Attending a deposition is the best way to make sure that you have a clear picture of the case before it goes to trial. However, when you’re working on a large case with a cross-coastal team or even a smaller case that is being handled by multiple offices, it can be hard to get everyone in the same room. Luckily, with the help of full-service litigation support providers like First Legal, you can make your deposition as efficient and effective as possible by holding them virtually. With the help of a simple webcam-equipped computer or mobile device, you’ll be able to see and hear the other participants live without actually being in the room.
Virtual depositions cut down not only on travel time and expenses but also on overhead costs and infrastructure costs. Most importantly, virtual depositions can even make life easier for your court reporter. A good, qualified court reporter will maintain precision, accuracy, and professionalism no matter what; however, in the case of virtual depositions, audio and video recordings are available to revisit and review throughout the proceedings. There’s no substitute for an exceptional realtime deposition court reporter, but when you use the court reporter’s transcript in conjunction with recordings, you’ll be able to bring your recorded transcript to life! This dual method of deposition ensures complete accuracy because you’ll have an immediate transcript that can be changed, improved, and expanded upon based on a later review of the digital record.
You’ll experience the best accuracy available in the final transcript when you optimize your time and budget with virtual depositions. Webcams and streaming services are cost-conscious ways of bringing together a team that may span thousands of miles. When you take advantage of virtual deposition services through First Legal, you’ll bring your deposition together into a succinct but flexible format that can be used worldwide! Our advanced software and skilled legal videographers will create a finished product that is synchronized with the transcript so searching hours of testimony is easy! At First Legal, we understand both the technology of virtual depositions and the legal aspects of the proceedings. For more information on going virtual, contact our Deposition department today!
