Jorge Dominguez

Jorge Dominguez

Owner, Coalition Court Reporters

Los Angeles, California

“When one door closes, another opens” Jorge will tell you.  And his story is a perfect example of the many paths to success that a career in court reporting affords you.  Jorge was an Official Court Reporter in the Los Angeles Superior Court system when, for budgetary reasons, all the reporters employed there were laid off.  Jorge was undaunted.  He and his colleagues created a private agency that provides court reporters to the same court system where he used to be an employee!  He and his colleagues have established a sterling reputation with the litigation bar, and they have now expanded into the deposition market.  “There are so many opportunities out there in court reporting,” says Jorge. “If you’re willing to put in the work, good fortune will find you.”
