About Watson CSR

The only means of having an exceptional organization - is by working with exceptional individuals.  David Watson, President

A leader among court reporting firms since 1967, Watson Court Reporters has continued to thrive over five decades. Our company’s basic foundation, rooted in excellence and compassionate client care, sets us apart in the largely uniform landscape of litigation support.

Watson has earned a steadfast reputation for responsive customer service and state-of-the-art solutions, all delivered with speed and at competitive rates. From our headquarters in Los Angeles, we offer a wide array of services to our clients across the nation and abroad.

Our clients have 24/7 access to an online repository that features deposition transcripts, exhibits and hosted video.

As a third generation takes the helm of our family business, our goals remain very much the same as they were in 1967. Today, we are committed to not only providing the best and newest technology and support, but also to carrying on the tradition of personal service upon which our company was founded.
