Can Technology Replace Court Reporters? This is a question that gets asked periodically, but most legal professionals believe the answer is no. Technology has actually improved and enhanced the service that court reporters provide, but it can’t replace the skills and experience provided by human beings.

For one, in spite of tremendous enhancements in digital recording technology, such recordings have the potential to malfunction, which can lead to fragmented, garbled, and even missing testimony in the absence of prompt human intervention. Second, recording and transcribing conversations requires human judgement and active intervention, particularly when two people attempt to speak at the same time. Third, at the present time, voice recognition software is not reliable enough to provide the kind of quality necessary in a legal forum. It’s flaws become especially evident when a speaker has a strong accent, talks very fast, talks at a low volume (a “low talker,” in Seinfeld parlance), or becomes emotional. Voice recognition software also doesn’t do well in rooms where there is background noise, which is unavoidable when depositions and other legal hearings are conducted. You can also imagine a scenario in which voice recognition software captures an off-the-record conversation and includes it in the record, which would obviously be disadvantageous to the aggrieved party.

Online Document Repository Provides Easy Access to Transcripts, More New Jersey

Technology has had a remarkable effect on the legal industry by making organization and efficiency a mission-critical aspect of running a successful law firm. Attorneys who can stay organized and quickly access all necessary information have a distinct advantage as compared to their less organized opponents. That’s why you want a resourceful court reporting service that can supply you with instant access to the documents you need for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other legal proceedings. This means being able to view your materials with just one keystroke or click of a mouse on a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

If you choose us and utilize our secure online case management system we will provide you with online and mobile access to everything regarding your case, including an online calendar, transcripts, exhibits, and billing information and invoices. The online system allows you to view and download anything you need 24/7, with access to highly sensitive materials restricted to the attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate to have access.

We also provide a document repository where you can find all documents related to your account. Essential documents are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our case management system. You can use the online system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text. If you need physical copies of case documents or transcripts, we also provide traditional imaging and copying services, as well as physical depositories.

And when you use us for your deposition or other hearing, you will receive personal technical assistance from the members of our team. Our technicians will work with you to address your specific needs and to guide you through our online system. Support staffers are available day or night to answer any questions you may have in Mahwah, New Jersey.

Legal Videographers, and Editors | Mahwah, NJ

As you know, video is an especially powerful tool in the legal environment. Yet it’s not good enough to have your deposition filmed by someone utilizing nothing more than a smartphone and a tripod. You want a professional who has been trained to record in a legal setting, who understands the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position, and who has access to the kind of specialized equipment that can capture the video and audio quality you need.

That’s why we work with experienced legal videographers who utilize state-of-the-art equipment, the kind of A/V gear that allows you to capture the most important visual details, including positive or negative body language, facial expressions, and even the slightest gestures. We’ve found that a single nuance captured on video has the potential to make all the difference in the world when it comes to settlement negotiation or courtroom arguments.

By the same token, you should expect access to equally experienced editors to handle all of your post-production needs. From our experience, those needs can include linear editing, nonlinear editing, audio & video duplication, audio & video conversion (into other formats), as well as image enhancement in Mahwah, NJ.

Video Conferencing Technology | Mahwah, NJ

Another area where technology has taken a great leap forward is video conferencing technology, which now enables you to take depositions from anywhere in the U.S. and still get much the same results as you would in person. And 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 for a deposition.

If you need a conference room for your hearing we can arrange that as well. Depending on the number of physical locations needed we can provide a single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference. We have access to hundreds of locations across the country and throughout the world, so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs is just a phone call away.

We will take care of the video conference setup (which includes location scouting, working out the logistics, supplying the A/V equipment, testing the equipment, and linking two or more locations). We also provide technical support before, during, and after your hearing so that you can focus all of your time and energy on your work. In fact, when you enlist our video conferencing services for a deposition or other legal proceeding, we will provide a detailed outline of all arrangements made and what you can expect. So call us and save time, money, and stress by using video conferencing for your next deposition.

Interpreters in Mahwah, New Jersey

 

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.
