Do Lawyers Know the Value of Court Reporters?

Court reporters are valuable assets in the courtroom, especially during a trial. Court officials rely on a court reporter’s ability to report accurately and without bias.  Generally, lawyers benefit the most from the work of court reporters because lawyers know they can rely on their accurate transcripts.


Here are a few ways lawyers can depend upon a court reporter:


Reporters are professional

Lawyers are responsible for their relationships with clients and this can be strained when disputes arise during trials. A court reporter’s role mentally prepares them to remain in a calm and alert state to transcribe with accuracy when emotions in the courtroom are running high.


Delivering on time

Court reporters work under pressure because in most cases, a client is awaiting the final transcript.  Understandably, transcripts need to be delivered as soon as possible because clients have important deadlines to meet.


Being tech-savvy

Lately, technology has played an integral part in the modern examination and trial process. Lawyers can rely on court reporters to support them technologically by providing transcripts in various formats or translations. In addition, reporters can help with real-time examinations for discovery through live streaming.


Keeping it clear

Each trial is of utmost importance to the client and their lawyers. Court reporters understand this and work towards providing an accurate transcript. Court reporters are trained to type quickly, listen attentively and remain dispassionate to produce a clean record of the proceeding. Taking all this into consideration, lawyers have always held court reporters in high regard because they remain emotionally unbiased in their job and provide the necessary facts..
