Online Case Management as a Legal Advantage South Carolina
As you probably know, technology has had a profound impact on legal work and the speed in which it can be completed. That’s why lawyers who can stay organized and quickly access all relevant information are the ones who end up winning the argument or the case at hand.
This is yet another reason it’s advantageous to retain a leading court reporting agency that can provide the technology to supply you with instant access to the documents you need for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other legal proceeding. If you’re not yet able to do so, imagine being able to view your case information with just one keystroke on a computer—or on an iPad, iPhone, or any other mobile device connected to the Internet.
Online Access to Your Calendar, Transcripts, and Exhibits
Among our many capabilities, we can provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case, including:
– A personal online calendar
– Case transcripts

Our secure online system allows you to view and download any materials you need—24/7. Only you and those individuals you designate (other attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries) have access to the highly sensitive materials related to your case in South Carolina.
Our Legal Videographers | SC
As for the other seasoned professionals who are a part of our team, those include experienced legal videographers. Some attorneys can’t resist the temptation to cut corners when it comes to videotaping a deposition or other hearing. In reality, you want professional legal videographers who have been trained to film in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting and camera position, and who utilize the kind of specialized equipment that can capture the quality of audio and imagery you’re looking for. Perhaps there are some occasions when you might be able to get away with cutting corners; but when things don’t go exactly as planned, that’s when you’ll appreciate having a seasoned professional working with you—the kind of individual who has the resources to maintain a certain amount of redundancy, for example.
After all, you never want to finish a deposition and find that the video you recorded is unusable. As you know, video can be a powerful tool in a legal proceeding, particularly when matters reach the trial stage and issues are argued in front of a judge or jury. That’s why if you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, you want to make sure that it employs expert videographers utilizing state-of-the-art technology that can capture the most subtle details, including body language, facial expressions, and the kind of gestures that might be indicative of witness coaching. A single gesture or facial expression can help buttress a settlement negotiation or courtroom argument.
Also, if you require editing services, our editors are every bit the equal of our videographers in terms of quality and experience. We offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion to other formats, including MPEG, DVD, CD, and even VHS in SC.
Video Conferencing Solutions | SC
Another common need among our clients is a video conferencing solution. Oftentimes, it’s just not possible or practical to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition. That’s why we have made a commitment to providing our clients around the country with top quality video conferencing solutions, which allow you to take depositions remotely while still getting the same results you would in person.
In other words, thanks to technology you no longer need to be limited by geography—or need to travel to a remote location. Attorneys and other law firms employees know that getting on an airplane to travel to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming. With video conferencing, you can reduce travel costs and limit other expenses, while also avoiding the hassle associated with coordinating a deposition at a remote location.
So whether you need a single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference we can help. We have access to hundreds of locations across the country and throughout the world, and our trained specialists excel at coordinating the logistics. In fact, when you enlist our video conferencing services for a deposition or other legal proceeding, we will provide you a detailed outline of what you can expect from us, contributing to your peace of mind. Want to save time and money by using video conferencing for your next deposition? Give us a call and give video conferencing a try.
We take care of the video conference setup, which includes selecting the location(s), working out the logistics, supplying all of the necessary equipment, testing the equipment, ensuring Internet access, and linking two or more locations. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment with high-definition video and our equipment is compatible with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Our conference rooms come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet connections, as well as large monitors and all the amenities you’ve come to expect.
Last but not least, we also provide technical support throughout the proceeding so that you can concentrate on the deposition and don’t need to worry about technical snafus.
Interpreters in South Carolina
In terms of our people-based solutions, two of the most requested services we provide are: finding interpreters and legal videographers.
Regarding the importance of qualified interpreters, many parties to lawsuits and related legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language. This can be a challenge for attorneys who want to make sure their clients’ voices are heard—and that they fully understand the questions being asked of them during proceedings. But as you probably know, it’s not always easy to find a qualified interpreter at a moment’s notice, especially if your client’s first language is a less commonly spoken dialect. In some cases, you might even need interpreters and court reporters that are able to work in multiple languages.
As part of our effort to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs, we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. That’s why we have developed a stable of certified court reporters and interpreters for 140 different languages, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. We can arrange for interpreting services for Mandarin, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Dutch, Swedish, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic, among many others. While we might have to draw the line at providing an interpreter for an invented language like Esperanto, short of needing an Esperanto-to-English interpreter, we can help. So whether you need an interpreter for a local case or an international deposition, give us a call today!
