FAQ

How is Remote Legal Court Reporting different than any other court reporting company?

Remote Legal Court Reporting has created a virtual proceeding platform, which is not just a Zoom Room with a court reporter and a separate file sharing program. When we looked into what we could do to improve the remote deposition experience, the common themes the attorneys we work with pointed to were:
• Zoom is made for cocktail parties. Generic video conferencing solutions do not offer an attorney first experience
• Exhibit handling. How are we supposed to handle exhibits? How do we mark them? Where do I find them after the deposition? How do I keep track of many different depositions within a case?
• Private Conversations with clients. How do I speak to my client in private?
Remote Legal separates itself from other court reporting firms, with our proprietary remote deposition platform and experienced testimony capture professionals.

How does Remote Legal Court Reporting work?

It’s simple, connect to the internet on a computer, tablet or phone, so long as you have a webcam and microphone and log in.

Do I need to download any software?

Nope, Remote Legal Court Reporting is a web-based platform so no software download is required.

What’s different about the video?

Witness video is date and timestamped, and available immediately after the proceeding.

What’s different about the exhibit handling?

An attorney, paralegal or legal assistant can Pre-load exhibits or upload on the fly. Share only the exhibits you deem necessary and they are automatically date and timestamped once introduced. Mark and annotate the exhibit for witnesses and attorneys to see in real time.

How do we swear in the witness?

In addition to the platform, Remote Legal also provides the court reporter who will not only capture the record but provide the local notary services required in order to swear in the witness.

Is the court reporter part of the solution?

YES, Remote Legal Court Reporting is a single source solution for remote depositions. Remote Legal Court Reporting offers both stenographic and electronic means of capturing the record.

What is an electronic court reporter?

An electronic court reporter is the EXACT same role as a traditional stenographer except they use digital technology to capture the audio of the proceeding to be transcribed later. They are notaries who swear witnesses in, handle exhibits, and provide playbacks when necessary. Redundant methods of audio recording are employed ensuring a verbatim testimony capture.

What is a transcript-less deposition?

One of the growing regional and professional trends is for the attorney to conduct a deposition but not require the transcript for any number of reasons. Remote Legal Court Reporting’s transcript-less services allow for attorneys to conduct a deposition just like any other and determine when and if they need the transcript. If a transcript is required in our standard 5-7 day turnaround, no problem. If a transcript is requested 6 months after the deposition, don’t worry, we preserve the testimony and exhibits and only need 5-7 days from the time of request to turn them back to you. Only pay for what you need, when you need it!

How much does it cost?

Simple, flat hourly rate, that’s it!
