Videotaped evidence depositions provide added dimension to trial testimony.

  • Example videotaped evidence deposition by Lake Cook Reporting in Bannockburn, IL.

Use video recordings to present compelling testimony to a jury.

Before legal video, witnesses unable to appear at trial had their testimony taken down by a court reporter, with the transcript read out loud to a jury.

With the proliferation of legal video recording, it’s easier than ever to present videotaped evidence testimony as if the witness appeared in person. Our certified legal videography team records evidence depositions, edits objections as ruled on by a judge, and provides numerous options to play back testimony at trial.

We Listen To You. Evidence depositions made simple and effective.

Engage the jury with the image and voice of the witness testifying.

Example legal videography provided by Lake Cook Reporting in Chicago, IL.

Lake-Cook Reporting’s evidence deposition recordings provide an extra layer of interactivity for a jury not found from reading a deposition transcript. Instead of just having a written transcript, jurors can see and hear recorded responses from a witness.

Grabbing the attention of the jury remains an integral part of litigation, and courtroom playback of testimony provides a simple yet effective add-on with the goal of making an impression on jurors.

The benefits of videotaped evidence depositions include:

  • Context behind answers based on vocal tones, emotions, and other nonverbal cues.
  • Multimedia that captivates and captures the attention of a jury.
  • Demonstrating emotional impact of a case from a party or other witness.
  • Allowing an expert witness to present facts in their own words.
  • Accountability for attorneys, with tone of questions and demeanor becoming a factor.
  • Save on time and travel expenses for your out-of-town or expert witnesses.
  • Forcing settlement talks based on the the prospect or outcome of a videotaped deposition.
