Witness

They had this same conversation several times now. It always ends the same way.

Him: If this goes to trial, will I have to testify?
Her: Possibly, yes.
Him: Will someone coach me?
Her: More like prepare you for your testimony.
Him: Who will prepare me?
Her: The attorney for the party you're going to testify for.
Him: Why wouldn't the other attorney prepare me?
Her: He would prefer you to be unprepared. He will try to trip you up.
Him: How will he do that?
Her: One way is based on the testimony from your deposition.
Him: Oh. They're going to dispose me?
Her: Yes...... Sort of......
