How Attorneys Team Up with Court Reporters

We all know that court reporters help make an attorney’s legal team shine, but what exactly does that mean?

Court reporters help attorneys run their cases as smoothly as possible. By recording the legal proceedings of a deposition or trial as they occur in an easy to read format, attorneys can then use that transcript to shape the following steps of their case. Deposition transcripts allow attorneys to form a solid testimony for their witnesses, but they also allow attorneys to find holes in the opposing counsel’s case. As a result, attorneys can come to trial with an impenetrable defense.

This is especially crucial in areas of law where one’s livelihood is at stake. Take elder law, for example. Elder law can encompass anything from estate planning, to veteran’s benefits, to special needs care. When a parent, spouse, or a loved one needs specialized care or a place to stay, it can be nearly impossible for family to scratch up the funds they need to provide this loved one with proper care. When this happens, families need to turn to elder law attorneys.

“Elder law attorneys give their clients a peace of mind that was likely never thought achievable,” Gagandeep Baidwan, an expert from Wichita Falls, Texas says. “When finances, assets, and quality of life are all in the balance, a good elder law attorney can make a world of difference for not only one’s life, but their peace of mind.”

In Palm Beach County, Florida, where nearly 30 percent of the population are seniors, it is essential there be an elder law attorney who is dedicated to their work. Mark Shalloway is that attorney.  For 30 years, Mark Shalloway and his team of devoted attorneys at Shalloway & Shalloway have served the needs of seniors and their families in the Palm Beach area. Whether one requires assistance with living trusts, obtaining Medicaid, medical malpractice, or any other area of practice encompassing elder law, Shalloway and his people will do everything in their power to make sure the client is satisfied. The firm discusses the family’s needs and helps guide them to a plan that works.

But even for experienced attorneys such as Mark Shalloway, it is nearly impossible to remember each and every detail of a client’s case. This is where a court reporter would come in. By sitting in on a meeting, deposition, or trial, court reporters can quickly, accurately, and efficiently recount everything that was said. Court reporters then format the transcript to an easy-to-read document. With this tool, attorneys are able to find exactly what they need. Details won’t be forgotten or left out of the case work. An attorney can use the transcript to form as tight a case as possible.

In the world of elder law—and really, in any area of practice—, having every single necessary detail available is pivotal to not only the success of a case, but to the livelihood of the attorney’s client. Court reporters allow attorneys to act diligently and effectively, both of which propel their work forward. With the help of court reporters, attorneys can get attorneys the resources they so desperately need to live life fully.

How the Lone Star State Has Become a Court Reporting Center

The phrase “everything is bigger in Texas” is something people across the United States are plenty familiar with. In many aspects, there is a certain truth to it. Texas is home to bustling cities with huge populations, larger-than-life barbeque, a substantial fishing scene, and, of course, the iconic ten-gallon hats. In the literal sense of the phrase, Texas is the largest state in the continental United States. Those who call Texas their home have a deep-seated pride that they feel is louder and prouder than any other state.

They have made their name as a preferred court reporting firm in Houston, but with access to the web, the firm has expanded their reach across Texas. Court reporting firms in places like Austin and Fort Worth have similar stories, but those in smaller cities like Pearland, Plano, and Victoria now have more pull than they once did.
