Remote Deposition Services in Columbus, Ohio

For people who aren’t non-essential workers, the new normal is to work from home. Entire legal firms are forced to operate from their respective dining room tables in order to keep everyone safe and healthy. In a way, this might seem ideal– one would be able to get their work done in a far more efficient manner without constant distractions, right?

Perhaps this is partially true, but a massive part of an attorneys work must be done around others. Meetings with partners, co-counsels, witnesses, and clients are what truly propel the course of law forward. Exchanging emails don’t work. Phone calls between two people aren’t bad, but when that number goes to three, four, five, or even more, it can be difficult to discern who said what. Attorneys need a better solution.

Court Reporting and the World of Law

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.
