Court Reporters in Criminal Cases or Cases With Court Appointed Counsel

T.C.A. §40-14-301 - §40-14-317 governs court reporters providing services in Tennessee’s criminal courts. The Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) has administered this program since 1965.

The services of court reporters working in criminal courts are also sometimes needed for non-hearing matters such as matters that help attorneys appointed to represent parties when the parties are indigent (cannot afford an attorney). This can include court reporting services during depositions. In addition, court reporters may be needed during preliminary hearings held in general sessions court; juvenile court proceedings such as termination of parental rights and dependency/neglect; and proceedings that waive parental consent for abortions by minors. Authorization for such services is governed by Supreme Court Rule 13 and Supreme Court Rule 24.

Listed below is the contact information for contract court reporters who provide court reporting services to criminal court or services governed by Supreme Court Rule 13 and Supreme Court Rule 24.

You may locate a reporter by county, credentials, or by judicial district(s).
