Online Case Management as a Legal Advantage Illinois

As you probably know, technology has had a profound impact on legal work and the speed in which it can be completed. That’s why lawyers who can stay organized and quickly access all relevant information are the ones who end up winning the argument or the case at hand.

This is yet another reason it’s advantageous to retain a leading court reporting agency that can provide the technology to supply you with instant access to the documents you need for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other legal proceeding. If you’re not yet able to do so, imagine being able to view your case information with just one keystroke on a computer—or on an iPad, iPhone, or any other mobile device connected to the Internet.

Online Access to Your Calendar, Transcripts, and Exhibits

Among our many capabilities, we can provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case, including:

Our secure online system allows you to view and download any materials you need—24/7. Only you and those individuals you designate (other attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries) have access to the highly sensitive materials related to your case in Illinois.

Professional Legal Videographers | IL

At the same time, more and more of our clients are enlisting our legal videographers to document legal proceedings. Naturally, video is a powerful medium, particularly when a legal matter reaches the courtroom and arguments are made in front of a judge or jury. Our videographers employ state-of-the-art technology that can capture the most subtle visual details – including positive or negative body language, and telling gestures or facial expressions. As you probably know, a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference in the world within the confines of a courtroom. That’s why our videographers always utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, so that our clients get the footage they need. We typically film using multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with polished audio and video. Our well-respected editors provide no-less-valuable services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a smartphone camera can film your deposition. Better to be safe than sorry and use professionals who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting—professionals who understand the importance of lighting and camera position, and who have access to the kind of specialized equipment that makes the difference between amateur and professional in IL.

Video Conferencing Technology | IL

Another area where technology has taken a great leap forward is video conferencing technology, which now enables you to take depositions from anywhere in the U.S. and still get much the same results as you would in person. And with video conferencing you can cut down on travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, and also avoid the hassle associated with getting all of the parties together for a deposition.

If you need a conference room for your hearing we can arrange that as well. Depending on the number of physical locations needed we can provide a single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference. We have access to hundreds of locations across the country and throughout the world, so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs is just a phone call away.

We will take care of the video conference setup (which includes location scouting, working out the logistics, supplying the A/V equipment, testing the equipment, and linking two or more locations). We also provide technical support before, during, and after your hearing so that you can focus all of your time and energy on your work. In fact, when you enlist our video conferencing services for a deposition or other legal proceeding, we will provide a detailed outline of all arrangements made and what you can expect. So call us and save time, money, and stress by using video conferencing for your next deposition.

Certified Court Reporters and Interpreters Available for Virtually Any Language in Illinois

These days, the parties to lawsuits and other legal proceedings come from increasingly diverse backgrounds and often don’t speak English as a first language. Sometimes you might even need a court reporter or interpreter who is prepared to work in multiple languages at the same proceeding.

As a full-service court reporting agency we work hard to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs, whatever they may be. And part of delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. That’s why we supply certified court reporters and interpreters for a diverse array of languages and dialects, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. In fact, we can provide you with court reporters and interpreters across a menu of 140 or so languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic. While we can’t promise you an interpreter who speaks an invented language like Esperanto or Klingon (the latter created for the alien race that inhabits the fictional Star Trek universe), we’re confident we have a solution for any language or dialect you are likely to encounter.
