Court Reporters in Paw Paw IL | 312-736-7780 | Illinois Stenographers

It’s a frequently asked question: What does a court reporting agency do and what are the services that a full-service court reporting company can provide? After all, not all court reporting firms are created equal, and not every court reporter will meet your needs, expectation, or budget.

In a nutshell, a national full-service court reporting agency like ours provides certified and/or licensed court reporters, stenographers, and interpreters, as well as related services like legal videography, video conferencing solutions, and secure online document management. On the other hand, a local court reporting firm is likely to be limited to finding local solutions, which can be limiting if your legal work extends beyond your own metropolitan area.

That’s why it’s advantageous to build a relationship with an established, national court reporting agency that has the size and resources to assist you whenever your legal work takes you. For over 20 years, we have excelled at meeting the expectations of our clients and providing them with accurate transcripts of depositions, arbitrations, mediations, and other types of legal hearings. Whether you’re from a small law firm, a large law firm, or work for a corporation, we can help meet your court reporting needs anywhere in the United States.

We provide our esteemed clients with:

  • Interpreters

As such, we are prepared to assist you with your deposition or other legal hearing. Our team of certified court reporters, stenographers, interpreters, and legal videographers can meet any and all of your needs. Better yet, our team members utilize state-of-the-art equipment so that you won’t miss ever miss a word, gesture, or facial expression from your deposition. We also handle depositions in all major U.S. cities, so we can provide you with a fully furnished conference room in Paw Paw that has all of the expected amenities and services, including Wi-Fi and multi-line phones.

Then, in the wake of your deposition, arbitration, or mediation hearing, you can count on us to help you manage transcripts and related documents and exhibits.

Online Access to Calendar, Transcripts, and Exhibits for Your Deposition Illinois

That’s one reason we have devoted extensive resources to developing and providing a secure online case management system, one that provides you with online and mobile access to everything regarding your case, including access to case transcripts, exhibits, an online calendar, and billing account information and invoices. The online system allows you—and those attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate—to view and download any documents you need twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

This includes access to our online document repository, where all documents are indexed.

If you need physical copies of case documents or transcripts, we provide traditional imaging and copying services as well in Paw Paw, Illinois.

Arrange for a Professional Legal Videographer to Film Your Deposition | Paw Paw, IL

Fortunately, though, legal videographers tend to speak much the same language—communicating their message through the power of an audio-video recording. As we’re sure you recognize, video can be an especially powerful medium when it comes to legal matters. If you need a court reporting service to record a deposition or hearing, you want to make sure that they employ expert videographers using the kind of cutting-edge technology that is capable of capturing the most subtle visual details, like positive or negative body language, facial expressions that don’t match the tone of voice, and gestures that may be indicative of witness coaching. A single nuance captured on video can make all the difference in the world when it comes to a settlement negotiation or courtroom argument.

So don’t fall into the trap of thinking that anyone with a camera and tripod can film your deposition and get the results you need. Insist on utilizing professionals who have been trained to film in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position, and who utilize top-of-the-line lighting and equipment in Paw Paw, IL.

Video Conferencing Solutions | Paw Paw, IL

Yet another of our most commonly requested solutions is video conferencing. On occasion, it’s not possible to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition. Whether it’s a matter of conflicting schedules or parties not living near each other, we are committed to helping you take a deposition remotely while still getting the results you expect. We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the world.

So don’t remain limited by geography. Coordinating travel to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming. With video conferencing, you can reduce travel costs, lodging costs, and related expenses, while avoiding the hassle associated with assembling all interested parties in the same room.

Of course, if you need a room, we can provide a conference room or rooms. Whether you’re doing a single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference, we have access to hundreds of locations across the country and throughout the world, so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs will be easy.

One phone call is all it takes. We will set up the video conference (this includes finding the location(s), working out the logistics, supplying the video and recording equipment, testing the equipment, ensuring working internet access, and linking two or more locations). We utilize state-of-the-art equipment that provides HD video and sharp audio. Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished with all the amenities and features you should come to expect, including a multi-line hands-free phone system.

Naturally, we also provide technical support before, during, and after the proceeding so that you can concentrate on taking the deposition. Liberate yourself from worry about technical issues and whether the recording is working or not. Give us a call today and let us handle the video conferencing for your next deposition. Before you know it, you will have the specifics of what we’ve arranged and a detailed outline of what you can expect.

This is part of the technological advantage we can provide as a full-service court reporting agency. As you know, attorneys who can stay organized and work efficiently have that much more time to devote to their cases and their clients.

Interpreters and Interpreting Services for Depositions and Other Hearings in Paw Paw, Illinois

 

More and more, our clients are taking advantage of our interpreting services when hiring a court reporter. That’s because many parties to lawsuits come from diverse places and backgrounds and don’t always speak English as a first language—or even a second or third language. For attorneys and paralegals this can pose a problem; 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 other cases you might need a court reporter prepared to provide interpretation services in several different languages.

But we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing any and all language barriers. We’re capable of supplying certified court reporters and interpreters for virtually any language or dialect, not to mention sign language for the hearing impaired. More specifically, we can arrange for interpreting services for approximately 140 different languages and dialects, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and Arabic. Have a need for interpreting services involving a much less common language? Give us a call today—we can help.
