About the Reporters

Our reporters are highly skilled at deposition work, both medical, technical and construction-related matters and can produce rough drafts or expedited delivery upon request.  We also cover arbitrations, public hearings, grand jury, town court matters and trials.

In order to cut down on paper waste, AMF uses the Min-U-Script program. This provides electronic PDF files with an embedded and searchable word index, digitally signed and certified by the reporter, sent via email. Exhibits can also be scanned, electronically attached to,  and linked within, the transcript.
