About Kennedy Reporting Service

Kennedy Reporting Service has been the official reporting service for the Public Utility Commission of Texas since 1976.  Aloma J. Kennedy incorporated the firm in 1979 and was the owner/operator for over 30 years.  On May 1, 2010, the firm was acquired by Lorrie A. Schnoor.  During her 28-year career as a certified shorthand reporter, Lorrie has seen the importance of higher level certifications and believes that this shows her commitment to the profession and to the integrity of her work.  Through the National Court Reporters Association, she has achieved the certifications of Registered Professional Reporter, Registered Merit Reporter, and Certified Realtime Reporter.  Most recently, Lorrie has obtained the Registered Diplomate Reporter certification, which is the highest level nationally that a court reporter can be certified.

Lorrie is an active member of the Texas Court Reporters Association, having served on various committees through the years and most recently serving on the board of directors as the President-Elect.  She enjoys giving back to her profession.

Amy Burt is the Office Manager for Kennedy Reporting Service and has been employed with the company for over 20 years. She oversees the scheduling and production functions of the firm.  Amy understands the importance of getting our clients what they need when they need it.  Customer service is our top priority!

We realize the importance of costs related to litigation and have our services reasonably and competitively priced. Kennedy Reporting Service continues to follow the “1/3 Rule” that has recently been removed from the Code of Professional Conduct for Court Reporters in Texas, which stated that a copy of a deposition cannot be more than 1/3 of the price of the original deposition. We have no hidden fees and itemize every invoice that is sent from our office.

While Kennedy Reporting Service is best known for our extraordinary ability in covering hearings before the Public Utility Commission of Texas, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and other state agencies before the State Office of Administrative Hearings, we also cover depositions of any subject matter.

For firms searching for a reporter to cover local depositions, we prefer “referrals” over “networking.” Your transcripts will be produced pursuant to the Uniform Format Manual required to be followed by all Texas reporters in Texas cases, and they will be sent to your client timely based on their preferences.

In keeping with Kennedy’s reputation with our clients, we are committed to uphold the quality and efficiency of our services and to give our clients “a Record of Excellence.”

Give us a call today for your deposition and hearing needs! We look forward to working with you!
