From the President

Because we know you have a choice when it comes to court reporting services, we appreciate the opportunity to serve you.  We will continue to make sure our services fill your needs at the highest quality level.

If you’re not already familiar with it, our Active Client Services allows firms to manage everything online, from calendaring depositions to downloading transcripts.  You also have the option of limiting the information to a particular case, key witness, or attorney.

Once you have viewed a list of jobs, you can get the specifics on any particular deposition by double-clicking on its job number.  Please start taking advantage of it, if you don’t already.  It can be very helpful to your attorneys.

Best regards,
