Online Document Repository Provides Easy Access to Deposition Transcripts Illinois

In fact, one offering that our clients always appreciate is our online document repository, which enables you to find and access what you need for your case, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. All documents are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our online case management system. You can use the system to search for documents, download exhibits, and export deposition text with the click of a mouse. If you require physical copies of case documents or transcripts, we also provide traditional imaging and copying services.

And again, when you use us for a deposition, you receive personal technical assistance from the dedicated members of our support staff and tech support team. Our technicians will work with you to introduce you to our online document repository, and staffers are available day and night to answer any questions you may have.

Additionally, the secure online case management system features a personal online calendar, scheduling information, access to exhibits, invoices, and billing account information. Only those individuals you designate (i.e., other attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries, for example) have access to the materials in Illinois.

Professional Legal Videographers | IL

At the same time, more and more of our clients are enlisting our legal videographers to document legal proceedings. Naturally, video is a powerful medium, particularly when a legal matter reaches the courtroom and arguments are made in front of a judge or jury. Our videographers employ state-of-the-art technology that can capture the most subtle visual details – including positive or negative body language, and telling gestures or facial expressions. As you probably know, a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference in the world within the confines of a courtroom. That’s why our videographers always utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, so that our clients get the footage they need. We typically film using multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with polished audio and video. Our well-respected editors provide no-less-valuable services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a smartphone camera can film your deposition. Better to be safe than sorry and use professionals who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting—professionals who understand the importance of lighting and camera position, and who have access to the kind of specialized equipment that makes the difference between amateur and professional in IL.

Video Conferencing Solutions for Depositions | IL

And for those situations when it’s not possible or practical to assemble all parties in the same room at the same time, we can provide a video conferencing solution of the highest quality that enables you to take a deposition or conduct a hearing from just about anywhere in the world. So don’t be constrained by geography. And don’t suffer the stress of scheduling a deposition in a remote location. With our video conferencing solutions, you can cut down on travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, and also avoid the hassle associated with getting all parties together in the same place at the same time.

Certified Court Reporters and Interpreting Services for your Deposition in Illinois

 

These days, many parties to lawsuits and other legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and may not speak English as their first, second or even third language. Sometimes, this can pose problems for attorneys because it’s not necessarily easy to find an interpreter who is capable of translating a particular language within the time frame in question. Depending on your circumstances, you might even need a court reporter that is prepared to work with you to provide the necessary transcription in multiple languages. This is why many of our longtime clients find this to be an increasingly valuable and oft-used part of our service.

As you can probably tell by now, we work hard to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs, whatever they may be. We believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. That’s why we supply certified court reporters and interpreters for virtually any language or dialect you might encounter, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. In fact, we can arrange for interpreting and translation services for over 140 different languages, including Mandarin, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Polish, Japanese, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic, among many others. In addition to being prepared to provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, we can also provide translation services during the discovery process. So whether you need an interpreter for a local case, an international deposition, or an arbitration hearing or mediation session, we can make sure that all your needs and requirements are met.
