Our Clients

Midwest Reporters, Inc. caters to legal secretaries, attorneys/lawyers, and other legal industry members who need our expert services for arbitration, litigation, hearings, or trials. We’ve earned our excellent reputation in the legal community by delivering perfectly accurate court reporting and compelling video depositions.

Whether you need a medical deposition, a technical deposition, or a forensic deposition, our production crew captures vital testimony in telepresence-quality that’s proven to impact juries, judges, and arbitrators. Our certified videographers and personal representatives are trained to put witnesses at ease the moment they enter our comfortable deposition suites because we understand comfort is crucial to the deposition process. Our clients agree that a relaxed witness is far more likely to provide honest, and engaging testimony that’s so often the key to winning a judgment or case.
