Remote Deposition Solutions

RemoteDepoInstantExhibit Plus

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. With RemoteDepo™ by U.S. Legal Support, everyone can participate in a remote deposition and interact as if they were in the same conference room. With an internet connection and webcam-equipped device, you can communicate in realtime, observe witness body language and seamlessly facilitate questioning.

GETTING STARTED CHECKLIST

  • 1 Day Prior to Deposition:
    • Test equipment and connection at your remote location 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 mins 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: InstantExhibit™, USLS Client Exhibit Drop or InstantExhibit+™
