In order to prepare your quote, I’ll need to assess the relevant court recording(s) for length and quality; to obtain the audio, a Transcript Order Form must be filed. The information below is required to complete that form.

If you’re unsure of the details of the matter you wish to order, please contact the court site where the matter was held to inquire. The directory of all Ontario court locations is here at attorneygeneral.jus.gov.on.ca.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes a court transcript certified?

In order to be considered certified, court transcripts must include a certification page signed by the Authorized Court Transcriptionist that prepared the court transcript. Certified copies of court transcripts are always required when being used in court; photocopied transcripts are not permitted.

What does verbatim transcription mean?

Verbatim transcription is the process of transcribing audio in the exact way it is spoken for the purpose of producing a precise record of a court recording. In order to earn my Authorized Court Transcriptionist certification from Durham College, I had to demonstrate a 98% accuracy when transcribing from source audio, and I hold myself to the same standards in my transcription work today.

Are electronic copies of transcripts free?
They are if you order them at the same time as the original certified court transcript.  If you require an electronic copy but not a certified one, you will still be charged the per page rate according to your timeline. It’s the same price for a certified court transcript PLUS an electronic copy as it is to just receive the electronic copy. 
How quickly will I receive my free estimate?
Once I have received all of the required information from you, I can order recording(s) of your matter from the appropriate court location and begin preparing your quote. Please note this process takes approximately 1-3 business days; your estimate will be provided by email. 
What information do I need to place a transcript order with you?
For both Ontario Court of Justice and Superior Court of Justice cases, you will need to provide all of the information required to fill out a transcript order form. Please see the Free Quote section for what information you will need to provide in order for me to request the recording(s).
Do I have to fill in the transcript order form myself?
Provided I have all of the required information, I would be more than happy to complete the order form for you.
Do you require a deposit in order to prepare my transcript(s)?
Deposits from legal counsel or government agencies are not required, but I do require a deposit from the general public before I will begin the process of preparing your transcript(s).
What forms of payment fo you accept?
I accept payments via Paypal or etransfer from the general public. I will also accept company cheques from legal counsel and government agencies.
Once the transcripts are completed, how will I receive them?
Upon completion of the transcript(s) and full receipt of payment, an electronic copy will be sent to you by email. Additionally, any certified copies that were ordered will be sent to you by Purolator courier service.
