Lynette Paczkowski has authored the chapters "Goals and Strategies" and "Preparing to Defend a Deposition" in MCLE's Massachusetts Deposition Practice Manual, fourth edition.

The manual, updated in August 2019, trains attorneys on the best ways to use depositions and ultimately win the case, including how-tos on asking the right questions, negotiating challenging topics and interjecting key objections. Lynette's introductory chapter, "Goals and Strategies," dives into the advantages of depositions and strategic and tactical considerations, while Chapter 4, "Preparing to Defend a Deposition," discusses the importance of preparation, assessing rationale and strategy, prepping the witness and other issues around defense.
