What Others Have Said About Being Acquired By Pohlman

“One of my goals as the owner of O’Brien & Bails was to always ensure that we were the best resource we could be for our clients. As we have become part of Pohlman, their staff, court reporters and technology have exceeded my high expectations. The expanded resources and continued excellent customer service that we have been able to provide to our clients confirms that I made the right decision to partner with Pohlman.” 

Dawn Houghton – O’Brien & Bails

“From the initial conversations with the Pohlman executive team, through closing, and through the transition period, the Pohlman team was there with us. After the closing the Pohlman management team has worked closely with our staff keeping them involved and working in their same capacities. Our court reporters and clients have appreciated the additional technology Pohlman has brought to them as well. If you are considering selling your agency, I encourage you to speak with Pohlman. “  

Barbara and Dave Evans – Evans Reporting

“Making the decision to sell our agency was emotional and difficult. But making the decision to sell to Pohlman was easy. One of our chief objectives was to find a company that would value our reporters and staff as the talented individuals they are, as well as continue to provide services to our clients in a professional and ethical way.

After being courted by two large companies, we decided to go in a different direction. Folks we knew in the business told us positive things about Pohlman’s team. We picked up the phone and called to see if they might be interested in Amicus. Once we spoke with Debbie Walters, we knew it was a fit for integrity, ethics, and growth. We could feel great about retirement with Amicus in their hands. If you are looking to sell your agency we highly recommend speaking with Pohlman. We are certain you will not be disappointed.”

Diana and Stewart Karge – Amicus Court Reporters

“The experience with merging my business with PohlmanUSA Court Reporting was a right move for me both professionally and personally.  I had a successful freelance firm and worked extremely hard building my firm, which was rewarding no doubt, but it also was a daily stress on me, which I put on myself.  I knew I was working too many hours trying to take care of everything.   

After the merger, my life became a life.  I could take vacations without being tethered to my cell phone.  I could enjoy life a little bit more. .  I can honestly say that everything that was supposed to happen after the merger, Pohlman has seen to it to keep their end of the bargain, as well as I have kept my end of the bargain.

 If you are even thinking about merging your business with another court reporting firm, I urge you to sit down with the representatives of PohlmanUSA and listen to what they have to say.  After all, they’re always listening.”
