What They Said About Us

  • “Premiere Verbatim Reporting (PVR) provided our team with real-time reporting services for over 60 days of examinations for discovery for a period exceeding 21 months. The end result was over 9800 pages of transcript, with approximately 730 requests and over 500 exhibits. PVR also provided a hardcopy of the exhibits, which were tabbed and organized in binders as well as a scanned copy of the exhibits which were provided to us on CDs. PVR’s staff was very accommodating with last-minute and usually time-sensitive requests for extra services or scheduling changes. They were organized, timely and very personable and warm. The hospitality and professionalism of the staff at PVR was exceptional and the delicious home-made treats and snacks available daily to us were an added bonus. In short, our experience at PVR was a very positive experience. A big thanks to the wonderful staff at PVR!”

  • “I have practised law in Victoria for almost 20 years and over that period have conducted innumerable examinations for discovery and other proceedings at PVR. I have also conducted litigation proceedings at a vast number of other court reporting offices throughout the province.

    “PVR provides a service and atmosphere that is unparalleled. Litigation is a stressful and adversarial arena and PVR provides an environment that ensures my clients feel comfortable and well supported. Jan, Harry and Malcolm, and now Sherene, have also created a collegial office culture within which counsel are able to meet and conduct business in a positive and productive manner. All aspects of the services provided are attended to including scheduling, provision of top flight reporters, refreshments, decor, ambiance, accurate transcripts, and a respectful "can do" attitude. I find myself contacting PVR for help with all facets of litigation support such as depositions, video conferencing, trial transcripts, appeal transcripts, mediations and video depositions.”

  • “I have had the opportunity to utilize the services of Premiere Verbatim Reporting on many occasions during my 39 years of practice in the city. The services provided were primarily reporting services but on occasion comprised of the provision of facilities for mediation and arbitration sessions.
