Legal Transcription Services

Legal transcription services present a unique set of challenges.

Recordings often contain sensitive, personal, and highly confidential material

Frequently, pressing deadlines for attorneys and courts demand quick turnarounds. And, as the recorded material is nearly always critical and life-effective, there is no room for any compromise with accuracy.

What are legal transcription services used for?

Legal transcription services are used by professionals that require quality transcripts (in a timely manner) for:

  • general correspondence and memos
  • attorney dictation
  • deposition transcripts and recorded statements
  • medical-legal reports and independent medical exams
  • workers’ compensation transcription
  • legal agreements and contracts
  • wills and trust documents
  • videotaped depositions or interviews
  • surveillance and investigate reports
  • telephone hearings

And more.
