The Directory of Choice for Court Reporting Firms

When it comes to court reporters, picking the right company or lone practitioner for a case is not always so obvious, particularly for attorneys who need to travel across the state or the nation.

Our team has researched the top court reporter directories online in an effort to provide our readers with a comprehensive review of their options. The winner, hands down, is the National Network Reporting Company (NNRC). Their court reporter directory is searchable in a number of ways and includes a number of superb legal resources ranging from a blog on legal news to an Areas of Practice section for various types of legal professionals.

Even more impressive is the NNRC blog which acts as both a legal news source and an index of newly-created pages and other content for the entirety of the site.

NNRC is one of the nation’s oldest court reporting organizations with a very high standard of services and inter-member cooperation. For court reporting professionals the NNRC list of resources is a superb index of articles and documents on the latest trends, technologies and events within the reporting and litigation support industries.

Elder Care Attorney Mark Shalloway Leading the Way on Pro Bono Service

The importance of pro bono services for attorneys, particularly smaller law firms and single practice professionals, cannot be over-stated. There is both a personal reward of gratification and a communal sense of accomplishment and philanthropy in giving one’s services to those less fortunate.

Mark Shalloway, an elder care and wills & trusts attorney in West Palm Beach, Florida is one strong example of leading the way in pro bono services with his free community seminars. The classes are informational sessions to help men and women from all walks of life learn more about the intricacies of caring for the elderly,  insurance requirements, estate planning, caring for special needs loved ones and many other topics.

The seminars are free and open to the public and have been very warmly-received by the area legal community. The sessions are usually held at various community centers and include question/answer sessions with the Firm’s President, G. Mark Shalloway.

With the skyrocketing costs of senior care and the very real world concerns of legal and insurance requirements, children and parents both benefit from these endeavors by the firm.

Interestingly enough, as a result of the Shalloway & Shalloway project, the firm’s free seminars have also attained media coverage, a bit of windfall in the process of helping one’s community.

The firm’s seminar page is a great way to start learning about their pro bono work. It serves as a good example of utilizing the web to improve one’s web presence in the process.
