Court Reporters

General Info

California Rules of Court, Rule 2.956 and Nevada County Local Rules, Chapter 10 set forth what type of matters will typically be officially reported. Please refer to these rules if you have a question pertaining to court reporters

Transcripts: To request a transcript of a proceeding, contact the reporters directly. To aid us in finding your transcript, please have the case name, case number and the date and time of the proceedings. If you call when we are out of the office, please leave this information plus your return number and we will get back to you with an estimate of cost as soon as possible.

Electronic Recordings A court reporter’s transcript is considered the official record of the court proceeding. When there is no court reporter at a court hearing or trial (such as some misdemeanors, infraction and traffic calendars), the audio recording of the proceeding is considered the official court record. To request an audio recording of a hearing that was electronically recorded (no court reporter), please fill out the Electronic Recording Request form and submit to the criminal clerk’s office in person or electronically either at for Nevada City or for Truckee.

Independent Reporters Some of the reporters listed work through (or own) court reporting firms. The firm names are listed next to the reporter's name. If you would like to be added to this list, please contact the reporters directly.
