July 2013

From the President

Our reporters have been serving many of your firms for over twenty years, and collectively they have transcribed 623,751 depositions in 8,555 different cities nationwide. What an accomplishment!

What follows are two recent comments from our clients which echoes feedback that we get from clients on a regular basis. I share these with you so you can see the types of comments we get from around the U.S. about our top-notch reporters.

“Your reporter was amazing! She arrived extra early to set up. Her personality is priceless. She is professional. I will always request her, and I hope we are able to have her every time. Please make a permanent note to send her to our office!” H.C., Coral Gables, FL

“I took depositions recently in Orlando, Florida, with your court reporter. I don’t usually write such emails, but I wanted to make sure you know that she is an excellent court reporter. She was a pleasure to work with – professional, friendly, and very hardworking. The case is complicated and involved complex, technical explanations of how a certain software/hardware works, but she was able to work through everything quickly and keep up with the fast pace of the deposition. In summation, she is excellent and I would highly recommend her to any attorney in the future!” M.G., San Marino, CA.

Our reporters are loyal and continue to be of the highest quality in the nation. Working for you gives them the drive to diligently work at improving their craft, and for that we thank you!

Best regards,

I have one, you have one.

If you remove the first letter, a bit remains. If you remove the second, bit still remains. After much trying, you might be able to remove the third one also, but it remains. It dies hard!
