This month, our feature article talks about how to best schedule and plan for out-of-town depositions – which, if not planned properly, can disrupt the flow of the litigation process of any one case. The article also references specific out-of-town depositions tips that we think you will find useful both in the planning and execution stages.
Court reporters, videographers and interpreters can be immediately scheduled all at once in convenient locations in any city nationwide. As clients realize how much time we can save them, out-of-town scheduling has become one of the fastest growing areas of our business, and we hope that you continue to utilize our services in this way.
As always, we welcome your suggestions and comments and we would like to share articles you have written with our readers, as well.
Out-of-Town Depositions Made Easy
By Barbara Lynch, Staff Writer
A Reporter for Depositions in Every Nook and Cranny
Location. Location. Location. We’re used to hearing this when people talk about what makes a restaurant successful. When it comes to depositions, it’s just as imperative.
One of the questions clients frequently ask is whether or not we can get them a reporter in a particular town – even if it’s way off the beaten path. And our answer is always a confident “Yes!”
So, when an attorney needed a reporter in Gardiner, Montana, we arranged it, no problem. In case you’ve never been there, Gardiner and its 851 residents are tucked away in Montana’s Gallatin Wilderness about 60 miles upstream of Livingston’s 6,851 residents along the original entrance of Yellowstone National Park.
Gardiner and Livingston, despite their remoteness and tiny size, are two of the 7,394 cities throughout the US and over 15 other countries where we have reported more than 413,163 depositions over the last two decades.
Even if there are depositions in London, CA (pop. 1,848), London, Ontario (pop. 352,395), or London, England (pop. 7,512,400), all on the same day, we can easily get reporters there within a few hours. Sheila Atkinson-Baker pointed this out in an article she wrote over ten years ago when Atkinson-Baker was one of the first to offer last-minute reporters in remote locations.
