Donald S. Honigman, Reid Axelrod, San Francisco, CA

“Carol has reported depositions for me all over the world.  There are no complications – she makes things work even with Real Time and video.  I often have a rough transcript within hours of the end of the deposition and a complete perfect transcript within days.  No one works harder.”

Arthur J. Casey, Attorney, San Jose, CA

"I highly recommend Nygard and Associates as the best court reporting firm in California.  Carol, her court reporters and staff are top professionals who provide  excellent court reporting services backed by a responsive, courteous and helpful staff.  Whether taking depositions at their great locations in Sacramento and San Francisco or on the road you can always count on a highly qualified court reporter to be on time and ready to report even the toughest of depositions.  There really is no other place to go for the best court reporters in California."

Christian J. Rowley, Partner, Seyfarth Shaw, LLP, San Francisco, CA

“I have been working almost exclusively with Carol and her team for nearly the last 10 years in California for hundreds of depositions and many labor arbitrations.  Carol is an outstanding reporter herself, and the other reporters on her team are also excellent.  Her firm is always responsive, her transcripts timely and accurate, and her pricing and customer care are much better than some of the larger firms in my experience.  I have no reservations about recommending her to anyone, and I encourage my colleagues to use her firm whenever possible.”

Bruce L. Davis of Prindle, Amaro, Goetz, Hillyard, Barnes & Reinholtz -Long Beach & San Francisco, California

"Our firm uses C N & Assoc whenever we need a reporter for our San Francisco office , or in Northern California. I have found them to be not only cosummate professionals, but are extremely flexible when scheduling becomes problematic! They have always been willing to go the extra mile to insure my needs are met, and do it with a great and able staff."

David W. Tredway, Esq. Ferguson Case Orr Paterson LLP, Ventura, Ca

"Based in Southern California, I sincerely appreciate how Carol, her reporters and staff have met our Northern California deposition needs, providing excellent reporters and conference rooms where needed. Your staff have shown the flexibility I have needed to cover the changing dates and locations. Thank you again."

Ronald Metzinger of Metzinger & Associates

"My name is Ronald Metzinger of Metzinger & Associates.  I use Carol Nygard for all my depositions, both of doctors and witnesses in Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury cases.  Their office is efficient, professional, helpful, on-time, courteous and I receive the work I give these people in a very expeditious manner.  I have used them for video depositions, and even long-distance depositions where I have even sent the court reporter to the doctor’s office or directly to the witness and the attorneys attend by telephone.  In each case I have never had a problem in the results, in the court reporter being prompt for the various activities that are taking place and some of these depositions have been in unusual locations so that it is necessary that I have someone who is able to react quickly to potential adverse circumstances, which has been the case with Ms. Nygard and her staff.  I would highly recommend her for depositions to anyone who is considering the use of a deposition reporting service."
