Miami court reporters
The Miami court reporters of CourtScribes embrace innovation in ways lawyers should as well.

Innovation is a key to improving the legal system, something the Miami court reporters of CourtScribes have taken to heart and other players are learning.

Ivy Grey writes in Evolve The Law that lawyers need to embrace innovation themselves:

Too many lawyers with great ideas that could improve legal practice are discouraged from even trying to innovate. As lawyers, we assume that innovation must mean invention, technology, and programming. By accepting that assumption, we are accepting the belief that innovation is something that other people do. But that’s not true. Innovation can be any new process or new way of thinking — and that can be game changing. Innovating is for lawyers, and lawyers already have the skills to be innovators. No coding necessary.

Who could be better to find innovative ways to solve our client’s problems than us? Let’s put lawyers back in the mix of innovating for a better future of legal practice. We can do that by expanding our concept of what it means to innovate and who can be an innovator.

We believe that we’re incapable of solving our own problems because most of us aren’t programmers. But the legal profession is missing out on untold new ideas — and diversity — because we allow the assumption that the ability to program is a prerequisite for innovation to thrive. This assumption means we get caught up in technology and miss innovations and possibilities right in front of us.

The Miami court reporters of CourtScribes is on the leading edge of innovation within the legal system.

While CourtScribes offers traditional courtroom stenography, it adds high tech audio, cloud-based services and courtroom video to the mix in a way that increases accuracy while decreasing cost.

Entrepreneur and professor Barry Unger, in a white paper, writes that the court reporting agency is leading a wave of change to disrupt the centuries-old profession.

Unger writes: “CourtScribes is changing the court reporting industry by using Internet age technology to create the official record of court proceedings, using remote transcriptionists and charging attorneys up to 50% less than what they now pay, and as … a disruptive technology will not only improve the quality of services, but also ultimately extend and even democratize the use of services that are today often restricted only to high profile or high dollar value cases.”
