Court Reporter in Knox County | 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.

We provide our esteemed clients with:

  • Interpreters

As such, we are prepared to assist you with your deposition or other legal hearing. Our team of certified court reporters, stenographers, interpreters, and legal videographers can meet any and all of your needs. Better yet, our team members utilize state-of-the-art equipment so that you won’t miss ever miss a word, gesture, or facial expression from your deposition. We also handle depositions in all major U.S. cities, so we can provide you with a fully furnished conference room in that has all of the expected amenities and services, including Wi-Fi and multi-line phones.

Then, in the wake of your deposition, arbitration, or mediation hearing, you can count on us to help you manage transcripts and related documents and exhibits. Our highly trained support staff is also available for technology consulting so that you can focus on what matters most in your case: doing legal work and representing your client.

 

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
– Billing information
– Invoices

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.

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.

 

Video Conferencing Solutions for Depositions | IL

And for those situations when it’s not possible or practical to assemble all parties in the same room at the same time, we can provide a video conferencing solution of the highest quality that enables you to take a deposition or conduct a hearing from just about anywhere in the world. So don’t be constrained by geography. And don’t suffer the stress of scheduling a deposition in a remote location. With our video conferencing solutions, you can cut down on travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, and also avoid the hassle associated with getting all parties together in the same place at the same time.

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.
