Court Reporter in Brookshire, 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 unprecedented
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 prompt, true
, 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 Brookshire, 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 capable
interpreter, especially if you’re dealing with a less often
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 Brookshire, 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 Waller 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 Brookshire, TX?
Finally, once the bulk of your work is done, your transcript and all materials related to your account can be accessed 24/7 in our secure online document repository. We provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case.
