How To Schedule A Service Efficiently
One of the keys to getting your court reporter or videographer booked on short notice is making sure to clarify every possible detail about your deposition during the initial booking. NNRC is proud to offer court reporters, remote depositions, legal videographers and trial support across our national and global network. Our team prides itself on its speed, efficiency and quality.
Recently we spoke to our court reporting and videography staff about scheduling a service on short notice. Here is what they recommend:
Get the Details Right
Avoid typos, double-check spellings of names, locations, phone numbers, emails and case names. These little details will help expedite your booking and make for less back and forth communication that can often take time away from preparation for your deposition or case.
List All Tech Requirements
Be sure to make clear the exact technology requirements your deposition or conference will need. This means thinking about everything from video and audio transcripts to the right size room and the proper location for your deposition. By making sure to clearly state your equipment needs at the time of the booking you ensure a smoother deposition and a better record of the proceedings. For example, if you need more than one reporter or more than one camera, it is best to speak with your court reporting firm at the time of booking.
One of the issues court reporting firms sometimes have with law firms is difficulty in returning emails and phone calls when there is a special need or a question. Our team recommends returning all correspondences with clear answers in writing within an hour or sooner, particularly when there is a service scheduled for less than 72 hours away. This will help ensure your court reporting and legal videography team has everything you need for a successful deposition.
Schedule with Your Smartphone
In 2022, booking a litigation support service has never been faster or easier. You can call or email to book a service, of course, but you can also take an easier route and book anywhere at any time with our online scheduling form. This form is mobile-friendly, easily accessible, and can be completed in a matter of minutes.

Law Firms Working from Home
Working from home has become the new normal for every professional who has the ability to do so. While some might think that an office door closing means the business is closed, that is not the case in the slightest. Businesses that once had physical locations are now operating remotely from home offices or dining room tables– even law firms.
The course of law doesn’t come to a stop just because of a global crisis. In fact, the current situation may make some areas of practice may be even more important than previously. Attorneys across the world are doing what they can to keep in contact with their clients while still keeping everyone as safe and healthy as possible in the comfort of their homes.
Emails work for correspondence that doesn’t require an immediate response. Phone calls are fine for two people, but when that number grows to include an entire legal team, it can be difficult to discern who said what.
This is exactly where the NNRC’s remote depositions and videoconferencing services come in handy. With our state-of-the-art technology, everyone can be seen and heard with the utmost clarity. Our service allows you to connect with the same, highly skilled court reporting professionals without leaving the safety your home.
