From Court Reporter to Court Reporter Scheduler: An Interview with Jane Norman, RPR
By Jan Ballman FAPR, RPR, CMRS; Veritext-Minneapolis

Excerpt: "After spending four decades reporting legal proceedings as a freelance court reporter, Jane Norman, RPR, was contemplating retiring from active reporting. The "wear-and-tear” was starting to take its toll. After a passing conversation with Jan Ballman (owner of the court reporting agency at the time), Jane made the decision to give office life a try and put her extensive industry experience to new use as a court reporter scheduler."

🤔A QUESTION FOR OUR PARTNERS: What do you do if there is a surprise expedite?

Click through to see what Joe Grabowski, RMR suggests: http://ow.ly/NNEJ50AWOvM

Excerpt: "I always made it a practice to ask attorneys individually before we start or during a break if there is a chance they’ll need expedited delivery. It is especially good to know about an expedite if I happen to be sitting on a backlog of transcripts, some of which are already expedited, and/or have plans that will tie me up for a period of time."

An excerpt: "It didn’t take long for everyone to realize it was going to be a while before we would be back in conference rooms and therefore any depositions going forward were going to have to occur “virtually.” Court reporters and videographers wasted little time signing up for webinars, ordering headsets, web cameras, an extra laptop—whatever it took to ready themselves to execute the new game plan."
