Lawyers may get all the press and glamour when it comes to the legal profession but there are many other important professionals involved in winning a case or propelling our legal system. From paralegals to expert witnesses, court reporters and videographers, the array of skills and variables involved in today’s courtroom battles, corporate takeovers and malpractice litigations has become a major industry in our economic world. It is estimated that the legal profession generates over $193 Billion per year.
The court reporting profession in particular is a special niche component for law firms and their cases. Today’s court reporting firms are highly advanced in new technologies ranging from videoconferencing and document transcription to online file repository building and trial presentation. Organizations like the National Network Reporting Company (NNRC) provide a valuable resource for attorneys who travel across their states or across the United States for depositions.
NNRC provides a directory of court reporting firms organized by city and state and includes court reporters in Canada, the United Kingdom and other countries. In addition, NNRC offers 24/7 mobile booking for last-minute depositions and other needs. For a trial attorney trying to settle a case out of court or working against a tight deadline this feature can be invaluable.
NNRC members are among the most accomplished in their profession, with offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Orlando, Chicago, New York, Portland and cities in between. Their range of services and network of court reporters allows the organization to take bookings in the far reaches of the country.
One of the oldest and most trusted national court reporters directory, NNRC also provides an excellent legal news blog on its website along with resources for attorneys in a wide range of areas of practice, from copyright law to medical malpractice and wills and trusts.
