Court Reporter in TX | Texas
If you’re a lawyer or a paralegal at a law firm, hiring court reporters may be one of your responsibilities. And unless you’re new to litigation and litigation practices you probably have a good sense of the cost to hire a court reporter.
So as you may know, a court reporter generally charges by the hour, plus a fee for each page of transcript produced, with the latter regularly
making up the larger part of the cost. Rates for depositions and arbitration hearings may differ, and rates can be higher for complex medical or technical testimony. If you need a condensed transcript or need a transcript on an expedited basis that typically costs extra too.
But the main thing you want to make sure of when considering the cost to hire a court reporter is to make sure you’re making an apples to apples comparison. For example, the industry standard for a page of transcript averages around 50 to 65 characters per line with 25 lines per page. If the pages you receive deviate significantly from the industry average that could dramatically affect your total cost.
But another big factor in determining whether you are comparing apples to apples is the breadth and quality of services offered by the court reporting firms in question. For instance, a local court reporting agency might do a great job in your hometown, but lack the resources and connections to provide services in other cities, or the ability to offer complementary litigation support services.
Many law firms find that a full-service court reporting agency best meets their needs, as such a firm 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.
We are just such a full-service agency, providing licensed/certified court reporters, stenographers, video conferencing technology, and online case management services to attorneys and corporate clients who need to take a deposition. For more than two decades, we have excelled at meeting the expectations of our corporate clients and law firm clients, providing them with accurate, conveniently
accessible transcripts of depositions and other legal proceedings. Whether you’re in New York or Philadelphia, Phoenix or Los Angeles, or anywhere in between, we can help.
In other words, as a full-service court reporting agency, we offer the following services to our esteemed clients.
- Certified Court Reporters
- Conference Rooms
- Legal Videographers
- Videoconferencing Solutions
- Internet Real-time
- Real-time Reporting & Transcripts
- Streaming Depositions
- Online Repository with Personal Calendar
- Post-Production Services
Any while many of our clients most appreciate our ability to provide them with best-in-class court reporters, others find our relationships with interpreters and legal videographers to be most valuable. Still, others laud our video conferencing solutions and the ease of utilizing our online case management system/document repository.
Read on to learn more about each.
Need an Interpreter for a deposition in Texas?
One of the major benefits of working with a national court reporting agency like ours is that we have relationships with a large stable of interpreters covering more than a hundred languages and dialects. As you know, the parties to lawsuits and other legal matters often come from diverse backgrounds and may not speak English. If you’re a lawyer or paralegal you don’t want to spend your time and energy searching for a equipped
interpreter, especially if you’re dealing with a less regularly
spoken language. Leave it to us to find an interpreter who can provide the services you need, when you need them.
It’s all part of our ongoing effort to meet our clients’ varied litigation support needs, whatever they may be. In fact, we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. We can arrange for interpreting services for languages like Mandarin, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Japanese, Russian, and Arabic, as well as many, many more. We are prepared to provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, in addition to the translation of documents during discovery. So whether you need an interpreter for a local case, an international deposition, or an administrative hearing, we can make sure that all your needs and requirements are met.
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 Coke County, TX?
Yet another of our most regularly
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 in the same metropolitan area, we are committed to helping you take a deposition remotely while still getting the results you would get from an in-person meeting. We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the country.
So don’t remain limited by geography. Traveling to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming, but with video conferencing, you can reduce travel costs, lodging costs, and related expenses, while avoiding the hassle associated with assembling all interested parties.
Of course, if you need a room, we can provide a conference room (or rooms). Whether you’re in need of a single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference, we have access to hundreds of locations across the country, so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs is a straightforward process.
One phone call is all that’s urgent. We will set up the video conference, which includes finding the locations, working out the logistics, supplying the video and recording equipment, testing the gear, ensuring working Internet access, and linking all relevant locations. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment that provides high-definition video and the sharpest possible audio. Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished and feature all the amenities you expect, including a multi-line hands-free phone system.
Naturally, we also provide technical support during the proceedings so that you can concentrate on taking the deposition and representing your client to the best of your ability. Liberate yourself from worrying about technical issues by letting us handle the video conferencing for your next deposition.
Need Easy Access to Transcripts in TX?
Of course, a lawyer’s day doesn’t end when a deposition or other legal hearing is completed. The attorney who can stay organized and quickly access all necessary information can save energy for doing what he or she does best.
That’s why a national court reporting firm that can supply instant access to the documents you need is invaluable. We provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case, including a personal online calendar, case transcripts, exhibits and schedules, and account info and invoices. Our secure online case management system allows you—and those attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate—to access any materials you need, twenty-four hours a day.
In case you’re wondering, all documents are indexed for easy identification. You can use our system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text.
Need physical copies of case documents or transcripts? As an added convenience, we also provide traditional imaging and copying services.
Questions? Your Case Manager Can Help
Last but not least, it may be helpful to know that each of our clients is assigned a dedicated case manager, one who will work with you and ensure that you receive superior service. The case manager’s responsibilities include: coordinating your deposition schedule, assigning court reporters and interpreters, and addressing any issues that may arise.
When you use us for your deposition or other legal proceeding, you also have access to technical assistance from our tech team. Our technical staffers—available day and night—work with you to guide you through our online system and answer any questions you may have.
So if you’re in need of a court reporter or any related services, don’t hesitate to give us a call whenever you’re ready. We’re one of the most respected national court reporting firms in the country, and you can rely on us to meet the needs of your law firm or corporate legal department.
