Yvette Smith Samuel, President
Yvette firmly believes that reporting agencies should be owned and run by court reporter(s) – because we have a better understanding of what staff and clients need.
She began a rigorous court reporting program at Peirce University in 1987 and graduated with honors in 1989.
Yvette worked diligently over the next few years to achieve many professional goals until her entrepreneurial nature could not resist starting up Summit Court Reporting in 1993.
Yvette also felt it ultimately important that her role is more as a mentor and teacher to many reporters on staff, since she has the experience of being a court reporter.
In addition to overseeing the challenging day-to-day operations of Summit, Yvette takes pride in being a partner and shareholder of the NNRC since 2003, when she was vetted and sworn in to conform to the highest ethical standards of the Court Reporting Profession by NNRC’s Board of Directors and Summit became NNRC’s exclusive Gold affiliate for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and surrounding regions. NNRC is an elite court reporting affiliate group that is the oldest independent combined partnership in the world for court reporting firm owners who share in similar philosophies and adhere to stringent procedures and quality.
Since 2003, Yvette has held positions on the NNRC Marketing Committee and also the NNRC Membership Committee.
Summit has been so helpful conducting remote depositions during Covid19. Yvette and her entire team make the process so easy. Everyone – witness, court reporter, defense attorneys were in the safety of their own homes, and we were able to show the witness documents and videos for them to review. Conducting depositions remotely will be the new norm and I am thankful that Summit is here to help.

James A. Francis, Esq.
We have a very active litigation department and Summit Court Reporting could not be more responsive to our needs. Besides their professionalism, the reporters are a cut above the rest in their appearance, demeanor and competency. Either fortunately or unfortunately, I have been practicing for over 35 years and probably have experienced the services of most if not all of the past and current court reporting services that cover Philadelphia and its contiguous counties and Summit truly rates among the best.

You can always rely upon Summit Court Reporting to provide the highest quality service in the court reporting business. Their reporters are professional, courteous, and efficient. The transcripts are mistake-free and always delivered on time. They also are able to provide a court reporter in a pinch when you have one of those unexpected, hastily-scheduled depositions.
