Court Reporter in TX | Texas

If you’re a lawyer you recognize how important it is for you to stay up-to-date with technology. To use an obvious example: Consider how much more efficient it is to do legal research using the Internet, as compared to the not-so-distant past when you had to maintain a large library of law books—and you referenced those big, heavy volumes manually. Fact is, if you don’t take advantage of the latest technology, you’re probably not using your time as efficiently as you should, and likely at a disadvantage compared to opposing counsel.

The situation is analogous to that surrounding court reporting and stenography, the latter of which dates back to 1879, when Miles Bartholomew of Belleville, Illinois, patented the first stenography machine. Much like the practice of law, the technology side of court reporting has evolved considerably in recent decades. Historically speaking, innovations like streaming depositions and e-transcripts are a relatively recent development.

Recognizing the importance of staying current with the latest technology, our national court reporting agency makes it a point to encourage and help our court reporters stay current with new developments. One valuable source of information is The Journal of Court Reporting, which is published by the National Court Reporters Association. At the same time, there are a lot of compelling training materials on YouTube and elsewhere online. There are even organizations that are continuously working toward the advancement of new technologies in court reporting, like the Florida-based Society for the Technological Advancement of Reporting (est. 1990), a professional non-profit organization which “educates members regarding the most effective use of technology in their careers,” to name just one aspect of its mission.

At our agency, we also take pride in providing our clients with the latest technological tools, most notably, perhaps, our secure online case management system. Using our system our clients have desktop and mobile access to all of the documents related to their account, including transcripts, exhibits, schedules, and invoices. Better yet, all documents are indexed for easy identification. That means you can utilize our system to search for documents, download exhibits, and export deposition text, among other things.

So whether you’re in a legal hub like New York, Los Angeles, or Washington, D.C., or a relatively small city, we believe we have the most technologically advanced and cost-effective solutions for any or all of the following:

  • Certified Court Reporters
  • Legal Videographers
  • Interpreters
  • Video Conferencing
  • E-Transcripts
  • RealTime (Reporting and Transcripts)
  • LiveNote
  • Dailies
  • Post-Production Services
  • Video Conversion
  • Streaming Depositions
  • Conference Rooms

Need an Interpreter for a deposition in Texas?

One of the best reasons to consider a national court reporting agency is that it can often
provide many complimentary services—equipped
interpreters, for instance. As you know, many parties to lawsuits and other legal proceedings don’t speak English as a first language—or even a second or third language.

If you’re a lawyer or paralegals this can be a frustrating challenge, as it’s not always easy to find an interpreter who capable of providing interpretation services within the required time frame, particularly if you need someone in a city other than your own.

That’s why we’ve long made it a priority to remove any and all language barriers for our clients and why we take pride in supplying both licensed court reporters and equipped
interpreters.

More specifically, we can arrange for interpreting services for upwards of 140 different languages, including Spanish, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Russian, and Arabic. Have a need for an interpreter who speaks a much less common language? Anything short of an invented language like Esperanto or Klingonese (the latter is spoken by Klingons in the fictional Star Trek universe, and believe it or not, some people do speak Klingon) we can probably help.

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 Brewster County, TX?

As for those instances when it’s not practical to have everyone physically present in the same room for a deposition, we offer sophisticated video conferencing solutions. With video conferencing, you can eliminate airfare, lodging costs, rental car costs, and other expenses, and also avoid the hassle of assembling all of the parties in one room. We have access to hundreds of locations around the country so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs is a straightforward process, whether you need a single-site solution or multi-site solution.

One phone call is all it takes to get us started on making the arrangements. We’ll provide options for locations, work out the logistics, supply the audio-visual equipment, test the equipment, and link two or more locations. We always use state-of-the-art gear with HD video, and our equipment is compatible with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones. As you’d expect, our conference rooms come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet, as well as all the amenities and conveniences you would expect.

We also provide technical support during the deposition or hearing so that you can concentrate on advocating for your client. You never have to worry about disconnects or other technical issues.

Need Easy Access to Transcripts in TX?

Finally, once the bulk of your work is done, your transcript and all materials related to your account can be accessed 24/7 in our secure online document repository. We provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case.

This includes transcripts, exhibits, schedules, invoices, and even a personal calendar. All of the docs are indexed for easy identification and you can use system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and export deposition text. Need physical copies of case documents or transcripts? We provide traditional imaging and copying services as well.

And if you need help utilizing the document repository, you can always reach out to your dedicated case manager or a trusted member of our technical support team.
