From the President

Hello,

In case you’ve not tried it yet, let me remind you about our web conferencing service. This service enables you to conduct depositions remotely from the convenience of a laptop, desktop, or a mobile device in your own office.

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 the next time you are unable to travel to your deposition! 

Best regards,
Sheila Atkinson-Baker

I really love how it makes me far smarter and skilled than I really am.

Buying ediscovery services is a lot like buying a car — when you walk away from the deal, you want to be happy with what you paid and the quality you received for the price. Anything less leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth and many generalizations about car dealers (or ediscovery service providers) that you feel fine sharing with your compatriots.
