Since 1983, Asheville Reporting Service's court reporters have been serving the legal communities of North and South Carolina, covering depositions and sworn statements in civil, criminal, Industrial Commission and administrative matters.  Our reporters can travel to your off-site location, or we can schedule your court reporters, site locations, interpreters and videography services anywhere you need to be.  Let us make your job easier.  Ask us to coordinate your next legal proceeding.

Asheville Reporting Service has years of court reporter experience, covering hearings of every nature. You name it, we’ve reported it, ranging from government-sponsored hearings such as National Advisory Council on Migrant Health Hearings (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), Department of Agriculture Fish and Wildlife hearings on endangered species and critical habitats, the North Shore Road EIS public hearings (U.S. Department of the Interior), to state-level hearings such as Employment Security Commission, Department of Transportation, OSHA grievance hearings, and Union arbitration proceedings. On a more local level, Asheville Reporting Service has covered a wide variety of proceedings ranging from city and town council meetings, to employee grievance hearings at universities and hospitals, to local homeowner’s association meetings. We have also worked for large corporations and research entities from time to time, reporting and transcribing their focus group interviews.

In today's litigious atmosphere, many times it is appropriate to preserve deposition testimony in video format for later use at trial.  We are happy to provide our own professional, cutting-edge legal video services to our clients. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology and professionally trained videographers, we can ensure you a final product that is professional and certified.  We can provide you with any video format you need:  VHS cassettes, CDs and DVDs, with text synchronization, if needed. Be sure to ask about videography at Asheville Reporting Services.  

Since North Carolina eliminated official court reporters from the district court level, proceedings have been recorded by the clerk. That leaves appellate attorneys the challenge of having that transcribed. Asheville Reporting Service has both the necessary equipment and the resources to produce that transcript. If we can hear it, we’ll transcribe it -- although we strongly advocate hiring a court reporter to attend the proceedings, as it’s the only way we can guarantee accuracy.

Although the majority of our work is outside the courtroom, we are always ready to cover District and Superior Court proceedings, and have been involved in many high-profile cases such as the Union-Butterfield matter in Buncombe County and the Jackson County case against the Sylva Seven. Asheville Reporting Service has a contract with the Department of Justice to report all of the Grand Jury proceedings in the Western District and for many years, Asheville Reporting Service has covered the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians’ tribal meetings. We have also assisted the U.S. government with transcription in investigations of criminal matters.

Our transcripts attest to the high standards we set as court reporters, both in accuracy and in readability. We make available the increasingly popular E-transcript, which is even better than an ASCII file, and can be used with all sorts of litigation software. Today, more than 70 percent of the court reporting industry uses this technology.

OTHER SERVICES AVAILABLE : Condensed transcripts, word Indexing, ASCII disks.

We have Spanish fluent reporters on-site, and can arrange interpreting services for whatever other language or dialect you require.
