If you ask any court reporter who works as an independent contractor why they like being a freelance court reporter, you’ll receive different answers:
- Some will tell you they like the flexibility.
- Others will tell you they like the income.
- Many will tell you they like working with attorneys and witnesses, and enjoy their role in the legal process.
To enjoy these perks of being an independent contractor requires that you’re able to successfully manage your own business. When you decide to become an independent contractor for your court reporting assignments, you essentially are now a small business owner.
