In litigation, situations arise when words just aren’t enough.
For a variety of reasons, it may be important to see a witness’s facial expression and gestures, or hear their intonation. In those circumstances, attorneys all over the country call on U.S. Legal Support’s videography services.
On paper, the same sentence may be interpreted a dozen different ways, not all of them to your advantage. A video recording of a deposition adds a dimension to the transcript that brings the words to life. Video testimony has more impact and clarity, and communicates nuances that simply cannot be preserved any other way.
As one example, if a witness’s credibility needs to be impeached, video examples of fidgeting, failure to make eye contact or other behavior become plain to see. As another, if a witness is seriously ill, video may preserve details of affliction that a written transcript doesn’t capture.
Whether for pretrial preparation, in lieu of live trial testimony, or for the creation of impeachment clips, video is an essential tool for any legal team. The hallmark of our video work is professionalism. Our team arrives early, handles all the technical details, and without affecting the proceedings, unobtrusively captures everything that takes place. Afterwards, we provide a full suite of postproduction services, including syncing video testimony to a written transcript, all with rapid turnaround and in virtually any format you need.
