Making Transcripts of Witness Interviews

David Swanner at the South Carolina Trial Law Blog has good advice for obtaining written transcripts of witness interviews. David suggests adding as a third caller on a conference call with the witness.

Swanner explains:

You question the witness and at the end of the call hang up. Between 15-30 minutes later, you’ll have a transcript of the interview e-mailed to you along with a digital recording of the conversation. You get the automatic recording and the transcript in one fell swoop.

This is just another example how leveraging technology can make our lives easier.
