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
- Video Conferencing
- RealTime (Reporting and Transcripts)
- Post-Production Services
- Video Conversion
- Streaming Depositions
- Conference Rooms
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 trained 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 Crosby 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.
Know too that we can also provide a room (or rooms) for your single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference. We have access to hundreds of locations around the country so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs is always an easy process.
In fact, one phone call is all it takes. We’ll provide options for locations, work out the logistics, supply the A/V equipment, test the equipment, ensuring working Internet access, and link two or more locations. We always utilize state-of-the-art equipment with HD video, and our equipment is compatible with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet, king-size monitors, and all the amenities you would expect from a first-class video conferencing solution. And we always itemize the details regarding the arrangements that have been made on your behalf.
Last but not least, we also provide technical support before, during, and after the deposition or hearing so that you can concentrate on your work. You never have to worry about disconnects or other technical issues.
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.
