With today being St. Patrick’s Day, it is that time of year to think about what part luck plays in choosing a qualified and experienced stenographic court reporter, videographer or interpreter. Is it a pure shot at luck, or is there more to it than that?
When it comes to success in the courtroom, having an experienced and knowledgeable team behind you can make the difference between winning and losing. Planet Depos takes that insight into consideration when assigning your team of experts.
All Planet Depos court reporters must go through a proprietary vetting process. This is to ensure our reporters are highly skilled, professional and reliable. Before being hired, each reporter is assessed based on their writing skill, knowledge of related software, as well as subject-matter expertise. Reporters must also hold state and/or national certification. In order to remain relevant within the profession and the industry, as well as to maintain certification, reporters must meet continuing education requirements related to all areas of their field, including ethics and emerging technologies.
Qualified and experienced videographers can also mean the difference between a drab or impactful presentation. All videographers are trained in the latest trial technology. Transcripts from the court reporter are synced to match the video to provide a powerful playback of evidence at trial. Videographers are also trained to provide on-site editing.
Choosing the right interpreter is critical to capturing the testimony of a witness. All Planet Depos interpreters are pre-qualified on hiring and are assigned based upon experience, skill, and knowledge of the subject matter.
Ultimately, choosing the right team of court reporters, videographers and interpreters is not at all about luck, but rather like piecing together a complicated puzzle, all skill sets working together for the success of your case.
