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 service provider.
A dedicated Esquire team member is always available to answer questions about job turn-in, invoices, and NetSuite. Our new Order Entry Wizard makes turning in jobs easy and fast. We’ve also developed a unique court reporter program to support new reporters, reward our highest-performing reporters, and encourage referrals to Esquire.
At Esquire, we value service providers who Get It Right the first time every time. It is our goal to recognize those who consistently strive to improve their skills and provide exceptional customer service. We honor excellence in the profession by rewarding two $500 Court Reporter of the Year Rewards (one for each region), as well two $250 runner-ups. Every quarter, we also reward 28 Court Reporters of the Quarter,
each of whom receives a $50 Tango e-gift card. Winners are selected by each office. The selection criteria used are based on the number of jobs taken, on-time turn-in, teamwork, and feedback from clients.
Tango e-gift cards are utilized to reward our reporters for their hard work. A winner is able to customize their reward by choosing from over 70 retailers! Alternatively, a winner can choose to donate their reward to one of over 20 nonprofit organizations.
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.

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.
