YesLaw, the leading technology service for deposition content delivery, has announced its latest innovation for the legal industry: YesLaw Online, a cloud-based mobile file sharing and sync platform that allows attorneys to view, search within and edit video depositions, transcripts and exhibits (evidence) with ease.

YesLaw software has become the industry standard for providing deposition video on DVD. It enables attorneys and other legal professionals to easily review video depositions, identify key testimony, and create and export video clips for presentation at trial, mediation and settlement.

YesLaw Online solves a major pain point for the legal industry: litigation documents and files are often too large to email and take too long to transfer. By using YesLaw Online, court reporters can now upload depositions and exhibits easily into the cloud, where attorneys can view them using iPhone, Android, Blackberry, tablet and desktop devices. Security is of utmost concern to YesLaw; the company provides a protected environment with 128-bit encrypted web communications.

Unlike other services requiring the user to download files and manually sift through footage, YesLaw Online allows users to store, view, search and share transcripts and their accompanying videos without having to worry about the proper software or licenses.

The company created its service in response to the colossal amounts of deposition videos it received from attorneys who would pay up to $350 per hour of testimony for synchronized video. The inadequate supply of such services inspired YesLaw to put YesVideo’s large conversion facilities and technology to use—and in effect brought down the price for the service substantially. Users are now charged on average about $75 per hour of digitized testimonial footage, and YesLaw handles approximately 750 hours of deposition footage per day.

Greg Ayres, Chief Operating Officer of YesLaw, describes how this launch will affect the legal industry: “YesLaw Online is changing how court reporters and attorneys do their work. It’s like Google Docs on steroids – not only can your entire team join the folder, view documents, and make edits, but it also enables video viewing, editing and cutting, plus many other time-saving features that our competitors don’t have.”

Some key features of YesLaw Online include:

·     PDF format for editing transcripts

o YesLaw also creates transcripts that seamlessly link hyperlinks to PDF-formatted exhibit files. YesLaw PDF transcripts allow attorneys can add annotations, highlights and/or apply Bates stamps without breaking the digital certification. A simple click of the hyperlinked exhibit reference opens the exhibit file for viewing. YesLaw PDF transcripts provide more features are smaller than the competition’s, as a small file size is best for electronic delivery especially for mobile devices.

·     Modern Web Interface

o Optimized for mobile devices, this interface includes additional video types for iOS, a larger control display and drag-and-drop tools for a multi-platform, multi-browser compatible service

·     Editing Features

o Litigation attorneys and reporters can view, highlight, mark-up, annotate or redact hundreds of document formats—even without the application that created the original document

·     Discussion Forums

o Organize data and collaborate with others using online discussion forums including drag-and-drop tools to imbed hyperlinks to video deposition references, exhibit documents, edited video clips and web links to other legal resources

“We've been using the YesLaw technology to create both synchronized video depositions and PDF transcripts for our clients. We have found the YesLaw products to be very user friendly, requiring very little training for our staff,” says Jo Ann Betler, co-owner of Betler’s Reporting & Legal Video Services, LLC. Co-owner Gene Betler commented, “We're looking forward to using their new cloud-based video platform. We have found that having an affordable, secure, reliable, offsite repository for our work products is priceless.”

To date, YesLaw Online is hosting over fifty thousand hours of video depositions and adding fifteen thousand new deposition transcripts per month to their new online repository technology.
