As courts throughout California cut back on their court reporters, private court reporting companies offer alternative avenues for employment and the chance to work with highly experienced legal professionals.
One such firm is Southern California-based Aptus Court Reporting. The company hires top-notch court reporters to provide stenotype services, including realtime reporting. Aptus offers online scheduling for its clients along with location research and even complimentary mediation/trial conference rooms.
Clients can access their transcripts, exhibits, and invoices online, thus saving time on administration and reducing the need for staff members to learn new technology. These services are critical for litigation, since many municipalities in California have limited their court reporting to criminal hearings and civil cases.
Aptus Court Reporting is continuing its expansion in Northern California by opening an office in Sacramento. Court reporting veteran Johnny Bateman who has been working in Sacramento’s legal field for more than 13 years will head the expansion.
The Sacramento area is a hotbed of litigation, and law firms in the area need the high-quality court reporters that this company can provide. The greater Sacramento area is the home of a number of law firms including national, international, and boutique firms. Prominent legal practices in the area include administrative law, construction defect, environmental law, labor and employment, and corporate law.
Aptus Court Reporting recently opened an office in Riverside to serve the Inland Empire. The firm’s headquarters are in San Diego, and it also has offices in San Francisco and Irvine. In addition, the company handles international operations from all of its offices. In early 2015, San Diego veteran court reporting company Fivecoat & With merged with Aptus Court Reporting and brings nearly 40 years of experience to the merger.
