Videoconferencing is one way to keep your litigation moving forward while still maintaining social distancing. Given the circumstances we find ourselves in, we have decided to waive all charges normally associated with videoconferencing until Governor Brown lifts the stay-at-home order.
VIDEOCONFERENCING FROM YOUR LAPTOP OR OTHER MOBILE DEVICE
We can set up a virtual meeting room that participants can join from their home or office. All you need is a laptop with a webcam and microphone and good internet access. In some cases, the audio connection may need to be via phone to eliminate issues with echo and feedback.
VIDEOCONFERENCING FROM OUR OFFICE
We also have increased the number of videoconference rooms at our office in Eugene, and we can host up to two to three participants in each room and still maintain the required social distancing. This option is a good choice for participants who don’t have access to a computer or don’t have a strong internet signal. We handle the technical side of connecting our room to those who are participating remotely.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Scheduling: We will set up the meeting for you and make sure that all participants are familiar with how to connect. Our staff will also monitor the meeting and will be available to troubleshoot should any problems come up.
Exhibits: Documents can be displayed on the screen and marked. The reporter will be responsible for managing exhibits at the direction of counsel. Click here for more information.
Swearing the witness: Certified Shorthand Reporters have the authority to swear witnesses in remotely per ORCP 38 and 39. All of our reporters are certified by the State of Oregon, and many of them hold national certifications as well.
Different platforms: Most of our videoconference meetings are held through the Zoom platform, but we can work with Cisco WebEx, BlueJeans, Cameo, and many others.
