If you have filed a notice of appeal and need a trial or hearing transcript for the appellate record, you can trust Worley Reporting to help. We’ve been chosen by appellate attorneys and law firms across North Carolina to prepare trial and hearing transcripts because of our experience, quality, and streamlined scheduling process.
Here’s how it works:
- First, you will need to obtain the official court audio file in Liberty Court Player (or other) format from the clerk of court.
- Then, contact us by email with a general description of the project and when you need it completed (standard 60 days per Rule 7, or sooner). We will send you a link enabling you to upload your audio or video file directly to us. (You can keep your hard disk.) We’ll examine the file and provide you with a price quote.
- If you decide to move forward after receiving the price quote, please email us with the full case caption, the names of the attorneys present and the hearing judge, the date of the proceedings, and the name of opposing counsel who will be provided with a copy of the certificate of service upon completion. We can usually prepare your contract within 24 hours if we have this information and the audio file; you then file the contract with the court per statute to document the arrangement of transcription and return a signed copy to us.
- We’ll begin transcription once we receive full prepayment by PayPal or check. (We’ll invoice you upon completion if you have established credit as a deposition client and your project is less than two hours in duration.) The completed transcript will arrive in your email as a PDF file.
- We’ll certify completion of the transcript with the court by sending a completed certificate of service and delivery to you, opposing counsel, and the clerk of the trial court. Later, when you’ve been assigned an appellate docket number, provide us with that number and we’ll file the transcript electronically with the appellate court through the North Carolina Appellate Courts electronic filing website.
[We are unable to accept submissions directly from party litigants. If you are represented by an attorney, please have your attorney contact us directly to make the arrangements for preparing your transcript. If you are a pro se litigant representing yourself and do not plan on engaging an attorney to assist you, click here for the NCAOC’s official list of alternative providers who may be able to help.]
