A good court reporter can be good to find. Back in the day, an attorney would have to scourge phone books, call up several different firms, and hope the firm they landed on is truly a quality business. The process is still the same nowadays, except it is entirely digital, and perhaps even a little trickier to navigate. Any firm can have a pretty website, but that doesn’t guarantee good service. A law professional still can’t know if the firm they booked will actually deliver—at least, not without the NNRC.
The National Network of Reporting Companies (NNRC) formed in 1983 to make that search a little easier. Five leading firms in the court reporting industry knew that what clients want is not only excellent reporting quality, but firms that meet and exceed their needs. With these needs in mind, the five firms joined together to create a company that ensured that any law professional across the United States can look to them and know they are getting the best court reporters or litigation services possible.
Since then, the NNRC has expanded to encompass 55 court reporting firms not only in the United States, but Canada and Europe as well. Though the NNRC has grown 11 times it’s original size, their original model of business has not changed. The NNRC still vows to offer law professionals top-of-the-line court reporting firms while providing excellent customer service.
It’s the NNRC’s online booking service and court reporters directory that put them above the rest. All a law professional has to do is click the tab “Book Online,” select which services they require, fill in some information about themself and the case, and submit. If the professional would like to get a little more specific in their request, however, they can turn to the court reporters directory and find a service near them. A law professional can search by their location, a court reporting firm’s name, or even by the name of a certain court reporter they would like to work with.
Potential members of the NNRC must be recommended. They undergo an intensive vetting process to assure their equipment is state-of-the-art, their reporters are accurate, timely, and professional, they have global video depositions and conferencing services, they have proven experience in meeting litigation support needs, and that their reputation for customer service is responsive and next to no one.
With the NNRC’s seal of approval, quality court reporting firms are getting the business they deserve. In Phoenix, Arizona, Coash & Coash has been open for 35 years. In their area, their repute is strong, but their partnership with the NNRC has opened even more doors for them. Anderson Reporting in Columbus, Ohio has been open over three decades as well, and as one of the founding firms of their NNRC, their business has flourished. The same can be said for Beovich, Walter, & Friend in Portland, Oregon. Even after 30 years with open doors, their firm is still growing.
These firms can call upon their membership with the NNRC in order to confirm that they are, in fact, the best of the best. Simultaneously, with each quality firm the NNRC covers under their wings, their reputation grows more and more prestigious. After so many years of being a premiere business for law professionals to turn to, the NNRC has become one of the leading court reporting directories. Their easy to navigate website, convenient booking engine, and compiling of talented reporting agencies are what lead attorneys to come back time and time again.
