YesLaw, a provider of software that publishes and delivers deposition content, announced its support for LexisNexis TextMap and CaseMap. The software maker's Transcript Generator allows court reporters to create transcripts in PDF and also publish them to TextMap Evidence Format (TMEF), complete with embedded and hyperlinked exhibit files and a concordance word index.
YesLaw software enables attorneys and other legal professionals to review transcripts and video depositions and identify key testimony as well as create and export video clips for presentation at trial, mediation, and settlement hearings.
YesLaw's integration with LexisNexis transcript software makes it easy and efficient for law firms using TextMap and CaseMap to import and review depositions and retain hyperlinks to exhibits as well as text-to-video synchronization. Although YesLaw also supports Thomson Reuters LiveNote, confirmed Brian Clune, vice president of YesLaw, it's not to the extent of the company's planned integration with LexisNexis products.
Clune told LTN that YesLaw users, primarily court reporters in reporting firms, can now publish deposition transcripts in PDF format and check a box to also publish the transcripts in native TextMap format. In one click, continued Clune, the reporters can securely deliver the transcripts with hyperlinked evidence exhibits and word indexes and wheels, along with any synchronized video, to legal professionals via email and store the transcript content to YesLaw's online repository, which hosts document deposits, transcripts, linked exhibits, and streaming video for law firm customers.
YesLaw got its start from converting home movies and personal family content into digital files, said Clune. It was approached by attorneys to get legacy files into digital format. Today continued Clune, YesLaw makes software that runs locally to produce transcripts that can be delivered through web services and stored in the cloud for further work. The ultimate client, lawyers, can use YesLaw cloud services to add work product to transcripts, such as highlights, digests, and notes. But their cloud work product, and the metadata around it, cannot be downloaded in native TextMap format today. That will be the next enhancement to YesLaw, which users will see before the next LegalTech New York, said Clune.
Santa Clara, Calif.-based YesLaw is a division of YesVideo. The company has also integrated its transcript software with AccessData's Summation, inData Corp.'s TrialDirector, and LexisNexis' Sanction. Like YesLaw's support for LexisNexis and Thomson Reuters, these integrations connect transcripts, exhibits, and video with advanced tools for managing and building a case for trial.
