Professionals who carry out court deposition services are also known as court reporters. As implied by their name, court reporters keep a record of everything that happens at court through mediums such as videography, transcripts, interpretations in different languages and many more. It is important to note that not all court reporters have the same skill set, and that the skills and knowledge of a court reporter can largely influence how a case is presented.
Introduction to Deposition Services
There are two main types of court reporters in the United States. Official court reporters are employed by the judges or the court, whereas independent court reporters are deployed to courts on a contractual basis. Independent court reporters can be sole practitioners or be employed by a process serving firm. Court reporters must hold a nationally recognized certification on top of being knowledgeable in the jargon used by doctors and lawyers as well as have a firm understanding of technology. Several methods can be used in the process of deposition, from traditional pen and paper note taking to tape recording.
