  • There is relevance.
  • It was unfair/prejudicial.
  • There is a leading question.
  • A compound question.
  • There is an argument.
  • It was asked and answered.
  • I don’t know.
  • Foundation issues

Here are some common reasons for objecting.

To skip to a specific section, click on the name of the objection: Relevance, Unfair/prejudicial, Leading question, Compound question, Asked and answered, Vague, Foundation issues, Non-responsive, Speculation, Opinion, Hearsay example. Some leading questions may be allowed by the judge during the direct examination for simple background information to move the testimony along faster.

The judge might allow the question “You are the Respondent’s mother, correct?” instead of “How do you know the Respondent?” When someone is asking about issues that relate to the case, leading a witness is not allowed.

On direct examination, the leading question could be objected to: “The car that you saw leave the scene of the robbery was blue, right?” It would be better to ask: “What color was the car that you saw leaving the scene of the robbery?”

The witness, the judge, and the jury are not allowed to be confused by compound questions. Don’t get flustered with the other party’s objection and skip the issue altogether if you find yourself asking a compound question. Why did you go back into the house and what made you think it was a good idea to take the children away? The opposing party’s attorney said that he was not afraid of his client.

You: “Yes, I am.” The opposing party’s attorney said that he didn’t look very afraid when he walked into court.

The unique thing about this objection is that it could come up in two different scenarios, first, opposing counsel could ask you or your witness the same question, hoping that conflicting answers will be given. If a person fails to explain the background circumstances of how they know the information, a question or response can be objectionable. When answering about specific facts, the witness has to explain how he knows the information.

You said that you put your hands around my neck after pushing me down. The other party said yes. If a witness does not know a fact to be true or not, but testifies about it anyway, this testimony would be objectionable. You can testify that you saw a white powdery substance in a baggie that appeared to be cocaine, based on your understanding of the drug and what you looked up online.

What are the 4 types of objections?

  • Sales Objection1: Misunderstanding This is when a buyer doesn’t know anything about your solution or a competitor doesn’t know anything.
  • Sales Objection Skepticism is #2.
  • Sales objection #3: Drawback.
  • Sales Objection 4: Indifference.

Jim discusses a framework developed by AchieveGlobal that includes 4 types of sales objections along with strategies for handling them. An example of this type of objection would be, “I spoke with a sales rep at X company and they told me they don’t have the ability to integrate with my accounting software.”

According to Jim, this is one of the best types of objections reps can get because it shows that buyers are interested enough that they are looking for proof as to why they should purchase your solution. For example, reps could say, “We have these 5 capabilities that you stated were the most important things on your list, do you think that outweighs the drawbacks?”

The first thing a seller should do is to keep selling and remind the buyer of the benefits they will receive. Jim explains that the strategy here is to ask a few questions that uncover needs and interests the buyer may not be aware of. It is important to reinforce the message once the reps have completed their courses. Managers should give feedback to help reps hone their skills.

You can apply the framework in our exclusive eBook.

What are the three types of objections?

  • Hear it. The most common trial objection to a trial testimony objection is hearsay.
  • It’s leading. Leading questions is a close second objection.
  • Relevancy. Relevance is the last of the three objections.

Everyone who has watched a courtroom drama or live court TV has heard objections during the testimony of a witness.

Typically, in connection with trial testimony of a witness, documentary evidence may be identified, a foundation laid, and a document admitted. All evidence a trial court receives to decide a case is in the form of testimony or documents.

Many times, expert testimony will be provided by an individual hired for this purpose and who has no other connection with the case at all. The attorney for the opposing party would object if the testimony was not true. If the subpoena is valid and accompanied by witness fees, he or she must attend the court. In a lawsuit, where the loss of money or freedom is at hand, very few trials use statements from the fact- finder.

If not, the distortion could result in a key fact being mistaken and a miscarriage of justice. Some out of court statements may be used for other reasons than to prove the truth of the matter. It is impermissible to ask a favorable witness or party a leading question.

The opposing counsel would object to the question being leading if the identity of the witness was a key fact. There is a finite amount of time for judges, and litigants are often paying their lawyers for trials.

Non-native speakers and litigants who do not understand the process are the most common exceptions to this rule. levancy means that basic facts make an issue of the case more probable. The statistics rate the safety and injury facts of cars based on their weight. All relevant evidence can be used if accepted by other objections, statutes, and the like.

The size of the accident is relevant to the legal matter and hand, and if an attorney attempts to introduce accident scene photos of the respective vehicles, it is relevant and should not be objectionable. Sometimes the court will rule, but other times it will give the opposing party a chance to respond. The American trial court system, which may have a case decided by a jury or a judge, is the model for and envy of the rest of the world.

What are the 5 most common objections?

  • “We’re Good” is the first objection. Someone is doing a good job.
  • OBJECTION 2: “Your price is too high.”
  • “You’re all the same,” said OBJECTION 3.
  • “Just send me your information and I’ll get back to you.”
  • “This isn’t a priority right now.”

Here are five of the most common objections, why you hear them, and how to overcome them.

This is the most common objection that people in sales receive, no matter what industry they are in. It’s easy for prospects to throw this out there so they don’t have to deal with you and put time, effort, and energy into changing their provider.

When they tell you your price is too high, your goal is to find out which scenario you are in. Before you spend time, effort, and money on generating a proposal that will go nowhere, begin having that conversation earlier in the sales process. The key to differentiating your approach is to interrupt the prospect’s usual buying patterns and objections as soon as you start interacting with them.

All of the bad things that their current provider and past companies have done to them will be shared by the prospect. The prospect has heard the same song and dance a hundred times before and this is how your competition handles objection. The prospect will usually say, “I have no interest in what you’re selling or desire to talk further, so instead of telling you no, I’ll ask for more information so you get off the phone feeling you accomplished something.”

A good prospect will set aside some time to talk after you give them your information. “I would be happy to send you some info” is the way to handle this objection.

You have tried to get a meeting with the decision makers of your ideal sales prospect. They shared that they have the money to pay for your product and services after you spent multiple meetings uncovering their problems and challenges, discussing and presenting how you will help them resolve those issues. The items that make it to the top of your to do list each day are the things that need to be taken care of or solved.

No matter what else is going on in your life, you allocate time to take care of those items. The way to deal with this is to reduce resistance, get clarity on why they don’t have urgency, and what they’re going to do while they keep dealing with the problem.

You have to remain calm, reduce resistance, and ask questions.

When we get worried we tend to speak more than listen. The whole project will be in jeopardy if your delivery date doesn’t work with our schedule. Make sure you understand the objection and offer an acceptable solution. Is moving the delivery date correct because your crew will be available and you can stay on schedule?

Changing the delivery date will make it work for you. It’s a good idea to think through what objections the prospect may have prior to each sales call. By following her advice, her clients see a 40 to 75% increase in sales. Coca Cola, Hewlett Packard, Mercedes Benz, as well as some you have never heard of, watch their sales soar because of their work with her.
