Esther M. Hermida's insight:

The need continues to grow. Court interpreters need to be certified. Make sure your interpreter holds a certification from a recognized entity.

Esther M. Hermida's insight:

I must warn all those that use the services of a FREE interpreter that it's not free. Taxpayers are footing the bill. Why would the court provide a free interpreter in a tort case? Why not a free attorney while you're at it.  

If you hire an independent certified court interpreter, it'll be money well spent. The interpreter will be there from the beginning of your case. She'll be able to meet with you and your client in your office. She'll be able to interpret at a deposition and interview all witnesses before a hearing or trial. The free interpreter provided by the court, although certified, may not be familiar with your case, and you'll have to wait in line. He'll not be able to meet outside of court.
