Online Document Repository for Depositions Transcripts, Exhibits Illinois

Of course, an attorney’s work doesn’t end when a deposition or other legal hearing is completed.  In fact, the attorney who can stay organized and quickly access all necessary information is the one most likely to prevail in the case or secure a favorable outcome for his or her client. That’s why a court reporting agency that can supply you with instant access to the documents you need is invaluable—a court reporting service like ours. We will provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case; this may include a personal online calendar, case transcripts, exhibits and schedules, as well as account information and invoices. Our secure online case management system allows you (and those attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate) to view and download any materials you need—24/7.

Moreover, all documents are indexed for easy identification. You can use the online system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text with the click of a mouse. Need physical copies of case documents or transcripts? We also provide traditional imaging and copying services, as well as physical depositories in Illinois.

Legal Videography | IL

As we’re sure you’re aware, video remains a powerful tool in legal proceedings and it’s frequently a difference-maker for attorneys arguing a case in front of a judge or jury of a defendant’s peers. An experienced and highly-skilled legal videographer can vividly capture every detail of a proceeding—the kind of detail that can make or break a case or help facilitate a positive outcome in settlement negotiation. Moving beyond the influence of a transcript or audio recording, high-quality legal videography can capture positive or negative body language, as well as facial expressions that are incongruous with the speaker’s tone of voice. It can also help reveal slight nuances that may be indicative of witness coaching.

And while the advent of mobile phones and other handheld video devices have led some people to believe that just about anyone is capable of filming a hearing or deposition, you don’t want to leave capturing mission-critical audio and video in the hands of an amateur. Professionals experienced in legal videography not only have access to specialized equipment that captures the best-possible quality audio and video but also has the experience to adjust on the fly if and when the recording environment changes during the course of the proceedings.

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

Of course, in cases where raw audio and video isn’t sufficient, we provide a valuable array of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, and media enhancement, as well as audio & video conversion and duplication services for a variety of formats, including DVD, CD, and even VHS in IL.

Another way in which technology has made a positive difference in the world of court reporting is via video conferencing. More and more of our valued clients are taking advantage of video conferencing solutions, which can save time and money while still providing the same face-to-face impact of an in-person meeting. We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the world and save you the time of coordinating travel for all involved parties, which can be expensive and time-consuming. With our video conferencing solution, you can reduce travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, also avoid the hassle associated with assembling all parties for a deposition or hearing.

Interpreters in Illinois

 

We can also help if you need an interpreter (or interpreters) to successfully facilitate the proceedings.

Allow us to save you the stress and hassle of finding a qualified interpreter (or interpreters) that can provide the results you need. We’ve found this service to be especially helpful for those clients who need us to provide transcriptions in multiple languages.
