Remote Deposition Testimonials


“We have had the opportunity to work with Lake Cook Reporting for several years now and find them to be amazing.  They are extremely professional, timely and efficient.  When I call them for a deposition, everything is set up in a matter of no time, and Patty or Jennifer are always wonderful to follow up prior to the deposition to confirm and see if any further assistance is needed on their end.


Over the last few months with all the changes to the legal community brought on by the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have begun utilizing them more and more for video conference (Zoom) depositions, and each and every time, it takes only one call and within a matter of no time, Greg has everything set up and ready to go.  I am even more impressed that each time, he makes sure that contact is made with the deponent prior to the deposition to ensure everything is working properly and set to go.


Overall, if you are looking for a company that can handle all your deposition/meeting needs promptly and efficiently, and if you want wonderful customer service that is far above and beyond what other companies offer, Lake Cook Reporting is the company you are looking for.  We could not do our job without them!  They get an A+ all across the board.”

Pam from Hennessy & Roach, P.C.

“Lake Cook Reporting did a great job coordinating and hosting our depositions.  Technical support was available for trial runs with deponents unfamiliar with videoconferencing. They also addressed technical issues and demonstrated to counsel how to publish deposition exhibits.”
Gregg from Olson, Grabill & Flitcraft

“Lake Cook Reporting helped make what could have been a difficult task, arranging depositions via video conferencing last minute, go smoothly.  All communication with them was clear and timely and the deposition itself went as planned.  Would definitely use them for future depositions.”
Lisa from Kennedy, Kennedy & Ives

“When COVID-19 hit, many of our depositions had to be converted to Zoom.  Lake Cook Reporting truly proved to be a godsend in our moment of crisis.  They quickly demystified the Zoom process and restored our confidence that we could produce high quality video depositions with their expert technical assistance.  They are definitely my “go to” people for videotaped Zoom depositions, regardless of location.”
Todd from the Melton Law Firm, LLC
