Court Reporter in TX | Texas
If you’re a lawyer or a paralegal at a law firm, hiring court reporters may be one of your responsibilities. And unless you’re new to litigation and litigation practices you probably have a good sense of the cost to hire a court reporter.
So as you may know, a court reporter generally charges by the hour, plus a fee for each page of transcript produced, with the latter regularly
making up the larger part of the cost. Rates for depositions and arbitration hearings may differ, and rates can be higher for complex medical or technical testimony. If you need a condensed transcript or need a transcript on an expedited basis that typically costs extra too.
But the main thing you want to make sure of when considering the cost to hire a court reporter is to make sure you’re making an apples to apples comparison. For example, the industry standard for a page of transcript averages around 50 to 65 characters per line with 25 lines per page. If the pages you receive deviate significantly from the industry average that could dramatically affect your total cost.
But another big factor in determining whether you are comparing apples to apples is the breadth and quality of services offered by the court reporting firms in question. For instance, a local court reporting agency might do a great job in your hometown, but lack the resources and connections to provide services in other cities, or the ability to offer complementary litigation support services.
Many law firms find that a full-service court reporting agency best meets their needs, as such a firm can not only provide certified court reporters capable of handling complex testimony (like highly technical or complex medical terminology), but also provide many valuable ancillary services that are both convenient and cost-effective. For instance, a full-service court reporting agency can save you time and money by securing the services of legal videographers and interpreters, in addition to the court reporter. They can also assist in securing conference rooms, arranging video conferences, providing a secure online transcript repository with 24/7 access, and providing transcripts in multiple formats.
We are just such a full-service agency, providing licensed/certified court reporters, stenographers, video conferencing technology, and online case management services to attorneys and corporate clients who need to take a deposition. For more than two decades, we have excelled at meeting the expectations of our corporate clients and law firm clients, providing them with accurate, comfortably
accessible transcripts of depositions and other legal proceedings. Whether you’re in New York or Philadelphia, Phoenix or Los Angeles, or anywhere in between, we can help.
In other words, as a full-service court reporting agency, we offer the following services to our esteemed clients.
- Certified Court Reporters
- Conference Rooms
- Legal Videographers
- Videoconferencing Solutions
- Internet Real-time
- Real-time Reporting & Transcripts
- Streaming Depositions
- Online Repository with Personal Calendar
- Post-Production Services
Any while many of our clients most appreciate our ability to provide them with best-in-class court reporters, others find our relationships with interpreters and legal videographers to be most valuable. Still, others laud our video conferencing solutions and the ease of utilizing our online case management system/document repository.
Read on to learn more about each.
Need an Interpreter for a deposition in Texas?
Every year our interpreting services business grows a little more. That’s because many parties to lawsuits come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language—or even a second language. For attorneys and paralegals, this can pose an ongoing problem; it’s not always easy to find a experienced
interpreter who is capable of providing interpretation services within your time frame, particularly if it’s a less common language or dialect.
But we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. We’re capable of supplying certified court reporters and interpreters for virtually any language or dialect, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. More specifically, we can arrange for interpreting services for over a hundred different languages and dialects, including Spanish, German, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Mandarin, Russian, and Arabic. Have a need for interpreting services for a language less regularly
heard in the U.S., like Afrikaans, perhaps? Give us a call today; most likely we can help.
Need a Legal Videographer in TX?

Using our secure online case system you have online and mobile access to everything related to your case, including transcripts, exhibits, and schedules, and as well as invoices and a personal online calendar. This way your attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries can access any materials they need, 24/7/365.
