Ask Brenda Peterson to tell you how she's built her business into one of the largest independently owned court reporting and video services in Southern California, and you won't hear her recite the typical roster of impressive law firms.
Instead, she will happily tell you that her first client, a partner in a San Diego law firm, encouraged her to begin her business 19 years ago and is still with her. And, she'll add that her first employee, her office manager, Barbara, just recently retired after 18 years of service.
"I measure success by the quality of relationships we've built," Peterson said.
To Peterson, success is about the relationships established with clients, reporters and employees. Those relationships have been maintained by being competent, flexible and accommodating. Her clients, for example, trust Peterson to deliver top-notch reporting and video services, and her court reporters rely on the entire staff's ability to manage schedules and satisfy clients.
Founded in 1986 by Peterson, Peterson & Associates Court Reporting & Video Services now has more than 50 reporters on staff providing court reporting, deposition and video litigation services to more than 500 attorneys throughout California.
Based in San Diego, the company has court reporters in Los Angeles, Riverside and Orange counties. The company has also built a national and international network of affiliate court reporters and videographers available to take depositions on 24-hour notice.
According to Peterson, they are busy booking depositions in Europe and around the world with increasing frequency.
Peterson & Associates Court Reporting and Video Services specializes in bringing the latest computer and technological advancements to court reporting and video proceedings.
For example, depositions can be easily booked online at www.bookadepo.com, and all transcripts are archived and available online via the attorney's private password. All depositions are taken utilizing laptops with real-time conferencing capabilities.
At their 4,500-square-foot headquarters located at the Union Bank of California Building in downtown San Diego, Peterson & Associates Court Reporting and Video Services provides conference capabilities to their client attorneys, free of charge. They routinely offer clients use of their computer-networked conference center that provides the capabilities to observe and participate in a real-time Internet deposition.
Real-time computer-networked court reporting, 24-hour manned phone lines and worldwide services are just a few of the reasons why Peterson & Associates Court Reporting and Video Services has grown into one of the largest independently owned court reporting services in California.
