Kimberly Causlin has been a court reporter since 1990 and has been working with Mike Mobley Reporting since 1992.
From Kimberly’s perspective:
As a court reporter, my most interesting case was a young man who had been convicted armed robbery/murder and while serving his time, he studied to achieve his high school diploma, bachelor’s degree and attended law school. Although he completed law school and he could complete the bar exam, there was no guarantee he could be licensed as an attorney because he had a felony. So he petitioned the Bar Association. I reported his petition which was before a board of a Federal judge and prominent local attorneys. What stands out about this was he knew how to spell the legal terms and what they meant but he couldn’t pronounce them because he had studied out of books. He was eventually able to take the bar and become an attorney.
I was in retail management for 14 years and attended a night court reporting part-time program for 3 years, decided to invest in my future, so at the age of 31 I quit my full-time job and enrolled at Clark State Community College and received my associate’s degree in 1989. I worked as an independent contractor in Cincinnati for two years before becoming an employee of Mike Mobley Reporting in 1992.
I was born and raised in Springfield, Ohio, but have lived in the Dayton area my adult life and currently reside in Xenia, Ohio, with my husband Steve. Outside of work I enjoy time with family and friends, reading, water sports and traveling. I also enjoy participating in fund raising for the Relay for Life campaign and other local fund raisers.
