This seminar is open to LACCRA Members Only

Description/Educational Objectives:

The State of California has mandated a move to the paperless courthouse. LACCRA continues to offer this workshop with Yeslaw to encourage our members to be ready to hit the ground running as soon as Los Angeles Superior Court fully commits to receiving eFiled transcripts. The current law allowed for a five-year grace period for reporters and Courts who were not yet ready for the new technology.  That five-year period ends January 2023!

Court reporters will learn how to produce paperless transcripts from creating an ASCII to providing electronic distribution of PDF
transcripts. With YesLaw, reporters deliver a highly functional PDF that includes automatic bookmarking, automatic creation of multi-volume master indexes, and easy secure delivery to all parties.
• Installation and set-up of YesLaw software
• Recommendations for output to paperless delivery
• Overview of creating a YesLaw PDF from your ASCII output
• Delivery options for Los Angeles Official reporters
• What the delivery looks like and how to access online content

Presenter Bios:

John Garnett has been working with YesLaw for the past 10 years. John has overseen the development of the YesLaw reporter transcript-to-video synchronization software, and the launch of YesLaw PDF Transcript Generator Software paired with the YesLaw Online Repository. Mr. Garnett has designed an efficient and easy-to-use interface for the creation and distribution of electronic transcripts within the YesLaw software. He continues to respond to user feedback for the development and improvement of YesLaw software features.

Jeff Cobb has 40 years of experience in the court reporting industry. His vast experience encompasses steno mask reporting in the Marine
Corps, stenographic reporting in Hawaii and Washington, owning his own reporting business as well as managing sales and operations for a multi-million-dollar court reporting company in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Today, Jeff is excited to be back with Stenograph assisting in the creation of an enterprise solution to enhance and improve the
technology and communication between reporters, agencies, and their clients worldwide.

Diana Van Dyke has been a court reporter since 1995.  She began her career as an independent contractor reporting depositions for over five years before fulfilling one of her professional goals of becoming a Los Angeles Superior Court official in 2001.  After more than ten years of serving the public as an official in almost all of the various case types for which Los Angeles provides a court reporter, she now finds herself experiencing the challenge of an assignment in a long-cause felony trial court.  This is Diana’s ninth year of proudly serving the membership as a LACCRA Board member.  This will be the fifth year that Diana has participated in LACCRA's E-filing Committee, helping usher into the court system the newest tool in our court reporters' array of useful assets to our justice system.
