Using Transcription in Documenting an Investigative Statement

Recently, Steven N. Malitz, attorney and partner at Arnstein & Lehr’s Litigation Group, and David Zulawski, senior partner at Wicklander-Zulawski & Associates, Inc. wrote a blog entitled “Taking and Documenting a Statement” for the General Counselor describing the best practices for taking and documenting a statement in investigative interrogation. Mr. Malitz and Mr. Zulawksi suggest, under the heading of “Types of Statements”, that an investigative interrogator should record a witness’s or suspect’s statement and then have the recording transcribed and included in the file or case management system.
