Florida personal injury wrongful death attorney Steve Brooks discusses some common objections you often hear at a trial.

With lots of experience in trials, Steve Brooks has heard these four common objections many times: leading, irrelevant, compound questions, and hearsay. Leading is an objection that is usually made when an attorney is trying to lead his own witness -- basically leading him on what to say, how the attorney wants him to say it. An irrelevant objection simply means that the information is trying to prejudice the jury, instead of proving something. Compound question is an objection when an ambiguous question is asked, and it's not clear or concise. The final objection we're discussing is hearsay. Hearsay is something that is not firsthand, but something heard by someone else outside the courtroom. These are all common objections heard in a jury trial. Watch the video to learn more.
