If you’ve ever had to book a court reporter or videographer for a remote deposition, you know how much of a hassle it can be, and the bigger the city, the harder it is to find the right professional for your needs.
So many factors go into finding the right reporter and what demands they will need to meet.
- Does the deposition need to be held with video conference capabilities?
- Would your witness like to meet somewhere close to their home or work?
- Do you need the proceeding to be held somewhere near your hotel or airport?
These are just a few examples of the kinds of accommodations you may need to consider. Since no two cases are alike, it’s important that you have the available means for hiring the right reporter in the right location.
So how do you go about booking then?
Is it a simple Google search for court reporting agencies in the location your deposition is being held? And how do you decide which agency is right for you?
Say your deposition is in a more rural area, you may have to go through several agencies in neighboring cities to find out who services that area. The process is challenging and always becomes a bit of a gamble when you’re booking in an unfamiliar area; not to mention, you never know who the professional is going to be.
