I have a question...

I have a question regarding Maryland law and using transcripts from a current case.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a MD lawyer about this?

No.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Ordered the court transcripts.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The court has reopened a family law case, #####. In Sept 2017, the same case, the plaintiff made a few statements that I want to present in an upcoming trial on 27 March. To use the plaintiff statements, I can requests transcripts. My question, do I have to request official transcripts or less cost court transcripts. This is not an appeal.

"do I have to request official transcripts or less cost court transcripts."

Official transcripts. You have to contact the court reporter (one can simply call the main phone number and asked to be transferred) and request those records. The Court Reporter will then type them up and provide them to you. These records can be used in Court as evidence.
