David Roberts, Chief Operating Officer
David Roberts has been immersed in the court reporting culture his entire life. He joined the company almost 15 years ago as AWR’s In-house Legal Videographer and went on to graduate Cum Laude from Northwood University with a Bachelor of Business Management and Court Reporting degree. He was selected by Northwood University as a Who’s Who recipient his senior year.
David earned the National Court Reporters Association’s Certified Manager of Reporting Services certification in 2002 and is currently a Certified Realtime Reporter and Certified Legal Videography Specialist.
After over a decade in the legal industry, David saw a need for lawyers to create visually compelling cases for judges and juries that included graphics and trial technology. He established AWR’s sister company, AWR Trial Solutions, to assist lawyers with their trial presentation needs – from courtroom setup to sophisticated and compelling legal presentations. Under his direction, AWR Trial Solutions remains in the forefront of emerging trial technology and legal graphics and timelines.
David is a member of the Society for the Technological Advancement of Reporting and the National Court Reporters Association. He lives in Mt. Pleasant with his daughters Madison and Peyton, son Kelley, wife Brooks and dogs Rusty and Roscoe. When not in the office, he can be found on the golf course or mastering the art of cooking on his grill.
