Leveraging the Law Library’s teleconference equipment to save you money

It’s Monday. You’ve got two hearings in the morning plus a bench trial in the afternoon. It’s raining, the traffic is terrible but somehow you’ve got to manage to meet with your client who is currently incarcerated in Butler County. What do you do?

You’re involved in a case where the defendant originally lived in Arizona. You need to depose several expert witnesses from Arizona, but you don’t have a reliable Skype connection or you aren’t sure how to set one up. Not to mention you need a court reporter to take down the deposition. What do you do?

You need to hold a hearing with one of the Common Pleas judges but your client is being held off site and you can’t get them transported in a timely manner. What do you do?

If you’re a subscriber to the Law Library, you just use our teleconference software in our Board Room.

This service is completely free for subscribers and comes with technical support from our friendly librarians. We have both Skype and a Polycom system that offer crisp, clear audio and video to ensure all information is communicated effectively. We have direct links to many locations so that very little notice is needed on our end to set up a teleconference call. For those locations that are new to our system, we will work with them ahead of your scheduled call to ensure that there are no glitches or technological surprises.

All you have to do is set up things on the other end - coordinate witnesses, court reporters and judges, contact the jail and etc. We strive to make the whole process as easy and seamless as humanly possible to save you both time and money. Just think – no more drives to Butler County to see a client! What will you do with all your free time?
