Our Story

"Is it possible to give clients the personalized feel of a small business and still grow to be a big one?"

You’re on a tight deadline, and there’s no room for error. You don’t have time to wait on hold. You need action, and you need it now. We understand, and that’s why we created J.D. Court Reporting – for people like you. With J.D. Court Reporting you get the access you want and the services you need at the best value.

That was the question I had when I decided to start J.D. Court Reporting. Very early on in my career as a paralegal while working for a small firm, I could clearly see a trade-off between the two. It appeared you couldn’t have both. So I created J.D Court Reporting with the intention to give both the access and convenience of a small firm with all the services and reach of a large firm.

How do we raise the bar?
