What People Are Saying About Us

Stephen R. Jaffe

The Jaffe Law Firm

The Souza Group is our firm's "go to" deposition reporting firm. We have worked with Harry for years. They have the array of services of a large​, established reporting firm with the flexibility and personal attention of a small company. The quality of their reporters and deposition products are high. I strongly recommend and endorse The Souza Group.

Carl D. Ciochon

Wendel, Rosen, Black & Dean, LLP

Souza has been my go-to firm for nearly a decade. Their court reporters are absolutely top notch and the quality of the transcripts is consistently excellent. They provide the same bells and whistles as the national firms (including e-transcripts and easy downloads), at significantly lower cost and with unmatched personal service.

Brendan Macaulay

Nossaman, LLP

Souza is my first choice. They have reasonable prices without junk fees, a professional back office, and court reporters who are dependable, engaged, talented and can keep up with machine-gun testimony.

John E. Harding, JD, CFLS

Harding & Associates Family Law

The Souza Group has been our court reporting firm of choice for decades. They provide excellent deposition facilities, reliable reporters, and exemplary customer service. A top notch professional firm, continually demonstrating competence and care.

Christine Hughes

Contract Counsel for Federated Department Stores, Inc.

I first became familiar with The Souza Group less than two weeks before what we thought would be a three week jury trial. Mr. Harry Souza assured us that he would be able to get everything we needed by the first day of trial. Not only did he get that done, but the trial resulted in non-suit against the plaintiff. The Souza Group was instrumental to our defense victory as the plaintiff’s demeanor at trial was vastly different from her deposition. We used clips of the plaintiff’s deposition to impeach her again and again. At the close of her case, the judge weighed the evidence and ruled that none of her claims were credible.

Mr. Souza was professional, and most importantly when you are in trial, available at all times to address our needs. I am advising my clients that in the future any case would benefit by using The Souza Group either for trial, mediation or any other forum where credibility is key.
