What We Offer

Legal digital transcription service

A team of qualified and experienced UK-based legal audio typists will take care of all your outsourced legal digital transcription requirements.  We will transcribe all your correspondence, attendance/file notes, statements as well as any other documents you wish us to produce.

The team have advanced word processing skills including index and tables, footnotes, cross-referencing, styles and automatic paragraph numbering.

Regular use of our service is just like an extension of your own team, meaning you will only have to dictate details such as Court headings, references, names and addresses once, just as you would do normally to one of your own secretaries.

Templates and standard documents/paragraphs

We are able to work to any of your existing documentation templates to ensure consistency is maintained, however if you do not already have templates in place, we would be pleased to create them for you based on your previous work at no extra cost.  For cost effectiveness and efficiency we can incorporate all of your standard clauses and standard documents for Consent Orders, Wills and standard letters, including client care.  This means in the future you only need to dictate the clause number or document and we will ensure it is completed with the appropriate information.

Legal forms

DTFL uses the Government’s website for all Court and Land Registry forms (in PDF and Word format).

Conference and interview transcription

DTFL can transcribe conferences, telephone calls and PACE interviews in digital format.  We do not offer this service on a “same day turnaround”; however let us know your expectations and we will endeavour to meet them.  The cost of this type of outsourced legal digital transcription is dependent on a variety of factors, including the audio quality of the recording as well as the length and number of people involved.  Please contact us for further details.

Some of our Reviews

"Annabel and her Team provide a flawless service.  The work is meticulously accurate and beautifully formatted and comes back straight away.  I cannot recommend DTFL highly enough nor is it possible to imagine any way in which their service could be improved upon"

"Life in the office is fast and hard.  We could not meet the needs of our clients without the services of DTFL who are always there whether it be to cope with a crisis quickly or deal with the daily deluge of correspondence."

Family Law Practice, Birmingham

"We have been using DTFL for well over a year now.  We have found DTFL, and in particular Annabel, to be exceptional.  Their service is excellent both in accuracy and speed.  Many of our documents are lengthy and having such accurate transcription of our dictation makes our lives easier and our client service better.  I cannot recommend Annabel and DTFL highly enough."

Specialist Employment Law Solicitors, Lincolnshire

“I have worked with Annabel and the team at DTFL for many years.  The service is professional but personal.  Annabel takes great pride in her business and the service that she provides.  The work is of a very high quality.  The typing is very accurate which is impressive as the turnaround time from sending the sound files for typing to the finished product is very fast indeed.  I would not hesitate to recommend DTFL as an outsourcing service to lawyers as a replacement for or as a supplement to an inhouse typing team.”

Family Law and Divorce Solicitors, Essex

“Annabel and her team at DTFL give us great flexibility of secretarial resource and always provide a speedy, accurate and efficient response to our requirements; they are an indispensible part of our team enabling us to deliver with their help the rapid and professional service required by our commercial clients.”

Commercial Property Lawyers, Oxfordshire

“I have been so impressed with the professionalism and speed that DTFL offer.  I have worked with a number of digital dictation services over time, but none has really been able to deliver whey they promise.  DTFL really do what they say they do.  My clients are really impressed with how quickly their work is turned around.  I am amazed at how much time this service saves me.  In a world when we are all used to doing at least some of our own typing it comes as a surprise when you see it done quickly, efficiently and accurately.  A fantastic service – what more could anyone want?”

Solicitor and Mediator

“We have been using DTFL for over eight years now.  They have reduced the need for in-house secretaries considerably, at a fraction of the cost.  With a one hour turn around, accurate transcription and an “as and when we need service”, we have not looked back.  We are happy to recommend them.”

Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Bury

“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”
