Court Reporter in Jackson County, IL | 866-374-7446 | Illinois Stenographers

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.

Any while many of our clients most appreciate our ability to provide them with court reporting solutions nationwide, others find our relationships with top quality interpreters and legal videographers to be most valuable. 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 Provides Easy Access to Transcripts Illinois

Last but not least, we also provide an online document repository so you can find what you need, when you need it. All essential documents related to your case are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our online case management system. You can use the online system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export text with the click of a mouse. If you require physical copies of documents or transcripts, we also provide traditional imaging and copying services. Additionally, our online case management system is secure so that only you and those you designate (other attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries, for example) will have access to your account.

You will also have a dedicated case manager who will work with you from beginning to end and ensure that you receive superior service. The case manager is responsible for assigning court reporters, for example. In addition, you can count on receiving technical assistance from the dedicated members of our team. Our technicians (available day and night) will work with you to address your specific needs and to guide you through our online system in Illinois.

Our Legal Videographers | IL

As for the other seasoned professionals who are a part of our team, those include experienced legal videographers. Some attorneys can’t resist the temptation to cut corners when it comes to videotaping a deposition or other hearing. In reality, you want professional legal videographers who have been trained to film in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting and camera position, and who utilize the kind of specialized equipment that can capture the quality of audio and imagery you’re looking for. Perhaps there are some occasions when you might be able to get away with cutting corners; but when things don’t go exactly as planned, that’s when you’ll appreciate having a seasoned professional working with you—the kind of individual who has the resources to maintain a certain amount of redundancy, for example.

After all, you never want to finish a deposition and find that the video you recorded is unusable. As you know, video can be a powerful tool in a legal proceeding, particularly when matters reach the trial stage and issues are argued in front of a judge or jury. That’s why if you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, you want to make sure that it employs expert videographers utilizing state-of-the-art technology that can capture the most subtle details, including body language, facial expressions, and the kind of gestures that might be indicative of witness coaching. A single gesture or facial expression can help buttress a settlement negotiation or courtroom argument.

Also, if you require editing services, our editors are every bit the equal of our videographers in terms of quality and experience. We offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion to other formats, including MPEG, DVD, CD, and even VHS in IL.

Video Conferencing for Your Deposition or Hearing | IL

As for those occasions when it’s just not possible to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition, we are committed to helping you take a deposition remotely while still providing you the same face-to-face impact it would have in person. We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the United States—or the world. So don’t feel limited by geography and travel constraints. Coordinating travel for various parties to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming. With video conferencing, you can cut down on travel costs and all other related expenses, while also avoiding the hassles associated with getting all parties together for a deposition or mediation hearing.

One simple phone call to us is all you need. We will take care of the video conference setup, which includes finding locations, working out the logistics, supplying the video and recording equipment, testing the equipment, ensuring working Internet access, and linking two or more locations for your deposition. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment with HD video and sharp audio. If you need a conference room for your video conference deposition, we can provide that as well. Our conference room locations come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet connections, large monitors, high-quality audio systems, and hands-free multi-line phone systems.

When you enlist our video conferencing services for a deposition or other legal proceeding, we will provide you with a detailed outline of what you can expect from us. We also provide technical support throughout the proceeding so that you can concentrate on the deposition or hearing itself. Save time and money by using video conferencing for your next deposition, and free yourself from the burden of worrying about disconnects or other technical issues.

Get a Qualified Interpreter for your Deposition, Mediation or Arbitration Hearing in Illinois

As a top court reporting agency, we work hard to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs. That’s why we have focused on building up a stable of interpreters covering virtually any language or dialect you might encounter.

As you know, making sure your client understands the dialogue and questions asked during a deposition or other legal hearing is imperative. For clients who speak English as a second—or a third or fourth—language, understanding questions may only be possible with the help of an interpreter. A client who goes without the assistance of a qualified, experienced interpreter may significantly harm their legal interests, not to mention the pursuit of truth-seeking.

So take comfort in knowing that we can supply interpreters covering more than 140 languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic. Among other things, our interpreters can provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, and also translate documents during the discovery process. Call us today if you need one or more interpreters to facilitate your deposition, mediation, or arbitration hearing.
