Court Reporter in Effingham County | 312-736-7780 | Illinois Stenographers

If you’re an attorney, paralegal, or are otherwise employed by a law firm, you no doubt want to hire the best court reporters you can find to handle your deposition, meeting, court appearance, or other legal proceeding. After all, court reporters play a critical role in the legal process by keeping a record of what has transpired. Sometimes a stenographer is employed; a stenographer creates a written transcript of the proceeding as it is occurring. Other times, the deposition or other proceeding is digitally recorded and a transcript is produced later.

Regardless of your specific needs, our full-service court reporting agency can deliver a solution, providing you with the best court reporters, stenographers, and legal videographers available. For over 20 years, we have excelled at meeting and exceeding the expectations of our clients, providing them with accurate, easily accessible transcripts of depositions, court appearances, and other types of legal hearings. If you’d like to utilize the best court reporters in the country we can help, whether your deposition is in New York, Boston, Washington D.C., Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, or just about anywhere in the United States.

What does it mean that we are a full-service court reporting agency? Glad you asked. Following are just a few of the court reporting services that we offer to our valued clients:

Need assistance with your deposition or hearing? We are ready to help—anytime. Our team of certified and licensed court reporters, stenographers, interpreters, and legal videographers perform their jobs well, yet remain as unobtrusive as possible. If you believe that court reporters and stenographers are a dying breed, most observers in the legal profession think nothing could be further from the truth. That’s because attempts to replace certified court reporters with digital audio and video recording technology have largely failed. That’s because unsupervised recordings frequently fail, leading to missing or garbled testimony. Also, transcribing human speech—which can be charged with emotion or involve multiple voices speaking simultaneously—still requires a human touch.

At the same time, advancements in audio, video, and video conferencing technology have helped to make the work product of court reporters, stenographers, and legal videographers even more important and impactful. Meanwhile, the latest video conferencing solutions sometimes obviate the need to conduct in-person hearings and depositions, saving all interested parties time and money. And at our full-service court reporting agency, we like to think we provide the best court reporters available, not to mention the best legal videographers, stenographers, interpreters, and support staff in the business.

Legal Videographers | IL

That’s why it’s important not to cut corners by using “just anyone” with a camera to film and record your deposition or hearing. A professional legal videographer who has been trained to film in a legal setting—and who understands the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position—can provide you the footage you need to win your case. An experienced legal videographer will also utilize specialized equipment designed to capture the highest-quality audio and video. Using anything—or anyone—else, is penny-wise and pound foolish.

That’s why we make sure our videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, to ensure that our demanding clients get the footage they need. We shoot live, using high-gain microphones and high-definition cameras to provide you with the quality video recording you should come to expect.

Don’t overlook the importance of a top quality editor, either. As a leading court reporting agency we have the size and resources to retain experienced video editors to provide post-production services, including services like linear editing, nonlinear editing, and media enhancement. Our offerings also include time-saving services like audio & video duplication. Moreover, we have the ability to provide and convert audio and video to a variety of formats, including CD and DVD in IL.

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.
