If you want to make your own recordings, in court, then you would need permission of the judge, but the judge would likely say that the court recording would be the only record permitted. But those are accurate and so would satisfy your needs. Outside of court you can record any discussion although you should tell the persons being recorded that you are doing so.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
