FLORIDA – Legal Graphicworks headquartered in West Palm Beach, FL, has announced the hiring of Debra Duran-Bornstein as vice president of court reporting services to launch and lead its new Court Reporting Services division. A well-known name in South Florida legal services, Duran-Bornstein is a licensed, certified court reporter with 30 years of experience and leadership in the field. She ran her own firm as president of Debra Duran & Associates Inc. between 2000 and 2015 in West Palm Beach, FL, where she built a boutique agency with a concentration on complex business litigation covering clients’ needs worldwide.
Duran-Bornstein will work seamlessly with Legal Graphicworks’ team of professional video production and trial support and technology experts at every stage, from discovery through trial, to offer law firms a unique one-stop resource.
“Typically, attorneys outsource trial technologies and high-end graphics to one firm and court reporting and video depositions to another, but with our Court Reporting Services division and Debra at the helm, we offer a complete one-stop shop from start to finish,” said Jim Lucas, president of Legal Graphicworks. “With Debra’s exceptional experience and stellar reputation, we can provide the trust, accuracy and timeliness lawyers rely on when it comes to court reporting.”
Court reporters are highly trained stenographers responsible for transcribing verbatim records of court proceedings, depositions, and other events where the spoken word must be preserved as a written transcript. They are responsible for ensuring a complete, accurate, and secure legal record. Duran-Bornstein will lead Legal Graphicworks court reporting in the courtroom and will integrate with other services where a verbatim written record supports the needs of attorneys, including video depositions. Other services include realtime reporting, in-person/remote reporting and interpreting.
“Joining the LGW team is a tremendous opportunity to offer clients everything they need for trial all under one roof from top-notch professionals who work together hand-in-hand and are 100% dedicated to 24/7 client service,” said Duran-Bornstein. “We will support our clients with highly professional, knowledgeable, certified stenographers who are passionate about their craft as guardians of the record and will provide the best transcript to win the case.”
Duran-Bornstein joined Legal Graphicworks on June 1, 2021. She is a fourth generation Floridian residing with her family in Stuart, FL. She attended Hamel College, which later became Legal Career Institute, and began her career with Mudrick Witt Levy & Consor, the largest court reporting agency in Florida. In addition to her role at Legal Graphicworks, Duran-Bornstein provides her expertise to mentor and teach stenographers online as the founder and administrator of Realtime Learn and Share on Facebook.
Legal Graphicworks was created in 2010 by President Jim Lucas in response to the growing need for captivating and persuasive presentations in the courtroom setting. The company provides law firms with litigation and trial support through innovative storytelling that makes complex information easy to understand by using multimedia demonstrative aids, including animation, illustrations and day in the life videos.
