Court Reporting, Medical Records Retrieval and Document Scanning -

TIP #1:Never Lose Your Keys Again

No more searching the office for a file. We can scan your records to a disk with keyword search engine for review.

TIP #2:It's Like Having Daddy's Credit Card

Giving us a pre-set approval for custodian fees expedites the process. Don't worry, we promise not to shop at Neiman Marcus.

TIP #3:More Time To Do What You Want

We can research your record request at a low hourly rate freeing the paralegal for more important tasks, like finding your boss.

TIP #4:Court Reporters Get Hungry Too

In depos, don't forget the reporter when ordering lunch. They can't eat and report at the same time.

TIP #5:Pens Should Be Seen, Not Heard

In depositions don't repeatedly push in and out the tops of retractable pens. If you're that nervous, you should try yoga.

TIP #6:The One Second Rule

Give the reporter one second between the end of the answer and your next question. Otherwise, don't talk a mile a minute.

About Us

Reporting & Records. Simplified.

The Simpler Side of Life.

The Simpler Side of Life
You have enough to think about in your busy day. You should never have to call for a status on a deposition or record that you need. It’s about more than just getting your stuff. You want to work with friendly people who appreciate you.

Charlotte has been around for 40 years, and we take pride in the fact that everything we do is geared toward making your life simple. The thing we are most proud, however, is our ability to deliver this simple approach to court reporting and document retrieval with a personal touch.
"Charlotte has been a trusted advisor for litigation
attorneys since 1967."

Our Story

Why most of our employees have been with us over 15 years.

You can trace our roots back to one woman, Charlotte Smith. She was a true pioneer. In a time where women were not business owners, she believed in herself enough to create a premier court reporting firm. A foundation was laid with principles like passion, attention to detail, keeping things simple and always listening to what clients want. She was seen as a trusted advisor, an advocate for her clients. Working with Charlotte was always a joy and that is why a good percentage of our staff has been with us for over 15 years. Even though she has passed on, we live and breathe what she believed.
