From the President

Do you know the difference between a translator and an interpreter? As Language Scientific explains, “The difference between interpreting and translation is only the difference in the medium: the interpreter translates orally, while a translator interprets written text.”

Because we provide services for depositions, we have a large network of interpreters at your disposal at any time.  Yes, at any time!  Our interpreters are very experienced and accredited, and our network includes interpreters for over 140 languages worldwide.

Read what some of our clients have said:

“We love Atkinson-Baker!  You are always 110 percent reliable.  I even asked for an interpreter at 4:00 p.m. the day before a deposition, and you guys were able to pull it off!  Atkinson-Baker is our No. 1 pick for services.  There is no need for us to ever look elsewhere.  Thank you ALL for what you do for us!” Sacramento, CA

“I commend all those who worked diligently to get us an interpreter late yesterday afternoon at the drop of a hat.  I learned of the need just yesterday late afternoon, jumped on the phone to Atkinson-Baker, and was assisted immediately.  Please express my thanks to your team!”
Scottsdale, AZ

Please schedule with us any time.  We’re here to help!

Best regards,
Sheila Atkinson-Baker

State Court Judges’ Perspective on E-Discovery

By Sharon D. Nelson and John W. Simek

We recently had the pleasure of serving on a Fairfax Bar Association CLE faculty which included Circuit Court Chief Judge Dennis Smith and Circuit Court Judges John Tran and Jane Roush. Their panel offering their insights on e-discovery in state courts was warmly received.

Judge Smith got the ball rolling by talking about the difference between digital immigrants and digital natives, terms coined more than a decade ago by author, educator, and lecturer Marc Prensky.
