Need assistance with your deposition or hearing? We are ready to help—anytime. Our team of certified and licensed court reporters, stenographers, interpreters, and legal videographers perform their jobs well, yet remain as unobtrusive as possible. If you believe that court reporters and stenographers are a dying breed, most observers in the legal profession think nothing could be further from the truth. That’s because attempts to replace certified court reporters with digital audio and video recording technology have largely failed. That’s because unsupervised recordings frequently fail, leading to missing or garbled testimony. Also, transcribing human speech—which can be charged with emotion or involve multiple voices speaking simultaneously—still requires a human touch.
At the same time, advancements in audio, video, and video conferencing technology have helped to make the work product of court reporters, stenographers, and legal videographers even more important and impactful. Meanwhile, the latest video conferencing solutions sometimes obviate the need to conduct in-person hearings and depositions, saving all interested parties time and money. And at our full-service court reporting agency, we like to think we provide the best court reporters available, not to mention the best legal videographers, stenographers, interpreters, and support staff in the business.
Online Access to Calendar, Transcripts, and Exhibits for Your Deposition Illinois
That’s one reason we have devoted extensive resources to developing and providing a secure online case management system, one that provides you with online and mobile access to everything regarding your case, including access to case transcripts, exhibits, an online calendar, and billing account information and invoices. The online system allows you—and those attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate—to view and download any documents you need twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
This includes access to our online document repository, where all documents are indexed. You can use our online system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text with the click of a mouse. If you need physical copies of case documents or transcripts, we provide traditional imaging and copying services as well in Illinois.
Arrange for a Professional Legal Videographer to Film Your Deposition | IL
Yet another great tool for preserving everything that transpires during a deposition is video. If you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, make sure you also retain an expert videographer. For one, professional legal videographers utilize the latest equipment—technology that can capture the most important visual details, whether that’s positive or negative body language, facial expressions, and even the slightest gestures. Experienced attorneys recognize that a single nuance or gesture captured on video can be a difference maker when it comes to a settlement negotiation or an argument in a courtroom or judge’s chambers.
That’s also why experienced attorneys don’t leave video production in the hands of an amateur with a smartphone. It’s preferable to employ an experienced legal videographer, one who has been trained to shoot videos in a deposition setting, one who recognizes the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position, and one who has access to high-definition cameras and other sophisticated equipment that can provide the best-possible imagery and audio.
Don’t overlook the value of an experienced editor, either. As a top court reporting agency, we offer all necessary post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, and media enhancement. Audio and video duplication, as well as audio and video conversion to other popular formats, is available as well. Let us videotape and edit your deposition, and provide any post-production or duplications services you may need in IL.
Video Conferencing for Your Deposition or Hearing | IL
As for those occasions when it’s just not possible to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition, we are committed to helping you take a deposition remotely while still providing you the same face-to-face impact it would have in person. We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the United States—or the world. So don’t feel limited by geography and travel constraints. Coordinating travel for various parties to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming. With video conferencing, you can cut down on travel costs and all other related expenses, while also avoiding the hassles associated with getting all parties together for a deposition or mediation hearing.
One simple phone call to us is all you need. We will take care of the video conference setup, which includes finding locations, working out the logistics, supplying the video and recording equipment, testing the equipment, ensuring working Internet access, and linking two or more locations for your deposition. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment with HD video and sharp audio. If you need a conference room for your video conference deposition, we can provide that as well. Our conference room locations come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet connections, large monitors, high-quality audio systems, and hands-free multi-line phone systems.
When you enlist our video conferencing services for a deposition or other legal proceeding, we will provide you with a detailed outline of what you can expect from us. We also provide technical support throughout the proceeding so that you can concentrate on the deposition or hearing itself. Save time and money by using video conferencing for your next deposition, and free yourself from the burden of worrying about disconnects or other technical issues.
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.
