Top 10 Things Reporters Should Remember When Turning in Jobs

Fill out your worksheet correctly
Always make sure you have your information correct: Case name, Deponents, Attorneys, etc.

Have all information correct on order form
When the attorneys are filling out the order form, inform us if they have any specifications. For example, the quantity, if they just want an e-tran or a mini, a copy of the video, etc.

Inform us of special exhibits
For example, if there are two sided exhibits, color exhibits, plans, or anything in the exhibits that require our insight.

When mailing in exhibits...
Please include your worksheet or anything indicating what you have sent, make sure you have marked your exhibits, when we can expect your e-tran, if the job is expedited, or any information that would be beneficial to us.

Certifications
Californian/Arizonian reporters: we have some of your certs. All other state reporters, please make sure you send in your certs with your exhibits and worksheets. (If you are sending it through email make sure you have also included your certs.) Donít forget to sign them.

Reporter Instructions
Be clear and detailed if you have specific instructions for the Production Department. For example, attorney Mr. X wants the unmarked documents to be added to his transcript but not on the remaining attorneys. Please mail back the unmarked documents to witness Ms. ABC at the address provided below. Or Exhibit 145- Please make a copy and send original back to witness. You get the picture...
