(St. Louis, MO – February 12, 2021) PohlmanUSA, which is regionally and nationally recognized for court
reporting and litigation services, has announced their continued support to the court reporting profession by
making a donation to Project Steno. With thousands of unfilled court reporting positions across the country,
Pohlman understands that supporting the next generation of court reporters means supporting the legal industry
as a whole.
Project Steno promotes the court reporting profession by creating a pipeline of new court reporters and tuition
assistance to subsidize a student’s schooling costs. Court reporters generally graduate in two years and can start
their career right away. Currently, there is a high demand for court reporters as there are over 5,500 unfilled
court reporting positions nationally.
“During National Court Reporting and Captioning Week, we couldn’t think of a better way to show reporters
across the nation that we support their skills and profession then by donating to Project Steno. It takes vast
talent to be able to type over 225 words per minute, and we want to make sure our next generation understands
the court reporting profession, so it continues to grow and thrive.” said PohlmanUSA CEO, Deborah Walters.
In celebration this week, Pohlman has created reporter newsletters and social media posts featuring industry
topics, steno history, stories from reporters and a feature on a Project Steno student that works in Pohlman’s
records department. The newsletters gave the reporters an opportunity to connect and learn more about each
other, as well as stenographers around the nation. Walters states, “Court reporting is more exciting than most
people think. Being a stenographer, you can travel, report depositions and trials, or even perform closed
captioning services for major television broadcasts, such as sporting events, political coverage, breaking news,
as well as high-profile cases.”
