What Lawyers are Saying
This is the best CLE I have been to. It was especially helpful to those of who have taken hundreds of depositions and have seen it all and probably made every mistake you can make.
Excellent CLE! Best and most interesting CLE I have been to. Absolutely loved the real-life examples.
Read was entertaining and effective. My favorite CLE ever attended.
Shane Read had lots of helpful insights and thoughts on trial strategies, and presented it all in a very thoughtful, effective and interesting manner. I greatly enjoyed the seminar. One of the best.
Mr. Read was an excellent speaker, went at a perfect pace, and explained concepts about trial practice with loads of good analogies and comparisons such as the video clips.
Very entertaining and informative. Great idea to relate points to well-known trials.
Read kept my attention at all times. The best seminar I have ever attended.
I found the use of video clips and interactive participation extremely helpful.
The content and presentation of this CLE were excellent. Mr. Read was great!
The most helpful aspects of the seminar were the practice pointers, all of the examples, and Mr. Read sharing his vast knowledge.
Very interactive, interesting material, engaging presenter.
Shane expanded my perspective of depositions from a discrete pre-trial step to an important part of a continuum.
One of the most informative and entertaining deposition seminars I have ever attended.
I would definitely see him again.
Most helpful aspects were the many real life/trial examples.
Watching real statements made in court and then having Mr. Read explain why they were excellent or terrible was really great to see. He’s an excellent speaker and he is able to put his points across with clarity.
Most engaging, well-thought out, and applicable presentation. Shane should speak more than once.
Mr. Read is very energetic and loved sharing his experiences.
I thoroughly enjoyed your excellent presentation and materials. I have always been a big fan of McElhaney and I always enjoy reading about and learning from masters of the art of advocacy. I have begun reading Turning Points at Trial and it’s in that mold. Very enjoyable. I have been trying cases for 40 years and have attended more CLE’s than I can count. I lecture frequently here in Minnesota . . . . You are a terrific teacher and I enjoyed (and learned from) your presentation.
Shane Read is an energetic and enthusiastic speaker with fantastic tips that were presented in a memorable way.
Definitely ‘a keeper.’ It was tremendous. I remembered/retained so much more by watching the videos he used to demonstrate his points.
My first depo is next Monday and I think this guidance on preparing is going to be vital. Definitely worth the time and money.
Practical! Helpful! Resourceful!
Read has a gift for speaking and holding people’s attention.
Most informative and entertaining seminar I have ever attended.
Shane Read is a compelling and informative speaker whose lively presentations convey invaluable lessons for trial practice.”
The entire deposition seminar was helpful. It cleared out ‘cobwebs’ that have ‘clogged’ my practice. A great refresher for a solo practitioner. Interaction with audience was excellent.
Presenter was PHENOMENAL!
Everything Shane presented is useful in everyday litigation practice. He is an outstanding lecturer and knows how to engage the audience.
Really well set out and explained, making it easy to be able to apply to my work. Great visuals.
Excellent presentation! I loved the quotes, examples, and bottom line messages, we can use to help frame our message and to persuade and motivate others.
Presenter gave clear and specific, instructions, examples, and resources.
There were a lot of excellent tips that I will be putting into play, in my professional life, as well as my personal life. Thank you!
Very engaging, great delivery and tons of info in so short a time. It was memorable and educational. I obtained several good points on structuring my approach and am anxious to see the improvement it will make to my presentations.
Fascinating information and spellbinding presentation. Had my attention the whole time.
A wonderful synopsis of negotiation. I appreciate the simplicity and easy to follow steps.
