The purpose of an interview is to uncover the truth; the method of uncovering the truth is the art of the interview. Obtaining sufficient relevant information is imperative in everything a lawyer does to protect the interests of the client, yet interviewing techniques are not emphasized in law school training. Getting the Whole Truth teaches lawyers--from novices meeting their first clients to experienced trial lawyers--effective methods of obtaining information by human interaction. No matter from whom you are seeking information or what your reason for desiring it, these techniques can help you meet and interact with others and effectively gather the facts you need.
