Testimonials from our clients

Court Reporters
Rating: ★★★★★

When my boss had a trial recently, she was prepared in almost every way. However, the only thing she didn’t have was a court reporter and she needed it that day. She put me to the task of calling agencies trying to get a court reporter prior to the Memorial Day Weekend.

I called 26 agencies and while several called me back, they couldn’t get me a reporter. I spoke with Patty at Lake Cook Reporting and she also said she would make some calls. I was shocked when she called back a while later stating that she had one. Patty went out of her way to find a court reporter for me and we were very grateful for it.

I still have my list of court reporting agencies, but I know which one I will call first from now on. They truly went out of their way for me. Thank you!
