CLIENT SERVICES

Daily & Expedited Transcripts

Our normal delivery for all transcripts is 10 business days. Expedited delivery is available from same day to 7 business day turnaround.  Rough draft ASCIIs also available upon request typically within 1 to 2 business days.

Realtime Services

This service is available upon request with advanced notice.

Interpreters

If you are in need of an interpreter, we can arrange for one to be present for the deposition. You can request an interpreter when scheduling your deposition.

Deposition Suites

Our deposition suites overlooking downtown Napa come free of charge with the use of our reporters. We also offer high-speed internet, refreshments, coffee, tea, and water at no charge for your comfort and enjoyment. 

E-Transcript, Word Indexing & Condensed 

We will provide accurate, high-quality transcripts directly to your email.  With our Supporting Media Bundle, we provide you with the transcript in both 

full-sized and condensed formats, word index, and scanned exhibits.  (CDs are also available upon request.)  

Videographers

We have videographers available upon request.

Depositions can be recorded in digital or analog formats and synced with the transcript

Document Repository 

We know masses of paperwork involved in your job can be overwhelming, but we can maintain your documents for you.  Our services include creating daily deposition exhibit binders and indexes for all attorneys.  

We also offer E-Transcripts.  What is an E-Transcript™?

E-Transcript is an electronic means of receiving your transcript, either on CD or by e-mail.  Unlike getting an ASCII, E-Transcript has the program already built in so there is no additional software to buy and install.

Hyperlinked word index and transcript allows you to rapidly move within the index to access specifics within the transcript or vice versa.

  • Click on a word within the index.

  • Click on page and line numbers in the index.

  • Search a word using the Find button or CTRL-F.

  • “Previous” and “Next” buttons find other instances.

 

Customize your printing options instead of tearing apart a transcript when you need to copy some of the pages:

  • Print out your own full-sized or condensed transcripts.

  • Indicate the number of transcript pages on a sheet.

  • Print the notes section or not.

  • Print the questions and/or answers in bold.

  • How many columns do you want in the word index?

  • And more

 

Synchronized exhibits allow these same features between transcript, exhibit, and index. This feature is ordered in addition to an E-Transcript, so please contact our office for more information!
