Atlanta Court Reporting – Joining the “Family Business”, the Janice Baker Firm.

Hello, I’m Janna Szeto with Janice S. Baker & Associates. I handle all of the production and sales for the firm. I just wanted to take the time to jot down a few things I’ve learned along the way in the court reporting business. So I will go first and in the weeks to come you will hear from Rich, Janice, Karen and even the amazing court reporters that are a part of this successful family-owned court reporting operation.  

Four years ago, I joined my family business full-time as the office manager handling all matters of production and disposition scheduling. My family graciously took me in after being burned out by a hard 15-year stint in the grueling profession of running emergency shelters and homeless prevention agencies. Seizing the opportunity, I thought nothing could be as difficult as trying to find a place for a person to sleep or prepare a fifty-page federal grant proposal in a month’s time. I was determined to learn this business on my own with limited input from anyone.

As the initial weeks progressed, I would get frustrated with the process of wondering why reporters were not grateful to take a hearing at 5:30pm in downtown Atlanta on a Friday afternoon or equally as happy to hear me inquire about their availability for the same day three times over a two-day period. I didn’t understand why reporters and clients preferred talking with my brother and mother. Sure, they were certified court reporters with fifty years of experience between them but I was a professional too. I knew how to work with subcontractors, huge companies, and create a ton of services that were accessible to the masses. Wringing my hands, I looked to Rich one afternoon and complained how I didn’t understand the business. Exasperated I said,

 “This business should be run like a temp agency where employers were happy to have a solution to their hiring needs and employees should be happy to have a job.”

Immediately, Rich stopped what he was doing, sighed heavily and explained patiently that I could not continue to fight the principles that the business was founded on. He also gave me a quick education on the differences between an employee and a subcontractor. This was a business built on working with other small business owners. I thought I would pass the same principles along so that you could also know what Janice S. Baker & Associates is all about…

Benefits of Atlanta Realtime Court Reporting

Georgia Attorneys are quickly learning that Atlanta based realtime court reporting services can provide them with the ability to represent their clients with the highest level of accuracy and efficiency possible. When combined with any of the industry’s cutting edge litigation support software, realtime court reporting can provide an almost unfair advantage in many areas of the litigation process. Realtime court reporting is, quite literally, the translation of a court reporter’s transcript into text form as it is being typed. Since the court reporters stenotype machine is directly connected to a computer, there is virtually no delay between the spoken testimony or deposition and the text print out on the attorney’s laptop computer.

There are a number of benefits to using realtime court reporting, with the ability to have immediate access to the deposition transcripts foremost among them. Attorneys can review and highlight portions of testimony and make notes within the realtime transcript on their computer without needing to interrupt the proceedings. Searches for specific words, phrases and other more complicated information can be performed in multiple documents simultaneously. Attorneys can also review the court reporter transcripts in the case for previous or conflicting testimony. An attorney can not only search through the realtime transcripts to easily locate inaccurate or conflicting testimony, but they can create transcript and annotation reports and quickly email them to colleagues or co-counsel for review.

Immediate access to proceedings and rough drafts,  Realtime internet streaming of legal proceedings,  Ability to search and annotate text on the fly,  Same-day utilization in litigation support programs,  Easy accessibility for the hearing-impaired and Adding notes during depositions gives attorneys the ability to quickly create summaries are just a few of the benefits of our metro Atlanta realtime court reporting services.

Some realtime court reporting services even provide the option of a live internet deposition feed. This means that an attorney who is deposing a witness in Atlanta can stream transcripts and legal video feeds directly to co-counsel in another city. In addition to the efficient sharing of information, this can also save your law firm a significant amount of time and travel expenses. In situations where depositions are being provided for several days in a row, an attorney can use realtime court reporting to get a head start on organizing the next day’s depositions.

In the increasingly competitive legal field, it makes sense to utilize any technological advancement that can save you time, save you money, or increase the efficiency with which you perform your duties. With realtime court reporting services from Janice S. Baker & Associates, Atlanta realtime Court Reporting is taken to an entirely new level.

If you are a North Georgia Attorney and never outsourced your deposition location to one of our Metro Atlanta Court Reporter Deposition Suites you could be missing out on billable time.  By keeping your office open for other clients and using our locations you can schedule various depositions from different cases throughout the day in on a tighter schedule.  Schedule Your Deposition HERE
