NEW YORK, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ask any attorney - the practice of law is a lot more than just brief and memo writing, jury trials, and intense negotiations in a boardroom. There is also the dreaded travel from the attorney's office to the courthouse or to speak with opposing counsel. Attorneys must take into consideration the ubiquitous rubber necking, roadwork, and the hassles of parking. Can't there be a way for attorneys to focus practicing law, instead of wasting their time coordinating travel? After all, cellular phones, video technology, and high-speed internet have enabled us to instantly communicate with all corners of the world... why can't court appearances be this easy?

They can be. AppearByPhone™, which provides remote telephonic appearances for courts, has announced an affiliated sister service: AppearByVideo. AppearByVideo will allow courthouses to conduct remote video appearances within a reliable, secure, high-definition video appearance network. Our trained operators assist with each video appearance, ensuring that quality, security, and reliability are never compromised.

With either of these services, courthouses can clear dockets faster, limit delays and wasting of precious time, and cut down the congestion. This will all be accomplished while also saving precious taxpayer dollars and keeping service in the public interest.  Both AppearByPhone™ and AppearByVideo are free to the court, and existing video conferencing equipment can be used with our service. If your court does not have the equipment to conduct video appearances, we will provide the equipment for free! These services may also be used for video arraignment, depositions, or counsel to convene interoffice video conferences.  

Attorneys no longer need to leave their office and spend a full day traveling for a 15-minute hearing. This will not only save traveling costs but also significantly reduce the attorneys' carbon footprint. Gone are the hours spent idling in traffic and waiting for a parking spot. Productivity will increase and out of pocket costs will decrease, which is a welcome change for all parties! 

AppearByPhone™ and AppearByVideo base their operations in Rushville, IL and New York, NY. The services were created with ease of use, security, and reliability in mind. Professional operators will assist with your remote court appearances to ensure that your appointment is smooth and seamless. Our proprietary meet-me video conference network ensures that only confirmed and authorized participants can access the appearance. Furthermore, the users' phone numbers and any other contact information are not publicly displayed.
