CourtCall was established in 1995, with the desire to make remote Court Appearances simple, accessible and affordable for all parties. With this objective in mind, CourtCall developed the Remote Appearance Platform, creating an organized and voluntary way for attorneys to appear for routine matters in Civil, Family, Criminal, Probate, Bankruptcy, Workers’ Compensation and other cases from their offices, homes or other convenient locations. Designed with reliable and user-friendly technologies, Courts and remote participants experience seamless communication during cases, while benefiting from significant time and cost savings.
Today, CourtCall is the industry leader for conducting remote Court Appearances throughout the United States, Canada and Worldwide. Technologies continue to expand, such that remote Court Appearances can be conducted with audio, video, and when necessary, remote interpretation services.
Remote Appearance Platform
Full Duplex, state-of-the-art speakerphone and dedicated phone line ensure optimal audio quality.
Proprietary, browser-based video application requires no expensive equipment installations or software downloads.
Up to 16 participants per case may share video simultaneously, with nearly an unlimited number of participants connecting by audio.
Customizable Platform depending on which technologies and services best suit a Judge’s assignment and preferences.
Versatile Platform to allow remote participation in virtually any proceeding, from status conferences and motions, to witness testimony.
Courts routinely deal with defendants, witnesses and other participants requiring interpretation:
Interpreters play a key role in administration of justice:
A defendant/witness needs an interpreter to understand the Court and counsel
The Court needs the interpreter to understand the testimony
Common inefficiencies when interpreters appear in-person at the Court:
Cost and inconvenience of travel
Due to short notice or scheduling conflicts, proceedings may be delayed
The wait can be lengthy even when the proceeding that requires the interpreter is brief
The waiting itself can be costly and unproductive
Video Arraignment and Traffic Court
A significant cost and risk to the courts, law enforcement and the public is the transportation of in-custody defendants and patients for what are often brief proceedings such as arraignments, plea agreements and forensic mental health reviews. The CourtCall video arraignment platform increases efficiency and safety while reducing the costs of these proceedings. The advantages are clear regardless of which agency currently bears the costs or provides the transport of the in-custody participants.
With fewer open courthouses and longer lines and waiting times to resolve traffic or parking citations, CourtCall’s remote video technology provides motorists the opportunity to save time and costs by being heard remotely and creates greater efficiencies for the courts and law enforcement. More importantly, those contesting traffic or parking citations need not be required to miss work, school or family obligations.
