Video Services

The deposition is the cornerstone of discovery and building a solid case. With trial in mind, capturing a deponent’s testimony on video can be the difference in effectively communicating credible (or not credible) testimony.

With Magna, you can remotely hold depositions, arbitrations, meetings, witness communication training, mock trials, and other jury research sessions.

Magna Legal Service’s in-house videography department employs highly experienced legal videographers providing the widest range of video deposition solutions. Using up-to-date technology, the most current video formats and industry standard software, Magna’s video department delivers the highest quality final product to take you from discovery to trial.

Ted Schaer, Esq. - Zarwin, Baum, DeVito Kaplan, Schaer & Toddy PC

I’ve taken hundreds if not thousands of depositions as an attorney and I go back to Magna each time because they are easy to deal with, deliver flawless transcripts and they are always accessible as they operate on a 24/7 basis.

Glenn Bergenfield, Esq - Glenn A. Bergenfield, P.C.

I was looking for a case valuation solution for a high exposure series of cases and Magna was able to create a system to provide me with what I needed. I have used JuryEvaluator on several cases and the results have been predictive and instrumental in resolving cases!

Steve Dzury - Senior Vice President, Claims, Berkley Public Entity Managers

There are many firms providing quality document translation. I get a call once a week. The main reason I work with Magna is their ability to be flexible. I had a difficult client that required a fast turnaround and of course they didn’t want to pay for the rush. My rep was able to pull the necessary levers to meet the time line at a price my client could afford.
