I worked as a court reporter for 36 years and personally feel there are a number of characteristics that make a good reporter. Combined, and used properly, a reporter will be great. A reporter should arrive a minimum of 15 minutes early, have the caption information ahead of time and be extremely pleasant to all counsel and witnesses involved. Everything should be looked when transcribing/proofing the deposition to make sure all terminology is correct. Nothing is worse than the wrong medical word, as an example, being used. These are a few helpful hints to achieving success anywhere in the United States.
