COVID-19 and Remote Depositions

The O’Brien & Levine Court Reporting staff is currently presenting helpful webinars for affinity bar associations and law firm litigation teams on the resources available to minimize disruption to your practices. Civil court expects cases to move forward.

With remote depositions conducted through a secure videoconferencing platform, discovery continues. Exhibits are shared electronically.

This webinar (under 15 minutes) connects the dots. You will become familiar with the protocols for shifting the deposition venue from a conference room to the devices you use in your home office.

Depending on your case requirements, O&L team members will tailor the best remote solution for your proceeding. Download the Zoom Remote Depo Quick Start Guide or view the webinar’s detailed explanation below including exhibit sharing.



You’ll learn about:

  • Technology required
  • How the legal team participates
  • Role of the court reporter as host, including swearing-in the witness
  • Introducing, marking, annotating and post-deposition distribution of electronic exhibits
  • Support before, during and after the deposition

Our webinars have been tailored for the Boston Bar Association, Women’s Bar Association, Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys, Massachusetts Bar Association and Massachusetts Defense Lawyers Association and others. We have also brought our webinar to litigation teams attended by partners, associates, paralegals and legal assistants.

Interested in scheduling a demo on how you can put this into practice? We’ll walk you through it.
