Scheduling a court reporter or legal videographer for a remote deposition can be such a hassle, and the bigger the city, the harder it is to find the right professional for a specific proceeding.
Many factors go into finding the right court reporter or legal videographer:
- Does the deposition need to be held with videoconference capabilities?
- Would your witness like to meet somewhere close to their home or work?
- How do you ensure the court reporter has the qualifications for your specific proceeding?
- How much are the services going to cost?
These are just a few examples of the kind of information a scheduler may need to consider. Since no two cases are alike, it’s important to have the available means for hiring the right court reporter in the right location.
So how do you go about booking?
If your deposition is in a rural area, you may have to go through several contacts in neighboring cities to find out who services that location. The process is challenging and can become a bit of a gamble when you’re booking in an unfamiliar area; not to mention, you never know who the service provider is going to be.
