Tom Lytle Luncheon

Deposing Persons Most Qualified (To Make Your Case): A Strategic Approach (with Nuts and Bolts on the Side)

Speaker:  Bob Bale, Esq., Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora, LLP

Thursday, May 19, 2022 | 12 noon to 1:00 p.m. | Zoom | 1 MCLE Credit  

PMQ witnesses are not just for huge cases!  They have application in virtually every case with a corporate defendant, from MVCs to trip/slip and falls.

Bob Bale is a partner at Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora, LLC where he specializes on complex litigation in catastrophic injury/wrongful death cases. Bob will provide practical, effective tools and strategies for preparing to depose and deposing Persons Most Qualified, a too-often overlooked witness category that has the potential to completely turn the tables in Plaintiff’s favor. For more than a decade, in high-profile, multi-million dollar cases with partner Roger Dreyer, Bob has used the effective deposition of PMQs to commit manufacturers and entity defendants to standard of care breaches and corporate admissions that cannot be cured by defense experts, since the PMQ’s testimony is binding on defendant. From discovery through the PMQ notice, to video designations and motions in limine for use at trial, Bob will share highly effective approaches to improving your deposition success with PMQs.
