Esquire offers court reporters, videographers, and interpreters the benefits and work opportunities of a large organization while maintaining an emphasis on personalized service and close working relationships. Your talent, dedication, and contributions to the reporting profession do not go unnoticed, and we are grateful that you always deliver top-notch professional services. It is both a privilege and a pleasure to count on you as a trusted partner.
A dedicated Esquire team member is always available to answer questions about job turn-in, invoices, and NetSuite. We’ve also developed a unique court reporter program to support new reporters, reward our highest-performing reporters, and encourage referrals to Esquire.
Court reporters who consistently strive to improve their skills and provide exceptional customer service deserve to be recognized for their achievements. We honor excellence in the profession by naming a Court Reporter of the Year and several Court Reporters of the Quarter, each of whom receive gift cards that can be used for continuing education credits, reporting equipment, or any item of their choice. Court reporters who do not earn one of these titles in a given year can still win gift cards in a regular rewards drawing.
Starting with a national firm can be intimidating, especially for new court reporters. Our mentoring program eases the transition by pairing new court reporters with more experienced peers during their first few weeks, helping them acquire the knowledge, skills, and expertise crucial to their success. Mentors will proofread new court reporters’ transcripts before submission to ensure their accuracy and complete biweekly progress reports to provide direction for their mentees.
Internships and Externships for Court Reporting Students
Court reporters are required to participate in internship programs to graduate. Shadowing experienced reporters on the job and observing what depositions are really like firsthand are necessary and invaluable steps toward serving depositions successfully as a new court reporter. Learning opportunities include:
- Handling readbacks
- Working with attorneys
- When to stop a proceeding
- Marking exhibits
- Submitting transcripts
Experienced court reporters who support mentoring and internship programs are eligible to receive a participation fee.

Data Security - What Every Court Reporter Needs to Know to Safeguard the Record
On-demand, prerecorded webinar. NCRA-approved. Earn 0.10 CEU Credits.
As a “Guardian of the Record,” competent transcription requires court reporters to provide protection for sensitive client information. Court reporters routinely exchange volumes of confidential business and personal information, financial data, trade secrets, and more. With hackers aggressively targeting law firms’ data, we urge you to hold yourself to high security standards.
Esquire is supporting this effort by presenting an informative webinar on “Data Security: What Every Court Reporter Needs to Know to Safeguard the Record.” Please join us for this complimentary, NCRA-approved educational opportunity and receive 0.10 CEU credits.
