What our clients say about us…

“I have worked with Robin for more than 20 years.  With all the craziness that goes on in the practice of law, the one thing I can count on is a great court reporter, who is dependable, responsive, and provides a top-notch work product.  Robin has a wonderful personality and is a pleasure to work with.  I cannot imagine working with another court reporter.  I highly recommend Robin and her team.”

“Over the years, I and members of my firm have had the opportunity to utilize the services of a number of court reporters and court reporting services in the Chicago area and throughout the country. There is, however, one court reporting firm that stands head and shoulders above the rest – Chimniak Court Reporting. Robin Chimniak and her staff of reporters are fantastic! They are meticulous in their work, extremely professional, dependable and incredibly responsive. In a profession that is characterized by high stress and unpredictability, there is nothing more important than having reporters who are as professional and dependable as the reporters at Chimniak Court Reporting.”

“I have relied on Robin Chimniak for court reporting services for many years. She makes herself available for last-minute hearings, lengthy trials and the out-of-the-way depositions. She is prompt, unflappable, accurate and reliable. Without a doubt, she has among the best court reporting services in the Chicago metropolitan area. I recommend her work without reservation.”

Mark A. Flessner
Holland & Knight

“The pressures of litigation come in many forms and from many sources. Being prepared for a deposition, contested hearing or trial requires having many moving parts all working properly. The one thing that I never worry about is my court reporter — Robin Chimniak.

For over 20 years, she has provided me and my colleagues at my law firm with dependable, fast, accurate and intelligent court reporting services that include up-to-date technology. The ultimate compliment is that opposing counsel often replace their own reporters with Robin and her staff after they have had the opportunity to see their work and see their work product.”

Robert Berger, Partner
Schiff Hardin, LLP

“I have worked with Robin Chimniak in well over a hundred cases this last 15 years or so. I have been constantly impressed with her work, both as a court reporter and in the management of her business. As a court reporter, she gets it right. The end-product transcripts are clear and easy to get through (difficult names get checked for spelling, grammatical nuances get expressed correctly, and complex conversations involving multiple speakers get broken out as they should be), but she accomplishes as much without the need to jump in during the actual examination or deposition she’s there to cover (unlike many other court reporters who jump in to check spelling at the most inopportune of times). She conducts herself well in court, works well with the parties and attorneys involved, and is always where she needs to be when she needs to be there. Her front office also does a remarkable job of ensuring that scheduling gets handled well (and amazingly well!), transcripts get where they need to be when they need to be, and everything runs smoothly. We have a lot of vendors we tolerate working with, as everyone does, but Robin’s people are not people you need to tolerate — they are people it is a joy to work with.”

“I have been using Robin’s company since the early 1990s. Chimniak Court Reporting is my “go to” court reporter – hands down the most accurate and professional court reporters I have dealt with.”

Carol A. Hogan

“Chimniak Court Reporting is my go-to reporting service. I haven’t used a different reporter in over a decade. The reason? Pure competence. They turn the transcripts around quickly. Their charges are reasonable. The transcripts are always accurate and I get a call in advance of the production of the transcript with questions about unfamiliar names. They are flexible, working my job in at the last minute when necessary. Highly recommended.”

“Our firm has been using Chimniak Court Reporters for years and we have found their reporters and office staff to be courteous, responsive, and very reliable. Chimniak Court Reporting is the way to go for all of your court reporting needs.”

“Robin Chimniak is the best court reporter in the business. For years she has provided me accurate daily transcript for many long, complex trials and arbitrations. There is no court reporter I would rather work with. She is easy to work with: fast, thorough and responsive.”

Emily Nicklin
Kirkland & Ellis, LLP

“Robin Chimniak was my ‘go-to’ court reporter in Chicago and elsewhere for over 20 years. She understood the demands of my practice and, as importantly, the importance of her work to my clients. I was not a small challenge as a user of court reporting services, since I often speak quite quickly. Robin’s work always was and still is timely and unerringly accurate. She also is a delightful person with whom to work.”

David L. Carden
Jones-Day, formerly U.S. Ambassador to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations

“For many years, whenever I have needed excellent court reporting services with the latest technology and timely service I have turned to Robin Chimniak, and she has come through for me and my clients every time.

In addition, when I asked Robin for help in working with me on my firm’s trial training program, she and the talented people who work for her got involved and have helped make that annual program an authentic training experience that has benefited every associate at our firm.

I never have to think twice when I need court reporting services. I call Robin.”

Peter Newton
Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg, LLP

“After working with Robin Chiminak under demanding circumstances, I know she understands that accuracy and timeliness are critical, both for me and for my clients. She and her staff are particularly suited for large, complex cases. I know that no matter how demanding my expectations, I can depend on prompt delivery of a professional product. Law firms, in my view, need to have a relationship with this kind of court reporting service.”
