Professional Court Reporters was established by court reporter, Susan Armitage in May of 1987. As the company expanded, our North York head office was opened in 1991 to better serve our growing client base. Throughout the years PCR expanded to Markham and Mississauga, while also renovating our North York location to include additional boardrooms.

In 2006, Karen Sparkes adopted the role of Owner and President.  An experienced court reporter herself, Karen brought her ambition, leadership, and passion for the legal industry to the table.  In this new era, Professional Court Reporters has further expanded its head office, as well as opening a highly coveted location in Downtown Toronto, right by Union Station.


As Professional Court Reporters continues to grow, we have introduced new and innovative reporting and transcription techniques to the legal industry.  Our high quality recordings and transcripts are accompanied by our exclusive E-Legal transcript services, which brings a new level of reliability and accuracy to our services.
