5 Reasons to conduct your deposition remotely

Legal depositions are an important way to obtain legal testimony when a witness isn’t available for court or lives too far away to be able to attend when they are needed. Conducting a video deposition from a remote location offers the opportunity to gather the testimony you need while saving time and money.

Here are some reasons why you should consider to conduct your legal depositions remotely:

  1. Witness is Crucial to the Case
    If you have no other choice than to depose a witness remotely, you may want to re-evaluate the worth of their testimony. If you can present your case without it, it may just be easier to let the witness go.

  2. Effective Alternatives Are Available
    You have options available to you that make it easier for everyone involved. Video conferences are a great way to obtain a deposition, especially if the witness lives far away. You can also perform the deposition over the telephone.

  3. Less Manpower is Needed
    If you want the legal deposition performed in person, send someone from your office to the wittiness’s location. In fact, you just need one person to conduct the deposition.

  4. Saves Money
    Depending on where the witness is located, traveling could be extremely costly. A remote deposition eliminates the need for traveling, while still providing you with the testimony you need.

  5. Saves Time
    Traveling to a witness takes time away from the office and delays building the case. It also takes time away from your family and other obligations. Performing a remote deposition allows you to get what you need without wasting important time and resources.

With today’s advanced technology, remote depositions can save you time and money. Hiring a transcriptionist in the witness’s area makes it easy for you to get what you need without inconveniencing anyone. A remote deposition is completely legal and can be used in almost any court proceeding.
