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
  • Interpreters
  • Video Conferencing
  • E-Transcripts
  • RealTime (Reporting and Transcripts)
  • LiveNote
  • Dailies
  • Post-Production Services
  • Video Conversion
  • Streaming Depositions
  • Conference Rooms

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 knowledgeable
interpreter, especially if you’re dealing with a less frequently
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?

Alternatively, if you’re conducting an in-person deposition it’s now common to employ a professional legal videographer to document the proceedings, as video and multi-media presentations are now pretty much expected by all parties during litigation proceedings.

Our experienced videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment to help ensure that you always get the footage you need. Our talented video editors provide no-less-valuable services, including media enhancement, linear editing, nonlinear editing, video duplication, and video conversion.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a smartphone can record the video for your deposition or hearing. As long as you’re hiring a knowledgeable
court reporter why not add a professional legal videographer who has extensive experience filming in a legal setting? It could be the difference-maker in terms of achieving a positive outcome for your client.

Need a Video Conferencing Solution in DeWitt 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, frequently
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 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.
