Michael F. Lyon, Esq.
Lindhorst & Dreidame Co., L.P.A.
A stenographer is often times placed in a very precarious position in that they must navigate through very intense adversarial environments.  Brenda and her staff consistently demonstrate an extraordinary ability through their very attractive personalities, wit, intelligence and skill to bring order and calm to sometimes rather intense situations and by doing so perpetuate a professional environment of the highest standard.

I highly recommend this extraordinary professional, Brenda Keyser and her staff and ask that you call anytime in the event you need any further information or insight to Elite.

Hands down, Brenda is the top Court Reporter that I have ever used. Not only have I used her for deposition services hundreds of times, I have used her for other transcription projects as well. She produces materials on time and accurately, making me read as a much better lawyer than I am. When I need a court reporting agency, she is always our first call.
