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, quickly
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?
In recent years one of our most popular add-on solutions has been video conferencing services. As you know, it’s often not 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 the latest in video conferencing technology, which allows you to take depositions remotely while still getting the kind of results you would in person.
That means the days of getting on a plane to fly to a deposition are largely over, assuming that’s your preference. (No doubt that’s a preference of many of your budget-conscious clients.) With a video conferencing solution, you can reduce or eliminate travel costs and cut back on other expenses, and save the aggravation of coordinating a deposition in a remote location.
And these days you’re not limited to a single-site video conference solution. Our longtime clients know that we have access to hundreds of locations across the country and that our trained specialists excel at coordinating multi-site conference solutions.
In each case, we take care of all the logistics, which includes: selecting the location(s), supplying and testing all necessary equipment, ensuring Internet access, and linking two or more locales.
We also utilize state-of-the-art equipment with high-definition video and our equipment is compatible with all of your computers and mobile devices. Our conference rooms come furnished and have high-speed Internet, plus large monitors and all the amenities you might expect from a best-in-class solution.
Last but not least, we also provide technical support throughout the proceedings so that you can concentrate on advocating for your client without worrying about technical hiccups.
The bottom line is that 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 our video conferencing solution a try.
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.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Midland County, TX?
An oft-overlooked capability of a national court reporting agency like ours is the ability to provide professional legal videographers who document legal proceedings using state-of-the-art A/V equipment, which helps to ensure that our demanding clients always get the footage they need. Our clients appreciate our desire to consistently capture important visual details—like positive or negative body language and revealing gestures & facial expressions. After all, a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference to the outcome of a case. Our video editors also play a critical role in the process, providing clients with the following services:
- 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.
Need Easy Access to Transcripts in TX?
Of course, after your deposition or hearing is over you need your transcripts in a timely fashion—and you need to be able to access them quickly and quickly
. Technology has had a transformative effect on the legal industry by making organization and efficiency a mission-critical aspect of running a successful law firm. Attorneys who stay organized and maximize their efficiency have a distinct advantage as compared to less organized opposing counsel. That’s why you want a resourceful court reporting service that can supply you with instant access to the documents you need. This includes being able to view materials with just a click of a mouse on a desktop or laptop—or a single swipe on a tablet or smartphone.
Know that if you choose us and utilize our secure online case management system we will provide you with online and mobile access to all materials related to your cases and account. This includes transcripts and exhibits, plus invoices, billing information, and an online calendar. In other words, our secure system allows you to view and download anything you need 24/7/365, with access to highly sensitive materials restricted to the attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate to have access.
To help maximize efficiency, essential documents are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our searchable system, which also allows you to download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text. If you need physical copies of documents or transcripts, we also provide traditional imaging and copying services.
Moreover, when you use us for your depositions or hearings, you receive technical assistance from the dedicated members of our support team. Our experienced technicians are available day and night and will work with you to address your specific questions and needs.
