Founded in 1997 by Kirsty Schouweiler, RPR, First Choice Reporting & Video Services is currently a leading force in the court reporting industry with offices throughout the State of Florida and a worldwide affiliate network. First Choice Reporting’s success is a result of their top-quality work product, cutting-edge technology and their devotion to excellent customer service.
“We couldn’t be more energized about the merger,” said Kirsty Schouweiler, President and CEO. “Mergers are like marriages; you need to make sure that your ideas, philosophies and aspirations are all in line with each other. When you finally find ‘the one,’ you better not let that one get away. Once we recognized those attributes in Network Reporting, it was a natural decision to combine forces. This merger will allow us to expand our already significant penetration in the court reporting industry. Service is paramount in our industry. From the court reporters to the support staff, we have the best of the best!”
Founded in 2003, Network Reporting is a family business owned by second-generation court reporter, Rick Levy, RPR. Rick has held many committee positions with the National Court Reporters Association as well as officer positions with the Florida Court Reporters Association.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to join forces with a well-established and highly-reputable court reporting firm with great leadership,” said Rick Levy, who has known Kirsty Schouweiler since 2008. “I have received numerous offers from other court reporting firms to merge my business, but this is the first time it has felt right. We share the same vision, and I am looking forward to growing the business. We will continue to provide our clients with excellent service, the latest technology and all the customer support they need to be successful from file to trial.”
