LiveDeposition always takes into consideration the needs of its clients, tailoring its program features to the specific needs desired by legal professionals. After using similar services, I don’t think any program will ever measure up to LiveDeposition.

Ruffin Consulting, Inc., a Wilson, North Carolina based Court Reporting firm, recently began offering their clients an alternative way to attend out-of-state litigation proceedings through RemoteRealtime™, a web-based video conferencing and realtime streaming software developed by LiveDeposition. Today, Ruffin Consulting, Inc. announced a significant six month increase in new client acquisition and retention because of this offering.    

LiveDeposition is a leading provider of local and cloud-based realtime streaming solutions for the legal industry. Their RemoteRealtime™ solution provides attorneys and other legal professionals with a method to forego travel typically involved with out-of-area litigation proceedings by providing a platform to attend remotely using any desktop computer or laptop computer, as well as by using an iPad, iPhone, Android enabled Smartphone or Tablet or the Kindle Fire.

Although located in North Carolina, Ruffin Consulting, Inc. provides court reporting, videography, interpretation, transcription and translation services to clients on a nationwide level. When asked why LiveDeposition was chosen over other traditional video conferencing services, Bonnie Ruffin, President of Ruffin Consulting, Inc., stated, “We selected LiveDeposition because it was specifically designed for use in the legal field. The solutions we implemented in the past for our remote deposition needs were very limited in terms of customer support and features we could offer to our clients.”

LiveDeposition’s RemoteRealtime™ product offers far more than what one would find using a typical video conferencing solution. In addition to video and audio, RemoteRealtime™ allows court reporters to simultaneously stream their Realtime transcript text to attorneys around the world. Bonnie Ruffin went on to say, “LiveDeposition always takes into consideration the needs of its clients, tailoring its program features to the specific needs desired by legal professionals. After using similar services, I don’t think any program will ever measure up to LiveDeposition. LiveDeposition is where it’s at.”

Recently Ruffin Consulting, Inc. was fortunate enough to provide court reporting services to both plaintiff and defense counsel in several high profile cases where most of the expert witnesses resided in different locations in the United States and Canada. LiveDeposition played an integral role in about two-thirds of the depositions related to these cases, saving the participating attorneys time and money as well as allowing Ruffin Consulting, Inc. to retain work that could have been farmed out to other reporting firms across the country.

As to the specific implementation and usage of LiveDeposition during these cases, Ms. Ruffin explained, “We have taken full advantage of the ability to show multiple video feeds. We offer three camera views during our Live Depositions. The first camera features the witness, the second camera is set to show the entire room so attorneys can see everyone during the deposition; and the third camera we use is a high-definition USB document camera. The document camera, recommended by LiveDeposition, allows for exhibits to be projected and streamed to off-site attendees as the exhibits are being introduced into evidence at the location of the deposition. This set-up is the next best thing to being present at the deposition location.”

Attorneys that participated in these depositions commented:

"We recently used Ruffin Consulting to conduct numerous out-of-state depositions of defense experts in a very complex, document intensive case. We were beyond pleased with how seamless the LiveDeposition technology worked for us, and appreciate the commitment Bonnie and her team showed in their dedication to ensuring a flawless virtual experience. If you are an attorney trying to minimize costs and reduce time out of the office, while still maintaining the ability to get the job done, Ruffin Consulting is the call you need to make." Thomas Henson of HensonFuerst, P.A.

"We have benefited tremendously from Bonnie Ruffin’s expertise in court reporting for many years. Recently, Bonnie introduced us to the virtual technology of LiveDeposition. Our case presented extensive nationwide depositions requiring heavy document management. Documents were used seamlessly and effortlessly. When the depositions concluded, the defense lawyers faced taxi cabs, airport check-ins and long flights to return home while we began other productive casework. The net result was that we experienced the ‘live witness’ without the travel expense and down time away from our office. This technology is for real and you will never go back to jet-hopping after you try it. The best part was that the lawyers were also on camera during the deposition and this kept everyone honest. I highly recommend that you give the Ruffin team the same opportunity to serve you. I guarantee you’ll give up the old school way of traveling to depositions forever." Robert Zaytoun of Zaytoun Law Firm, PLLC
