Guarding The Deposition Record When A Stenographer Is Nowhere In Sight

by Steve Townsend, CEO

Don't be surprised if there is no stenographer in your next deposition. A little history may help put your mind at ease.

Sticks and Stones…

By Brian Blasko

I’m pretty sure we’re all familiar with the old school childhood phrase that goes, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Well, guess what? News flash. Words do hurt! And, of course, so do those darn sticks and stones. There are many reasons why people choose to make other people unhappy. Maybe it’s a personal vendetta, anger issues, or simply a case of insecurity. Whatever the reason may be, one thing is for sure. WE control our own emotions and reactions to negativity.
