The Benefits of Remote Court Appearances

Posted on: October 26th, 2020 by Sfl Media No Comments

As court systems and courtrooms deal with coronavirus, we have learned that a lot of social distancing measures that are being taken are actually more convenient than how things were done pre-covid. One of these situations are with court appearances. Remote court appearances have become a blessing for attorneys and judges to become even more efficient than ever before. Overcrowding in courtrooms are now a thing of the past. It’s as simple as having a scheduled video call from CourtScribes between the attorneys and any other participants. Then, the judge dials into the call and conducts the trial right then and there.

The Benefits for Attorneys to Conduct Court Business Remotely

A major issue for attorneys is the ability to schedule cases and conduct multiple trials in different places. To do this efficiently is actually quite a chore. Travel times can cause an extreme amount of difficulty. This is especially true in situations like rush hour traffic and during severe weather.

However, newfound social distancing requirements are not only allowing for safety from the coronavirus but allowing for even better flexibility with time. This remote business should have a positive effect, as it should drive down fees and prices. This will help save the attorneys’ AND client’s money.

Are Judges Benefiting from Remote Court Appearances?

With remote appearances, attorneys and their clients will save plenty in terms of litigation fees through said remote court appearances, but what about the judges? Judges mainly reside in one area for most of their work. That is sitting in the middle of the courtroom overseeing the trial. A remote case allows a judge to just dial into video session after video session.

There is no longer any outer noise that will distract any of the participants in the case. All videos, recordings, depositions and other information is backed up and saved to an online database for judges to find. Finally, CourtScribes takes care of all the support inquiries, transitions between cases and even create private rooms quickly for a judge to talk to an attorney.
