Court Reporter in TX | Texas
If you’re an attorney, a paralegal, or otherwise employed by a law firm there has probably been a time when you asked: “Should I hire a court reporter?” Or perhaps you asked yourself, “What should I look for in an agency that can provide my firm with court reporters”?
They may not always be fully appreciated, but court reporters have a demanding job. Their work might seem straightforward, but recording depositions and other proceedings verbatim require a lot of skill and experience.
For one, court reporters must be excellent listeners, able to concentrate for long stretches of time, which is a real gift in the limited-attention-span-world we live in today. They must also possess excellent attention to detail because providing accurate transcripts of depositions and other legal proceedings is decidedly detail-oriented work. They also need a solid grasp of legal terminology and other terminology of a technical nature. They must possess incredible
spelling, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary skills, and also be able to communicate effectively—both orally and in writing. Of course, speed is of the essence, too, and the ability to process 225 words per minute is pretty much par for the course. It almost goes without saying, but a court reporter must also be precise
, and flexible, and not at all intimidated by the proceedings taking place. After all, there are occasions when a court reporter has to interrupt a deposition or other hearing to ask a speaker to clarify an inaudible statement, which brings to mind another trait that is required of certified court reporters: excellent hearing.
As for the way in which twenty-first-century court reporters get their work done, stenography is still commonplace. That is, the court reporter records all statements using a phonetic code, with each line of characters representing a sound or syllable. The court reporter then translates the recorded information into a written transcript.
Another common process is Real-time reporting, where the court reporter’s output is delivered to a computer and the text displayed on the computer screen. (This is sometimes referred to as CART, an acronym for Communications Access Real-time Translation.)
In fact, Real-time reporting is one of the services we frequently provide to our clients, along with all of the following:
- Certified Court Reporters
- Legal Videographers
- Legal Videoconferencing
- Streaming Depositions
- Post-Production Services
- Video Conversion
- Video Duplication
- Conference Rooms
In fact, we like to think that it’s the strength of our human resources combined with the technological solutions that have helped us to become one of the biggest and best agencies in the court reporting industry. So if you’re in need of an agency to provide you with certified/licensed court reporters on an ongoing basis, we should be your first call.
We’re looking to build long-term relationships with law firms and corporate legal representatives that need an agency with the size and resources to provide assistance locally, or anywhere in the United States. In addition to certified court reporters, we also provide interpreters, legal videographers, and video conferencing solutions, among other things.
As such, we are always prepared to assist you with a deposition or other legal hearing. We handle depositions and administrative hearings in all major U.S. metropolitan areas and can provide fully furnished conference rooms with all of the expected amenities and services.
Then, in the wake of your deposition or administrative hearing, you can count on us to help you manage transcripts and related documents. That is, our well-trained support staff is available day and night so that you can focus on what matters most: practicing law and advocating on behalf of your clients. As if that weren’t enough, we also provide each of our clients with a dedicated case manager who is there to ensure that you receive best-in-class customer service.
As for our services, the three most requested solutions we provide—aside from certified court reporters—are:
Need an Interpreter for a deposition in Texas?
One of the benefits of working with a national court reporting agency like ours is that we have relationships with a deep roster of interpreters covering more than a hundred languages. As you probably know, the parties to lawsuits and other legal proceedings often don’t speak English—at least not as a first language. If you’re an attorney 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 periodically
spoken language or dialect. Better to leave it to us to retain an interpreter who can provide the services you need.
Securing interpreters for depositions and other legal proceedings is all part of our ongoing effort to meet our clients’ litigation support needs. For many years we have maintained that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing any and all language barriers. What are some of the languages for which we can provide interpreters? Mandarin, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Japanese, Russian and Arabic are just a few of the examples. And our interpreters are always ready 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 should be your first call.
Need a Legal Videographer in TX?
The next most common request we get is for legal videographers. Our longtime clients recognize that it’s penny wise and pound foolish to try to record a legal hearing with a smartphone or a handheld camera mounted on a tripod. It’s much more effective to hire a professional who has been trained to film in a legal setting, someone who utilizes specialized equipment to obtain the best possible video and sound.
That’s why our legal videographers use top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, including high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras. The result is a polished video of your deposition or hearing, one that is synchronized with the reporter’s transcript.
If you require editing services, we can also offer the assistance of talented video editors, with post-production services that include linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion to other formats—DVD being a representative example.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Delta County, TX?
Another technology we offer that you’ll almost certainly want to take advantage is Real-time software, which translates stenographic shorthand into English. With Real-time reporting, you can have a transcript delivered to your laptop in real time as the deposition or hearing is taking place. One of the big advantages of a real-time solution is that you can search, highlight, or annotate portions of the transcript as it is delivered, allowing you to use the information during the course of the proceedings. It’s a distinct advantage, particularly if the opposing party doesn’t have the resources to commission the use of this technology.
Secure Online Case Management
Finally, one other way in which technology can make a litigator’s life much easier is via an online document repository like the one we have developed for the use of our clients. Thanks to our platform you have online and mobile access to everything related to your case, including case transcripts and exhibits, plus schedules, account information, invoices, and a personal calendar.
In other words, our online case management system allows you—and those attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate—to access any materials you need, 24/7. Of course, all documents are indexed for easy reference. So you can use our system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text.
Questions? Our Technical Support Team Can Help
Of course, if you have any questions about any of the technology utilized in our solutions, our technical support team is available day and night to guide you through our systems and resolve any issues. A dedicated case manager is also assigned to your account and devoted to making sure that you receive superior service. Your case manager can also help to arrange decidedly old-fashioned services—like imaging and photo copying—or arrange for an interpreter to join a court reporter on an assignment.
Need Easy Access to Transcripts in TX?
Then, after your deposition is over, you and your support staff can utilize our secure online case management system, which provides you with online and mobile access to everything regarding your case, including transcripts, exhibits, account information and invoices. The online system also allows you—and those attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate—to view and download any documents you need twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. If you need physical copies of case documents or transcripts, we provide traditional imaging and copying services as well.
A Dedicated Case Manager is an Added Value
Last but not least, when you use us for your deposition, you will receive personal technical assistance from a dedicated case manager and members of our technical support team. Our support team is available day and night to help you with our online case management system and to answer any questions you may have.
So call us today to get one of the most respected and technologically-advanced court reporting agencies working for you and your fellow attorneys.
We appreciate your business and will work hard to show it every day.
