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?

Video is a powerful document in legal matters, particularly when those matters reach the courtroom and 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 they employ expert videographers with technology that can capture the most important visual details – positive or negative body language, facial expressions that don’t match the tone of voice, and even the slightest gestures that might indicate witness coaching. A single nuance captured on video could make all the difference in the world when it comes to a settlement negotiation or a courtroom presentation.

Additionally, you may 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 MPEG, DVD, CD, and VHS.

Arrange for a Professional Legal Videographer to Shoot Your Deposition

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, sound, and camera position, and who have access to specialized equipment that can capture sharp video images and crystal-clear audio of your deposition.

Our videographers always utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound gear so that clients get the footage they need. We will shoot live, using high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with a polished videotape of your depo that is synchronized with the reporter’s transcript. Let us help you with your deposition.

Need a Legal Videographer in TX?

Alternatively, if you’re conducting an in-person deposition it’s now common to employ a professional legal videographer to document the proceedings, as video and multi-media presentations are now pretty much expected by all parties during litigation proceedings.

Our experienced videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment to help ensure that you always get the footage you need. Our talented video editors provide no-less-valuable services, including media enhancement, linear editing, nonlinear editing, video duplication, and video conversion.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a smartphone can record the video for your deposition or hearing. As long as you’re hiring a accomplished
court reporter why not add a professional legal videographer who has extensive experience filming in a legal setting? It could be the difference-maker in terms of achieving a positive outcome for your client.

Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Clay County, TX?

For those instances when it’s not possible to have everyone physically present in the same room for a deposition or administrative hearing, we offer cutting-edge video conferencing solutions. Our longtime clients will tell you that we are committed to helping clients take depositions remotely while getting much the same results as you would if the deposition occurred in person.

So don’t remain limited by the constraints of geography. With video conferencing, you can eliminate travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, and avoid the hassle associated with getting all of the parties together in one room.

Thanks to video conferencing technology you no longer need to be limited by geography—or feel the pressure to travel to a remote location.

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.
