California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
I never said anything about secretly recording anyone. I know a Depo has to be done on him, but being a non-attorney I needed to know how to do that or get someone to do it for a reasonable price. Already know it would be much better if I had an attorney, but none of the local or nearby worker's comp attorneys want to go up against my former employer. Even the PI back away when they find out who the defendant is.
I am sorry, but you really weren't any help to me.
But what if you are acting as your own attorney. Isn't there some way in a Worker's Comp Case to accomplish this?
There's a lot of Applicants that end up representing themselves in these kind of cases. It's weird, they are not like normal courts. Are you a Worker's Comp Attorney?
Apologies for the confusion, I meant the only other person other than you that can do this is an attorney.
You can conduct your own depositions when you are acting as your own attorney.
You had just mentioned about whether you could get .someone else to do it for a reasonable price. In response to that question, you can only get an attorney to take depositions.
Taking depositions is the practice of law and only attorneys or self-represented litigants can do it.
The link I had sent you earlier apparently didn't make it through, it is here:
Thanks for the website. It's great because you can type on the form. I do have one other question for clarity sake.
This is a Psychologist, I wanted to depose him at his office but the form seem to indicate that he must appear elsewhere. Can the location for the depo be at his office?
Please let me know if you have any follow up or clarifying questions.
If not please remember to rate my answer positively so I get credit for my work.
Thanks and best of luck!
