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 intermittentlymaking 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, freely
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?
More and more, our clients are looking for the services of both a court reporter and interpreter. Many parties to lawsuits—especially in major cities—hail from a wide variety of places and don’t speak English.
As we’re sure you know, this can pose a problem for lawyers and paralegals alike, as it’s not always easy to find an interpreter who is capable of providing interpretation services within the required time frame, particularly if it’s a less common language or dialect. In some instances, you might need a court reporter who can provide interpretation services in multiple languages.
We believe that any national court reporting firm worth its salt should be able to remove any and all language barriers. That’s why we take pride in supplying licensed court reporters and interpreters for most any language or dialect you’re likely to encounter in the United States.
That is, we can arrange for interpreting services for upwards of 140 different languages and dialects, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and Arabic.
Have a need for an interpreter who speaks a much less common language? Anything short of an obscure invented language and we can probably help. Of course, we also provide sign language services for the hearing impaired.
Need a Legal Videographer in TX?
Another trend in the court reporting space is to employ a professional legal videographer to document legal proceedings. Video remains a powerful medium, particularly when a legal matter moves into the litigation stage and arguments are made in front of a judge or jury.
Our legal videographers employ state-of-the-art technology capable of capturing the most subtle visual details—including positive or negative body language and revealing gestures and facial expressions. Our longtime clients have learned that a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference within the confines of a courtroom.
That’s why our experienced videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, helping to ensure that our clients always get the footage they need. Our esteemed video editors provide no-less-valuable services, including media enhancement, linear editing, nonlinear editing, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion.
Above all, don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a smartphone can record the audio and video for your mission-critical deposition. Better to be safe and employ seasoned pros who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting—professionals who will obsess over the smallest details to help get you the recordings you want and need.
