Scopist & Proofreader`s Corner
I get lots of inquiries from scopists around the country about working with me and my court reporters. It's clear from my full email inbox, however, that I'm not very efficient at responding to each and every one that I would like to. It's getting harder and harder to give everyone the time and attention they deserve. So I've decided to add this page -- Scopists' Corner -- to the site in an effort to be able to post people's information and share these scopists with the rest of steno-dom.
Obviously, I haven't worked with them all so I'm not vouching here. Just sharing...
I am a proofreader in the San Diego, California area. Although I am in San Diego and because of our wonderful technology that we have today, it allows me to work with any court reporter in any part of the country. Currently, I have court reporters that I proofread for in San Diego, Los Angeles, South Carolina, New York and Boston. I love proofreading. I have been a proofreader for several years. I am also a legal assistant in a prestigious law firm in San Diego. Court reporters send me their depositions via e-mail, I proofread the depositions and then send the corrections back to the court reporter via an errata sheet.

My name is Heidi Dillon and I am seeking employment as a scopist and/or proofreader. Although I have been scoping and proofreading for the past three months, I have 19 years experience in the legal field. I was a paralegal for 19 years and enjoyed it. Recently, however, I completed the Phoenix Theory with the Assistance of a mentor and have discovered the joy of working from home for court reporters. I’m a fast learner, hard worker and have a great turn around time. I am attentive to detail and I listen to audio line by line. It’s important to me to produce a great product and have my work in on time. I use Case Catalyst along with Express Scribe. I also have high-speed Internet and can easily be reached by telephone for a rush job. If I sound like the kind of person you need, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you. Reply email: hhjdillon (at) yahoo (dot) com
I have been a scopist for 10 years, and would love to make your life easier as a reporter. My software is Digital Cat, and I worked directly with the designer of the software as his scopist until he temporarily moved to Florida. In his office, I also worked as his editing manager with gaining experience getting his depositions copy ready that was invaluable. I've had two years in court reporting school, and love working from home. I listen to all transcripts unless instructed not to, proof for accuracy, and I'm willing to do it your way. Expedites are not a problem! Contact me at rebaburgess (at) verizon (dot) net as I check my email several times daily.
