At Alderson, our court reporting services are at the heart of our business. We offer reporting services for arbitrations, mediations, trials, depositions, videoconferences and more. We can accommodate every need.
We understand the skills and qualifications necessary for value-added court reporting services. Alderson maintains the most stringent guidelines and guarantees that our court reporters and videographers are skilled in the latest technologies – from realtime reporting to streaming video via remote Internet access. Moreover, with a nationwide database of reporters, we can match you with professionals that have matter-related experience, history with your company or industry, and top-notch referrals.
Alderson’s premium reporting service – realtime reporting – offers you top of the line reporting professionals who can stream text directly to your computer while a deposition or arbitration is taking place. Differing from your average 225 word / minute stenographer, these seasoned reporters are often versed in conflict-free writing theory (e.g. “to” vs. “two” vs. “too”) and tend to offer the most readable transcripts, even in draft form.
Even though realtime reporters are often the most skilled, highly seasoned, and dedicated professionals of their trade, their services can provide substantial savings by providing highly accurate drafts in realtime at a substantially lower cost than same day delivery of a final transcript.
At Alderson, we further increase the value of our management of the reporters and videographers nationwide by sending them your case dictionaries, deposition notices and other helpful information reducing valuable time spent clarifying items with the reporter.
For your convenience, we have two conference rooms and two break out rooms at our D.C. location. They are available for your use if your depositions are in the Washington D.C. area. If your deposition is elsewhere, we have a nationwide network and can provide you with a conference room for your depositions.
Alderson can arrange to stream text similar to television captioning from the deposition location via the internet to your computer or tablet. This technology allows personnel in the office to view the testimony as it is taking place in addition to providing instant messaging capability. This can enable your firm to economize on travel costs while increasing your staff’s participation in a deposition. Your attorneys and experts can participate in discovery proceedings without leaving the office.
As an added value to our full range of reporting services, Alderson offers our unique management reporting services. Management reporting is invaluable to many of our clients, enabling them to assess expenditures related to a matter, recognize areas for cost containment and allocate budgets and track spending for a case. Reports are fully customizable, offering data filtered by any or all of the following variables:
Our knowledgeable staff can work with you to identify and define your specific need, and best of all, management reporting is offered at no additional cost to our clients upon request.
