How does an objection work when there is no judge present?

So, the objection goes on the record. It’s totally for purposes to preserve the record. So, when we are in front of the judge, the attorneys can ask the judge to rule on that objection. How it’s handled is, there aren’t any speaking objections like you would see on television, or if you’ve ever been in a courtroom where the two attorneys argue over the objection and the judge makes a ruling that just goes in the transcript. If it’s a situation to where the attorney believes you can’t answer, so it’s not privileged information or falls into a category that your attorney will lay out for you during deposition prep, then you will still answer the question unless your attorney specifically advises you not to answer it.
