A Different Court Reporting Firm in Salt Lake

The business of court reporting has been a major part of law for nearly 200 years, and it isn’t going anywhere. Though the importance of the job is often overlooked by media, court reporters are a highly valuable and important part of any legal team. By typing upwards of 200 words a minute, court reporters are able to record what was said, how it was said, and produce a transcript for both legal teams to review. These full transcripts of hearings and depositions not only factor how an attorney may choose to proceed with a case, but it can even impact the judge’s final decision. A good court reporter is essential to a winning case.

Nowadays, many court reporting firms are owned and operated by a large, parent corporation. This results in a set of companies that are run the same way with the same standards, sets of rules, and protocols. This is not a bad thing by any means, but larger management can often lead to lower customer service and less individualized treatment of clientele.

Tempest Reporting is different from these firms. After 30 years as a successful court reporting firm in Salt Lake City, Tempest Reporting has maintained its status of being independently owned and operated. The firm’s founder, Ariel Mumma, built Tempest Reporting on a vision of providing the highest-quality reporting services and most up-to-date technology for their clients. Tempest Reporting completely understands the tight deadlines and competitive legal environment, so their services are tailored to it.

Part of Mumma’s motivation was to provide clients the technology they needed to form the most successful case possible. As a result, Tempest became one of the first court reporting companies to deliver transcripts by email and offer videoconferencing. They became one of the few firms in Utah who offered out-of-state service, because they feel a legal professional in need of a quality court reporter should not be limited by distance.

“I have worked with Tempest/Ariel for 26 years,” one client says. “They have always been very professional and helpful with anything I need. The office staff is always quick to respond to inquiries and everyone is very friendly. I would recommend them for all your court reporting needs.”
