Can I speak with my lawyer during my deposition?

Again, you can speak with your lawyer during a break. You cannot speak with your lawyer while we are on the record and while you are answering questions or when a question is pending. If you do need to speak to your attorney, you’ll need to answer the question and request a break. What you want to avoid is the appearance also of the lawyer coaching you. So sometimes people will naturally, when a question is asked, they’ll look at their lawyer as if they want their lawyer to like nod their head or shake their head, to give them a hint on how to answer and a lawyer should just hold still. So, if you were trying to ask your lawyer questions and he or she is not responding, that might be why as the lawyers are not allowed to coach you.
