Court Reporter in 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 notable
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 precise
, certain, 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
  • Interpreters
  • Legal Videographers
  • Legal Videoconferencing
  • Streaming Depositions
  • LiveNote
  • E-Transcripts
  • Dailies
  • 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 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 knowledgeable
interpreter, especially if you’re dealing with a less ordinarily
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?

Another trend in the court reporting space is to employ a professional legal videographer to document legal proceedings. Video remains a powerful medium, particularly when a legal matter moves into the litigation stage and arguments are made in front of a judge or jury.

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. Our longtime clients have learned that a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference within the confines of a courtroom.

That’s why our experienced videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, helping to ensure that our clients always get the footage they need. Our esteemed video editors provide no-less-valuable services, including media enhancement, linear editing, nonlinear editing, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion.

Above all, don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a smartphone can record the audio and video for your mission-critical deposition. Better to be safe and employ seasoned pros who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting—professionals who will obsess over the smallest details to help get you the recordings you want and need.

Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Limestone County, TX?

Yet another common need among our esteemed clients is a video conferencing solution. Oftentimes, it’s just not practical to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition. That’s why we have made a commitment to providing our clients with a cutting-edge video conferencing solution, which allows you to take depositions remotely while still getting the same results you would in person.

In other words, thanks to technology you no longer need to be limited by geography—or need to travel to a remote location. Attorneys and other law firm employees know that getting on a plane to travel to deposition can be expensive and time-consuming. With video conferencing, you can reduce travel costs and limit other expenses, while also avoiding the hassle associated with coordinating a deposition in an unfamiliar city.

Whether you need a single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference we can help. We have access to countless locations and conference rooms across the country, and our trained specialists excel at coordinating the needed
logistics. In fact, when you enlist our video conferencing services for a deposition or other legal proceeding, we provide you with 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 of the needed
equipment, ensuring high-speed Internet access, and linking two or more locations. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment with high-definition video and our equipment is compatible with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Our conference rooms come fully furnished and all have large monitors, plus all of the amenities you might expect.

Last but not least, we also provide technical support throughout the proceeding so that you can concentrate on questioning your subject and don’t need to worry about technical snafus.

Want to save time and money by using video conferencing for your next deposition? Give us a shout and give video conferencing a try.

Need Easy Access to Transcripts in 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.

So if you’re in need of a court reporter or any related services, don’t hesitate to give us a call whenever you’re ready. We’re one of the most respected national court reporting firms in the country, and you can rely on us to meet the needs of your law firm or corporate legal department.
