A single witness’ statement or testimony can often singlehandedly make or break a case. However, if you’ve been in the business for a while, you know how hard it can be to convince some people to step forward. Some people may not be willing to partake due to a fear of putting themselves in danger from others, admitting to a crime, or simply not having the time or finances to travel long distances for the deposition.
