Court reporters are a crucial part of any trial or deposition. Especially when considering the advancements in technology that have made real-time court reporting more feasible and reliable, there are so many benefits to having court reporting services in Phoenix, AZ on hand for your case.
Here are just a few examples of some of the biggest benefits that come with retaining court reporting services for your case:
- Instant transcripts: A court reporter using real-time court reporting technology is able to produce transcripts of depositions, testimony or trials immediately. In some cases, depending on the type of technology used, these transcripts can show up on laptop screens for immediate use by attorneys, judges, legal assistants, aides and anyone else involved in the case. If there is any question about what was said, everyone involved will have an immediate and accurate feed of what was said in the courtroom. Changes to the transcript also occur in real time, so you always have an up-to-date, accurate document.
- Accurate testimony: At the very least, you will be able to ask the court reporter to read back testimony to check on what was said and make it easier to ask follow up questions or object to certain things that were said. When using real-time reporting technology, the court reporter doesn’t even have to stop to read it back—everyone involved in the court process will have the transcript appear on their screens in real time.
- Save time and money: Court reporting services are crucial for creating an accurate record of everything said in a trial or deposition. Having this accurate information on hand can save you quite a bit of time and money, as you know they’re going to be professionals in their work and you’re not going to have to ask an aide to take notes that you can only hope will be accurate. In addition, when using real-time reporting technology, you don’t have to rely on making transcripts from audio recordings—you’ll have immediate access to a certified transcript rather than having to wait for that recording to be transcribed. The accurate transcript also makes it easier for you to prepare your case with accurate information and quotes.
- Improved strategy and cooperation: Accurate court reporting keeps everyone on the same page, giving everyone access to quick, accurate information and making it easier for them to quickly notate or highlight certain passages of testimony and flag other areas for further examination, investigation or fact checking. All of this makes strategy and cooperation as a legal team significantly easier.
