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?

Certified court reporters aside, two of the most commonly requested human resources we provide are interpreters and legal videographers.

Being able to find knowledgeable
interpreters is particularly important in this day and age, as many parties to legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language. As you probably know, this presents a daunting challenge for lawyers who want to make sure their clients’ voices are heard—and want to make sure that their clients fully understand the questions being asked of them during any given proceeding.

Yet it’s not necessarily easy for an attorney to find a knowledgeable
interpreter via an Internet search, especially if your client’s first language is decidedly uncommon here in the United States.

But we believe that a critical component of delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. So over the course of more than two decades we have developed a stable of talented interpreters for well over a hundred different languages. As a result, we can arrange for interpreting services for Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Swedish, Russian, French, Hindi, Mandarin or Arabic, among many others. While we might have to draw the line at providing an interpreter for an invented language, anything short of an Esperanto-to-English interpreter or Klingonese-to-English interpreter and we can probably help.

So whether you need an interpreter for a local arbitration hearing or a high-stakes international deposition, give us a call today!

Need a Legal Videographer in TX?

One thing we’re sure we can help with is providing a legal videographer. Over the course of our more than twenty-year history, we have also taken care to associate ourselves with the finest in professional legal videographers, all of whom have extensive experience shooting video in a legal setting. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a smartphone and a tripod can record the audio and video for your deposition or other proceeding.

Our legal videographers employ state-of-the-art technology capable of capturing the most subtle visual details—including positive or negative body language and revealing gestures and facial expressions. A single nuance captured on video can make the different between a successful outcome and a less than favorable outcome for a client.

That’s why our videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, helping to ensure that our clients always get the footage they need. Need a professional video editor to edit the raw footage? Our experienced editors can do that, while also offering valuable services like media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion.

Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Kent County, TX?

Our clients appreciate our desire to consistently capture important visual details—like positive or negative body language and revealing gestures & facial expressions.

  • Linear Editing
  • Non-Linear Editing
  • Audio and Video Duplication
  • Audio and Video Conversion
  • Post-Production Services
  • Image Enhancement

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a mobile phone or smartphone can record the audio and video for your deposition or other legal proceeding. Better to employ seasoned professionals who have been trained to film in a legal environment, pros who make a habit of obsessing over the details that help get you the recordings you want and need.
