Discoveries and Hearings
LEX Reporting Services can help during your Discovery process, for example with transcription support during pre-trial examination of witnesses.
We know transcription support during Discovery can be important:
The transcript of the examination does not generally form part of the evidence on which the court will decide the case, but at trial the examining party may introduce any part of the transcript into the record or may use the transcript to point to contradictions or variations between a witness's testimony in court and prior statements made by the same witness on discovery.
A professional partner delivering your transcription support allows you to focus in other areas safe in the knowledge that when you need it you have the transcripts your case requires.
In addition to Discovery work we are also experienced with Hearings and regularly work with clients who require transcription support for Hearings.

Discovery is a pre-trial procedure in a lawsuit in which each party, through the law of civil procedure, can obtain evidence from the other party or parties by means of discovery devices such as a request for answers to interrogatories, request for production of documents, request for admissions and depositions.
In law, a hearing is a proceeding before a court or other decision-making body or officer, such as a government agency.
A hearing is generally distinguished from a trial in that it is usually shorter and often less formal. In the course of litigation, hearings are conducted as oral arguments in support of motions, whether to resolve the case without further trial on a motion to dismiss or for summary judgment, or to decide discrete issues of law, such as the admissibility of evidence, that will determine how the trial proceeds.
