October 2007

From the President

We understand that you are relied upon to make a large part of the litigation process go smoothly. We also know that with that responsibility comes a potentially high stress level that can carry over into other areas of your life – such as family and health, for example.

Our overall goal is to make your deposition planning stress free and as smooth as possible.  We are here to act as a buffer for you and be your “one stop shopping” of deposition planning.

For over twenty years, firms have counted on us because we are set up to handle any of their deposition needs. Last month, we were recognized as one of the fastest growing private companies in America by Inc. 5,000. This honor confirms that more and more legal professionals are relying on us as we stay in front of the fast-paced world of litigation.

We made a commitment that “The Reporter” would be worthwhile to legal professionals by providing you with articles and resources that will help you be more efficient. This is only the third issue of “The Reporter” and already we are receiving a large amount of positive feedback. As always, we welcome your suggestions and comments.

Best Regards,
Sheila Atkinson-Baker

By Sheila Atkinson-Baker

Managing class actions, and other types of large, complex cases with multiple depositions is a specialty with a handful of firms dominating the landscape. What sets these firms apart is not necessarily their experience, but it’s their depth of personnel and resources.

These firms have the armies of paralegals and support personnel to manage the intricacies of complex litigation and multiple depositions. When solo practitioners land a client for such cases, they normally do the sensible thing and associate with or turn the case over to a firm with the strength needed to carry it through to a successful completion.

After an electrician finished repairing some faulty wiring in an attorney’s home he handed him the the bill.

“Five hundred dollars! For an hour’s work?” cried the attorney, “That’s ridiculous!

I’m an attorney and I don’t even make that much.”

“Funny,” replied the electrician, “when I was an attorney, I didn’t either!”
