Court Reporter in Katy, 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 Katy, Texas?
Every year our interpreting services business grows a little more. That’s because many parties to lawsuits come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language—or even a second language. For attorneys and paralegals, this can pose an ongoing problem; it’s not always easy to find a capable
interpreter who is capable of providing interpretation services within your time frame, particularly if it’s a less common language or dialect.
But we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. We’re capable of supplying certified court reporters and interpreters for virtually any language or dialect, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. More specifically, we can arrange for interpreting services for over a hundred different languages and dialects, including Spanish, German, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Mandarin, Russian, and Arabic. Have a need for interpreting services for a language less ordinarily
heard in the U.S., like Afrikaans, perhaps? Give us a call today; most likely we can help.
Need a Legal Videographer in Katy, TX?
More and more, one of those litigation support needs is finding an interpreter who can help facilitate your deposition or other legal hearing. As you know, many parties to lawsuits—especially in major cities—don’t speak English as a first language. And if it’s your client, you want a best-in-class interpreter who can provide an accurate translation of conversations and make your client as comfortable as possible.
As you also know, finding an interpreter who is capable of providing interpretation services within a limited time frame can be a challenge, particularly if a less common language or dialect is involved. But we believe that any national court reporting agency should be capable of removing any and all language barriers. That’s why we take pride in supplying interpreters for most any language you’re likely to encounter in the continental United States.
In fact, we can arrange for interpreting services for well over a hundred different languages and dialects, including commonly spoken languages like Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and Arabic. Meanwhile, we can also provide an option for languages that are less commonly heard here in America, not to mention sign language services for the hearing impaired. Basically, anything short of an obscure invented language and we can probably help.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Waller County, TX?
Almost as oft-used as our legal videographers are our video conferencing solutions, which are invaluable when it isn’t possible or practical to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition, arbitration hearing or mediation session.

It’s also worth remembering that it’s no more difficult for a firm like ours to arrange a multi-site video conference than a single-site conference.
