All essential documents related to your case are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our online case management system.

Professional Legal Videographers | 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 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.
Interpreters in Illinois
We can also help if you need an interpreter (or interpreters) to successfully facilitate the proceedings. Oftentimes, parties to lawsuits and other legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and may not speak English as a first language. 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.
Certified Court Reporters Available for Most Languages
With removing language barriers being a big part of providing a comprehensive court reporting service, we work hard to maintain a stable of certified court reporters and interpreters that covers most any language or dialect. We can arrange for interpreting services for over 140 different languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and Arabic, not to mention sign language for the hearing impaired. In addition to real-time translation of attorneys’ questions and subsequent answers, we can provide for the translation of documents during discovery.
So whether you need an interpreter for a local case or an international deposition, we can ensure that your language and translation needs and requirements are met.
