Ginger Brooks – Owner and Realtime Court Reporter
As a native Mississippian, Ginger Brooks knew after attending school in Texas that home was where she wanted to begin her career. In 1985 Ginger opened Brooks Court Reporting and by 1989, Brooks Court Reporting became the first firm to offer “Realtime” services in the state of Mississippi.
In the past 30 years Ginger has grown Brooks Court Reporting to be one of the largest court reporting firms incorporated in the state with offices in Jackson, Meridian and Gulfport, Mississippi. Ginger is a Certified Realtime Reporter and is Certified in Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama.
Brooks has since opened another office in New Orleans, Louisiana. Brooks Court Reporting offers statewide and nationwide coverage to meet your total litigation needs.
In 2014, Ginger opened Realtime Advantage to provide the same level of service in New York City.
We work closely with all clients and take pride in our communication, project management, and execution abilities. With our considerable experience in a variety of cases, Brooks Court Reporting will deliver.
Brooks Court Reporting is committed to sourcing the best professionals in the industry to ensure we provide prime service and your ideal outcome.
Our court reporters and videographers are skilled and precise, taking care to provide you with accurate data and information required for you to offer optimal services to your clients.
Erica Jolley – Client Services Manager
Erica is a graduate of Hinds Community College with an A.A.S. in Paralegal Technology. She joined Brooks Court Reporting in September 2016. She is a member of the Mississippi Paralegal Association. Erica resides in Lake, MS, with her husband, Colby, and their three daughters, Olivia, Isla and Jules.
Erica is the Client Services Manager and the Reporter Coordinator for Brooks Court Reporting. She is directly involved with the day to day tasks of calendaring depositions, scheduling conference rooms for depositions and coordinating all our clients’ needs. Erica primarily works in the Meridian office but also handles advertising and client relations from the Jackson office.
Erica’s favorite thing about her job is helping clients. “When I receive a call from a client that needs immediate help and I can give them the help they need, it is very gratifying to me. I love to hear, ‘Thank you so much. You are a lifesaver.’” That is important to me as the Client Services Manager for Brooks Court Reporting because that client remembers that we were able to help them in a time of need and will continue to be a valued client to our company.
In her spare time, Erica enjoys watching The University of Alabama football, Nashville Predators hockey, spending time with her family and traveling around the country.
