The Importance of Customer Focus

Finding a court reporting firm an attorney can rely on for each and every one of their cases is an invaluable discovery. The firm begins to anticipate attorneys needs before they even arise, making for a partnership that garners the best results. A loyal client base is what makes the greatest difference in the success of a company.

“Clientele loyalty is crucial to the life of a court reporting firm,” Leo Snetsinger, an expert from Big Lake, Minnesota, says. “When attorneys find a court reporting firm that they mesh with, it makes all the difference.”

That is part of the reason how the Miami court reporters at Laws Reporting have managed to find success in The Magic City for 45 years. The firm has established themselves as a leader in the business with their dedication to their craft as well as the needs of their clients. This has resulted in cultivating strong bonds with attorneys that last years.

Laws Reporting made an effort to keep their clients’ needs at the forefront of their mind throughout the global pandemic. When many businesses shut down, Laws turned their focus on services such as remote depositions and videoconferencing. This allowed attorneys to keep with the course of law without putting their clients, their families, or themselves at risk. Remote depositions in Miami have now become a standard of business that Laws Reporting will continue to implement.

“Laws Reporting is our primary court reporting company,” one client says. “Our hearings, depositions, and trials are carefully handled by professional court reporters and transcripts timely delivered. We find Laws’ staff accommodating and friendly. Our IT requests to conduct virtual proceedings are efficiently addressed by Laws Reporting. We value their services and our relationship with them.”

But what happens when an attorney leaves the Miami-Dade area? Do they really have to go back into the trenches in search of a firm that delivers the high standards they now expect? With some court reporting firms, this would unfortunately be the case. With Laws Reporting, it isn’t. Laws Reporting has satellite offices across South Florida, giving attorneys the convenience of meeting with their favorite litigation support professionals as far south as Key West, and as far west as Naples.

One-Stop-Shop For Litigation Support in Las Vegas

Credit: Ryan Reporting

While Las Vegas doesn’t hold the title of “the city that never sleeps,” it certainly rings true. Las Vegas hustle and bustles at all hours of the day. With an abundance of restaurants, casinos, entertainment venues, hotels, and small businesses, Las Vegas has something for everyone.

This makes for a robust legal scene. Attorneys from all areas of practice make a home for themselves to serve the people of Las Vegas the justice they need. Cases here could be anything from workers compensation, to copyright, to criminal, and every area of practice in between. There isn’t one type of law that goes unrepresented in a city like this.

No matter where they practice, attorneys are busy. This is doubly true for those in Clarke County. And with their heavy workload, attorneys and paralegals can’t afford to shop around between litigation support firms in search of each and every one of the legal resources they need. They don’t want to have to schedule a court reporter from one firm, a conference room from another, and a videographer from a third. These days, attorneys want to find that court reporting firm that is a one-stop-shop for all their legal needs. Too many court reporting firms fall behind on this trend. As a result, they are unable provide attorneys the litigation support they need, which leads to a lull in business that is difficult to recover from.

Monice Campbell wanted to make a difference in the Las Vegas legal scene that other litigation support firms couldn’t match. She realized that what really makes a difference in a deposition “boils down to two real people: the person who answers your call to schedule the deposition and the court reporter seated in the deposition who is responsible for the record.”

As a result, Campbell developed Envision Legal to serve attorneys across Nevada with the quality litigation support they deserve. Envision’s responsive staff prides themselves on getting the job done right the first time on cases big or small, and deposition or trial. These Las Vegas court reporters have served on cases such as the Venetian Lein Claim Discovery, the Regional Justice Center, Hyatt v. CA Franchise Tax Board, and so many more. The firm proudly displays a number of cases they’ve served on online for potential clients to browse. 

While their resume is impressive, part of what makes Envision Legal such a desirable court reporting firm to work with is the variety of services offered. Each and every one is approached with the same, meticulous attention, so clients can be confident they are scheduling a service that will exceed their needs. Their certified court reporters have national certifications and are recognized for their speed. When a client requests real-time depositions, they can expect their transcript streamed for the counsel to be at least 99% accurate. The firm’s certified legal videographers provide clients broadcast-quality video synchronized with the transcript of the legal proceedings. For clients in need of e-Discovery or Document review, they can expect hosted discovery on leading review platforms with managed review by multiple-degreed attorneys from JurisClerk’s team.

With Envision Legal, attorneys don’t have to hop from firm to firm in search of the litigation support they need. This saves them valuable time to spend helping their client win their case. For many attorney’s Envision Legal’s name is like a seal of approval. Clients know that scheduling a service means speed, accuracy, and a dedication to customer service that many firms just do not possess.

“Envision Legal really goes above and beyond to make their clients feel like individuals with individualized needs,” Philip Gabelli, an expert from Sarasota, Florida says. “Many businesses in major cities like Las Vegas don’t have a grasp on customer service like that. Envision Legal is really something special.”

Businesses across Florida have been shutting down and instructing employees to work from home in hopes of curbing the spread of the virus. The staff at Ryan Reporting understands that many attorneys may not want to leave home to keep themselves, and their families, safe, but they still want to proceed with their cases. The discourse of law coming to a standstill is difficult for attorneys and their clients alike.

To help combat that problem, Ryan Reporting proudly offers remote deposition and videoconferencing services. By scheduling a remote deposition service, attorneys can meet with their legal teams from the comfort of their home.

Staying Afloat in the Court Reporting World

The world of court reporting isn’t what it once was. As technology has grown, adapted, and changed, so have the needs of attorneys. A court reporter who is timely, effective, and accurate is highly important, of course, but that isn’t all attorneys need. These days, attorneys expect far more than what was previously expected of their litigation service, and court reporting firms who don’t incorporate these needs into their practices sink.

What are these key factors?

Court reporting firms should offer a wide variety of litigation services. Videography has become a staple of the court reporting world, but successful firms offer realtime reporting, subpoena services, conference rooms and so much more. They offer 24/7 online scheduling for busy attorneys. These are the bare bones of what court reporting firms need to offer to be competitive in this climate.

So when a court reporting firm has been in business for over 40 years, clients can be confident that the company has cracked the code of what works in the legal world. In Miami, there are few litigation support services that have stood the test of time like Laws Reporting. Since 1976, Laws Reporting has served as the premiere location for court reporting, and other legal services, in South Florida. No case size is too intimidating or too small—after decades of work, nothing surprises the staff at Laws.

“A lot of businesses in big cities miss the mark for what their clients need,” Jasel Patel, CEO of NGOTechnologies says. “Laws Reporting has found that sweet spot between big city expectations, and small city personalization and standard of customer service. They are truly a force to be reckoned with.”

These Miami court reporters check off each and every box that makes a great court reporting firm. The staff is well known for their speed, accuracy, and effectiveness. When it comes to getting a clearer transcript, attorneys in South Florida won’t find one. But Laws Reporting is more than just a stellar court reporting firm—they are a full-service litigation firm. They offer the services attorneys have come to expect along with well over a dozen more. With Laws Reporting, attorneys and paralegals can schedule translators, streaming services, and aids of execution. That is just the tip of the iceberg.

The staff at Laws understand how important it is to have a court reporting firm you can trust wherever you are. Their connection to the National Network Reporting Company allows them to extend their services worldwide, but Laws has taken a more personal approach in South Florida. South Florida clients don’t have to drive to Miami or Fort Lauderdale to meet with Laws’ staff—there is likely a satellite office near them. From Fort Pierce all the way to Key West, attorneys can pop into an office just minutes from their own to chat with the qualified staff at Laws Reporting.

It is difficult for any business to stay open for 40 years. In a field as tumultuous and ever-changing as law, this is 10 times more difficult. Laws Reporting has unlocked the secret that keeps their firm alive, but it isn’t as mind-blowing as one may think: Laws listens to their clients. They take their clients’ needs into account, and apply them to business. It really is that simple. Their client-first approach brings attorneys and paralegals back time and time again.

What Makes Hanna Reporting’s Realtime Reporters Special?

Court reporting and realtime reporting are sisters, not twins. Both involve recording the legal proceedings of a deposition or trial, but that is where the similarities stop.

Realtime reporters are made to be the true peak of speed and accuracy. As the name suggests, realtime reporting involves producing a legible transcript in real time, most often so the text can be displayed on another device nearly instantaneously. This allows the judge, the jury, and other legal professionals to easily follow along with who said what right as it is said.

Most court reporting firms offer realtime reporting services. It has more or less become a staple in the industry and has become more readily called upon than other forms of court reporting. It takes a special kind of professional to execute realtime reporting to the standard it should be, and it takes a special type of firm to bring together these individuals.

In Houston, Texas, Hanna & Hanna Certified Court Reporting & Video Specialists have found that formula. Regularly known as Hanna Reporting, the firm has worked cases big and small across the great state of Texas. Their variety of litigation services allows Hanna Reporting to serve the needs of their clients to the fullest extent.

“There aren’t better court reporters in Houston,” Julie Rehberg of Omaha, Nebraska says. “They work around the clock to make sure their clients have everything they need when they need it.”

Hanna Reporting encourages their clients to save time and money by booking a realtime reporter for their deposition or trial, despite it being one of the most difficult services they offer. Why? Because they know that, in the long run, realtime reporting will benefit their clients, which is what truly matters to these Houston court reporters.

When attorneys and paralegals book a realtime reporting service with Hanna Reporting, they can expect to have the testimony in front of them right away. This allows them to highlight areas that may need cross-examination. When necessary Hanna’s Houston court reporters will provide their clients laptops, so that they can be confident the hookup between stentotype and laptop works every time.

It is comforting for many to know Hanna’s staff push through further education to be the best reporter possible. Their realtime professionals are Certified Realtime Reporters, Certified Livenote Reporters, and Certified Live Deposition reporters. With such a variety, clients know they’ve booked the best of the best.

For more information, call (713) 840-8484, fill out this contact form, or visit their offices. In case of an emergency or last-minute booking after hours, email afterhours@hannareporting.com, and you will receive a prompt call or email that confirms the service.

Gore Brothers Announce Tips for Videoconferences

(Baltimore, Maryland) March 6, 2019

Gore Brothers, a court reporting firm based in the Baltimore area, is pleased to announce their tips for a successful videoconference. These tips allow attorneys and their witnesses to know exact what to do—or what not to do—in order to look professional and put together. From lighting to what you should wear, Gore Brothers has sound advice for every aspect of videoconferencing.

In the world of law, videoconferencing has become an incredibly important aspect of business. Sometimes, it’s difficult for a legal team to get together and discuss the happenings of a case—especially when a legal team is spread out. Videoconferencing allows teams to meet face to face without having to spend an excessive amount of time and money on travel.

“Videoconferencing makes communicating with a team ten times easier,” Jacob Blumenfrucht of New York says. “Emails can be easily misconstrued, and it can be difficult or organize conference calls. Videoconferencing allows everyone to actively engage with one another, so meetings run much more smoothly.”

For over 60 years, Gore Brothers have provided attorneys and paralegals in Washington D.C., Maryland, and the Virginia area with quality court reporting. Clients know that, no matter their area of practice, Gore Brothers has specialists that can be of assistance to them. As the legal world has changed, so has their offered services, and the Baltimore court reporters have expanded their reach to include videography, videoconferencing, and a wide array of litigation services.

For more information about Gore Brothers, call (410) 837-3027, email reporter@gorebrothers.com, or visit one of their office locations.

The Key to a Successful Court Reporting Firm

Credit: Travel + Leisure

When attorneys and paralegals in the Cleveland area need a court reporting service, they don’t pitter-patter between court reporting firms. For the best professionals, only one firm comes to mind: Cady Reporting. For over 40 years, Cady Reporting has served the Cleveland area with their wide variety of court reporting specialists and litigation services. They are well known for their speed and accuracy—firm president, Charles (Chuck) Cady has won a number of awards for just that—but it’s their customer service that truly sets them apart from the rest.

What is it about their customer service that changes the game? Is it responsiveness? Surely, acting as a highly attentive firm would garner attention. While that is certainly part of the equation, it isn’t what makes or breaks them. It is the fact that they treat their clients—attorneys and paralegals on big or small cases—with an unparalleled level of respect. The staff knows the names of their clients, and what’s more, wants the best for their case. Clients aren’t just numbers to justify the means. Clients are almost like family.

“Like so many services, [court reporting] can become easy to be commoditized,” Chuck Cady says on the firm’s success. “I think the best way to stand out and that we stand out [in] is being pleasant to work with and making people feel that we’ll happily go the extra mile to take care of their needs.”

No one wants to feel as though their requests are a burden. The staff at Cady Reporting would never treat their clients in such a fashion. Whatever their clients need, Cady Reporting’s staff is happy to deliver, because this isn’t just a job to them. These Cleveland court reporters are dedicated to their work, and that dedication shows throughout each and every aspect of the business.

“Dedicated court reporters express a real magic in their work that other court reporters can’t quite capture,” Brandon Bell, a legal expert from Oak Park, Illinois, says. “They don’t achieve the same level of accuracy, and they don’t retain clients. This is something the staff at Cady Reporting never has to worry about.”

For attorneys who know the industry, in Cleveland, Ohio, the only court reporting firm to turn to is Cady Reporting.

To schedule a service with Cleveland’s best, call 888.624.2239, email cadystaff@cadyreporting.com, or visit their offices.

How Ryan Reporting Stays Ahead of the Curve

Technology has rapidly changed and transformed in massive ways over the past century. We went from horse-drawn transportation to cars being practically a necessity. We used to need an operator to connect our calls. Now, our telephones have gone from bulky and wall-mounted to pocket-sized with all the world’s knowledge at the touch of a button.

The businesses that reject change are the ones that fail. When searching for a variety of services, the first thing many of us do is go to Google. If a business decided to invest in a listing in Yellow Pages instead of a well-designed website, they will more likely than not lose an innumerable number of customers. For some, offering free WiFi isn’t something that was even on their register. It’s something customers immediately recognize, however, and it can even turn away business. These little nuances of the modern world cannot be neglected.

Court Reporting in the Modern Age

Unfortunately, too many court reporting firms fall into this bracket of business. They are comfortable with the equipment, resources, and website they have, and while comfort is a good thing, it can be bad for business. If a business doesn’t evolve with the ever-changing world, it gets left behind.

These changes don’t have to be scary, however. Take Orlando court reporters at Ryan Reporting, for instance. The court reporting firm took notice of the rapidly changing legal industry, assessed them, and incorporated them into their business. This is what has kept the firm’s doors open for over 40 years.

How Ryan Reporting Keeps Up

Ryan Reporting recognized that, these days, attorneys and paralegals don’t have the time to hop from firm to firm in search of each and every one of their litigation services. So, on top of offering quality, certified court reporters, Ryan Reporting also provides clients with videography services, deposition suites, case research, translators, word indexing, and more.

The firm also knows that to have an entirely successful case, attorneys need a litigation team that has full understanding of their area of practice. Experienced court reporters that are fluent in the terminology and nuances of the field can make a world of difference for the outcome of a case.

What is perhaps one of their most innovative services, however, is their online booking engine. Many court reporting firms still require attorneys to call in to request a service. Email is certainly easier for on the go professionals, but Ryan Reporting’s mobile-friendly booking engine really changes the game. Attorneys simply have to fill in information about their case and services needed, and like that, they can schedule a service anywhere, at any time of day—be it during their morning coffee run, or right before bed.

Legal analyst, Lucero Nunez, has nothing but good to say about the firm.

Ryan Reporting really is ahead of the court reporting industry. All of their changes have been made with their clients’ needs in mind, and as a result, they soar as leaders in the industry. Struggling firms should look to Ryan Reporting inspiration.”
