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 phenomenal
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
, 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
- Legal Videographers
- Legal Videoconferencing
- Streaming Depositions
- 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?
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 Mitchell 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?
Finally, we’re especially proud of our secure online case management system, which is used to access transcripts and other documents related to your account. If you’re like most of our clients, after a deposition or hearing is over you need your transcripts sooner rather than later—and you need to be able to access them quickly and freely
Fortunately, the Internet has had a transformative effect on the legal industry by streamlining the process of doing research and searching for documents. Thanks to our secure system you have 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 platform allows you to view and download anything you need 24/7, with access to sensitive materials restricted to the attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate.
To help maximize efficiency, essential documents are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our searchable system, from which you can download exhibits, print materials, and export deposition text. If you need physical copies of documents or transcripts, we also provide copying services. And technical assistance from one of the dedicated members of our support team is never more than a phone call away. Our experienced technicians are available day and night and will work with you to address your specific questions and needs.
So if you want the most talented and technologically-advanced court reporting company in the U.S. working for you and your law firm, give us a call today and give us a try.
We look forward to working with you and your colleagues.
