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
- Video Conferencing
- RealTime (Reporting and Transcripts)
- Post-Production Services
- Video Conversion
- Streaming Depositions
- Conference Rooms
Need an Interpreter for a deposition in Texas?
Certified court reporters aside, two of the most commonly requested human resources we provide are interpreters and legal videographers.
Being able to find trained interpreters is particularly important in this day and age, as many parties to legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language. As you probably know, this presents a daunting challenge for lawyers who want to make sure their clients’ voices are heard—and want to make sure that their clients fully understand the questions being asked of them during any given proceeding.
Yet it’s not necessarily easy for an attorney to find a trained interpreter via an Internet search, especially if your client’s first language is decidedly uncommon here in the United States.
But we believe that a critical component of delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. So over the course of more than two decades we have developed a stable of talented interpreters for well over a hundred different languages. As a result, we can arrange for interpreting services for Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Swedish, Russian, French, Hindi, Mandarin or Arabic, among many others. While we might have to draw the line at providing an interpreter for an invented language, anything short of an Esperanto-to-English interpreter or Klingonese-to-English interpreter and we can probably help.
So whether you need an interpreter for a local arbitration hearing or a high-stakes international deposition, give us a call today!
Need a Legal Videographer in TX?
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a handheld camera and tripod can record your deposition. You need a professional who has been trained to film in a legal setting, a pro who understands the importance of carefully-produced lighting and sound and has access to specialized equipment.
Our legal videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment so our clients get the footage they need. We also use high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras to provide you with a polished video of your deposition or hearing, one that is synchronized with the reporter’s transcript.
Additionally, if you require editing by dedicated specialists after the shoot, we offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion for other formats (including DVD).
As we’re sure you know, video can be an valuable
tool in the legal arena. Make sure you have access to experienced videographers capable of capturing the most important visual details—like negative body language or facial expressions that don’t match the tone of voice. A single nuance captured on video can make all the difference when it comes to a settlement negotiation or a courtroom argument.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Orange County, TX?
Another technology we offer that you’ll almost certainly want to take advantage is Real-time software, which translates stenographic shorthand into English. With Real-time reporting, you can have a transcript delivered to your laptop in real time as the deposition or hearing is taking place. One of the big advantages of a real-time solution is that you can search, highlight, or annotate portions of the transcript as it is delivered, allowing you to use the information during the course of the proceedings. It’s a distinct advantage, particularly if the opposing party doesn’t have the resources to commission the use of this technology.
Secure Online Case Management
Finally, one other way in which technology can make a litigator’s life much easier is via an online document repository like the one we have developed for the use of our clients. Thanks to our platform you have online and mobile access to everything related to your case, including case transcripts and exhibits, plus schedules, account information, invoices, and a personal calendar.
In other words, our online case management system allows you—and those attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate—to access any materials you need, 24/7. Of course, all documents are indexed for easy reference. So you can use our system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text.
Questions? Our Technical Support Team Can Help
Of course, if you have any questions about any of the technology utilized in our solutions, our technical support team is available day and night to guide you through our systems and resolve any issues. A dedicated case manager is also assigned to your account and devoted to making sure that you receive superior service. Your case manager can also help to arrange decidedly old-fashioned services—like imaging and photo copying—or arrange for an interpreter to join a court reporter on an assignment.
Need Easy Access to Transcripts in TX?
Over the course of the last 20 years, interpreters have become a larger and larger part of our business. As you know, many parties to lawsuits—especially in major metropolitan areas—don’t speak English. As you also know, it’s not necessarily easy for lawyers and paralegals to find an interpreter capable of providing interpretation services within a limited time frame. That’s why we take pride in supplying interpreters for most any language or dialect you’re likely to encounter in the United States.
We can arrange interpreting services for upwards of 140 different languages, including Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, French, and Arabic. Have a need for an interpreter who speaks a less common language—or a particular dialect? We can help. We also provide sign language services for the hearing impaired.
