In this episode, Zinda Law Group CEO and founder, Jack Zinda talks about what you need to do to ensure that you’re completely prepared after your discovery period.
Discussed in this Episode:
- Find the time
- The “theory of the case”
- Create your discovery questions
- Motion to compel
Find the Time
Jack talks about his process when putting a list together. First and foremost you must set aside the time to make a comprehensive list of everything you need for each individual discovery process. Too often lawyers use templates or copy/paste their information and it can prove costly.
The “Theory of the Case”
For a free legal consultation, call 800-863-5312
Once you’ve set aside some dedicated time, the next step is to begin to grab information. What facts are going to be important to winning this case and what evidence you need to prioritize getting during discovery. Then it’s time to start putting together a theory based on the initial information given to you in the case file.
Create Your Discovery Questions
Now we dig deeper into each piece of evidence or information that we deem important. Do not be afraid to be very specific here. Being overly broad in your inquiry may leave room for interpretation. Was there video evidence? If not, make them prove it.
Motion to Compel
After the initial discovery inquiry, it’s time to create your motion to compel letter. This is where good lawyers can make a case. Create a person of interest log as well as a production log and find what information is missing or you feel is being withheld.
