About Our Member
Please note that I am only now available for some audio transcription work.
I started my career in September 1971 as a pen shorthand writer in the Crown Courts (Quarter Sessions as then they were) on the North-Eastern Circuit. I travelled extensively between such courts from as far as Carlisle, Beverly, Hull, Leeds and Liverpool.
In 1985 I made the decision to retrain as a CAT writer and so I moved to London. For five years I stayed in London during the week, worked for Virginia Wason at Southwark and retrained with Palantype - and travelled home (north-east) for the weekend.
In 1990 I moved permanently to my current address. I stayed with Virginia Wason until she lost the contract.
In 1992 I started work at the Royal Courts of Justice as the shorthand writer to Lord Taylor CJ. I have been with all Lord Chief Justices since then. I also cover other courts when the Lord Chief Justice does not sit and fit in some audio transcription work.
I now have "DV Security Clearance until 2025.
