Caryl Blevins has been a court reporter since 1983 and has been with Mike Mobley Reporting since.
From Caryl’s perspective:
Background: I’m from Springfield, Ohio. I grew up there and worked at Kroger as a bagger and a cashier through high school and college. I graduated from Clark Technical College’s court reporting with an Associate’s degree in applied sciences with special emphasis in court and conference reporting, in 1983 and after an internship started reporting that August with Mike Mobley Reporting and eventually moved to Dayton.
Being a Court Reporter: I enjoy the fact that I have a different case generally every day and I work with interesting people and take interesting cases. I’ve done a murder trial, an arson trial, a death penalty habeas trial, a trial of one biker gang suing another, I took one of the federal trials that set Ohio’s law on abortion, and that was just while I was covering for another reporter in court. I’ve done divorce, personal-injury, Workers’ Compensation, contract law, patent infringement, trademark infringement, employment discrimination, sexual discrimination, medical malpractice, wrongful death, and a myriad of other cases in depositions.
Personal Life: I’m single and have three dogs and three cats I spoil beyond all reason, and I enjoy spending time with my nieces and nephews, reading murder mysteries and thrillers, doing crossword puzzles, crocheting, quilting, baking, working on landscaping projects, and walking my dogs.
