Thirty Minutes Early or You’re Late

That my husband is an attorney makes sense.  If he were a doctor, I might be a nurse.  But my husband is not a doctor, he is a litigator, and as such, he attends depositions regularly, mostly starting at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., but this past week he had a doctor’s deposition set for 5:00 p.m.  He arrives to this deposition in plenty of time to read over and highlight a previous deposition in the case and say hello to plaintiff’s counsel, the scheduling attorney, and the court reporter.   By now it’s 5:00.  The nurse says the doctor’s ready.  Counsel and the court reporter are ready, but where, oh, where is the videographer?

The doctor says he’s got some dictation to do, and since everyone is there, and with a trial date looming, they agree to wait fifteen for the videographer.  The court reporter, who hired the videographer, is now red-faced and on the phone frantically trying to find out where he is.  She can’t reach him, and she says, “Doesn’t he know,” meaning the videographer, “if you’re not fifteen minutes early, you’re late?”  My husband didn’t say anything as he thought to himself, “That’s not the way my wife runs her court reporting & video deposition firm.” 

Well, the videographer never did show, so plaintiff’s counsel decided to proceed with just a written record of the deposition and forget about the videographer.  I’m sure glad I’m not that videographer right now.  Things happen, don’t get me wrong.  I don’t know enough of the facts to place blame anywhere, but once a trust like that is broken; it’s mighty hard to get back.

Taylor Court Reporters Kentucky has a different policy about when our court reporters arrive on the job.  Our policy:  Court reporters arrive thirty minutes prior to the scheduled start time of any deposition, earlier if necessary and our videographers arrive sixty minutes early.  Both court reporters and videographers arrive early in hopes of getting into the deposition room so they can assess their surroundings and set up their equipment in an orderly and unrushed fashion.   Court reporters and videographers work with many electronic components, all having wires, plugs, ports, and switches, and each one requiring on-site troubleshooting from time to time.  

So next time you set a deposition with Taylor Court Reporting Kentucky at any of the locations we cover, expect to see us on the job thirty or sixty minutes early, and if you don’t see us, ask the receptionist.  Chances are we’re already in the deposition room setting up, running a test and getting ready to begin.
