If you’re an attorney or otherwise employed by a law firm, hiring a court reporter is one of the things you’re likely to be asked to do. But how do you find the right court reporter—one who best meets your needs and expectations? Many law firms find that a full-service court reporting agency best meets their needs, as it can not only provide certified court reporters capable of handling complex testimony (like highly technical or complex medical terminology), but also provide many valuable ancillary services that are both convenient and cost-effective. For instance, a full-service court reporting agency can save you time and money by securing the services of legal videographers and interpreters, in addition to the court reporter. They can also assist in securing conference rooms, arranging video conferences, providing a secure online transcript repository with 24/7 access, and providing transcripts in multiple formats.

Still others marvel at our video conferencing solutions or the ease of utilizing our online case management system and document repository. Read on to learn more about each of the above.

Online Document Repository, Featuring Access to Deposition Transcripts and Exhibits Illinois

Then, after you’ve completed your deposition, you’ll really appreciate the ability to readily access all relevant materials online using our online case management system. With everyone’s time and energy at a premium, the attorney or attorneys who are most organized and efficient have a distinct advantage when it comes to achieving a favorable outcome for clients.

So if you’ve ever found yourself desiring access to case transcripts and documents at a moment’s notice, you’ll appreciate our online case management system, which can supply you with instant access to the documents you need. We provide you with full online and mobile access to everything pertaining to your case. This includes, but is not limited to, a personal online calendar, case transcripts, exhibits, billing account information, and invoices. The secure online system allows you to view and download anything you need—twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Only you and those individuals you designate (other attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries) have access to the materials.

Better yet, all documents related to your case are indexed in our online document repository for easy identification before being logged into our online case management system. You can use the online system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text with the click of a mouse. If you ever need physical copies of case documents or transcripts, we provide traditional imaging and copying services in Illinois.

Need a Legal Videographer to Film Your Deposition? | IL

As we’re sure you know, video can be a valuable tool in the legal arena, particularly when issues must be argued in front of a judge or jury. If you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, make sure that the individuals they employ are expert videographers using technology that can capture the most important visual details—like  positive or negative body language or facial expressions that don’t match the tone of voice. A single nuance captured on video can make all the difference in the world when it comes to a settlement negotiation or a courtroom presentation.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a camera and tripod can film your deposition. You need professionals who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting and sound, and who have access to specialized equipment that can capture sharp video images and crystal-clear audio.

Our legal videographers always utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment so our clients get the footage they need. We use high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with a polished videotape of your deposition, one that is synchronized with the reporter’s transcript.

Additionally, if you require editing by dedicated specialists after the shoot, we offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion for other formats like DVD in IL.

Video Conferencing | IL

Another way in which technology has made a positive difference in the world of court reporting is via video conferencing. More and more of our valued clients are taking advantage of video conferencing solutions, which can save time and money while still providing the same face-to-face impact of an in-person meeting. We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the world and save you the time of coordinating travel for all involved parties, which can be expensive and time-consuming. With our video conferencing solution, you can reduce travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, also avoid the hassle associated with assembling all parties for a deposition or hearing.

Interpreters in Illinois

In terms of our people-based solutions, two of the most requested services we provide are: finding interpreters and legal videographers.

Regarding the importance of qualified interpreters, many parties to lawsuits and related legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language. This can be a challenge for attorneys who want to make sure their clients’ voices are heard—and that they fully understand the questions being asked of them during proceedings. But as you probably know, it’s not always easy to find a qualified interpreter at a moment’s notice, especially if your client’s first language is a less commonly spoken dialect. In some cases, you might even need interpreters and court reporters that are able to work in multiple languages.

As part of our effort to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs, we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. That’s why we have developed a stable of certified court reporters and interpreters for 140 different languages, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. We can arrange for interpreting services for Mandarin, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Dutch, Swedish, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic, among many others. While we might have to draw the line at providing an interpreter for an invented language like Esperanto, short of needing an Esperanto-to-English interpreter, we can help. So whether you need an interpreter for a local case or an international deposition, give us a call today!
