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.

If you choose us and utilize our secure online case management system we will provide you with online and mobile access to everything regarding your case, including an online calendar, transcripts, exhibits, and billing information and invoices. The online system allows you to view and download anything you need 24/7, with access to highly sensitive materials restricted to the attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate to have access.

We also provide a document repository where you can find all documents related to your account. Essential documents are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our case management system. You can use the online system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text.

Professional Legal Videographers | Somerset, IL

At the same time, more and more of our clients are enlisting our legal videographers to document legal proceedings. Naturally, video is a powerful medium, particularly when a legal matter reaches the courtroom and arguments are made in front of a judge or jury. Our videographers employ state-of-the-art technology that can capture the most subtle visual details – including positive or negative body language, and telling gestures or facial expressions. As you probably know, a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference in the world within the confines of a courtroom. That’s why our videographers always utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, so that our clients get the footage they need. We typically film using multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with polished audio and video. Our well-respected editors provide no-less-valuable services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a smartphone camera can film your deposition. Better to be safe than sorry and use professionals who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting—professionals who understand the importance of lighting and camera position, and who have access to the kind of specialized equipment that makes the difference between amateur and professional in Somerset, IL.

Interpreters and Interpreting Services for Depositions and Other Hearings in Somerset, Illinois

 

More and more, our clients are taking advantage of our interpreting services when hiring a court reporter. That’s because many parties to lawsuits come from diverse places and backgrounds and don’t always speak English as a first language—or even a second or third language. For attorneys and paralegals this can pose a problem; it’s not always easy to find an interpreter who is capable of providing interpretation services within the required time frame, particularly if it’s a less common language or dialect. In other cases you might need a court reporter prepared to provide interpretation services in several different languages.

But we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing any and all language barriers. We’re capable of supplying certified court reporters and interpreters for virtually any language or dialect, not to mention sign language for the hearing impaired. More specifically, we can arrange for interpreting services for approximately 140 different languages and dialects, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and Arabic. Have a need for interpreting services involving a much less common language? Give us a call today—we can help.
