From the President

Because litigation testimony is an important element in the discovery process and can be complex by nature, utilizing new technologies is very valuable.

Not every court reporting agency provides deposition management tools for their clients. But that is one of our main goals, so that your trial preparation process goes smoothly.

As technology continues to evolve quickly, we are constantly improving upon our systems, to help you manage your court reporting planning and details. Please let us know of ways that we can further improve our technologies or services to your practice’s benefit.

Best regards,
Sheila Atkinson-Baker

Ode to the Bar Exam

“I’m worried I won’t pass the bar,”
Cried the would-be attorney (no star).
His career he regretted.
Strung out, how he fretted:
He shouldn’t have quit the guitar.

Ode to a Grudge-Holding Judge

There once was a federal judge, Who was famous for holding a grudge.
But his clerk found a way To get him to say,
“I forgive you.” She bribed him with fudge.
