A deposition is a meeting in which attorneys can uncover crucial pieces of evidence. Most depositions are easily handled by a single attorney. There are occasions when specific deposition services are needed that will have a direct impact on the case, but require more than one attorney to be present. The following 6 deposition services can help court reporters get the best out of depositions:
Legal Suites Legal suites have the technological capabilities of video recording, or audio taping a deposition. Suites are often used in cases where nationwide reporting is required. This allows for a confidential statement to be taken in one location for a legal proceeding that is several miles away, or even across the country.
Nationwide Reporting Nationwide reporting services are offered to attorneys who need to have depositions taken from people who do not live in close proximity to where the legal action is taking place.
Translation Service Translation services are offered for attorneys who handle cases in which one or more of the parties do not speak English. South American, European, Asia and Middle Eastern languages are a few of the most commonly requested languages.
Telephonic Depositions Telephonic depositions are those that are taken over the phone. An attorney may take this type of deposition if the person giving the statement is home bound or, bedridden.
Video Conferencing Video conferencing allows attorneys from both sides to be present during the taping of a deposition. Individuals who are sitting in on the video conference can interact and follow the deposition in real time as coverage of the conference is streamed over the internet.
Videography Depositions can be recorded and reviewed so that certain behaviors can be identified and addressed before the witness has to testify in court. It provides the attorneys with a real life look at how a defendant or witness may act when put on the stand.
