They Said WHAT? Casamo & Associates Verbatim Transcripts Capture Every Weird and Important Detail of Your Depositions and Trials
For many of our clients—typically attorneys—the answer to the common question, “What do you do for a living?” elicits awe and wonder. Many people have grandiose visions of what attorneys do, picturing thrilling murder trials, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington-esque soliloquies, and heart-pounding depositions. Most lawyers chuckle at the assumption that their job is all thrills and adventure, and may or may not share with inquiring minds the drudgery and paperwork that is just as common.
For court reporters, the opposite is usually true. People assume that our job is typing silently in the corner of the room, and then returning to our office to type transcripts silently until we retire to our homes at the end of the day (presumably to type some more). While our job does include a lot of typing, it is far from a bore—in fact, it’s our passion!
What Makes Our Job So Exciting? You Do!
We’ve discussed some of the most important qualities of a court reporter, including our most important standards of confidentiality and impartiality, so clearly we can’t spill the details of who or what we’re writing about. What we can share, however, is that working in the same room as both seasoned and brand new up-and-coming attorneys allows us to bear witness to some truly remarkable skills.
Sitting in the corner of the room during your deposition or at the front of the courtroom during your important trial, we capture every word as it happens, and recreate the proceedings in painstaking detail in our transcripts. Many times—especially for newer attorneys—we are able to document details and conversational nuances that the attorneys themselves were unaware happened.
At the end of the day, we pride ourselves on providing attorneys and other clients with a detailed, accurate account of what may be the most important day of their careers—that’s why we take our duties so seriously.
If you are in need of precise, professional transcripts of your legal proceedings, Casamo & Associates can put their 25 years of experience to work for you. Call us today to learn more about our competitive rates and services—we look forward to working with you soon!
