Online Case Management as a Legal Advantage Illinois

As you probably know, technology has had a profound impact on legal work and the speed in which it can be completed. That’s why lawyers who can stay organized and quickly access all relevant information are the ones who end up winning the argument or the case at hand.

This is yet another reason it’s advantageous to retain a leading court reporting agency that can provide the technology to supply you with instant access to the documents you need for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other legal proceeding. If you’re not yet able to do so, imagine being able to view your case information with just one keystroke on a computer—or on an iPad, iPhone, or any other mobile device connected to the Internet.

Online Access to Your Calendar, Transcripts, and Exhibits

Among our many capabilities, we can provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case, including:

– A personal online calendar
– Case transcripts
– Exhibits

Our secure online system allows you to view and download any materials you need—24/7. Only you and those individuals you designate (other attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries) have access to the highly sensitive materials related to your case in Illinois.

Need a Legal Videographer to Film Your Deposition? | IL

As we’re sure you know, video can be a valuable tool in the legal arena, particularly when issues must be argued in front of a judge or jury. If you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, make sure that the individuals they employ are expert videographers using technology that can capture the most important visual details—like  positive or negative body language or facial expressions that don’t match the tone of voice. A single nuance captured on video can make all the difference in the world when it comes to a settlement negotiation or a courtroom presentation.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a camera and tripod can film your deposition. You need professionals who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting and sound, and who have access to specialized equipment that can capture sharp video images and crystal-clear audio.

Our legal videographers always utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment so our clients get the footage they need. We use high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with a polished videotape of your deposition, one that is synchronized with the reporter’s transcript.

Additionally, if you require editing by dedicated specialists after the shoot, we offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion for other formats like DVD in IL.

Legal Video Conferencing | IL

As for those inevitable occasions when it’s not possible to assemble all interested parties in the same room, modern technology now provides a ready solution—legal video conferencing. So don’t feel constrained by geography. By utilizing video conferencing you can eliminate travel & lodging costs and dramatically reduce other expenses, and also avoid the logistical issues of arranging travel for you and your clients.

As a leading court reporting agency, we are able to offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the world. So whether it’s a matter of conflicting schedules or parties not living in close proximity, we are committed to helping you take a deposition or conduct a hearing remotely, while still getting the same face-to-face impact you would have in person.

Get a Qualified Interpreter for Your Next Deposition in Illinois

 

If you need an interpreter to help facilitate your legal proceeding, we can help with that as well. As you know, many parties to lawsuits and other legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and may not speak English as their first language. Moreover, it’s not always easy for an attorney to find a qualified, reliable interpreter who is capable of translating a particular language at a moment’s notice.

We’ve always worked hard to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs, whatever they may be. And we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. That’s why we supply certified court reporters and interpreters for a long list of languages and dialects. We can arrange for interpreting services for over 140 different languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Hindi, Dutch, Polish, Mandarin, and Arabic. We are prepared to provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, in addition to the translation of written documents.

So don’t fail to let your clients’ voices be heard. Whether you need an interpreter for a local case, an international deposition, or an arbitration hearing, we can ensure that all your needs and requirements are met.
