In both Florida and Federal cases, Plaintiffs can notice depositions with certain “areas of inquiry”. Those can be difficult to articulate, so below is a sample. Please seek legal advice before using such a thing, such as our lawyers. Our attorneys serve Gainesville, Ocala, Lake City, and the surrounding areas. The following is from an employment law case, but with modification, it could easily be used to help the injured or in a divorce:

2. The answers to Plaintiff’s first set of interrogatories.
3. The current location of each and every document requested in Plaintiff’s first request to produce.
4. Any and all issues related to allegations that the Plaintiff’s work performance was good, bad, poor, and insufficient.
