Court Reporting



The transcript is an important document before, during, and after a trial. It is used for trial preparation, briefs, impeachment, purposes, and, of course, for appellate review. Property, freedom, and life can depend on a clear and accurate record. It aids in every attorney’s ability to represent their client. Frequently, cases are won and lost based on what’s on the record. Some cases are lost in trial that are subsequently won on appeal.
