What’s the Goal of the Opposing Attorney During Cross-Examination?

At times during the course of the trial, particularly when you are being cross-examined by the opposing counsel, it may appear as if they have something against you.

But, and you may need to just trust me on this: the opposing counsel is not against you. They are just for the opposition.

So what are they trying to do when they keep asking you the same question over and over? What are they doing when they stand up and object before you have an opportunity to respond to the questions being asked? What are they doing when they try to twist everything you are saying so you can’t think straight?

They are not making personal attacks against you. They are trying to convince their client that they are working hard on their behalf and are worth the money they are being paid.
