Court Reporting and the World of Law

Credit: Quote Logy

Attorneys are not the sole professional who win clients’ cases. They are responsible for presenting the facts and swaying the jury, which is certainly a difficult task, but there are a lot of moving parts that help attorneys present the best version of their case possible. Legal teams are made up of a number of professionals who preform different jobs in order to help the case thrive.

Among those professionals are court reporters. Many hear the title and can’t possibly conceive what a court reporter might do during a trial. Others simply think that court reporters sit in the back of the room with a tiny laptop and type up what was said. While that description is the most basic description of a court reporter’s responsibilities possible, it is a description nonetheless. Court reporters are tasked with recording what was said, exactly how it was said, as it is said. This means that court reporters must be able to type upwards of 200 words a minute– about five times more than the average person can type a minute.

Part of this ability comes from talent, and part of it comes from mastering the stenograph– the machine court reporters use in the court room or deposition. Unlike a normal keyboard, stenographs are arranged phonetically, which allows reporters to record sounds instead of “real English” and produce words more quickly. Court reporters then have to go back and translate what was said in a pristine transcript for attorneys, so that it can be referenced at a later date. These transcripts need a quick turn-around, because attorneys can’t afford to sit around waiting.

Court reporters need to be as timely, efficient, and accurate as possible so that the discourse of law can move smoothly. When a court reporter can’t deliver on these needs, everyone suffers– paralegals, attorneys, and their clients. Attorneys must choose who is a part of their legal team wisely, so they aren’t left wanting more.

What Makes a Court Reporting Star

Credit: Phoenix New Times

Court reporting is an essential aspect of any attorney’s case. Memory is an unreliable thing to base a case around—especially when a case extends over the course of several months. This is where court reporters come in to play. These litigation professionals eliminate the guesswork by recording highly accurate transcripts exactly as they are said while they are being said in a deposition or trial.

In Phoenix, Arizona, there are few court reporting firms who have withstood the test of time. The legal field is crucial, certainly, but too many firms don’t stay up to date with the latest in technology and services, so they slip between the cracks. Coash & Coash is not one of these firms.

For nearly 40 years, Coash & Coash has been a staple in the Phoenix legal world. Whether their clients need top-of-the-line court reporters or the most current legal videography services, these Phoenix court reporters have their back. The standard of reporting is high. The firm was founded by Gerard T. Coash (a certified LiveNote Reporter and Merit Reporter) and Meri Coash (a certified Realtime and Registered Merit Reporter).

The firm has continued to push forward excellence as the years have gone on. To this day, Jerry Coash works to hone and perfect his skills. Recently, the court reporting titan has ensured his skills were as tightly-knit as possible by making sure he practiced his skills for at least 30 minutes for 1,000 consecutive days. That, alone, proves the level of dedication past and present clients have come to expect from the staff at Coash & Coash.

“Mr. Coash’s dedication to his craft sets a tone for the level of passion the rest of his staff members put forward,” Brandon Bell, an expert from Oak Park, Illinois, says. “When a guy is so dedicated to his work, it makes a huge impact on the entire business.”
