My colleagues always asked me to proofread their work before it was published. I tend to easily spot spelling and grammar errors in printed materials. And mistakes published publicly by large companies really irk me! It was only natural that I become a professional proofreader. Now I use my top-notch proofreading skills to help court reporters polish their legal transcripts.
I understand the demands placed on court reporters. You must accurately record the spoken word while maintaining a clean, readable record. And your time is precious. Let me help you reclaim some of that time by proofreading your legal transcripts. I carefully read every word of transcripts, reviewing them for consistency, accuracy, and context according to each court reporter’s personal style and specifications.
A court reporter’s job is never easy, but let me make your job a little easier by proofreading your transcripts.

My Special Interests or Hobbies:
When I’m not proofreading transcripts, I’m rooting for my husband as he referees high school basketball games, reading books with my daughter, or playing cars with my son. I also enjoy studying the Bible, watching “I Love Lucy,” reading mystery novels, and cross-stitching.
▪ I proofread all types of legal transcripts, including depositions, examinations under oath, hearings, and trials.
▪ I proofread using Morson’s English Guide for Court Reporters, Court Reporting: Bad Grammar/Good Punctuation, Merriam-Webster Dictionary, and Google. Let me know if you prefer additional reference guides.
▪ I provide suggestions directly in the PDF file you send to me. I return only the annotated pages in PDF to you via email.
▪ Besides proofreading transcripts, I also offer writing, editing, and marketing services to small business owners. I can help you polish your written creations, including blog posts, articles, eBooks, brochures, and more. I’ll use my eagle eyes to help you make your words shine and reach your target audience.
