5 Characteristics of Well-Respected Court Reporters

5 Characteristics of Well-Respected Court Reporters

The Georgia court reporters at Elizabeth Gallo Court Reporting, LLC all have several things in common, but the easiest way to boil this down is tocourtroom say that we are all good people. Every industry is about its people, and that’s no different in the court reporting world. The people who work with us understand their roles and they fully understand and respect their importance to the whole legal process. There have been many times in the past and there will be many times in the future when the performance of a court reporter can make all of the difference in terms of an ultimate result.

Elizabeth Gallo Court Reporting, LLC tends to look for certain characteristics in our Atlanta court reporters, but below are five qualities that anyone who works with our firm can fully expect to experience when one of our team members handles a case:

1. Organization
Court reporters have a lot to handle with every case that they work. They need to make sure that their equipment is set up properly, that they have everything in place to perform and that they are able to fully deliver the transcript as promised. That means that our court reporters need to be extremely organized, as a lack of organization slows everyone down.

2. Punctuality
Even those of us who are not connected to the legal world have seen television shows and movies where a judge gets angry when an attorney is late for a proceeding. That is especially true for a court reporter, as nothing can be done unless an official record is being kept, and that record is dependent upon the presence of that court reporter. Our people are on time and ready to go.

3. Focus
Anyone who has seen a trial can relate to the observation that there is a lot going on at any given time in a courtroom. Witnesses are being questioned, evidence is being offered, objections are being made and arguments are being advanced. All of this needs to appear on the record, which means that court reporters cannot be distracted by anything.

4. Objectivity
The legal community in Atlanta is like it is anywhere else in that people tend to get to know each other over time. While friendships can be formed and often are, that should never affect the performance of a court reporter. Our court reporters approach every case in the same manner regardless of who else is working on it.

5. Friendliness
Litigation is stressful for everyone involved. Jurors are not completely familiar with what needs to be done, attorneys are concerned with the result, witnesses are trying to make sure that they give proper testimony and the parties to the case have a lot on the line. That can lead to tension, which is why a good court reporter simply needs to be pleasant and friendly.
