Summary:  Do you get answers during the deposition that don’t seem truthful but you’re not sure how to proceed with questioning?  Or perhaps you’re at mediation and things are not going well, then tempers are flaring, voices are elevated, and you wonder why it escalated so quickly? 

Enter the realm of body language—a dynamic skill set integral to your legal practice. From client interactions to high-stakes trials, mastering body language offers a distinct advantage. It gives you insight into the thoughts of others, deciphered through their gestures and expressions. This keen awareness not only aids in de-escalating conflicts but also sharpens your line of questioning, guiding you through intricate legal terrain with finesse.
