From the President

Hello,

If you have not yet experienced it, try our web conferencing service the next time you are unable to travel to your deposition. This service allows attorneys to conduct depositions from the convenience of a laptop, desktop, or a mobile device.

The court reporter will set up a web conferencing connection via a communication app. The witness is located at the same location as the court reporter, allowing attorneys to remain at their offices while conducting the deposition.

Features include:
• Improved law firm efficiency due to time saved
• Significant cost savings on travel and equipment
• Great ease of use; special equipment is not required

Try it!

Best regards,
Sheila Atkinson-Baker
