In the legal profession, time is money. Every minute spent on administrative tasks, like transcribing notes and reviewing audio and video evidence, is time that could be better spent on billable work. That is where VIQ Solutions comes in, offering a suite of transcription and digital evidence management tools that help law firms save time and money while improving the accuracy and security of their records.
VIQ’s FirstDraft™ speech-to-text transcription software is an integral part of legal workflow, enabling attorneys and support staff to transcribe notes, interviews, and other recordings quickly and accurately into text documents that can be easily reviewed and shared. Advanced artificial intelligence analyzes speech patterns and automatically recognizes if there are multiple speakers to ensure diarization is applied while quickly creating the transcript with a high degree of accuracy, reducing the time and effort required for manual transcription.
Here are a few examples of legal professionals that trust VIQ Solutions to help them expedite the time to create records:
Church Church Hittle and Antrim Law Firm (CCHA)
CCHA optimized their process by self-editing the AI-generated FirstDraft documents and requesting professional editing by a VIQ transcriptionist only when necessary, resulting in cost savings, accurate formatting, and improved collaboration. FirstDraft shortened review hours and enabled easier search of information, freeing up time for important legal tasks.
“FirstDraft has been a tool we have come to utilize on a regular basis. It saves us and our clients time and money. It is the most cost-effective solution we have found that meets our needs. Additionally, customer service is great if we ever run into any issues or questions.”
– Kelleigh Irwin Fagan | Partner
Arizona Law Firm
FirstDraft speech-to-text streamlined the deposition backlog by reducing the time it took to transcribe them from eight hours to just a few minutes. The automated formatting and easy searchability of FirstDraft also helped reduce miscommunications, making it a game changer – reducing time, cost, and stress for the lawyers. The law firm now uses FirstDraft to maintain written records and only requests verbatim transcription services when necessary, enabling them to focus on serving their clients cost-effectively.
“FirstDraft has helped us optimize our documentation of depositions, 911 calls, lawyer notes and more. Though we are a smaller law practice, I believe the value can translate to larger firms and have recommended it to several paralegals I know.”
