Legal video deposition services provided by Litigation Services can be a powerful tool during trials, capturing attention in a way that reading from transcripts simply can’t provide.
A videotaped deposition also offers law firms and attorneys benefits during the trial preparation stage. Using a certified legal video specialist can help firms produce useful, impactful testimony with the necessary integrity and professionalism demanded by the rules of civil procedure.
Legal Video Services for Your Case
A legal video deposition demonstrates the direct impact of events on a person’s life as a result of his or her experiences and injuries. Of course, any type of deposition should always present the witness’s own words. However, when jurors and judges are able to actually see and hear the witness recounting events in a video testimony, the impact can be more persuasive than testimony read from a transcript.
When preparing their witnesses, firms using legal video depositions will get to see how clients will perform during the trial, providing an opportunity for more guidance and preparation beforehand. On the flipside, law firms using video deposition testimony may also, unwittingly, be forcing opposing counsel to prepare witnesses differently. When more than just witnesses’ words will be on display, attorneys need to be mindful of delays in responding, facial expressions and emotional cues that simply don’t translate in a printed transcript.
Video depositions also record opposing counsel’s actions and objections in context, which can be more impactful during a trial; and can force more professional and courteous behavior toward witnesses being deposed.
Video Depositions From Litigation Services
Creating meaningful, effective deposition videos is about more than simply turning on a video camera and pointing it at the witness being deposed.
At Litigation Services, we understand the importance of leveraging the most current technology and using video editing techniques to make an impact. Attorneys and law firms can also rest assured that our certified legal video specialists understand the rules of civil procedure.
In addition to recording depositions, our videographers are experienced in capturing demonstrative video evidence; filming countless hours of hazmat-related footage for playback within the courtroom.
We also make it simple for clients by creating a digital version of the legal video deposition transcript. We synchronize the transcript text with the video and store the videos of proceedings in our centralized, electronic repository — providing clients with 24/7 access. This allows for the ability to search, annotate and index footage to highlight and evaluate critical testimony.
