"Hi! My name is Nancy Laporte. I am on CaseCat. I have been a court reporter for 35 years; most of it freelancing, five years as an official. Anyone in need of a scopist' or proofreader, I'm ready, willing and able."
I have been a freelance court reporter for 35 years. The last five years of that 35, I served as an official reporter in the 24th JDC for the Parish of Jefferson in Louisiana. New Orleans has just about every subject a court…"
Just trying to locate some people local to me on CSR Nation.
I live in Walker and am a new Eclipse scopist. I was born in New Orleans, though, and my daughter works there, too, for Northrop Grumman as an industrial engineer.
I got laid off at the beginning of the summer (along with attorneys and other secretaries) from a major LA law firm with offices in BR, NO, and Laf (initials JW) and decided to go and get trained as a scopist. I studied to be a reporter a long time ago but changed my mind, so I thought scoping sounded like a good option with the job market being what it is right now and with my background.
Anyway, just wanted to stop by and introduce myself.
If you guys ever get in a bind and need something covered north of the lake and east of the river, feel free to contact me. (Slidell, Covington, Hammond, Baton Rouge.) I'm off to bed now. I hope you're not working too hard tonight :-)
Hi, Nancy. I see you're fairly new to CSRnation. I just thought I'd stop by your page and introduce myself. I live in Hammond and freelance for different firms (New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette). I've definitely been busy this year, but things are starting to slow down enough that I can finally take a breath. You?
