Court Reporter in Scott County | 312-736-7780 | Illinois Stenographers
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.

Need a Legal Videographer to Film Your Deposition? | IL
As we’re sure you know, video can be a valuable tool in the legal arena, particularly when issues must be argued in front of a judge or jury. If you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, make sure that the individuals they employ are expert videographers using technology that can capture the most important visual details—like positive or negative body language or facial expressions that don’t match the tone of voice. A single nuance captured on video can make all the difference in the world when it comes to a settlement negotiation or a courtroom presentation.
Do not make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a camera and tripod can film your deposition. You need professionals who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting and sound, and who have access to specialized equipment that can capture sharp video images and crystal-clear audio.
Our legal videographers always utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment so our clients get the footage they need. We use high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with a polished videotape of your deposition, one that is synchronized with the reporter’s transcript.
Additionally, if you require editing by dedicated specialists after the shoot, we offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion for other formats like DVD in IL.
Legal Video Conferencing | IL
As for those inevitable occasions when it’s not possible to assemble all interested parties in the same room, modern technology now provides a ready solution—legal video conferencing. So don’t feel constrained by geography. By utilizing video conferencing you can eliminate travel & lodging costs and dramatically reduce other expenses, and also avoid the logistical issues of arranging travel for you and your clients.
As a leading court reporting agency, we are able to offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the world. So whether it’s a matter of conflicting schedules or parties not living in close proximity, we are committed to helping you take a deposition or conduct a hearing remotely, while still getting the same face-to-face impact you would have in person.
Interpreters in Illinois
In terms of our people-based solutions, two of the most requested services we provide are: finding interpreters and legal videographers.
Regarding the importance of qualified interpreters, many parties to lawsuits and related legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language. This can be a challenge for attorneys who want to make sure their clients’ voices are heard—and that they fully understand the questions being asked of them during proceedings. But as you probably know, it’s not always easy to find a qualified interpreter at a moment’s notice, especially if your client’s first language is a less commonly spoken dialect. In some cases, you might even need interpreters and court reporters that are able to work in multiple languages.
As part of our effort to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs, we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. That’s why we have developed a stable of certified court reporters and interpreters for 140 different languages, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. We can arrange for interpreting services for Mandarin, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Dutch, Swedish, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic, among many others. While we might have to draw the line at providing an interpreter for an invented language like Esperanto, short of needing an Esperanto-to-English interpreter, we can help. So whether you need an interpreter for a local case or an international deposition, give us a call today!
