Our Testimonials

Erik Connolly

Benesch Law

“Thompson Court Reporters is outstanding from start to finish. The pre-deposition coordination is flawless, the real time reporting is among the best I have seen, and the final product is delivered on time and without a hitch. I have used Thompson for depositions in Chicago, out of state and out of the country. I have used Thompson to coordinate cases with a handful of depositions and just two parties as well as cases with dozens of depositions, multiple parties and double-tracking depositions. On each occasion, regardless of the size of the case or the demands of the parties, the service has been great. Thompson is responsive, accurate and quick.”


Patricia Ellington

Miller Canfield

Having worked as a litigation secretary for over 20 years, I find the availability of Thompson Court Reporters to be outstanding, I am always able to reach someone to schedule a court reporter or videographer. Thompson Court Reporters is not just a 9:00 to 5:00 business; they understand the last-minute nature of litigation.”


Dan Tarpey

Tarpey Wix

I recently had a marathon deposition in Boston which was extremely contentious. Not only was the Thompson court reporter extremely gracious and accommodating, her professionalism in a very tough situation was unparalleled. She took charge of a fiery situation and her legal knowledge of what was required of a court reporter in such circumstances was truly impressive but quite typical of Thompson court reporters I have worked with over the years. In eight hours of testimony during which the lawyers and witness consistently talked over each other, at times with increasing volume, the transcript turned out crystal clear and turnaround time under a tight deadline was even better than expected.”


Chuck Baum

I’ve had no such problems with Thompson Court Reporters. No matter where or when, Thompson has been able to supply timely, quality service. I don’t use anyone else.”

Russ Goddard

Robinson Legal Offices

Finding a reliable, competent court reporter from 500 miles away isn’t an easy task. I did what everyone does, I Googled it and found several court reporting firms. I tried several firms, but few answered and those that did, did not inspire my confidence. I should have called Thompson first. Their professional reponse, knowledgeable staff, and thoroughness really made me feel like I could trust them to get the job done. I wasn’t disappointed, Thompson showed up on time and did a quality job. Don’t waste your time anywhere else.”


Lisa Gale

LaMarca & Landry

Always a daunting task when needing to secure a court reporter out of state. I am a big Google fan, so that is where I went to find a court reporter in or around Naperville, Illinois. The first firm I called, I had to leave a voice-mail message. Several days went by, and I never received a call back. I called Thompson Reporters, and I had it booked the same day I called. I should have called them in the first place! Everything was perfect using them!! Would highly recommend and would definitely use them again, if the need were ever to arise!”

Michael Cohen

Bainton McCarthy

When I called from New York at 7 p.m. on a summer Friday looking for a reporter for a deposition in Chicago the following Monday, I wasn’t surprised when the first ten reporters I called didn’t pick up their phones. But Thompson Court Reporters did — and that made all the difference. Their reporter arrived on time and performed flawlessly. More importantly, I saved myself from a weekend of long-distance worrying. That’s what I call dependable service.”
