Court Reporter in TX | Texas

If you’re an attorney, a paralegal, or otherwise employed by a law firm there has probably been a time when you asked: “Should I hire a court reporter?” Or perhaps you asked yourself, “What should I look for in an agency that can provide my firm with court reporters”?

They may not always be fully appreciated, but court reporters have a demanding job. Their work might seem straightforward, but recording depositions and other proceedings verbatim require a lot of skill and experience.

For one, court reporters must be excellent listeners, able to concentrate for long stretches of time, which is a real gift in the limited-attention-span-world we live in today. They must also possess excellent attention to detail because providing accurate transcripts of depositions and other legal proceedings is decidedly detail-oriented work. They also need a solid grasp of legal terminology and other terminology of a technical nature. They must possess special
spelling, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary skills, and also be able to communicate effectively—both orally and in writing. Of course, speed is of the essence, too, and the ability to process 225 words per minute is pretty much par for the course. It almost goes without saying, but a court reporter must also be expeditious
, true
, and flexible, and not at all intimidated by the proceedings taking place. After all, there are occasions when a court reporter has to interrupt a deposition or other hearing to ask a speaker to clarify an inaudible statement, which brings to mind another trait that is required of certified court reporters: excellent hearing.

As for the way in which twenty-first-century court reporters get their work done, stenography is still commonplace. That is, the court reporter records all statements using a phonetic code, with each line of characters representing a sound or syllable. The court reporter then translates the recorded information into a written transcript.

Another common process is Real-time reporting, where the court reporter’s output is delivered to a computer and the text displayed on the computer screen. (This is sometimes referred to as CART, an acronym for Communications Access Real-time Translation.)

In fact, Real-time reporting is one of the services we frequently provide to our clients, along with all of the following:

  • Certified Court Reporters
  • Interpreters
  • Legal Videographers
  • Legal Videoconferencing
  • Streaming Depositions
  • LiveNote
  • E-Transcripts
  • Dailies
  • Post-Production Services
  • Video Conversion
  • Video Duplication
  • Conference Rooms

In fact, we like to think that it’s the strength of our human resources combined with the technological solutions that have helped us to become one of the biggest and best agencies in the court reporting industry. So if you’re in need of an agency to provide you with certified/licensed court reporters on an ongoing basis, we should be your first call.

We’re looking to build long-term relationships with law firms and corporate legal representatives that need an agency with the size and resources to provide assistance locally, or anywhere in the United States. In addition to certified court reporters, we also provide interpreters, legal videographers, and video conferencing solutions, among other things.
As such, we are always prepared to assist you with a deposition or other legal hearing. We handle depositions and administrative hearings in all major U.S. metropolitan areas and can provide fully furnished conference rooms with all of the expected amenities and services.
Then, in the wake of your deposition or administrative hearing, you can count on us to help you manage transcripts and related documents. That is, our well-trained support staff is available day and night so that you can focus on what matters most: practicing law and advocating on behalf of your clients. As if that weren’t enough, we also provide each of our clients with a dedicated case manager who is there to ensure that you receive best-in-class customer service.

As for our services, the three most requested solutions we provide—aside from certified court reporters—are:

Need an Interpreter for a deposition in Texas?

Certified court reporters aside, two of the most commonly requested human resources we provide are interpreters and legal videographers.

Being able to find equipped
interpreters is particularly important in this day and age, as many parties to legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language. As you probably know, this presents a daunting challenge for lawyers who want to make sure their clients’ voices are heard—and want to make sure that their clients fully understand the questions being asked of them during any given proceeding.

Yet it’s not necessarily easy for an attorney to find a equipped
interpreter via an Internet search, especially if your client’s first language is decidedly uncommon here in the United States.

But we believe that a critical component of delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. So over the course of more than two decades we have developed a stable of talented interpreters for well over a hundred different languages. As a result, we can arrange for interpreting services for Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Swedish, Russian, French, Hindi, Mandarin or Arabic, among many others. While we might have to draw the line at providing an interpreter for an invented language, anything short of an Esperanto-to-English interpreter or Klingonese-to-English interpreter and we can probably help.

So whether you need an interpreter for a local arbitration hearing or a high-stakes international deposition, give us a call today!

Need a Legal Videographer in TX?

Meanwhile, our other commonly requested “people solution” concerns legal videographers. Of course, video remains an especially powerful tool in the legal environment and figures to remain so for the foreseeable future. Hence it’s not a good idea to trust your A/V needs to someone utilizing nothing more than a cell phone and a tripod. You want a professional who has been trained to record in a legal setting, one who understands the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position, and one who utilizes the kind of state-of-the-art equipment that can capture the video and audio quality you need to succeed.

That’s why we work with veteran legal videographers who are capable of capturing the most telling visual details, including negative body language and revealing facial expressions. Over the years we’ve learned that a single nuance captured on video has the potential to make or break a settlement negotiation or be a difference-maker in the courtroom.

That’s why we also work with the most talented and experienced video editors, who are there to handle all of your post-production needs, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, audio & video duplication, audio & video conversion, and image enhancement.

Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Bailey County, TX?

An oft-overlooked capability of a national court reporting agency like ours is the ability to provide professional legal videographers who document legal proceedings using state-of-the-art A/V equipment, which helps to ensure that our demanding clients always get the footage they need. Our clients appreciate our desire to consistently capture important visual details—like positive or negative body language and revealing gestures & facial expressions. After all, a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference to the outcome of a case. Our video editors also play a critical role in the process, providing clients with the following services:

  • Linear Editing
  • Non-Linear Editing
  • Audio and Video Duplication
  • Audio and Video Conversion
  • Post-Production Services
  • Image Enhancement

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a mobile phone or smartphone can record the audio and video for your deposition or other legal proceeding. Better to employ seasoned professionals who have been trained to film in a legal environment, pros who make a habit of obsessing over the details that help get you the recordings you want and need.

Need Easy Access to Transcripts in TX?

Yet another major capability you want to look for is a top-quality video conferencing solution. As you know, it’s not always possible to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition. That’s why we have long made it a priority to be able to provide our clients with the latest in video conferencing solutions, which allow you to take depositions remotely while still getting the kind of results you would in person.

Thanks to video conferencing technology you no longer need to be limited by geography—or feel the pressure to travel to a remote location. Trial attorneys know that getting on an airplane to fly to a deposition can be a drain on one’s time and energy—and a big added expense. With a video conferencing solution, you can reduce or eliminate travel costs.

Better yet, it’s no more difficult for a firm like ours to arrange a multi-site video conference than a single-site conference. We have access to countless locations across the country, and our trained specialists excel at coordinating even the most complicated logistics. Further peace of mind comes from the fact that we provide a detailed outline of what you can expect as soon as the arrangements are finalized.

In a nutshell: We take care of the video conferencing setup, which includes selecting the locations, working out the logistics, supplying and testing all necessary equipment, ensuring Internet access, and linking the relevant locations. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment with hi-definition video, and our gear is compatible with all common devices. Naturally, our conference rooms come fully furnished, with all the amenities you expect from a first-class solution.
Last but certainly not least, we also provide technical support throughout the proceeding so that you can concentrate on doing your job, as opposed to worrying about whether the equipment is working.

The bottom line is we believe that you and your law firm will save time and money by using our video conferencing services for your next deposition or legal proceeding. Simply give us a call at your earliest convenience if you’d like to learn more.

Do You Have an Online Case Management System?

Of course, once a deposition or arbitration hearing is over, that doesn’t mean your work is done. That’s why you should expect your provider to have a sophisticated online case management system. Using our secure online case system you have online and mobile access to everything related to your case, including transcripts, exhibits, and schedules, and as well as invoices and a personal online calendar. This way your attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries can access any materials they need, 24/7/365.

Better yet, all documents are indexed for easy identification. That means you can utilize our system to search for documents, download exhibits, and even export deposition text. Need physical copies of any transcripts or documents? As an added convenience, we also provide traditional copying services.

Do You Have a Dedicated Point of Contact? And a Technical Point of Contact?

But since it’s not a perfect world, we there are times when you will have questions or need help. That’s why each of our clients is assigned a dedicated case manager who is there to ensure that our clients receive superior service. The case manager’s responsibilities include: coordinating deposition schedules, assigning court reporters and interpreters, and addressing issues as they arise. In addition, when you utilize our services, you also have access to assistance from our technical staffers.

So if you’re in need of a court reporter or any related litigation support services, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We remain one of the most respected national court reporting firms in the U.S., and you can count on us to meet the needs of your firm or corporate legal department.
