- Make sure they send reporters from the Quality Court
The one is self-explicative. You want your depositions as professional trial reporter as possible; right? But what else should you be looking for beyond the minimum qualification for a CSR licence?
Is the on time court reporter?
Is the court reporter dressed professionally?
Is the reporter on court easy to work with or is he / she stressed?
Is the court reporter confident in the process of swearing the oath?
- Make sure they provide workers with qualified assistance
You want to make sure you have good customer service from the court reporting agency that you are working with. Everybody hates voice mail and long-winded menu options, “Press 1 for this, Press 2 for that …” Your court reporting company should have real, live people to talk to. And those must be friendly and professional.
- They have a great website to make sure
There is no excuse for a court consulting company not providing its own platform complete with deposition schedule, customer access and a whole host of evidence depository apps these days.
- Make sure they deliver Transcripts Top Notch
When you receive your transcript from the court reporting service, you want to make sure the work product you are paying for is of the highest quality and top notch.
- Make sure the areas you need are serviced
Does your trial news service have trial reporters that can fly when you decide to take your deposition out in the center of nowhere? What is more, does the court monitoring service have a readily accessible local location with meeting suites?
- They are a “one stop shop” to make sure.
Who wants to be dealing with multiple vendors? In considering a trial consulting company you ought to pick one that can cover as much of the deposition issues as practicable.
- Make sure they have a written guarantee of satisfaction
When working with a court reporting service you want to ensure that they eliminate all risk of doing business with them (especially at the beginning when you’re still trying them out) by providing a guarantee of satisfaction.
- Make sure that they are well reputed
When was the last time you took a doctor without first getting a referral? I have a phrase, “Never eat in an empty restaurant,” which is my cardinal guideline for restaurants. The same holds true with court monitoring systems. Make sure that the one you pick has good testimonials, and the word from current customers on the street is positive.
