How Legal Technology Solutions Have Improved Depositions

Depositions are a vital part of the legal process. With the latest innovative and state of the art technology, depositions are easier to record and provide accurate and concise information in a digital format. The latest technology solutions make it easier for both the legal teams to receive and record the relevant information accurately, as needed from the witnesses.

Remote Locations

Digitally recording a legal deposition from a remote location allows attorneys to talk to the witness directly and in real time, without forcing them to be present. For individuals who are in a different state or country, this makes it easier for the legal teams to get the information they need without forcing the person to make an appearance.

Live Transcription

A digital, legal deposition allows for live, real-time transcription. This provides an accurate account of the witness’s statement. During the deposition, the witness can be either recorded on audio or videotape, giving both legal teams an accurate account of the information that is provided.

Video Deposition

Video depositions are ideal because the recording is a valuable way of maintaining a record of proof as to what happened during the deposition, the demeanor of the person being deposed, what questions were asked, and the exact words of the person giving the deposition.

Increased Security

A legal deposition provides a secure environment, especially for individuals who have been threatened or are scared of facing their accuser. Because the deposition is videotaped, there is also an increased level of security when it comes to protecting the files.

No More Notes

Notes were often passed between attorneys to ensure the right questions were asked. This could be distracting, especially if the notes were passed while the person was answering questions. Now, notes can be sent via emails or text messages for a quicker, less distracting method of communication.
