    Default How to Obtain a Copy of a Deposition

    My question involves estate proceedings in the state of Texas:

    My case is already in probate court and we are to have a jury trial in mid year. There are 2 depositions that were taken from the parties on the other side of which I only have a hard copy of one. I have repeatedly asked my lawyer for a copy of the second one but he has been busy with other things ( 8 weeks and counting) and has been unable to do so.

    Is there any other way for me to attain a copy of the deposition (of which my lawyer has said I am entitled to have). If I were to call the respective court reporting office which took the deposition, would they be able to give me a copy just by me requesting it?

    If not, what other options do I have?

    Thank you for your time.

    You would have to pay for it if you went that route. That's how court reporters make a living, by selling the copies.

    Wait for your attorney not not be so busy.

    Or be a little more aggressive with him since you are paying him to work for you.

    I already told my attorney I would pay for this particular. All he would need to do was order it. Are you saying that normally the attorney would foot the bill himself and not charge me for a copy?

    No.

    He'll charge you for expenses in addition to his fee.

    As long as you know you will pay for it anyway, might as well contact the court reporter yourself if you want it sooner.
