Remote Deposition Resources


Overnight, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the landscape of the legal industry. With the sudden shift to remote work, in-person activities such as depositions are now being conducted almost exclusively in virtual settings – and likely will be for the foreseeable future.

Explore the resources below to make your remote depositions as seamless as possible.

The adoption of remote deposition formats has resulted in unanticipated benefits for many litigators and clients. With tools and functionality that mirror in-person proceedings including breakout rooms, on-screen annotations and realtime exhibit sharing, remote depositions allow everyone to participate in the deposition remotely and interact as if they were in the same room. Here are some of the growing benefits that remote depositions offer both attorneys and clients:

  • Maximize efficiency for all parties by facilitating or taking depositions from your home or office
  • Easy, flexible scheduling with nationwide coverage
  • Reduced travel time and expense for attorneys and clients
  • Robust security including encrypted communications

Getting Started Checklist

One Day Prior to Deposition:

  • Test equipment and connection at least 24 hours before the deposition
  • Make sure you have a webcam-equipped device and a strong Internet connection
  • We also recommend testing your audio to identify which option provides optimal audio quality

Day of Deposition

  • Connect at your remote location at least 15-20 minutes before the deposition begins
  • Make sure exhibits are accessible on your device

Other Considerations

  • Communicate platform requirements with U.S. Legal Support when scheduling your deposition. Do you need a videographer? Do you require breakout rooms? Will you need a realtime feed?
  • Identify your exhibit sharing needs so we can help determine which solution is right for you: U.S. Legal Support Client Exhibit Drop or InstantExhibit+™
