Court Reporter in Seagoville, 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 ordinarily
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 Seagoville, Texas?
Every year our interpreting services business grows a little more. That’s because many parties to lawsuits come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language—or even a second language. For attorneys and paralegals, this can pose an ongoing problem; it’s not always easy to find a experienced
interpreter who is capable of providing interpretation services within your time frame, particularly if it’s a less common language or dialect.
But we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. We’re capable of supplying certified court reporters and interpreters for virtually any language or dialect, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. More specifically, we can arrange for interpreting services for over a hundred different languages and dialects, including Spanish, German, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Mandarin, Russian, and Arabic. Have a need for interpreting services for a language less ordinarily
heard in the U.S., like Afrikaans, perhaps? Give us a call today; most likely we can help.
Need a Legal Videographer in Seagoville, TX?
More and more, one of those litigation support needs is finding an interpreter who can help facilitate your deposition or other legal hearing. As you know, many parties to lawsuits—especially in major cities—don’t speak English as a first language. And if it’s your client, you want a best-in-class interpreter who can provide an accurate translation of conversations and make your client as comfortable as possible.
As you also know, finding an interpreter who is capable of providing interpretation services within a limited time frame can be a challenge, particularly if a less common language or dialect is involved. But we believe that any national court reporting agency should be capable of removing any and all language barriers. That’s why we take pride in supplying interpreters for most any language you’re likely to encounter in the continental United States.
In fact, we can arrange for interpreting services for well over a hundred different languages and dialects, including commonly spoken languages like Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and Arabic. Meanwhile, we can also provide an option for languages that are less commonly heard here in America, not to mention sign language services for the hearing impaired. Basically, anything short of an obscure invented language and we can probably help.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Dallas County, TX?
Another capability that you should look for in a court reporting firm is the ability to provide professional legal videographers who can document legal proceedings using the highest-quality A/V equipment. Video remains a powerful medium, particularly when a legal matter moves into the litigation stage.
Our legal videographers employ state-of-the-art technology capable of capturing the smallest visual details—like positive or negative body language and revealing gestures & facial expressions. Our longtime clients have learned that a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference to the outcome of a case.
That’s why our experienced videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, helping to ensure that our demanding clients always get the footage they need. Our video editors make a no-less-valuable contribution, ordinarily
commissioned to help with:
- Media Enhancement
- Linear Editing
- Non-Linear Editing
- Audio and Video Duplication
- Audio and Video Conversion
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a mobile phone can record the audio and video for your deposition or other legal proceeding. Better to employ seasoned pros who have been trained to film in a legal setting, professionals who will obsess over the details and help get you the recordings you want and need.
Need Easy Access to Transcripts in Seagoville, TX?
Finally, we’re especially proud of our secure online case management system, which is used to access transcripts and other documents related to your account. If you’re like most of our clients, after a deposition or hearing is over you need your transcripts sooner rather than later—and you need to be able to access them quickly and conveniently
Fortunately, the Internet has had a transformative effect on the legal industry by streamlining the process of doing research and searching for documents. Thanks to our secure system you have online and mobile access to all materials related to your cases and account. This includes transcripts and exhibits, plus invoices, billing information, and an online calendar. In other words, our secure platform allows you to view and download anything you need 24/7, with access to sensitive materials restricted to the attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate.
To help maximize efficiency, essential documents are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our searchable system, from which you can download exhibits, print materials, and export deposition text. If you need physical copies of documents or transcripts, we also provide copying services. And technical assistance from one of the dedicated members of our support team is never more than a phone call away. Our experienced technicians are available day and night and will work with you to address your specific questions and needs.
So if you want the most talented and technologically-advanced court reporting company in the U.S. working for you and your law firm, give us a call today and give us a try.
We look forward to working with you and your colleagues.
