3 Things to Know When Hiring a Court Reporter

Using a court reporting agency to meet your deposition needs is important. Make sure to ask yourself a few essential questions before choosing the agency for you: Is the reporting staff capable, intelligent and responsible? Are they considered professionals in their field? Is the agency reputable, and will they stand behind their work?

To ensure you are hiring the right agency, consider the following:

  1. Cost. Don't be surprised when you receive your invoice. Many agencies charge "additional" fees. Prior to scheduling your deposition, ensure that you are clear regarding all fees associated with your job specifications.

  2. Turnaround times. When scheduling your deposition, ask the guaranteed turnaround time for finalized legal transcriptions and legal videos. It is also important to know if the agency offers rush services, and if so, how much they cost.

  3. Quality of service. Reputable court reporting agencies understand that accuracy and timeliness are essential, both for you and also for the clients you represent. Be sure your court reporting agency is able to handle your case in a timely fashion, especially if it is large or especially complex. No matter how demanding your expectations, you should be able to rely on both prompt delivery and a professional product.
