FAQ: What is a Deposition?

FAQ: What is a Deposition?

Were you served with a summons by a process server to appear at a deposition?  A deposition is a question-and-answer session held out of court.  The attorneys have a chance to ask you what facts you know about the case at hand.  Your deposition will be recorded verbatim by a court reporter, then turned into a written transcript that can be used later in the case, or at trial. Many depositions are held at a neutral location.  At Cady Reporting, we host them in our conference rooms almost every day!  If you are an attorney who is looking for a nice conference room to hold a deposition, or videotaped deposition feel free to contact Cady Reporting.  If you schedule with our court reporter, we provide the room free of charge....
FAQ: Do I Need a Specialized Medical Malpractice Reporter?

FAQ: Do I Need a Specialized Medical Malpractice Reporter?

Many attorneys have at one time or another wondered if they needed a court reporter who is specialized in the area of medical malpractice depositions.  The answer to that one is simple! Basically, any qualified court reporter should be able to take down testimony from any area of the law including fast and technical medical malpractice depositions.  At Cady Reporting Services in Ohio, we make sure each and every one of our court reporters is up to the task of difficult medical malpractice and any other technical deposition – even when writing real-time!  If you would like to work with one of our experienced and qualified reporters just call us at 888.624.2239 (CADY) or schedule by clicking here.   This article was written by Michelle Cady-Cook.  She is the Director of Marketing and part owner of Cady Reporting (a WBENC company).  She is a sustaining member of the Cleveland Association of Paralegals and is currently serving on the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association Green Initiative Committee, the Affiliate Committee, and is Chair of the Follow-Up Committee for the National Network of Reporting Companies (NNRC).

FAQ – What is Videoconferencing?

FAQ – What is Videoconferencing?

Many who are new to the arena of law wonder, what is videoconferencing?  Videoconferencing, also called video teleconferencing (VTC) is a method of taking a deposition when parties are in different locations.  Both parties are connected with high-tech sound and audio equipment.  Through today’s technology, we can connect more than just 2 parties, through “bridging” we can connect many parties together without anyone getting a security pat-down from the TSA.  For the deposition, a court reporter can be at basically any location to record the testimony with the agreement of all parties.  Although many services are technically free, they are usually highly insecure and sometimes very unreliable.  If you have any legal proceedings or depositions that need to be done via videoconferencing, a secure, monitored line of communication is always recommended.  Click here to see what happened during an extremely high-profile case IN the courtroom!  That was definitely embarrassing to counsel.  With the digital security breaches happening daily, it is very important to keep your client safe. At Cady Reporting our famous scheduler, Lori Puchalski has connected parties from down the street to around the world.  We even took a deposition where Lori and the court reporter came in at 2:30 a.m. for a videoconference connected to the Philippines!  Lori works hard to find the closest and most convenient locations for all parties.  Not every firm has the scheduling power of Cady Reporting, especially when it comes to videoconferencing for depositions. Take advantage of the power of Cady to do the least work and get the best result – literally working smarter, not harder. To read more about why you should...
