Translation and interpretation is a primary aspect of the legal services we provide to our clients. Stephenson, Chávarri & Dawson offers these services to all clients, including other attorneys and law firms, businesses in all industries, insurance companies and more. Translation and interpreter services can also be of tremendous value to individuals—whether their matter involves a foreign national investor seeking an H1-B visa, an international visitor charged with a crime in New Orleans or an heir to an estate that includes property in a foreign country.
Attorney Catherine I. Chávarri is a U.S. court-certified translator. Several other members of our staff are fluent in Spanish and French (in addition to English). We also offer Portuguese-language and other translation/interpreter services as needed.
Our combined skills of understanding the legal process and conveying that information to clients in their native language means that we can comfortably represent them much more effectively. Our office is frequently retained by insurance companies, fellow attorneys, law firms, businesses and individuals to translate everything from oral and written statements at trial, court proceedings, depositions, investigations and examinations under oath to legal documents. The benefits of retaining a certified translator who is also an experienced attorney are self-evident. Our bilingual staff members are invaluable in a legal setting because of the legal—as well as linguistic—knowledge they bring to any proceeding.
For any business, precision is very important. Our ability to provide an accurate translation of court records, legal contracts, ships’ mortgages and other documents has been valued by business clients in Louisiana, across the U.S. and around the world.
To discuss your particular legal translation or interpreter needs, we invite you to contact our offices in New Orleans to schedule a consultation. At Stephenson, Chávarri & Dawson, our attorneys are willing to travel anywhere in the world in order to serve our clients’ interests.
