Happy Lunar New Year!

Today we celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year of the Fire Monkey.  In honor of this day, we want to share a short film, created by director/cinematographer Alex Hankoff @a_hankoff.  Alex is the son of Shauna Hankoff, Senior Account Executive at Ellen Grauer Court Reporting.  
This film takes viewers through a day with Valerie Tom, founder of the Chinatown Community Young Lions, as she and her family celebrate the Lunar New Year in Chinatown.
Alex has a unique talent for capturing cultural slices of New York City life.  “He created NYChapters with Editor Morgan Mitchell as a platform to showcase the incredible variety of stories and personalities that weave together to create the fabric of this vibrant city.”  
NYChapters, which has recently been featured in The Atlantic, is a short documentary series focusing on individual New Yorkers from all walks of life.
More of his moving work can be seen at www.alexanderhankoff.com.
Wishing you a year of great prosperity!

– Ellen

New Site Launch

With the momentum of 2016, I look to the year ahead at Ellen Grauer Court Reporting with great enthusiasm. As a solution-driven company, our motto No Excuses, Just Results fuels the heart of everything we do. As we build on this philosophy for the coming year, we continue to expand our footprint in the global court reporting world.

This month, as we celebrate our 19th year in business, we’re launching a brand new website. Along with a crisp, clean look, our clients can now easily schedule depositions, seamlessly navigate our cutting edge services, and become acquainted with the leadership team who they deal with on a regular basis. Our new platform reflects the high-quality, personalized service that has always been top priority for our team.

EGCR is run like a family built on our core values Integrity, Excellence, Dependability, Loyalty and Teamwork. The majority of our employees and reporters have been with us for over ten years, many since our inception in 1997. As we expanded, we never compromised the attention to detail and hands-on approach that keeps us on the forefront of the industry.

Unique. Approachable. Forward-thinking. Even though Ellen Grauer Court Reporting handles cases for national law firms, major corporations and government entities, we have maintained an open door policy with upper management, which allows for the immediate implementation of creative ideas and cutting edge technology. We listen carefully to the needs of our employees and clients, ensuring that we incorporate constructive feedback into our daily business practices.

In the ever-changing court reporting field, EGCR has always stayed ahead of the curve while maintaining loyal relationships and providing seamless service to our clients.

Going forward, readers can expect original industry-related articles by guest bloggers every month. We’ll also be profiling an employee or reporter to give our audience a better idea of who we are. We believe that what our employees bring to the table from the outside enriches Ellen Grauer Court Reporting on the inside.

This year, I am excited to engage new technologies such as electronic exhibits to save our clients time and money while reducing our carbon footprint on the environment. We will also be growing our sales force and increasing the personnel in our scheduling department to handle all national and international logistics as our global presence expands.

With our continued commitment to going above and beyond, I’d like to extend my gratitude to everyone who makes getting up in the morning and going to work a true joy. This profession has given me the opportunity to meet brilliant attorneys, work with extraordinary people, and report high-profile litigation and pro-bono cases that make a difference in the lives of others.

Here’s to a prosperous year for all!
