My attorney scheduled my deposition but it keeps getting pushed back every time the date approaches. Is this normal?

 

A: In some cases, yes. Remember, a deposition is a meeting with your attorney, the attorneys for the other side, and a court reporter- usually in your attorney's office. There may be scheduling conflicts with one or more attorneys who cannot appear at your deposition on the scheduled date, even though it was previously scheduled. In my office I make every effort to go forward on the scheduled date, but sometimes the attorneys (myself included) are on trial, or have to be in Court, and must postpone your deposition for a short time. I make every effort to reschedule your deposition to the earliest possible date that everyone is available. Importantly, I try to make sure you're available on a particular day first, then I confirm with the other parties to the lawsuit.
