Polished Proofreading

Proofreading for court reporters

 

Court reporters love their jobs and know how vital they are in the legal process. They pride themselves on their hard work that leads to consistently high-quality results. I pride myself in being a part of this process and integrating into the court reporter, scopist, and proofreader team that allows each member to focus on what they are best at and what they are most inspired by. Court reporters, wouldn’t you prefer to come home satisfied from a good day’s work and have complete peace of mind. No more late nights, trying to finish off the editing because the deadline is in the morning. You can focus on the next day’s objectives and relax while I finish off those transcripts that you have already read through before. As a proofreader, I customize my proofreading style especially for you and make a pledge that the longer we interact, the more I will improve, learn, and hone my skills to your specific proofreading preferences. I look forward to starting our new relationship.

I know that, because your reputation relies on a high-quality finish every time, it can be scary to relinquish control; and so I offer *50% off for first-time clients* to test out my service. I’m confident I can put your mind at ease after the first job.
