Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
In the legal industry time is money and one of the biggest time consumers for legal teams are depositions. Although attending and participating in a deposition is an essential component to the litigation process, being physically present at a deposition is no longer required. With the help of LiveDeposition.com's web-based streaming deposition solution, McDaniel Court Reporting & Video Conferencing, located in San Luis Obispo, California has proven this to be true.
Recently McDaniel Court Reporting utilized the LiveDeposition.com service to assist in streaming realtime audio, video and text for a deposition which had multiple attendees located across the state of California. For this deposition, the attorney was at his office in San Francisco, California, while the witness, court reporter and opposing counsel were at a business center in Paso Robles, California. In this particular case, the witness had wanted to stay local as his wife had just given birth and he did not want to leave the area to give his testimony.
LiveDeposition.com makes it simple for court reporters and court reporting agencies to stream realtime depositions. According to Sharon McDaniel, Owner of McDaniel Court Reporting and Video Conferencing, “Our court reporter utilized a webcam attached to her laptop computer, which enabled our client in San Francisco, California to both question the witness and view the witness and his demeanor. The deposition lasted for approximately three hours and I was able to monitor the proceedings from my office in San Luis Obispo, without physically being at the deposition site.”
At the conclusion of the deposition, all of the parties, including the court reporter, discussed how easy it was to use LiveDeposition.com. McDaniel went on to say “Our client was especially pleased since all he had to do to attend the deposition was click on a link in an email he received. He saved himself the time and expense of traveling to Paso Robles, which is about 200 miles and a four-hour drive from his office.”
