In fact, one offering that our clients always appreciate is our online document repository, which enables you to find and access what you need for your case, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. All documents are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our online case management system. You can use the system to search for documents, download exhibits, and export deposition text with the click of a mouse.

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.

That’s why we have made a commitment to providing our clients around the country with top quality video conferencing solutions, which allow you to take depositions remotely while still getting the same results you would in person.

In other words, thanks to technology you no longer need to be limited by geography—or need to travel to a remote location. Attorneys and other law firms employees know that getting on an airplane to travel to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming.

We utilize state-of-the-art equipment with high-definition video and our equipment is compatible with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Our conference rooms come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet connections, as well as large monitors and all the amenities you’ve come to expect.

Get a Qualified Interpreter for your Deposition, Mediation or Arbitration Hearing in Illinois

 

As a top court reporting agency, we work hard to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs. That’s why we have focused on building up a stable of interpreters covering virtually any language or dialect you might encounter.

As you know, making sure your client understands the dialogue and questions asked during a deposition or other legal hearing is imperative. For clients who speak English as a second—or a third or fourth—language, understanding questions may only be possible with the help of an interpreter. A client who goes without the assistance of a qualified, experienced interpreter may significantly harm their legal interests, not to mention the pursuit of truth-seeking.

So take comfort in knowing that we can supply interpreters covering more than 140 languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic. Among other things, our interpreters can provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, and also translate documents during the discovery process. Call us today if you need one or more interpreters to facilitate your deposition, mediation, or arbitration hearing.
