The nation’s capital is a hotbed of political jockeying and careerism. When it comes to the business of politics, no place in the USA matches Washington D.C. for an influx of talent, ambition and diversity of professionals from all over the world. The same may be said about the legal community in the nation’s capital. One of the challenges and benefits of being situated in the political center of the country for court reporting and law firms is the range of case types and clients.
Baltimore court reporters such as Gore Brothers Reporting, with offices in Baltimore, Towson, and Washington DC, must offer services that include a knowledge of various of areas of practice and law firms from two different states and the DC area. Versatility remains the key.
Law firms in the Baltimore DC Beltway are often handling international cases as well. The range of languages, areas of practice and locations means a court reporting firm must be able to provide services such as interpreting, document transcription that is digitally based, and multiple locations.
The challenges for small and medium-sized independent court reporting companies are numerous, according to Joe Grabowski, Founder and President of Gore Brothers:
“We have found that few firms can carry caseloads that include depositions of multiple languages and linguistic variation within a certain area of practice. One of the keys to providing excellent services to law offices in our nation’s capital is the ability to provide new technologies like ultra high speed wifi and videoconferencing across multiple platforms and turn around digital transcripts as soon as possible.”
With many firms specializing in international law, political cases that emphasize corporate and business law, and other fields related to the political dynamism of Baltimore and Washington D.C. it becomes paramount to offer versatility and a history of precision in the tradecraft known as court reporting.
