Online Document Repository for Depositions Transcripts, Exhibits Illinois

Of course, an attorney’s work doesn’t end when a deposition or other legal hearing is completed.  In fact, the attorney who can stay organized and quickly access all necessary information is the one most likely to prevail in the case or secure a favorable outcome for his or her client. That’s why a court reporting agency that can supply you with instant access to the documents you need is invaluable—a court reporting service like ours. We will provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case; this may include a personal online calendar, case transcripts, exhibits and schedules, as well as account information and invoices.

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.

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.
