The Power of Partnership:
A Vision 30 Years in the Making

U.S. Legal Support was founded in 1996 with a single goal: to be the first nationwide, all-inclusive litigation support company. As time has passed, our commitment to the legal industry has not wavered, and our mission remains the same: to build lasting relationships with our legal industry partners by delivering exceptional litigation support services.

There’s a common misconception that nationwide “big box” support means sacrificing personalized service and local expertise. At U.S. Legal Support, we debunk that myth. Having thirty years of experience gives us expertise in local market nuances but also the reach to have resources nationwide, ensuring that we deliver what’s needed when needed.

Over the years, we’ve innovated too – adding an entire network of services to our cornerstone court reporting capabilities to create a one-stop shop for our clients.
