Our Company

Our Journey

The Ohio Reporting Company was founded in 1976 by Alice J. Ballard, and it has operated without interruption since that time. The firm is a full-service, technology-driven court reporting firm with exceedingly high standards, which sets this firm apart from other firms that operate as independent contractors. Accuracy, timely delivery, and professional service to clients are our top priorities. High standards are maintained through ongoing quality assurance programs and continuous formal training sessions for court reporters, videographers, and administrative staff. Quality service and vast experience with complex, high-profile litigation have satisfied Ohio Reporting clients for over three decades. Originally founded by a tight-knit group of court reporters, The Ohio Reporting Company has grown to provide service to attorneys, major law firms, state and federal governments and courts, and major corporations throughout the world.

The Ohio Reporting Company is an employee-based firm with Court Reporters, Realtime, Captioning and Conference Reporters, Certified Legal Videographers & Video Depositions, and Administrative Support Staff. Because of the full-time employee status of our firm, rather than the usual independent contractor status in the court reporting profession, our staff reporters are available for reporting assignments immediately, upon the client’s request, with total transcript retention, case management, and quality control of a secured repository.

As owners, we know our livelihood depends on your continued business. To maintain that, we can’t let you down because even the most minor problem with the accuracy and delivery of your transcripts could seriously impact you and your clients.

We have built a solid reputation over the last thirty years through a staff of certified, experienced and dependable reporters that consistently excel in servicing our clients with the utmost accuracy and expediency. Our goal is to provide the most technologically advanced services available by our highly trained reporters. Our experienced staff, with over 80 combined years at Kentuckiana, is dedicated to delivering a personalized service that is unparalleled in the court reporting and legal video industry. Our primary goal is your satisfaction

Whether your case is large or small, we strive to provide every service necessary to make your litigation go as smoothly as possible. With expert support you can rely on, you can devote your time and energy on what really matters—your client’s case.
