Kyung - I just read your essay in the DRA newsletter about negotiating rates. I agree 100 percent, and I follow those practices also. I hope your essay is widely read by all reporters. I meet so many, especially the younger ones, that just take what is handed out and never inquire about what they're going to be paid. Some agencies are nickel and diming us to death! There's one from Northern California that at first refused to reimburse for parking (in downtown LA!), but I see recently now does pay, but only to $25 - even when the bill is $38 to $40! Then there are a few that subtract one page from the total page count, because you didn't actually report the cert page. I feel like leaving it off my transcripts, then. Hold the line!
Sorry it took so long to write back. I moved from Southern California to the Oregon Coast. Murphy's Law, too! I would love to help you out.. Please email me at darcylingenfelser52@gmail. Also, my cell is 530-925-3261. Margie Wakeman-Wells was my English teacher. 27 yrs. a reporter. I'm looking forward to talking with you.
I have worked for US Legal in San Fran and they are fine; you will get paid. I have a different issue with them, but nothing that would affect you I don't think.
I just took this really good job for them and one of the attorneys never paid, but they paid me and then I got a 1099 for the money for tax time, which means they wrote the money off, and then for the next two years they took chunks of money from my check to get the money back $4,000. I finally said enough. Have not worked for them since.
Thanks, Kyung. I knew I'd seen her name but couldn't remember positive or negative. I just took a networked job from her for one of my regular firms so wasn't worried about getting paid, but wanted to give my firm a warning if necessary.
hi there. do you know anyone who can tell me how to have "steno only" showing in eclipse? I want to start doing readbacks, and I am paperless so I don't want to see translation on screen. thanks so much.
I was thinking about changing the colors on the face page of the site. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for me? I did not want it too girly. I wanted some colors that almost everyone would appreciate. Do you have any ideas for me?
