Witness preparation is one of the most important elements of preparing for trial, mediation or deposition. The facts mean nothing if a witness verbally stumbles, appears nervous, sounds unprepared and speaks incoherently.
That’s why attorneys nationwide rely on Andrew Colton for effective, personal witness preparation and deposition preparation. Andrew Colton is a communication expert who has spent thousands of hours in front of the camera — on live television — as a national network news correspondent. He’s not a psychologist, he’s not a “jury consultant,” but an expert communicator who helps witnesses cut through their fear of appearing while helping them answer questions in a brief, effective manner.
