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 certified
interpreter, especially if you’re dealing with a less generally
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?

Meanwhile, the need for experienced, certified
interpreters has arguably never been higher. That’s because many parties to lawsuits—especially in major metropolitan areas—don’t speak English as a first language. But if you’re a lawyer or paralegal, you know that finding a certified
interpreter in a timely fashion can be a monumental challenge, particularly if a less common language or dialect is involved. Yet we believe that any national court reporting agency worth its salt should be capable of removing language barriers. That’s why we take pride in supplying interpreters for most any language you’re likely to encounter in the continental U.S.

That means we can arrange for interpreting services for well over a hundred different languages and dialects, including commonly spoken languages like Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, French, and Arabic. We can also provide an interpreter for languages that are less commonly heard here in America, as well as sign language services for the hearing impaired. Basically, anything short of an obscure invented language like Esperanto and we can probably help.

Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Kerr County, TX?

Finally, another frequent need among our clientele is a video conferencing solution. As you know, it’s not always possible or practical to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition. That’s why we have made it a priority to be able to provide our clients with top quality video conferencing solutions, which allow you to take depositions remotely while still getting the kind of results you would in person.

In other words, thanks to the latest in video conferencing technology you no longer need to be limited by geographic boundaries—or feel the pressure to travel to a remote location. Veteran trial attorneys know that getting on an airplane to fly to a deposition can be time-consuming, not to mention a big added expense for budget-conscious clients. With a video conferencing solution, you can reduce or eliminate travel costs and cut back on other expenses, and save your paralegal the aggravation of coordinating a deposition in a remote locale.

Better yet, it’s no more trouble to arrange a multi-site video conference than a single-site video conference. Our loyal clients know that we have access to hundreds of locations across the country and that our trained specialists excel at coordinating even the most complicated logistics. Further peace of mind comes from the fact that we provide a detailed outline of what you can expect from us.

We take care of the video conference setup, which includes selecting the location(s), working out the logistics, supplying and testing all paramount
equipment, ensuring Internet access, and linking two or more locations. We utilize state-of-the-art gear with hi-definition video and our equipment is compatible with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Our conference rooms come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet, plus large monitors and all the amenities you might expect.

Last but not least, we also provide technical support throughout the proceeding so that you can concentrate on doing the best job possible for your client, and don’t need to worry about any technical malfunctions.

All in all, we believe you’ll save time and money by using our video conferencing services for your next deposition. So give us a call and give video conferencing a try.

Need Easy Access to Transcripts in TX?

Finally, once the bulk of your work is done, your transcript and all materials related to your account can be accessed 24/7 in our secure online document repository. We provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case.

This includes transcripts, exhibits, schedules, invoices, and even a personal calendar. All of the docs are indexed for easy identification and you can use system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and export deposition text. Need physical copies of case documents or transcripts? We provide traditional imaging and copying services as well.

And if you need help utilizing the document repository, you can always reach out to your dedicated case manager or a trusted member of our technical support team. In addition to coordinating your deposition schedule and assigning court reporters & interpreters, your case manager’s responsibilities include addressing any questions or concerns you may have.

We’re one of the largest and most respected national court reporting agencies in the country, and you can rely on us to meet the needs of your law firm or corporate legal department.
