Court Reporter in Helotes, 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 incredible
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 timely
, 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

As for our services, the three most requested solutions we provide—aside from certified court reporters—are:
Need an Interpreter for a deposition in Helotes, Texas?
One of the best reasons to consider a national court reporting agency is that it can regularly
provide many complimentary services—efficient
interpreters, for instance. As you know, many parties to lawsuits and other legal proceedings don’t speak English as a first language—or even a second or third language.
If you’re a lawyer or paralegals this can be a frustrating challenge, as it’s not always easy to find an interpreter who capable of providing interpretation services within the required time frame, particularly if you need someone in a city other than your own.
That’s why we’ve long made it a priority to remove any and all language barriers for our clients and why we take pride in supplying both licensed court reporters and efficient
More specifically, we can arrange for interpreting services for upwards of 140 different languages, including Spanish, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Russian, and Arabic. Have a need for an interpreter who speaks a much less common language? Anything short of an invented language like Esperanto or Klingonese (the latter is spoken by Klingons in the fictional Star Trek universe, and believe it or not, some people do speak Klingon) we can probably help.
Need a Legal Videographer in Helotes, 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.
