Who are Digital Transcription for Lawyers (DTFL)?
Digital Transcription for Lawyers (DTFL) was established by Annabel Hurdman in 2003, specifically to offer digital transcription services to the legal profession.
Annabel has more than 30 years’ experience as a legal secretary covering crime, family, child law, personal injury, human rights, court martial, company commercial, conveyancing, marine and probate.
In 2003, Annabel saw the potential for a fast and accurate transcription service for law firms that capitalised on the ease of sharing digital files. She developed DTFL as a flexible and user-friendly legal typing and transcription service that produces work in pre-agreed, bespoke client templates.
What does Digital Transcription for Lawyers (DTFL) offer?
DTFL uses a pool of experienced UK legal secretaries. All are personally vetted and tested by Annabel and meet the rigorous standards for transcription quality, accuracy and expertise for which DTFL has become renowned. Having a pool of ‘standby’ secretaries ensures that there are always enough secretaries to meet the demand. It is one of the reasons why DTFL can guarantee that all sound files received by 1.00pm will be transcribed and returned the same day.
Since DTFL was established, the company has expanded rapidly, largely through word of mouth and enquiries through its website. However, Annabel has made great efforts to ensure that the company retains the personal touch which has proved popular with clients and provided the foundation for its success to date.
