Court Reporters: The Unsung Heroes of the Courtroom

Credit: Davila Civil Process LLC

Court reporters are the unsung heroes of the courtroom. The media loves to portray lawyers speaking in dramatic absolutes and waving their arms while the judge bangs their gavel to demand order in the court. While this is something that seldom happens, even if it did, what happens when attorneys, the jury, and the judge pack up for the day? How do they remember what exactly happened accurately and honestly?

They turn to their transcripts. Attorneys study what was said to help shape their case. Judges need the transcript to make a fair decision. And where do they get these transcripts? From their court reporters.

The court reporters at Beovich, Walter, & Friend (BWF) are the unsung heroes of Portland, Oregon. Since 1957, BWF has cemented themselves with a reputation of excellence, state-of-the-art equipment, and leading services. When attorneys need a Portland court reporter, BWF is the firm that they turn to.

BWF Reporters has kept their doors open for 60 years by offering diverse litigation services for a number of different legal fields. Court reporting is just the beginning. They also offer realtime reporting, internet streaming, videography, videoconferencing, tape and CD transcription, and more. Sometimes, accidents happen, or a particularly important case needs a transcript as soon as possible. To help meet these needs, BWF offers expedited transcripts, and even same-day drafts. BWF’s areas of practice cover personal injury law, copyright law, immigration law, and a number of other fields, so that just about any law professional can come to BWF, request a service, and get exactly the help they need.

Perhaps the aspect of business that truly separates BWF from the rest is their promise of “transparent billing.” With their itemized invoices, clients know exactly what they’re being charged and why. This open and honest business plan helps build clients’ trust, which is one of the most important factors of running a reporting firm, and really, any type of business.

Booking a service with BWF is easy. Upon arriving to the website, all a potential or returning client has to do is select “schedule a service,” fill out a form with contact information and information on the case, and submit the request. The form is easy to understand and fill out. BWF understands that sometimes, a service is needed quickly, so if a client needs to schedule a reporter or litigation service within two days, all they have to do is call (503) 228-7201. Once scheduled, attorneys and paralegals can be confident that their case is in good hands.

The firm has even adapted to the current global pandemic. In order to keep people at home while continuing the course of law, BWF proudly offers remote depositions. They utilize the best tech in the business to make sure everyone is connected over a secure server and easily heard. It is just one of the many ways BWF goes above and beyond to serve their clients.

(Miami, Florida) November 18, 2020

Laws Reporting is pleased to announce their mediation services. The objective of mediation is to settle a case in a way that all parties are satisfied before it reaches trial. It involves the parties at odd, and an impartial, third party mediator. These professionals are unbiased and can help the parties work together to eliminate some of the problems between them.

The Miami court reporting firm offers mediation because they know how expensive lawsuits can be. The longer a lawsuit is drawn out, the more money both parties are forced to shell out.

National Court Reporting Firms is on Track to Build New Legal Directory

For a busy attorney or paralegal, saving time is absolutely crucial. Between their multitude of cases, paperwork, and personal lives the last thing a legal professional wants to think about is finding a court reporting or litigation service that can fulfill all their needs. In the age of the internet, everyone has a website, and looks can be deceiving. Two websites can have nearly identical looks and interface, yet one could be a phenomenal litigation firm, while the other could absolutely horrible.

So how can one tell the difference between the good, the bad, and the ugly?

National Court Reporting Firms is a publication dedicated to bringing those in the litigation field the most up-to-date news on court reporters and the legal world. In the recent weeks, however, the website has been taking on a new endeavor: creating a comprehensive, new directory of court reporters based on state.

The directory is designed to help lawyers find a court reporting professional they know they can count on in their area.

Each state has a link to one (or more) court reporting firm that will go above and beyond to help their clients. The link directs potential clients to a summary of the firm, giving them a rough idea of services and positive qualities the firm possesses. From that point, potential clients can decide if they want to move forward and book with the firm.

Scottsdale, Arizona: A Legal Community on the Cutting Edge of Technology

Two things often come to mind when someone mentions Arizona: Phoenix, and deserts. When one takes a moment to learn a little about one of the gems of the west, they quickly learn that Arizona has so much more to offer. There are beautiful mountains, rivers, and forests to explore. There are a number of unique metropolitan areas to immerse oneself in. Scottsdale has it all.

Just east of Phoenix, Scottsdale is bordered by the Tonto National Forest, the McDowell Mountains, and the Salt River. The city itself is rich with culture—Old Town Scottsdale is packed full with restaurants, retail, art galleries, and music experiences. The city has a little something for everyone. One can feed their nature-side by going for a hike in the morning, and then tend to their need for good food by stopping at one of Scottsdale’s many restaurants at night.

With such a variety of entertainment and occupations, Scottsdale is more than a hub for visitors—it is a hub for legal professionals. Businesses need employment and labor law services. The natural parks need environmental and natural resources law. No matter what area of practice, the legal professionals in Scottsdale will deliver.

Law firms in Scottsdale consistently rank high in reviews. The Schill Law Group, the Law Offices of Shane L. Harvard, and Provident Law all rank over four stars on Google reviews. The local bar association does everything in their power to ensure attorneys, paralegals, and their clients are happy.  There are a number of court reporting firms in Scottsdale that offer great services, but none of them preform quite like Coash & Coash. What sets them apart from the rest? Their quality of technology.

These talented court reporters know just how important utilizing the best technology available in the world of litigation is to their clients. The staff at Coash & Coash realized that they could not simply rely on their accurate reporting, efficient service, and quality customer service. Attorneys cannot waste time waiting for outdated stenographs—or in the case of videography, outdated cameras—to preform the way they should. They knew they had to provide clients with the best of the best in legal technology.
