Online Case Management Illinois

Another area in which we can give you a leg up on the competition is through organization. The reality is that attorneys who can readily access mission-critical information have an advantage over opponents and peers alike. If you find yourself desiring easy access to case transcripts and documents at a moment’s notice we can help supply you with instant access to the documents needed. This includes the ability to view case information with just one keystroke or tap, either at your desktop or while using any mobile device connected to the Internet.

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.

Interpreters and Interpreting Services for Depositions and Other Hearings in Illinois

 

More and more, our clients are taking advantage of our interpreting services when hiring a court reporter. That’s because many parties to lawsuits come from diverse places and backgrounds and don’t always speak English as a first language—or even a second or third language. For attorneys and paralegals this can pose a problem; it’s not always easy to find an interpreter who is capable of providing interpretation services within the required time frame, particularly if it’s a less common language or dialect. In other cases you might need a court reporter prepared to provide interpretation services in several different languages.

But we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing any and all language barriers. We’re capable of supplying certified court reporters and interpreters for virtually any language or dialect, not to mention sign language for the hearing impaired. More specifically, we can arrange for interpreting services for approximately 140 different languages and dialects, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and Arabic. Have a need for interpreting services involving a much less common language? Give us a call today—we can help.
