Q: What Do I Do If I Hear The Attorneys Talking About A Depo They Have Scheduled For Tomorrow?
A: Ask the attorney if this is a deposition his office is scheduling; and if so, what is the start time. Or ask opposing counsel if the deposition should be on your office’s calendar.
These gestures are greatly appreciated by the client and by the office – your attention to this detail may avert a coverage disaster.
Do not assume your office has the scheduling on the calendar
