Choosing The Right Court Reporter
Choosing the right court reporter may often prove difficult when you have traveled to an unfamiliar city and there are so many court reporting firms to choose from. One mistake can cause many trickle-down negative effects onto your case, in court, and during a deposition. When the outcome of your case depends on accurate information to be well-organized by a professional Phoenix court reporter, follow these tips.
Ask if their facilities will meet your needs
Before scheduling your next deposition, first ask if their facilities will meet the needs of your clients and the number of deponents and staff you may have in attendance; if your clients have special needs, such as needing wheelchair access to the building; can these needs be met through the conference suite provided by your court reporter; will it be a quiet and professional atmosphere for you to conduct business.
Be sure to ask about high-speed internet access or proper video conferencing equipment.
Can your court reporter set up an interpreter or video recording of the deposition if needed?
When a witness is not able to be present, video-recorded testimony can be a very powerful tool to a judge or jury in court. Perhaps an expert witness will not be present for your day in court. Ask your potential court reporting firm if they will be able to provide Hi-Def, high-resolution video recording of their deposition. Perhaps an interpreter is needed. Can your court reporter provide this as well?
