Local vs. National

Local vs. National

Local vs. National

 

Why are you letting your client pay Wall Street page rates in, say, the Grand Canyon State, when the most experienced, highly respected professional court reporters own businesses in your back yard??? Insist that your personally-vetted, LOCAL court reporting professional be present at your deposition.

Locally owned companies with a vested interest in the community, in fact, do create a greater economic impact, indirectly supporting more jobs, payroll and output locally.

National “body brokers” of court reporting services, by their very nature, are controlled from central headquarters ? which could be anywhere in the world.? In many instances, they do not even have a brick-and-mortar business in your state, and they blindly throw a dart into an unknown pool of anonymous reporters. Sound familiar? They are making decisions based on factors which might not have anything to do with what is right, or legal, for one particular location, business or community. Any cost-containment or savings promised by a national firm is illusory, as rates from all over the country much higher than local rates are calculated into their price matrix.?? In many cases, you are simply throwing your client’s money away.

Several of these national firms who procure exclusive third-party contracts with carriers, have a history of suing individual states (taxpayers), practicing in gross violation of local codes, and even bankruptcy, leaving local vendors, consumers and property owners holding the bag for unpaid services, payroll and leases.

Think of your client first.?? Operating under an exclusive contract with a supposedly-neutral officer of the court doesn’t even pass the sniff test of impartiality.?? Does it??? You and your client are being charged more for the layers of administration for like or inferior customer service.

Important Changes to the Arizona Code of Judicial Administration

Our deepest respect and appreciation to membership of the Arizona Bar, the Court Reporting Board, the Committee on Superior Court, The Task Force on Certified Court Reporting Regulation, the Arizona Judicial Council, and the Arizona Court Reporters Association.?? The recently-approved revision of ACJA 7-206 goes a long way toward the goal of protecting the public by now registering reporting firms, mandating demonstration of true equality in billing, prohibiting the reporting profession from facilitating or engaging in advocatory activities and defining protocols for increased security of the record.
