Court Reporter in DeSoto, TX | Texas

It’s a often
asked question: What does a court reporter do and what are the services that a full-service court reporting company provides? As you might expect, not all court reporters and court reporting firms are created equal. Part of the reason is that the court reporter role requires a diverse array of skills and know-how
.

Among other things, a court reporter needs knowledge of shorthand reporting, legal recordkeeping practices, and legal terminology. He or she must also have phenomenal
spelling, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary skills. It’s a job that also requires tremendous mental and physical stamina, as one must listen attentively and record everything that is said during depositions and administrative hearings. Speed and accuracy are of the essence, and a court reporter must also communicate effectively—both orally and in writing. And it almost goes without saying, but a court reporter must be precise
, true
, and flexible.

At our national court reporting agency, we look for all of the above skills and traits—and more. That’s why we’ve been able to satisfy our demanding clients for more than two decades, and why we remain one of the most respected names in the industry. So if you’re in need of an agency to provide you with certified and licensed court reporters and stenographers on an ongoing basis, we should be your first call.

Need an Interpreter for a deposition in DeSoto, 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 DeSoto, 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.
