Court Reporter in Alexander County, 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.

Online Document Repository Provides Easy Access to Transcripts, More Illinois
Technology has had a remarkable effect on the legal industry by making organization and efficiency a mission-critical aspect of running a successful law firm. Attorneys who can stay organized and quickly access all necessary information have a distinct advantage as compared to their less organized opponents. That’s why you want a resourceful court reporting service that can supply you with instant access to the documents you need for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other legal proceedings. This means being able to view your materials with just one keystroke or click of a mouse on a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet connections, large monitors, and all the amenities you have come to expect in a first-class conference room setup.
We also provide technical support before, during, and after the deposition or hearing so that you can concentrate on legal work. You won’t have to worry about disconnects or other technical issues. And when you enlist our video conferencing services, we will provide you with a detailed outline identifying all the arrangements that have been made on your behalf.
