Diamond’s president and founding partner, Jane Sackheim, provides tips and advice on how to optimize using our services. Today we include one on how to get the most out of your court reporter.

When using a court reporter for a deposition, there are often terms that are foreign to non-experts. A glossary of terms is very helpful for spelling and helps the court reporter understand the subject matter and spell terms correctly.

For example, if the proceedings will include pharmaceutical material with drug names, you will want those names spelled correctly. Provide a list of the drugs that will be mentioned during the deposition to the court reporter for reference.

If the case involves names of companies or proper names that may not be easily found on Google, that information should be given to the court reporter to ensure that the transcript will have correct spelling. If the case is complex, it would be helpful to give the court reporter a little background information.
