Court Reporter in TX | Texas

It’s a periodically
asked question: What does a court reporter do and what are the services that a full-service court reporting company provides? As you might expect, not all court reporters and court reporting firms are created equal. Part of the reason is that the court reporter role requires a diverse array of skills and wisdom
.

Among other things, a court reporter needs knowledge of shorthand reporting, legal recordkeeping practices, and legal terminology. He or she must also have incredible
spelling, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary skills. It’s a job that also requires tremendous mental and physical stamina, as one must listen attentively and record everything that is said during depositions and administrative hearings. Speed and accuracy are of the essence, and a court reporter must also communicate effectively—both orally and in writing. And it almost goes without saying, but a court reporter must be expeditious
, staunch
, and flexible.

At our national court reporting agency, we look for all of the above skills and traits—and more. That’s why we’ve been able to satisfy our demanding clients for more than two decades, and why we remain one of the most respected names in the industry. So if you’re in need of an agency to provide you with certified and licensed court reporters and stenographers on an ongoing basis, we should be your first call.

We’re looking to build relationships with law firms and corporate legal departments that need an agency with the size and resources to assist you whenever and wherever your legal work takes you. In addition to certified court reporters we also provide interpreters, legal videographers, video conferencing solutions, conference rooms, and a secure online document repository, along with all of the following:

  • Streaming Depositions

Our well-trained support staff is also available for technology consulting so that you can focus on what matters most in your case: doing legal work and representing your client.

Need an Interpreter for a deposition in Texas?

Video is a powerful document in legal matters, particularly when those matters reach the courtroom and must be argued in front of a judge or jury. If you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, make sure that they employ expert videographers with technology that can capture the most important visual details – positive or negative body language, facial expressions that don’t match the tone of voice, and even the slightest gestures that might indicate witness coaching. A single nuance captured on video could make all the difference in the world when it comes to a settlement negotiation or a courtroom presentation.

Additionally, you may require editing by dedicated specialists after the shoot. we offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion for other formats like MPEG, DVD, CD, and VHS.

Arrange for a Professional Legal Videographer to Shoot Your Deposition

Do not make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a camera and tripod can film your deposition. You need professionals who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position, and who have access to specialized equipment that can capture sharp video images and crystal-clear audio of your deposition.

Our videographers always utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound gear so that clients get the footage they need. We will shoot live, using high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with a polished videotape of your depo that is synchronized with the reporter’s transcript. Let us help you with your deposition.

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.
