Online Document Repository Provides Easy Access to Transcripts, More Illinois

Technology has had a remarkable effect on the legal industry by making organization and efficiency a mission-critical aspect of running a successful law firm. Attorneys who can stay organized and quickly access all necessary information have a distinct advantage as compared to their less organized opponents. That’s why you want a resourceful court reporting service that can supply you with instant access to the documents you need for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other legal proceedings. This means being able to view your materials with just one keystroke or click of a mouse on a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

If you choose us and utilize our secure online case management system we will provide you with online and mobile access to everything regarding your case, including an online calendar, transcripts, exhibits, and billing information and invoices. The online system allows you to view and download anything you need 24/7, with access to highly sensitive materials restricted to the attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate to have access.

We also provide a document repository where you can find all documents related to your account. Essential documents are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our case management system. You can use the online system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text. If you need physical copies of case documents or transcripts, we also provide traditional imaging and copying services, as well as physical depositories.

And when you use us for your deposition or other hearing, you will receive personal technical assistance from the members of our team. Our technicians will work with you to address your specific needs and to guide you through our online system. Support staffers are available day or night to answer any questions you may have in Illinois.

Legal Videographers | IL

That’s why it’s important not to cut corners by using “just anyone” with a camera to film and record your deposition or hearing. A professional legal videographer who has been trained to film in a legal setting—and who understands the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position—can provide you the footage you need to win your case. An experienced legal videographer will also utilize specialized equipment designed to capture the highest-quality audio and video. Using anything—or anyone—else, is penny-wise and pound foolish.

That’s why we make sure our videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, to ensure that our demanding clients get the footage they need. We shoot live, using high-gain microphones and high-definition cameras to provide you with the quality video recording you should come to expect.

Don’t overlook the importance of a top quality editor, either. As a leading court reporting agency we have the size and resources to retain experienced video editors to provide post-production services, including services like linear editing, nonlinear editing, and media enhancement. Our offerings also include time-saving services like audio & video duplication. Moreover, we have the ability to provide and convert audio and video to a variety of formats, including CD and DVD in IL.

 

Video Conferencing Solutions | IL

Yet another popular option is conducting depositions via video conference. By utilizing our video conferencing services, you can reduce or eliminate travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, and also avoid the hassle associated with getting all of the parties together for a deposition or other legal proceeding.

As a top court reporting agency, we are committed to helping you take your deposition remotely, while still getting the same face-to-face impact you would have in-person. Thanks to cutting-edge technology, that is now a realistic goal, and you and/or your clients may find yourselves more comfortable in your home environment. That’s why we offer legal video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the United States—or the world.

Just give us a call and we will take care of the video conference setup. This typically includes selecting the location(s), handling the logistics, providing state-of-the-art video conference equipment, testing the aforementioned equipment, ensuring Internet access, and linking two or more locations for your deposition or other legal proceedings. Our legal videographers utilize top-of-the-line digital equipment that can provide high-definition audio complemented by high-quality audio.

And if you’d like us to book a conference room, our locations come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet, as well as suitably large monitors and all other expected amenities. Most important of all, perhaps, we also provide technical support during and after the proceeding so that you can concentrate on the deposition and serving the needs of your client. You don’t have to worry about whether a quality recording is being made, or tend to any technical issues or any unexpected environmental changes that may occur.

When you enlist our video conferencing services for a deposition or other legal proceeding, we will give you a detailed outline of what you can expect from us. Save time and money by using video conferencing for your next deposition.

Interpreting Services in Illinois

As a leading court reporting agency, we also provide highly experienced interpreters to clients in need. Even in major cities, it’s not always easy for attorneys to find an interpreter who is capable of translating a particular language or a dialect at a moment’s notice. Thanks to our resources and extensive network, we provide qualified interpreters during the time frame you need them.

Certified Court Reporters Available for Any Language or Dialect

In fact, in this day and age—when it seems as if more and more parties to lawsuits or legal proceedings don’t speak English (or don’t speak English as a first language)—we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing any and all language barriers. That’s why we supply certified court reporters and interpreters for virtually any language or dialect, not to mention sign language for the hearing impaired.

We can arrange for interpreting and translation services for more than140 different languages, including romance languages like Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese, plus other commonly spoken languages like Russian, German, Chinese, Japanese, and Arabic. We are prepared to provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, in addition to the translation of documents, a commonly requested service during the discovery phase of proceedings.

Retain a Qualified Interpreter for Your Deposition or Hearing

So whether you need an interpreter for a local case, an international deposition, an arbitration hearing, or the translation of a transcript or other document, we can make sure that your needs are met in a timely fashion.
