It is not enough to say that you have got “experienced court reporters” on your staff.  Seattle attorneys in-the-know understand that there are different levels of court reporting experience and realize the value of having a more advanced Registered Merit Reporter or Registered Diplomat Reporter on their case. NAEGELI’s Seattle Court Reporting Division is staffed with a wide assortment of registered court reporters, including:

  • Registered Professional Reporters 

    – the first level of court reporters with professional training

  • Registered Merit Reporters

    – the second level of court reporters with professional training

  • Registered Diplomat Reporters

    – the third level of court reporters with professional training

Each of these registration levels requires extensive hours of work as a court reporter in Seattle, WA and increasingly rigorous testing requirements. This guarantees that the

reporter sitting in your hearing, deposition or arbitration is competent to provide transcripts of your proceedings with fewer interruptions than a less-experienced court reporter.
Certification for Registered Merit Reporters and Registered Diplomat Reporters is provided by the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA), which ensures that every court reporter that it certifies is a well-trained professional. In order to become a Registered Diplomat Reporter, one must be a Registered Merit Reporter and serve for six continuous years with the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA). Each Registered Merit Reporter at NAEGELI is guaranteed to record live verbal testimony at a rate of 260 words per minute and a jury charge at 240 words per minute.

Certified CART Providers are taught to use a stenography machine, which is connected to software enabling them to type at speeds in excess of 260 words per minute.

  • An audio source, such as VOIP
  • An internet connection
  • A computer or smart phone

Seattle is located between Lake Washington and Puget Sound. Nicknamed The Emerald City, Seattle boasts an abundance of evergreen trees and spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains to the west and the Cascade Mountains to the east. Seattle is a cosmopolitan city where the arts thrive and outdoor pursuits are a part of city life. While the proliferation of downtown parks means that a stretch of grass is never far away, Seattle's infamous rain sometimes drives the public indoors to the numerous educational and entertaining attractions that make Seattle such a great destination. Because it is the largest city in Washington State, visitors sometimes think it is also the capital, however, the state's capital is actually the nearby city of Olympia. Seattle is the seat of King County.

The King County Courthouse and the Municipal Court of Seattle are located just minutes from our office.
