Founded by the experienced court reporter Kim Neeson (who you can find on LinkedIn), Neeson & Associates is one of the most sought-after court reporting and arbitration services in Canada. Neeson & Associates offers a wide range of services including transcription, arbitration and captioning to clients in the corporate, legal, government and hearing loss communities. In addition, boardroom, meeting room and conference room rental is available, with or without Neeson & Associates’ captioning services.

Recognized for reliability and accuracy, Neeson & Associates is home to some of the most highly trained court reporters in the country. Each of our court reporters possesses a shorthand speed of at least 225 words per minute (wpm) with a general accuracy level of 99%. In addition, our court reporters hold a variety of certifications, including U.S. standard certifications.

As one of the many important services offered by Neeson & Associates is creating US depositions, we believe it is important for our stenographers to be accredited to the highest American court reporting standards.

A deposition is a testimony given by a witness outside of court. Essentially, it is the act of giving sworn evidence. A deposition is usually conducted before a trial and without the presence of a judge to supervise the examination. Instead, the witness being deposed is put under oath.

The purpose of a deposition is to develop background information and evidence prior to any legal proceedings. Having this information before a hearing can help lawyers better prepare their case for trial. The written record of a deposition is called an affidavit. This written record can be referenced during a hearing or trial to help determine the final outcome of the proceedings.

The statements given in a deposition can later be used against the party who gave the deposition, or to reinforce evidence. They can even change the entire outcome of a trial! Needless to say, it is incredibly important that a transcript is accurate and precise.
