In addition to her duties as a working reporter and company manager, Jeanne maintains a high degree of commitment to her profession, having served on numerous committees for the Virginia Court Reporters Association and as the Chief Examiner in Richmond for a number of years for the NCRA testing program. She was elected president of the VCRA in 1995/1996, and in 2003 received the prestigious Frank G. Tayloe Award for her many contributions to the profession.

Cheryl Campbell, the office manager, epitomizes the longevity and professionalism of Cook & Wiley, having been with the firm 25 years.

“I am writing to offer my highest recommendation of Cook and Wiley. I have used them for over 30 years and cannot say enough good things about all aspects of their service. They are used exclusively by our firm and they never fail to do a great job.”

“I have been a trial lawyer for 34 years and have worked with dozens of court reporters. Lori Gerczak is hands down the best. She’s accurate and completely dependable. As important in long cases, she has a great attitude. She has reported several trial days for me that went past midnight and never lost her sense of humor.”
