Our vast experience and success has made us one of the most trusted and reliable court reporting firms in Texas.

Seasoned Leaders

The owners of Continental Court Reporters, inc. are Diane and Gerry Richer, court reporters licensed by the State of Texas. Continental Court Reporters was incorporated in October of 1990. Prior to that time, the owners of Continental operated as Richer & Barnhart, Inc. and Boland O’Neal & Richer, Inc. The owners have been in business together since 1976. Continental first came into existence in 1948 when three official court reporters who were pen writers formed a freelance reporting company to offer reporting services for depositions on Saturdays.

Today Continental Court Reporters specializes in providing real-time services, daily copy, and immediate transcripts for all types of proceedings, including Arbitrations and depositions. CCR provides video recording, global videoconferencing, records retrieval, process services, interpreters, and all types of litigation support services.

Our services are provided through our offices in Houston, Austin and Dallas; and we provide national and international services through our in-house reporters, videographers and trusted affiliates. At Continental, we believe in listening to our clients and working with them to achieve their goals and objectives. Our competitive pricing and advanced technical skills compliment our high-quality products and services. Continental’s experienced real-time reporters can provide the service that will be required for any deposition, meeting, hearing or arbitration proceeding.
