What our reporters have to say about us...

Pam

"I've been a reporter for 12 years and have worked for three different firms during my career. I have enjoyed working with Benchmark, by far, the most. Benchmark offers me the opportunity to work with excellent attorneys who respect the hard work that reporters do. Attorneys really appreciate that Benchmark keeps up with the latest technology and offers services that meet their needs. Benchmark has very specific guidelines - there is no question about what is expected of reporters. If I encounter something new and have a question, I know I can count on Benchmark to find out the answer for me. I really appreciate that.

In addition, the Benchmark staff is incredible. They put up with reporters' endless deadlines and the crunches we put them through on a daily basis. I can always count on them to do whatever it takes to meet any demand that comes their way. I really like working for Benchmark. We have a good working relationship and that really means something to me."

"It is an honor to associate with Benchmark Reporting Agency. As an owner, Aimee is on top of her business in every regard. From knowing the latest technology inside out to assembling an unbeatable office staff, Aimee is quick to recognize keys to success and utilize them. In the office, Shannon and Jolene work together seamlessly amidst one demand after the other, usually peppered with "I need this yesterday!"

Benchmark Reporting Agency is the only office I know, in all the years I've been a reporter, at which the reporters stand united in their dedication to the firm. I am proud to be a Benchmark Court Reporter."

"I like working with Benchmark for many reasons. The atmosphere is positive and extremely helpful. Everyone-Aimee, Eric, Jolene and Shannon-are especially nice and work together to make sure the office runs efficiently. They are well-informed about court reporting and share information so reporters are more knowledgeable. Plus, Aimee is perhaps the most knowledgeable person in the Twin Cities regarding computer technology and LiveNote®. Not only does she teach a new reporter about the technology Benchmark uses, she has actually met me at a job to help hook up complicated equipment; I've never had another firm owner do that."
