Our physical office is open for live depositions, and we are available for in-person and Zoom court hearings and trials. As of September 1, 2021, videoconference and Zoom remote reporting remain available, returning to their reasonable pre-COVID rates.
Currently, masks are not required in the Marion County Judicial Center, while masks are required in the Golden-Collum Memorial Federal Courthouse if you have not been vaccinated.
When setting your deposition, please contact the office via phone or email to ensure any special accommodations regarding in-person and remote appearance are noted and available for that date.
REPORTERS, NOT RECORDERS The Florida Supreme Court recognizes live stenographic reporters utilizing computer-aided transcription (CAT) as the preferred method of preserving the record and requires that method in Florida's most important cases.
When you see "reporting firms" claiming to use the "most technologically advanced" methods, beware. That's the latest marketing code words for digital recording systems: an untrained employee with a recording device, sending it off for transcription to an unknown employee, who was not present and cannot vouch for the recording itself ... the slowest method of producing a record, with no ability to authenticate in case of errors.
