Partial list of clients
We are a small law firm in the United States. A defendant in a case moved to Bonn, Germany. In planning to take the deposition of the defendant in Germany, we ran into many challenges. First of all, the system is different in Germany and court reporters are difficult to locate. Fortunately, we were placed in touch with Frederick Weiss & Associates. Frederick and his firm have been so helpful! We required a videographer for the deposition, which Frederick and his firm was easily able to locate. The deposition was requested to take place after hours. Frederick and his staff were able to accommodate that request. We were having difficulty scheduling a conference room for the deposition due to time and language barriers. Frederick Weiss & Associates went over and above typical service and made contact and obtained estimates for conference rooms. The assistance provided by Mr. Weiss and his team has been invaluable.

On behalf of all members of the Arbitral Tribunal I wish to express our gratitude for your highly professional and most appreciated services as a court reporter in the hearing in Stockholm…
You managed very well to cope with a tremendous load of witnesses and of counsel speaking rapidly and often enough also in a way which was very hard to follow. It has always been a pleasure working with you during this week.
From our point of view you deserve as award in “witness testimony withstand capability”. Our award is expressed on the back of the puzzle included in this letter, which was the only item originating from Paris, your home town, which at the moment I could find in Stockholm.
We hope to be able to work with you again in the future.

Our firm needed to schedule a deposition of a German citizen in a case pending in the Connecticut Superior Court, which had to take place at the U.S. Embassy in Frankfurt. Since the Embassy has limited hours of time available during the day for deposition discovery, which must end shortly after 4 p.m., it posed a challenge to complete discovery of the witness within the allotted time.
Frederick Weiss & Associates arranged a skilled deposition interpreter to work alone throughout the strenuous day, a U.S. certified Videographer and a U.S. Certified Court Reporter, who all traveled locally with limited or no travel costs. Even though initially there were technical problems with the reporter's laptop, you were able to overcome the problem quickly and perform as a seamless legal support team, allow us the maximum amount of time for getting our evidence on the record before we had to leave the Embassy facility.
All in all, I would heartily recommend your services, reasonably priced, to my fellow attorneys here in the U.S. and abroad. Your team operated at the highest professional level and produced competent results at a reasonable price.
Any time we have discovery in Europe, we will look to Frederick Weiss & Associates as our legal support provider of choice!
