We keep current with technology.  Our menu of services has evolved to meet the needs of a sophisticated and diverse clientele. Our business solutions are state of the art in court reporting, videography, videoconferencing, and document management.


Our staff is focused on client service. We are ready to assist you at any time. Our interactive website is available 24/7, meaning you have access to your case information whenever you need it.

Customer Service

Quality of service is our priority. We take care to assign the right reporter to each job, and reassign the same reporter and videographer to ongoing cases to ensure quality and familiarity with our clients and their cases.
