Huseby acquires Asheville, North Carolina court reporting firm Sperling & Barraco

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Court Reporting and Litigation Services firm Huseby Inc. (www.Huseby.com) has announced a definitive agreement under which it would acquire Sperling & Barraco of Asheville, North Carolina.

David Sperling, who will join the team, is the former CEO and president and renowned real-time captioner for "The Oprah Winfrey Show." For the past 16 years he has provided real-time captioning to UNC-TV, North Carolina's statewide public broadcast system. Also joining the team is former U.S. House and Senate reporter Gerri Barraco.

"Sperling & Barraco has always been proud of our ability to communicate with our customers,” Sperling said. “As the industry has grown, we've realized our need to mature into an organization that provides a more consultative approach and has the technology and service that today's law firm needs to compete and win. Huseby brings that."

The Huseby team has begun consolidation of Sperling & Barraco's Asheville office at 53 Orange Street, near I-240 exits 5A and 5B just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, which has been a staple in the Asheville Community since 1984.  

This consolidation will instantly provide Sperling & Barraco clients access to Huseby's new Opus 2 Magnum 6.0.  This powerful yet affordable collaborative cloud-based tool empowers law firms firm-wide transcript case analysis, unparalleled mobile tools and a host of time-saving workflow features enabling firms to substantially reduce their installed-software footprint, including full integration with Relativity® or Xera® e-discovery review platforms.

“I feel the opportunity to meld the high standards of quality transcripts with personal, at-your-disposal, 24-7 customer service, coupled with Huseby's state-of-the-art technology is a win-win,” Barraco said. “The highly motivated clients we work with every day, and our highly qualified court reporters and videographers will all benefit from the technological and financial strength of our new partner as well."

In addition to Opus 2 Magnum, the move gives attorneys in Asheville access to other Huseby state-of-the-art services, including

-- Huseby Connect, which provides an ideal virtual deposition environment by bringing together the most effective, low-cost way to communicate with counsel and depose witnesses anywhere in the world.

-- Huseby Web services, which allow lawyers, paralegals and secretaries to search case names and case numbers, or word search their entire repository of transcripts.

-- Huseby's mobile app, which brings deposition scheduling, calendar management and transcript/exhibit downloading to mobile devices of mobile attorneys who need resources at their fingertips.

City confidential Asheville: Despite 'Happiest Place' designation, complaints of police brutality, working conditions, E. coli outbreak

Beautiful, bucolic Asheville, North Carolina is an eastern destination because of the mild climate stemming from its location in the middle of the beautiful Appalachian mountain range.

According to Wikipedia, Asheville gets rave reviews from publications, including “Modern Maturity” (The 50 Most Alive Places To Be), “AmericanStyle” magazine (America's Top 25 Arts Destinations), “Self magazine” (Happiest City for Women), and “AARP Magazine” (Best Places to Reinvent Your Life).

If that weren’t enough, the book “The Geography of Bliss” called the city one of the happiest places in the United States. But that may not be the case if you’re a former employee of Shogun Buffet and Hibachi Grill, on the wrong end of the law or at the wrong state fair petting sick animals.

This is the 14th in a series of posts on cases tied to cities in which Huseby offices offer litigation services, including court reporting, Web conferencing, video conferencing, video depositions, and more. Schedule Huseby services here.
