"DTFL has been a revelation. The standard of their typing and the speed of their response has changed the way that chambers can function. We would now be lost without them. All members of chambers that use the facility have been similarly stunned. We could not recommend the service more sincerely"

Legal digital dictation transcription service

A team of qualified and experienced UK-based legal secretaries will transcribe all your correspondence, attendance/file notes, statements and any other documents you wish us to produce. All secretaries have advanced word processing skills including index and tables, footnotes, cross-referencing, styles and automatic paragraph numbering.

If you use DTFL regularly for your correspondence, Court headings, names and addresses need only to be dictated once – as you would to your own secretary.

DTFL uses online checks to ensure correct addresses and/or company names, including completing missing or incomplete postcodes.

Templates and standard documents/paragraphs

If you do not have templates, send in samples of finished work and DTFL will create templates for you at no additional charge.

If you have standard documents and/or standard clauses for a Consent Order or a Will that you would like us to use, DTFL can index them and you then need only dictate the document or clause number and field information – saving you time and money.

Legal forms

DTFL uses Oyez and FreeFormLaw (forms in Word) for all Court and Land Registry forms. We can use Quantum Skip for family law, but you will need to add DTFL to your existing licence.

Conference and interview transcription

DTFL can transcribe all conferences and interviews in digital format. The cost of this type of transcription depends on the clarity of the recording, number of participants and length of recording. Please note this service is not a “same day turnaround”.

What are the benefits of DTFL’s digital transcription service?

Using DTFL’s legal typing and digital transcription service enables you to increase your productivity and increase your profits:

  • All work received by 1.00pm guaranteed completed and returned the same day – although we aim to get work received after that time back to you.
  • Increasing the number of fee earners without needing to increase the number of secretaries.
  • Freeing-up your secretaries’ time to help with more administration and fee-earning work.
  • Avoiding the need to continually train temporary staff – once we have your templates no training is required.
  • Eliminating the cost of temps/agency fees.
  • Reducing your dependency on pool typists and/or floats.
  • Cutting the costs of staff turnover.
  • Only paying for the work you send – no fixed costs or retainers during quiet periods.
  • No holiday/sick pay.
  • Reducing the cost of software licences – the software is our responsibility.
  • No monthly or minimum fees and no contract.
