Powers of the Court Reporter

You play an important role as the check that balances interactions within the legal system. Despite this, the value of your work is too often discounted.

Lightning Law wants to change that by giving freelance court reporters the power to oversee all aspects the depositions you host on our platform.

Transcribe on your own schedule

Lawyers may order official transcripts before, during, or after the deposition. Rough draft and certified transcripts are easy to upload.

  • You get full access to electronic receipts from each transcript request.
  • Lawyers provide the date by which they want to receive rough and certified transcripts.
  • You’re paid extra for rushed transcripts.

Manage exhibits

Stamping an exhibit is as easy as clicking a button.

  • Exhibits are placed into legal hold through Lightning Law and available to lawyers immediately for download.
  • Marks contain the chronological order in which exhibits were stamped for easy recall.
  • Stamp exhibits anytime during or after the deposition.

Get quick and reliable payouts

Your earnings should match the weight of your role. Court reporters, on average, will earn more for appearance and transcription fees per deposition across the board when performing freelance work with Lightning Law, compared to working for most firms.

  • Get paid your appearance fee within 24 hours from the completion of the deposition and your per-transcript fee after uploading the Certified Transcript.
  • Payments are deposited into your connected bank account immediately through the Stripe payment system.
  • All receipts are electronic to ensure that lawyers pay for the transcripts they ordered.

Scheduling on your time

When creating the deposition, lawyers input the start and estimated end times for their deposition. Electronic transcript orders ensure that you know how many copies you are responsible for. Audio records are available so that you know your transcription is correct.
