules’ is thoroughly modern and up to date, and shot in highdefinition video in a dramatic, cinematic style that will capture and hold your client’s attention while it teaches him or her the right way – and the wrong way – to testify in a deposition. The future of deposition preparation begins now.”
“Deposition Testimony: 5 Simple Rules” has received ample advance praise from prominent litigators from coast to coast. For Dennis Glazer, a litigator with Davis Polk & Wardwell in New York, “’Deposition Testimony: 5 Simple Rules’ is a terrific supplement to traditional witness preparation. The video reinforces the advice we give by showing the witness how to apply that advice when testifying and, as importantly, vividly illustrating how things can go wrong if the advice is not followed. I highly recommend it." Gail Migdal Title, co‐managing partner of the Los Angeles, California office of Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP calls the video “a great teaching tool for witnesses and young litigators alike. Dramatic scenes, practical narration and superb production values combine for a highly effective and engaging presentation that makes the techniques of good deposition testimony extremely easy to absorb."
