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.

We provide you with full online and mobile access to everything pertaining to your case.

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.

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 Solutions | IL

Yet another of our most commonly requested solutions is video conferencing. On occasion, it’s not possible to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition. Whether it’s a matter of conflicting schedules or parties not living near each other, we are committed to helping you take a deposition remotely while still getting the results you expect. We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the world.

So don’t remain limited by geography. Coordinating travel to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming. With video conferencing, you can reduce travel costs, lodging costs, and related expenses, while avoiding the hassle associated with assembling all interested parties in the same room.

Of course, if you need a room, we can provide a conference room or rooms. Whether you’re doing 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 will be easy.

One phone call is all it takes. We will set up the video conference (this includes finding the location(s), working out the logistics, supplying the video and recording equipment, testing the equipment, ensuring working internet access, and linking two or more locations). We utilize state-of-the-art equipment that provides HD video and sharp audio. Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished with all the amenities and features you should come to expect, including a multi-line hands-free phone system.

Naturally, we also provide technical support before, during, and after the proceeding so that you can concentrate on taking the deposition. Liberate yourself from worry about technical issues and whether the recording is working or not. Give us a call today and let us handle the video conferencing for your next deposition. Before you know it, you will have the specifics of what we’ve arranged and a detailed outline of what you can expect.

This is part of the technological advantage we can provide as a full-service court reporting agency. As you know, attorneys who can stay organized and work efficiently have that much more time to devote to their cases and their clients.

Interpreters and Interpreting Services for Depositions and Other Hearings in Illinois

More and more, our clients are taking advantage of our interpreting services when hiring a court reporter. That’s because many parties to lawsuits come from diverse places and backgrounds and don’t always speak English as a first language—or even a second or third language. For attorneys and paralegals this can pose a problem; it’s not always easy to find an interpreter who is capable of providing interpretation services within the required time frame, particularly if it’s a less common language or dialect. In other cases you might need a court reporter prepared to provide interpretation services in several different languages.

But we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing any and all language barriers. We’re capable of supplying certified court reporters and interpreters for virtually any language or dialect, not to mention sign language for the hearing impaired. More specifically, we can arrange for interpreting services for approximately 140 different languages and dialects, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and Arabic. Have a need for interpreting services involving a much less common language? Give us a call today—we can help.
