Diverse Reporting
Services for All Needs

We offer a broad range of reporting, recording and transcription services to meet the changing landscape of legal documentation and recordkeeping. Unique circumstances of each case sometimes require a unique solution or set of services.

We Offer

Depositions

Deposition testimony is taken orally, with an attorney asking questions and the deponent (the individual being questioned) answering while a court reporter records the testimony. Deposition testimony is generally taken under oath, and the court reporter and the deponent often sign affidavits attesting to the accuracy of the subsequent printed transcript.

Trials

The chief purpose of a trial is to secure fair and impartial administration of justice between the parties to the action. A trial seeks to ascertain the truth of the matters in issue between the parties and to apply the law to those matters. Also, a trial provides a final legal determination of the dispute between the parties.

Court Hearings

Hearings resemble trials in that they ordinarily are held publicly and involve opposing parties. They differ from trials in that they feature more relaxed standards of evidence and procedure and take place in a variety of settings before a broader range of authorities (judges, examiners, and lawmakers).

Examinations Under Oath

An examination under oath is one of the most useful tools available to insurers and when done right, can also be a help to insureds. An examination under oath (EUO) is a formal proceeding during which an insured, under oath and in the presence of a court reporter, is questioned by an insurance company representative.

Sworn and Unsworn Statements

Oaths may be administered for the signing of a document, or they may be for a purpose unrelated to a document, such as giving testimony. What makes a statement “sworn” is the requirement that the oath-taker appears before a person who is authorized to administer oaths, such as a court-designated representative or a Notary Public.

Arbitrations

Arbitration, a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), is a way to resolve disputes outside the courts. The dispute will be decided by one or more persons (the “arbitrators”, “arbiters” or “arbitral tribunal”), which renders the “arbitration award”. An arbitration award is legally binding on both sides and enforceable in the courts.

Public and Private Meetings

To maintain a record of what was discussed and the state of matters discussed—such as whether issues were resolved or not—a court reporter can be present. That way, when agreements are reached or decisions made, they are documented and approved by all in attendance.

Grand Jury Testimony

The grand jury plays an important role in the criminal process, but not one that involves a finding of guilt or punishment of a party. Instead, a prosecutor will work with a grand jury to decide whether to bring criminal charges or an indictment against a potential defendant — usually reserved for serious felonies.

Nationwide Scheduling

We have rooms in our offices in downtown Fort Myers, Florida as well as a secondary location. They can be reserved in advance following our scheduling procedures by e mail, from anywhere in the country.

IMEs/CMEs

An independent medical examination (IME)—sometimes called a compulsory medical exam (CME)—occurs when a doctor, psychologist, or other licensed healthcare professional conducts an examination of an individual to help answer specific legal or administrative questions related to a variety of situations, e.g., a disability claim; workers’ compensation case; a personal injury lawsuit (tort claim); impaired professionals’ program; or sexual harassment in the workplace.

Expedited Transcripts

A copy of the transcript may be ordered from the court reporter and a fee paid for the original and first copy; if the opposing party also requests a copy, there will be a reduced fee for the transcript copy. In most appeals, a copy of the transcript is required so that the court of appeals can review the entire proceedings in the trial court. Transcripts are not printed from the record unless transcription is requested.

Videography

The power of video is indisputable, persuasive and powerful. While our skilled stenographic court reporters create a verbatim record of the deposition or other legal proceeding, words alone do not apture body language, intonation, facial expressions, agitation, disrespect, or gestures.

Videoconferencing/Remote Counsel

When parties involved in a legal dispute are unable to meet in the same location, videoconferencing is often used, allowing attorneys to question witnesses or deponents remotely from wherever they are. Our court reporters create both a stenographic record as well as a recording of the video feed.

Transcription From All Media

We create a physical transcript of the event being recorded across all media including video and audio recordings, as well as live trials, depositions and more.
