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 frequently
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, calmly
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?
One of the major benefits of working with a national court reporting agency like ours is that we have relationships with a large stable of interpreters covering more than a hundred languages and dialects. As you know, the parties to lawsuits and other legal matters often come from diverse backgrounds and may not speak English. If you’re a lawyer or paralegal you don’t want to spend your time and energy searching for a experienced
interpreter, especially if you’re dealing with a less frequently
spoken language. Leave it to us to find an interpreter who can provide the services you need, when you need them.
It’s all part of our ongoing effort to meet our clients’ varied litigation support needs, whatever they may be. In fact, we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. We can arrange for interpreting services for languages like Mandarin, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Japanese, Russian, and Arabic, as well as many, many more. We are prepared to provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, in addition to the translation of documents during discovery. So whether you need an interpreter for a local case, an international deposition, or an administrative hearing, we can make sure that all your needs and requirements are met.
Need a Legal Videographer in TX?
Alternatively, if you’re conducting an in-person deposition it’s now common to employ a professional legal videographer to document the proceedings, as video and multi-media presentations are now pretty much expected by all parties during litigation proceedings.
Our experienced videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment to help ensure that you always get the footage you need. Our talented video editors provide no-less-valuable services, including media enhancement, linear editing, nonlinear editing, video duplication, and video conversion.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a smartphone can record the video for your deposition or hearing. As long as you’re hiring a experienced
court reporter why not add a professional legal videographer who has extensive experience filming in a legal setting? It could be the difference-maker in terms of achieving a positive outcome for your client.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Hays County, TX?
For those instances when it’s not possible to have everyone physically present in the same room for a deposition or administrative hearing, we offer cutting-edge video conferencing solutions. Our longtime clients will tell you that we are committed to helping clients take depositions remotely while getting much the same results as you would if the deposition occurred in person.
So don’t remain limited by the constraints of geography. With video conferencing, you can eliminate travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, and avoid the hassle associated with getting all of the parties together in one room.
Know too that we can also provide a room (or rooms) for your single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference. We have access to hundreds of locations around the country so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs is always an easy process.
In fact, one phone call is all it takes. We’ll provide options for locations, work out the logistics, supply the A/V equipment, test the equipment, ensuring working Internet access, and link two or more locations. We always utilize state-of-the-art equipment with HD video, and our equipment is compatible with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet, king-size monitors, and all the amenities you would expect from a first-class video conferencing solution. And we always itemize the details regarding the arrangements that have been made on your behalf.
Last but not least, we also provide technical support before, during, and after the deposition or hearing so that you can concentrate on your work. You never have to worry about disconnects or other technical issues.
Need Easy Access to Transcripts in TX?
Technology has had a remarkable effect on legal proceedings by making organization a guiding principle of many attorneys during the deposition process. In fact, the attorney who can stay organized and quickly access the necessary information is often the one who ends up winning the case. As such, you may find yourself desiring access to case transcripts and documents at a moment’s notice. What you want right now is a court reporting service that can supply you with instant access to the documents you need for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other legal proceeding. This means being able to view your case information with just one keystroke on a computer, an iPad, an iPhone, or any other mobile device connected to the internet.
Online Access to Calendar, Transcripts, and Exhibits for Your Deposition
We will provide you with full online and mobile access to everything regarding your case, including a personal online calendar, case transcripts, exhibits, scheduling, and billing account information and invoices. The online system allows you to view and downloaded anything you need 24/7. Additionally, our online case management system is secure so that only you and those you designate (other attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries) will have access to highly sensitive materials in your case.

We offer professional case management to ensure that your legal matter is handled efficiently.
