  2. 2. Deposition Summary Solutions Does outsourcing of deposition summaries engages in Unauthorized Practice of Law (UPL) Better, Unique, and Economical Why summarize your deposition? The purpose of a deposition summary is to accurately and objectively summarize a deponent's testimony into a useful reference document for a reviewing party. The deposition summary will provide an outline of the deposition enabling such reviewing party to quickly review and gain a general understanding of the underlying deposition. As such, the deposition summary should include relevant information from a deposition. A summary is not intended to replace a full reading of a deposition transcript. Who uses the Summary? In preparation for trial, attorneys use a summary of the deposition to refresh their memory of what was said, or if they did not attend the deposition, to become familiar with the testimony. In most cases, it is not practical or desirable for all attorneys representing a client to attend the actual deposition, nor is it practical to have all attorneys working on a case read through the hundreds, if not thousands, of pages of transcript. The deposition summary will be relied on as the main source of information about what the witness said at the deposition. Deposition Summaries articulate testimony and do not provide subjective legal advice or opinion. The summaries are clerical in nature much like the one prepared by your paralegal under your instructions. Non-lawyers working on summaries do not engage in Unauthorized Practice of Law (UPL). Outsourcing of Legal Processes, including Deposition Summaries has been approved by American Bar Association (ABA), state and local bar associations, and the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA). See ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility, Opinion 08-451 (Aug 5, 2008); Supreme Court of Ohio, Board of Commissioners on Grievances and Discipline, Opinion 2006–09 (Aug 14, 2009); Los Angeles County Bar Association, Opinion No. 518 (June 19, 2008); Florida Bar Association (Sept 2007); San Diego County Bar Association, Ethics Opinion 2007-1 (Jan 2007); Association of the Bar of the City of New York, Commission on Professional and Judicial Ethics, Formal Opinion 2006–3 (Aug 2006); Statement by the NCRA (Feb 2009). The NCRA has further held that while a court reporter may not summarize her deposition transcript, there is no bar to her company partnering with a deposition summary provider. See Advisory Opinion 32 of the NCRA (1997). Why Partner with us?
