Lakeside Reporting was founded by Amy Rostad. Amy and our team of certified court reporters have reported hundreds of depositions, hearings, arbitrations, and other legal proceedings for some of the nation’s top law firms for many years. Our team of freelance court reporters are experienced in reporting a wide range of complex litigation, including asbestos, patent, civil, securities, real estate, business, and commercial, just to name a few.

Lakeside Reporting offers certified court reporters and legal videographers for both deposition and arbitration proceedings. We are based in Kirkland, Washington, and cover Bellevue, Everett, Seattle, and surrounding areas. Our team can schedule complimentary conference rooms in over 20 locations throughout King, Pierce, Snohomish, and Whatcom counties.

It is easy to schedule with us via telephone, email, web form, or our 24/7 client portal. Let us assist you with your scheduling needs locally, nationally, as well as internationally, through our network of freelance court reporters. We look forward to working with you!

"I have had the pleasure of using Amy Rostad as my go-to reporter for 10+ years. She is superb in all respects, including accuracy and timeliness of transcripts, especially when needed within only a few days. Every time I see a transcript from another reporter, which happens in administrative proceedings and some courthouses, my appreciation of Amy is renewed. She’s the best, and I say that based on 46 years with court reporters!"

"Our Union has been working with Amy Rostad for quite some time and she, along with the rest of the staff at Lakeside, have always demonstrated noteworthy work! Their attention to detail and constant attentiveness to their client’s ever-changing needs is exemplary. We have used other court reporters, and let’s just say that Lakeside Reporting’s work is beyond reproach.  We would use and recommend them a thousand times over."
