Excellent Qualifications, References & Skills
All From A Family Run Office

Linda J. Hart, CSR #4357, RPR, RMR and CRR, is the principal of L.J. Hart & Associates, Inc. and Barron & Rich. Thank you for trusting us with your most important testimony. Always on time, always verbatim and never missing a trial date are most important to me when performing my job. Continuing education has kept me at the top of technology. I am now providing real-time wireless feeds to iPads through iCVnet and CaseView net. After 36 years of reporting, I absolutely love my job, and our loyal clients are what make us the successful agency we are. I have proudly served as Secretary/Treasurer for Northern California Court Reporters Association in 2009/2010, and President in 2010/2011. I also proudly served as a board member for California Court Reporters Association from 2011 to 2013. I love wine and hot bread, traveling, spending time with friends and family, and enjoying the great outdoors camping and hiking.
Karen Forster, CSR #8691, RPR: I have been a freelance deposition reporter since 1990. In addition to my CSR certificate, I am a Registered Professional Reporter through the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA). I had the privilege to serve as secretary of the Northern California Court Reporters Association in 2010 and 2011. I enjoy the diverse challenges of creating a verbatim record. My free time is spent with my family or in my garden.
Kendra Gillie, CSR #9643: I have been a court reporter for over 20 years, and I still know this is the perfect job for me. I take pride in producing quality transcripts in a timely manner. I have experience in both court and depositions. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the gym and spending time with family and friends.
Diana Hulsey, CSR #6915: I have been a court reporter for 28 years for L.J. Hart & Associates. I like skiing, going to the gym, walking, playing with my dog Molly, and traveling. I really like being a court reporter, because of all of the nice people I've met over the years.
Sandy J. Koster, CSR #3325: I have been reporting since 1976, and love being a court reporter. I pride myself on producing accurate and on-time transcripts. I am also a member of National Court Reporters Association. In my free time, I enjoy riding my horse, Rock, and spending time with my family.
Jolyne Simler, CSR #10902: "People matter, excellent transcripts are paramount," has been my motto since I began reporting in 1995. I am a proud member of CCRA and NCCRA. When not working, I can be found reading, traveling and enjoying everything outdoors.
Janice Vassar-Locke, CSR #7257: I graduated from Argonaut Court Reporting School and received my California license in 1987, and have been reporting ever since!  I originally started with Capitol Reporters and then moved on to Western Reporters for the next 20-something years.  I love my job (except for two days a year when I want to back my car over my steno machine!)  In my spare time, I make award-winning caramels.
Sandy Walter, CSR #7486, RPR: Court reporting is what I was meant to do. After 28 years of deposition reporting, I still enjoy everything about reporting. I trained at Argonaut School of Court Reporting, gained my Registered Professional Reporter's license and California Certified Shorthand Reporter's license in 1987. My personal interests include playing flute in community bands in the Sacramento area, horseback riding, gardening, and spending time with my family, friends, and two Australian Shepherds.
