One of the nation’s cornerstones is its judicial system. Established by the Founding Fathers hundreds of years ago, much of the basic structure still remains relatively intact today. One thing that’s changed with the advent of modern technology is the way in which court reporting services and deposition services can be done.
The Elite Court Reporting Agency has grown with these deposition services, such as videoconferencing and video depositions, which allow for these legal services to be handled remotely, or brought to you. From plaintiffs looking for day-in-the-life videos to legal depositions given via video conferencing, these things have changed the legal game to the benefit of those involved. Here are a few of the groups that can benefit from these new services.
- The Disabled: In the eyes of the law, everyone is equal. Part of that means that even if you’re disabled, you’re still required to give a legal deposition should the case call for it. Instead of dealing with the hassle of traveling to an office or courtroom, you can have virtual face-to-face meetings from a place that is convenient for you.
- The Elderly: The same goes for senior citizens and elderly folks that might have trouble getting around. Bring the deposition services to you rather than the other way around.
- Parents with Children: Just because you’re physically active and mobile doesn’t mean you necessarily have the time to travel great distances, especially if you have young children to tend to. Legal videoconferencing is a great way tool for parents too.
- Students: From class schedules to extra-curricular activities, the life of a college student can be jam packed. The modern deposition services that we offer were practically made with this new age mindset of using technology to our advantage.
- Busy People: Everyone. Pretty much everyone who leads a busy life can benefit from the many different legal offerings that can be done remotely.
There will always be a place for the 21,200 court reporters in the U.S. (as of 2012, which is expected to grow by 10% by 2020) and the 225 words per minute they type to be certified by the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA). However, as society continues to grow, the technology we use in the legal world should respond accordingly.
