Five Reasons to Hire a Georgia Court Reporter

Court reporting is being inundated with the latest state-of-the-art, tech-driven options. While these innovations are generally a positive thing, digital advancements and revolutionary applications can cause more problems than they solve when it comes to the legal sector. For this reason, it is important to have a trained, experienced, and knowledgeable court reporter on a law firm’s team. Nonetheless, six states including New Hampshire and Vermont already use digital systems to record all or most of their court trials, according to the National Center for State Courts.

In reality, as America’s courtrooms go digital, the need for court reporters still exists. While not all court reporters type their notes and, instead, speak into a recording device to transcribe later, the reporter is watching the courtroom and documenting every utterance. These skilled individuals provide an unrivaled and essential service for the legal industry in providing accurate and verbatim testimony for depositions, trials, hearings, meetings, and arbitrations.

Below are five reasons why hiring a stenographic court reporter is a good business choice:

  • Quicker Draft Transcripts: as opposed to digital reporters, who can take days and sometimes weeks to prepare a draft of the transcript, court reporters have the ability to provide a draft of the transcript at the conclusion of the proceedings;
  • Real-Time Translation: real-time translation of testimony can only be accomplished by way of a stenographic court reporter;
  • Dialogue Management: should more than one person speak during the proceedings, the court reporter is able to record the multiple layers of dialogue and request that people speak one at a time to ensure each word is recorded and attributed to the correct person;
  • Reading Back of Testimony During a Deposition: it is not uncommon to need to read a portion of the testimony back during proceedings – scanning through a digital recording can be time-consuming; a court reporter is trained to quickly scan his or her notes to locate the requested portion of the testimony;
  • High Quality Training: court reporters go through an intensive training program that includes learning legal and medical terminology, court room protocol and the governing Rules of Civil Procedure.
