History of First Choice Reporting and Video

First Choice Reporting was founded in 1997 by Kirsty Schouweiler, a registered court reporter. Three years later, her sister, Krystal Edwards, joined the firm. Their mother's simple words of advice at that time were, “Take care of your customers and your team and you will be fine.” With a commitment to service and positive attitude, they have expanded the firm from its initial office in Orlando, Florida to a statewide network of 12 offices and a world-wide network of affiliates and court reporters.

Through it all, the sisters never lost sight of their overriding purpose to earn your business and your trust. And to go beyond great service to include enthusiasm and a positive attitude. The formula is working. First Choice Reporting is continually adding new business and new excitement. Things are growing, we’re adding, buying and building. Clients love First Choice Reporting and clients are loyal to First Choice Reporting.
