court reporting agency said...

Yes, there are pros and cons for this. But I would just like to say that these court reporters studied almost how many years to practice and be able to achieve their goal in a court reporting agency. Maybe we can try getting both tape recorders and these court reports. So we have double assurance of the things that has been said and done in the court.
