Court Reporter in Howardwick, 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 extraordinary
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 consistent
, 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 Howardwick, Texas?
First and foremost, you want to retain a firm that provides professional, certified court reporters, whenever and wherever you need them. As one of the pre-eminent national court reporting agencies in the country, we can arrange for some of the best court reporters in the U.S. to work on your behalf, providing you with accurate, easily accessible transcripts of depositions, court appearances, and other types of legal hearings that occur before, after, or in lieu of a trial. Whether you’re in New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, or any major metropolitan area, we’re a convenient, one-stop solution for all of your litigation support needs.
Need a Legal Videographer in Howardwick, TX?
At the same time, more and more of our clients are enlisting our legal videographers to document legal proceedings. For most people, video remains the single-most powerful medium, particularly valuable when a legal matter reaches the courtroom and arguments are made in front of a judge or jury.
Our videographers employ state-of-the-art technology that can capture the most subtle visual details—including positive or negative body language and telling gestures or facial expressions. As we’re sure you know, a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference within the confines of a courtroom or judge’s chambers. That’s why our videographers use top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment so that our clients always get the footage they need. We typically film using multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with polished audio and video. After the fact, our experienced editors provide other valuable services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, and audio & video conversion and duplication.
Above all, don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a cell phone camera can film your deposition. It’s best practice to employ professionals who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting—professionals who understand the importance of lighting and camera position and have access to the kind of specialized equipment that makes the difference between amateur-looking video and the work of a professional.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Donley County, TX?
Yet another of our most frequently
requested solutions is video conferencing. On occasion, it’s not possible to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition. Whether it’s a matter of conflicting schedules or parties not living in the same metropolitan area, we are committed to helping you take a deposition remotely while still getting the results you would get from an in-person meeting. We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the country.
So don’t remain limited by geography. Traveling to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming, but with video conferencing, you can reduce travel costs, lodging costs, and related expenses, while avoiding the hassle associated with assembling all interested parties.
Of course, if you need a room, we can provide a conference room (or rooms). Whether you’re in need of a single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference, we have access to hundreds of locations across the country, so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs is a straightforward process.
One phone call is all that’s vital
. We will set up the video conference, which includes finding the locations, working out the logistics, supplying the video and recording equipment, testing the gear, ensuring working Internet access, and linking all relevant locations. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment that provides high-definition video and the sharpest possible audio. Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished and feature all the amenities you expect, including a multi-line hands-free phone system.
Naturally, we also provide technical support during the proceedings so that you can concentrate on taking the deposition and representing your client to the best of your ability. Liberate yourself from worrying about technical issues by letting us handle the video conferencing for your next deposition.
Need Easy Access to Transcripts in Howardwick, 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.
