Court Reporter in Madison County | 312-736-7780 | Illinois Stenographers

If you’re an attorney, paralegal, or are otherwise employed by a law firm, you no doubt want to hire the best court reporters you can find to handle your deposition, meeting, court appearance, or other legal proceeding. After all, court reporters play a critical role in the legal process by keeping a record of what has transpired. Sometimes a stenographer is employed; a stenographer creates a written transcript of the proceeding as it is occurring. Other times, the deposition or other proceeding is digitally recorded and a transcript is produced later.

Regardless of your specific needs, our full-service court reporting agency can deliver a solution, providing you with the best court reporters, stenographers, and legal videographers available. For over 20 years, we have excelled at meeting and exceeding the expectations of our clients, providing them with accurate, easily accessible transcripts of depositions, court appearances, and other types of legal hearings. If you’d like to utilize the best court reporters in the country we can help, whether your deposition is in New York, Boston, Washington D.C., Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, or just about anywhere in the United States.

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.

Meanwhile, we also provide an online document repository so that you can find the documents you need—when you need them. All documents pertaining to your case are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our online system, which can be used to search for and download documents. You can even export deposition text with just the click of a mouse. And if you need physical copies of documents or transcripts, we provide traditional imaging and copying services as well.

And if you ever have questions when using our online document repository and case management system, dedicated members of our team are available by phone day and night. Our technicians will work with you to guide you through our online system and answer any questions you may have in Illinois.

Arrange for a Professional Legal Videographer to Film Your Deposition | IL

Fortunately, though, legal videographers tend to speak much the same language—communicating their message through the power of an audio-video recording. As we’re sure you recognize, video can be an especially powerful medium when it comes to legal matters. If you need a court reporting service to record a deposition or hearing, you want to make sure that they employ expert videographers using the kind of cutting-edge technology that is capable of capturing the most subtle visual details, like positive or negative body language, facial expressions that don’t match the tone of voice, and gestures that may be indicative of witness coaching. A single nuance captured on video can make all the difference in the world when it comes to a settlement negotiation or courtroom argument.

So don’t fall into the trap of thinking that anyone with a camera and tripod can film your deposition and get the results you need. Insist on utilizing professionals who have been trained to film in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position, and who utilize top-of-the-line lighting and equipment in IL.

Video Conferencing Solutions for Your Deposition | IL

And for those instances when it’s not possible to have everyone physically present in the same room for a deposition we offer cutting-edge video conferencing solutions. Our longtime clients will tell you that we are committed to helping clients take depositions remotely while getting the same results they would if taking the deposition in person. In fact, we offer video conferencing solutions that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the United States or around the world.

So don’t remain limited by the constraints of time and geography. Coordinating travel for the various parties to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming. With video conferencing, you can cut down on travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, and also avoid the hassle associated with getting all of the parties together in one room.

However, if you need a conference room for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other litigation proceeding, we can provide a room for your single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference. We have access to hundreds of locations so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs will be a straightforward process.

In fact, one phone call is all it takes. We will handle the video conference setup, which includes: providing options for locations, working out the logistics, supplying the A/V equipment, testing the equipment, ensuring working Internet access, and linking two or more locations. We always utilize state-of-the-art equipment with HD video and high-quality audio. Compatibility with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones is ensured as well. 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.
