I am a professional scopist and proofreader specializing in legal transcripts.

As a court reporter, you are responsible for producing a verbatim record of various legal proceedings.  Constructing quality transcripts involves a lot of time and hard work.  I can give you the gift of having more free time by working hard to ensure the accuracy of these very important documents by providing meticulous and precise scoping and/or proofreading.

Why should you trust me with your transcripts and, essentially, your good name? 

I know the utmost necessity of preserving the integrity and authenticity of verbatim speech while still maintaining readability.  With an eye for detail, I fastidiously read every word and search for errors in spelling, punctuation, format, spacing, capitalization, time lines, dates, addresses, address formats, homonyms, and by-lines.  I make sure attorneys’ and witnesses’ names are spelled correctly throughout the transcript.  I check if exhibits are listed correctly by page, exhibit name, description, and line number.  I research all company names and trademarks, pharmaceuticals, medical and technical terms, and attorney and firm names.

I am good at what I do because I love what I do.

My experience includes depositions, examinations under oath, hearings, trials, interpreted proceedings, sworn/unsworn statements, arbitrations, and medical and technical expert testimony.

I know the rules.

I follow NCRA guidelines and the teachings of Morson’s English Guide for Court Reporters, by Lillian I. Morson; Court Reporting:  Bad Grammar/Good Punctuation, by Margie Wakeman Wells; The Gregg Reference Manual, by William Sabin; The Associated Press Style Book and Briefing on Media Law; The Chicago Manual of Style.
