There’s a new witness that needs to be deposed…
You have to call the opposing counsel and find out:
- Where are they? Do they need to travel?
- When are they available? How long will they be available for?
- Does that match up with the deposing attorney’s schedule?
What about the witness?
- What is their availability?
- Will everyone have to travel to them?
- If you have to arrange travel… Wait, let’s not think about that unless we have to.
So there is an agreeable time that isn’t months away, perfect. What now?
A videographer? Easy you’ve used them before and they can work with your firm’s schedule.
What about the court reporter? Are they available that day? What if you have to reschedule? If that happens you’ll have to do this all over again.
While that may be a bit of a dramatization it certainly speaks some truth when it comes to scheduling a deposition. Some have said that it’s harder than herding cats, others have said worse in fewer words. Ultimately the point came across;
Scheduling a deposition can be a pain.
The vTestify team created a tool that Increases Access to Justice, eliminates unnecessary travel, and creates better video evidence, all while greatly improving the operation of scheduling a deposition. The remote nature of the tool allows all parties to attend from almost any location. Now the attorneys, witnesses, and every other party have greater availability in their schedule, especially when travel is traditionally required. Plus, there isn’t a need for a videographer or a court reporter.
Whether you’re a lawyer, paralegal, or legal assistant, vTestify eliminates much of the pain that comes from scheduling and frees up your time. Instead of playing phone tag and confirming schedules you have more time to work on your core functions.
Do you see this as an operational improvement or something that simplifies your firm’s day today?
