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
- Video Conferencing
- RealTime (Reporting and Transcripts)
- Post-Production Services
- Video Conversion
- Streaming Depositions
- Conference Rooms
Need an Interpreter for a deposition in Texas?
More and more, our clients are looking for the services of both a court reporter and interpreter. Many parties to lawsuits—especially in major cities—hail from a wide variety of places and don’t speak English.
As we’re sure you know, this can pose a problem for lawyers and paralegals alike, as it’s not always easy to find an interpreter who is capable of providing interpretation services within the required time frame, particularly if it’s a less common language or dialect. In some instances, you might need a court reporter who can provide interpretation services in multiple languages.
We believe that any national court reporting firm worth its salt should be able to remove any and all language barriers. That’s why we take pride in supplying licensed court reporters and interpreters for most any language or dialect you’re likely to encounter in the United States.
That is, we can arrange for interpreting services for upwards of 140 different languages and dialects, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and Arabic.
Have a need for an interpreter who speaks a much less common language? Anything short of an obscure invented language and we can probably help. Of course, we also provide sign language services for the hearing impaired.
Need a Legal Videographer in TX?
Sometimes, it’s just 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 near each other, We are %committed to helping you take a deposition remotely while still getting the same face-to-face impact you would have in person. We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the world.
Don’t be limited by geography. Coordinating travel for the various parties to a deposition can be expensive and time consuming. With video conferencing, you can cut down on travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, as well as avoid the hassle associated with getting all of the parties together for a deposition.
Get Access to Conference Room Locations Throughout the World for Your Deposition
Depending on the number of physical locations needed for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other litigation proceeding, we can provide a single-site videoconference or a multi-site videoconference. We have access to hundreds of locations across the country and throughout the world, so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs will be easy.
Sophisticated Technology & Technical Support for Video Conferencing Your Deposition
One simple phone call does it all. We will take care of the videoconference setup, which includes selecting the locations, working out the logistics, supplying sophisticated video and recording equipment, testing the equipment, ensuring working internet access, assisting with transfer of transcripts and other documents, and linking two or more locations for your deposition. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment with high-definition video, sharp audio, and compatibility with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished and have high-speed internet connections, video capabilities, large monitors, and other amenities.
We also provide technical support throughout the legal proceeding so that you can concentrate on your deposition. You won’t have to worry about disconnects or other technical issues during the deposition.
Schedule Video Conferencing Services for Your Next Deposition
We are passionate about what we do. When you enlist our video conferencing services for a deposition or other legal proceeding, we will give you a detailed outline of what you can expect from us. Save time and money by using video conferencing for your next deposition.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Fort Bend 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?
Of course, your work doesn’t end when a deposition is completed. Over the years we’ve found that the attorney who can stay organized and quickly access all relevant information is the one most likely to secure a favorable outcome for his or her client. That’s why a court reporting agency that can supply you with instant access to the documents you need is invaluable. And it’s why we provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case; including:
- Case Transcripts
Moreover, all documents are indexed for easy identification. As a result, you can use the online system to search for documents, download exhibits, and export deposition text. Need physical copies of exhibits or transcripts? We also provide traditional imaging and copying services, as well as physical depositories.
