Differences Between Remote and In-Person Depositions

No matter where in the world you are, depositions serve the same purpose: to gather a complete profile of facts and testimonies regarding an attorney’s current case. Court reporters are present to record the questions and answers as they transpire in order to create a transcript that attorneys can use for analysis. While not necessary to the legal process, they are a highly valuable step to take.

Given our current global health crisis, many attorneys are uncertain what will happen with their case. Through the help of your favorite Cleveland court reporters, your case can continue its progress as usual with a remote deposition. Learn about the key differences between remote and in-person depositions below
