Cynthia Rodriguez CEO of Star Reporting Services 

After seventeen years as Certified Realtime Reporter, Cythnia Rodriguez has now launched her own company Star Reporting Services. She prides herself in creating verbatim and extremely accurate transcripts in the courtroom. 

Star Reporting Services mentors those interested in the legal field and lead them to become reporters who excel. They use the advanced skills of capturing the words and placing them on a paper where individuals can read and visualize what went on during a court trial. 

Unfortunately the legal field is lacking highly qualified individuals in court reporting, hence this has led to a lack of accuracy in court reporting. Star Reporting Services is dedicated to help change this with it’s goal to increase the number of highly qualified court reporters nationwide. 

She hopes her passion for court reporting inspires the legal field community with positive change. Rodriguez shares, “If you like a good challenge, you like to stimulate your mind and learn, especially these days, growing your knowledge of technology, this is definitely the field to go into. Despite it being challenging, it’s also very rewarding. You get out of it, what you put into it. I hope to help others that are interested in the field, whether it be students or newly Certified Shorthand Reporters.”
