Online / Zoom



This Webinar will discuss preparing non-physician employed healthcare providers and the challenging endeavor that one must individualize and how preparing such witnesses differs from other witnesses in a medical negligence case. We will discuss how one must remember that they are more protocol driven, limited in the scope of opinions that legally can be voiced, and more often than not the deposition that you are preparing them for will be their sole foray into the legal system. This webinar will cover the process from beginning to end including the initial meeting up through the deposition itself and will discuss some of the presenters’ past experiences in preparing witnesses and the unique challenges that come along the way.

Presented by:

Kyle S. Morat is a member of the Florida Defense Lawyers Association (FDLA), American Bar Association, the Orange County Bar Association, and he is admitted to practice in all Florida State Courts as well as in the U.S. District Courts for the Middle and Southern Districts of Florida. Mr. Morat focuses his practice in the areas of professional liability and medical malpractice litigation, where he defends physicians, nurse practitioners, hospitals and other health care providers in negligence and wrongful death actions. He also has experience in defending Department of Health and other Agency actions and in general civil trial practice including Federal employment and labor actions.

John W. Bocchino has tried over 30 cases to verdict over his career, many of which were Medical Negligence claims.  He has been voted Super Lawyer and America and Florida’s Best Lawyers by his peers. John was named the Best Lawyers® 2019 Personal Injury Litigation-Defendants “Lawyer of the Year” in Orlando and has been recognized by Best Lawyers® for the last decade. He has made numerous presentations and was a contributing author to the Florida Medical Association Physician’s Desk Reference Handbook with former partner Donald Weidner.  One prevalent belief that John holds that drives him even today is the thought and belief that “Defendants have a right to an attorney that will fight on their behalf every bit as much as does a Plaintiff”.
