With a Heat Wave Comes a Crime Wave

Ah summertime – warm weather, lazy beach days – and an increase of crime. With heat waves we can also expect a crime wave.

Police and other law enforcement officers have known for years that with warmer weather comes an increase in crime. Various types of crimes increase in the summer months, including theft, vandalism and more violent acts. There are many theories as to why – juveniles out of school, more social interaction in warmer climate, more opportunities for criminals, heat aggravation making anger-prone people more violent, etc. However the facts don’t lie, and lawyers, especially those specializing in criminal defense, public defenders and juvenile attorneys, should prepare themselves and their firms for an increase of clients once the warmer weather hits.

With this increase of potential clients, attorneys should improve their efficiency to be able to take on more clients in the busy summer months.

Transcription will help you when the crime wave hits during the summer

Transcription makes it easy for attorneys to breeze through client notes, meetings, conference calls and more and removes the time-draining burden of having to type notes from these meetings in-house. By dictating or recording these important interactions, transcription companies such as Ditto Transcripts, can then quickly transcribe these files and return the document either thorough an easy-to-use web-based platform or by email. This simple process leaves attorneys free to get back to important client meetings, and leaves the transcribing to trained legal transcriptionists.

In addition, transcribing also creates neat, easy-to-read documents that other individuals can review, which can help if multiple attorneys are working on one case or if an attorney is unexpectedly replaced on a case. And using a transcription company is always less expensive than having an in-house employee type the notes.

Lawyers may also need to transcribe video surveillance, police surveillance, police interrogations, witness interviews, wire taps and more to help support their client’s case. Ditto Transcripts also offers fast turn-around-time and competitive pricing to transcribe these types of recordings. It is yet another way lawyers can speed up their cases and take on a larger caseload during the busy season.
