Suit and tie. Could depend on the value of the case; whether you're defending your client and what they expect of their attorney or whether you're defending an expert. I'd also consider whether it is videotaped or just steno.

I always take off my jacket and have rolled up sleeves but that's how I am in my office every day.

I typically don't wear a jacket or tie unless I am in court that day anyway.

I once saw a plaintiff's lawyer take a deposition in a hoodie and jeans ( and mispronouncing his own client's name throughout).

I always wore a suit or dress. I had a defense attorney show up in a sweatshirt and jeans. I thought she was there to set up the food.

Suit with or without a tie. Depends on the value. Just personal preference.

Always suit & tie !!!

Then, after a few, you'll get an idea of how the other lawyers dress for them in your region of the country, so you can adjust your dress accordingly.
