In the courtroom setting there are many players. Some of these are front and center, such as the lawyers, plaintiffs, jury, and judge. Other players are behind the scenes, making sure the rest of the team has what they need to successfully complete their requirements. Some of these players are the litigation support specialists. Their work enables the lawyer to have what they need, when they need it. They are an invaluable asset to attorneys, and to the courtroom in general.
Litigation specialists use today’s technology to provide case materials to the attorneys and the court in a way that they are easily presented. Their job is to organize the materials and inspect the information so what is presented is accurate and applicable to the case the attorney is working on. Litigation support services free up the time of the lawyer so other areas of the case can be focused on. A good litigation support company will be with the attorney for the entire process, from the beginning -prior to actual court proceedings – to the completion of the court proceedings. They will often be with the attorney while all the final details are worked out. These details often include looking over the court proceedings to determine whether or not an appeal is necessary or can be made. They may also include working through the final documentation to ensure the final word of the court is met and delivered. Basically, if you walk away from a completed court hearing and your client is being required to pay a certain amount in damages for a civil lawsuit, the litigation specialists may continue working with the case until all the loose ends are tied up.
Litigation Specialists Embrace Technology
With today’s technology, your litigation team will be more effective if they’ve embraced the software and technology that enables them to bring your information to the table in an organized, concise manner. These jobs are often done by people with backgrounds in the legal or technological field, though neither of these backgrounds are required for a litigation specialist to be an effective asset. The specialists that are best able to deliver these services are those who have the training and ability to rapidly sort through all of the necessary information to deliver exactly what the attorney needs. Through our litigation support team you will receive electronic transcripts in multiple formats. Depositions and exhibits are also available on CD. In addition, transcripts can be delivered by email and compressed transcripts can be delivered in an FTP file.
