NNRC Territory that your company serves: With our headquarters based in St. Louis, we have an additional 12 regional offices throughout Missouri, Illinois and Arkansas, in addition to our global coverage for out-of-state clients.

How long has your firm been in business? Since 1985

What do you like to tell prospective clients about what your firm does best?

We have focused on fulfilling one goal: to be the most technologically advanced single-source court reporting, video and trial support provider in the country. A single phone call fills all your pre-trial and post-trial needs. Any need. Any where. Any time. A Midwest Litigation court reporter is always on call. Your deposition and trial support needs are our priority.

What is an example of how you’ve collaborated with a NNRC partner to help out a client?

Recently, we worked with Benchmark Reporting on a complex tight margin case with great success. NNRC has allowed the two firms to create a close relationship, which in turn allowed us to easily work out a rate structure that benefitted all parties while maintaining a high level of service to the client in not only the region, but overseas. Due to the high level of service Benchmark’s court reporters provided to our clients, they were asked to travel to Hong Kong on two separate occasions to cover some of the most crucial depositions in the litigation.

What do you like best about your job?

There are many things that I like about my career. First, there is never a dull moment. There is always room for improvement and growth within my company to better serve the legal community. Second, as an entrepreneur, I am always challenged, and I need that. I also get to work with great people, not only speaking of my clients, the attorneys and their support staff, but the Midwest people as well. I firmly believe our people are our biggest asset.

How do your services make a difference for your clients or the legal system?

There are two key things that I believe are important to our clients, beyond the quality services that they come to us for. First, we have developed a concierge approach to our business. We aim to make our clients’ lives as easy as possible, whatever their needs: lunch service, local transportation or anything else that we can do for them. Secondly, we use cutting-edge technology and are continually expanding our product and service offerings so our clients can get everything they need by making just one call.

When you aren’t working, how would you describe the perfect day for you?

I really enjoy being active, especially with friends and family. One of my favorite events is the Hood to Coast race, which is a 199-mile relay race through Oregon and is one of the longest and oldest relay races in the world. Sailing is also a big part of my life, whether it be locally at our lake or in the islands. I would describe my life as ever-changing, hectic at times, and loving.

Where do you volunteer or how do you give back to the community?

Supporting many charitable organizations is part and parcel of the MLS culture, but my favorites are the ones that give back to children. For example, every year the Motion for Kids Holiday Party provides thousands of less privileged kids with gifts, food, the chance to meet Santa, and so much more. For over 20 years Midwest Litigation Services has hosted the “Santa Station” with volunteer “Santas” recruited from the legal community. Other organizations that we support include the Let’s Start Foundation, Read Across America, Forest ReLeaf, the Women in the Legal Profession Suit Drive, and many more.

We also recently announced the Dollars for Depositions program, which provides up to $21,000 in funding for deposition services for the Missouri Coalition for the Right to Counsel (MCRC), a non-profit partnership that allows young attorneys to gain case and trial experience by taking on cases from the public defender’s office on a volunteer basis, thus helping to ease their caseload.
