Chris Finney, Trial Attorney
Typically, no, you will not be deposed before you file a lawsuit. It can happen. The rules do provide for it. But it’s very unusual, and we rarely see it happen.
When Will I Be Deposed?
Your deposition can only occur, in almost all circumstances, post-filing (a lawsuit) or post-discovery exchange. So are you going to be deposed pre-lawsuit or pre-litigation? The answer is no.
Can I Be Deposed More Than Once?
You’re only going to be deposed one time. There are special circumstances where it can happen more than once, but typically it’s just one time.
