Online Case Management Illinois

Another area in which we can give you a leg up on the competition is through organization. The reality is that attorneys who can readily access mission-critical information have an advantage over opponents and peers alike. If you find yourself desiring easy access to case transcripts and documents at a moment’s notice we can help supply you with instant access to the documents needed. This includes the ability to view case information with just one keystroke or tap, either at your desktop or while using any mobile device connected to the Internet.

Online Access to Transcripts and Exhibits

As part of our full-service court reporting solutions, we provide you with online and mobile access to all materials related to your case, including a personal online calendar, transcripts, exhibits, and even and billing account information and invoices. Our online system allows you to view and download any materials you need—twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Additionally, our secure platform is set up so that only you and those individuals you designate (fellow attorneys and paralegals, for example) have access to sensitive materials in Illinois.

Our Legal Videographers | IL

As for the other seasoned professionals who are a part of our team, those include experienced legal videographers. Some attorneys can’t resist the temptation to cut corners when it comes to videotaping a deposition or other hearing. In reality, you want professional legal videographers who have been trained to film in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting and camera position, and who utilize the kind of specialized equipment that can capture the quality of audio and imagery you’re looking for. Perhaps there are some occasions when you might be able to get away with cutting corners; but when things don’t go exactly as planned, that’s when you’ll appreciate having a seasoned professional working with you—the kind of individual who has the resources to maintain a certain amount of redundancy, for example.

After all, you never want to finish a deposition and find that the video you recorded is unusable. As you know, video can be a powerful tool in a legal proceeding, particularly when matters reach the trial stage and issues are argued in front of a judge or jury. That’s why if you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, you want to make sure that it employs expert videographers utilizing state-of-the-art technology that can capture the most subtle details, including body language, facial expressions, and the kind of gestures that might be indicative of witness coaching. A single gesture or facial expression can help buttress a settlement negotiation or courtroom argument.

Also, if you require editing services, our editors are every bit the equal of our videographers in terms of quality and experience. We offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion to other formats, including MPEG, DVD, CD, and even VHS in IL.

Video Conferencing Solutions | 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 in Illinois

 

In terms of our people-based solutions, two of the most requested services we provide are: finding interpreters and legal videographers.

Regarding the importance of qualified interpreters, many parties to lawsuits and related legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language. This can be a challenge for attorneys who want to make sure their clients’ voices are heard—and that they fully understand the questions being asked of them during proceedings. But as you probably know, it’s not always easy to find a qualified interpreter at a moment’s notice, especially if your client’s first language is a less commonly spoken dialect. In some cases, you might even need interpreters and court reporters that are able to work in multiple languages.

As part of our effort to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs, we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. That’s why we have developed a stable of certified court reporters and interpreters for 140 different languages, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. We can arrange for interpreting services for Mandarin, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Dutch, Swedish, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic, among many others. While we might have to draw the line at providing an interpreter for an invented language like Esperanto, short of needing an Esperanto-to-English interpreter, we can help. So whether you need an interpreter for a local case or an international deposition, give us a call today!
