naegeli-logo

Naegeli Deposition and Trial has positioned itself as a leader among court reporters in Oregon, Washington, and nationwide.

The demands of attorneys are changing as the legal field evolves. New types of cases are presenting new challenges, and that has highlighted the need for robust support for law firms throughout their casework: changes in how information is collected, stored, and then delivered have presented new possibilities as well as new dilemmas.

Stepping in to meet the pressing needs of attorneys in the Pacific Northwest and across the country is Naegeli Deposition and Trial.

For over 35 years, the firm has been a fixture of the legal community in Portland, Seattle, and other large cities across Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, providing court reporting and litigation support to attorneys in the area as well as those from around the country and around the world who have work there.

“I showed up every day with an immense amount of passion and drive. The rest is history,” says Marsha Naegeli, founder and CEO of the firm. Her personal journey into the field began on a path to being an attorney, enrolled in a pre-law program. She says a friend tuned her on to this side of the legal field, and she never looked back. “Getting a chance to meet so many intelligent and accomplished people was both fun and inspiring.”

Technology-based services are at the center of the firm’s offerings. Connectivity has quickly become the foundation of many new tools that lawyers find essential in their work. Naegeli Deposition and Trial offers services that can be integrated into each phase of casework.

Naegeli Deposition and Trial Services for Every Need

“One of our main mottos at Naegeli is ‘Naegeli is here for you from file to trial.’ The services provided by NAEGELI are very much a domino effect,” explains Marsha Naegeli.

“You start with the court reporting and videography; also an interpreter if necessary. You then move to document management, which includes all imaging and scanning and preparation for trial. Lastly, you will be provided with top-notch support by certified trial presenters during the most important aspect of your case: the trial.”

The firm offers eight services, and each one is delivered by Naegeli’s experienced team of court reporters both in the area and around the country. Court reporting, videography, video conferencing, trial presentation, copying and scanning, transcription, and interpreting are all delivered in t a way that allow the attorneys to devote their time and talents to their casework.

Naegeli’s trial division also offers mock juries to help lawyers gain more insight into the relative strength of their arguments.

Mock juries allow lawyers to test their cases and refine their arguments.

In Oregon, Naegeli Deposition and Trial’s team of Eugene court reporters serve both the city and the surrounding communities. This gives lawyers a great deal of flexibility in in their casework, as they can schedule with Naegeli any time, day or night. The attention to detail and the sense of urgency that is part of the legal profession has been integrated into the way Naegeli works every day.

“At NAEGELI, we expect every employee and court reporter to treat each attorney and legal assistant as if they are our only client,” says Naegeli. “We have a one-hour response time requirement and intense training for each employee to absorb the Naegeli culture.”

National Court Reporters for Expansive Cases

One aspect of the legal profession that has grown out of our increasingly interconnected world is the need for court reporting firms that allow lawyers to expand their reach. Naegeli Deposition and Trial offers lawyers the freedom to have a nationwide footprint, with a team of court reporters positioned across the country to serve lawyers. While this is useful for lawyers working in criminal law, the need to bring expert witnesses into civil cases has highlighted the value of nationwide reporting.

“The main problem attorneys find when trying to choose a court reporter nationally is not knowing if and when they will get the transcript or getting a transcript that is of poor quality and unusable,” Naegeli observes. “We have addressed both of these issues with intense pre-qualification before any assignment is given to a court reporter or videographer nationally.”

They help attorneys craft solutions to the obstacles to casework through a commitment to staying ahead of new trends and developments as well as offering a team that can be a powerful ally in today’s competitive and challenging legal field.

Myths About Modern Court Reporting

seattle-court-reportersThere are some common myths about Naegeli Reporting Services that you may or may not have heard if you work or have worked in the legal industry. Here are just a couple of those myths and the truth behind them.

The first common myth that many people believe about court reporting is that reporters are really just glorified typists, that somehow if a person can type fast, they can be a court reporter. The reality is that professional reporters have to receive extensive education and training to do what they do. In addition, reporting is often done in intense, high stress situations. It is therefore very important for reporters to be able to work well under pressure and keep cool.

One of the other myths about court reporting is that these professionals only work in legal settings, such as for legal depositions and in court. Based on the name of the profession, this assumption is understandable. However, reporters can work for many different clients to transcribe business meetings, religious services, various conferences, and any meeting where someone will be speaking.

There are many more myths about Seattle court reporters that you should be aware of if you are ever conducting meetings, hosting conferences, or anything else for which you might want to hire someone to transcribe the proceedings. These are just two but if you feel you can benefit from a reporting firm, give one a call to see whether their services might be right for you.

Accuracy in the Courtroom from Seattle Court Reporters

There are many different industries where accuracy is extremely important. Mechanical engineering, for example, often requires that significant digits be rounded to the nearest thousandth decimal point, especially in aviation and aerospace industries. If their measurements are off by even the smallest fraction of an inch, the entire structure or machine could fail, and with the case of space-going vehicles, billions of dollars can be wasted. Seattle court reporters follow the same principle of precision in their work, but with different consequences.

Although it is unlikely that the results of most civil lawsuits will end up costing millions or even billions of dollars, the outcome is extremely important for those people involved in the case, and those who go after. Court proceedings are not just recorded for the benefit of the attending judge and legal teams, they are recorded for future court cases as well. In order to quickly try similar future cases, lawyers are able to search the records of past lawsuits.

This makes the justice system a little more efficient and allows past cases to be revisited with astounding accuracy as to everything that was discussed. Seattle court reporting firms train for several years to be completely proficient and be able to accurately record all statements made by the judge, lawyers, witnesses, and jury. Modern attorneys are able to look back several hundred years in term of court records and likely so will the lawyers of the future be able to do so.
