Timothy Scott, Owner (California CSR No. 8517)

After graduating from California School of Court Reporting in Santa Ana, California in 1989, Tim started his career in the Orange County area reporting depositions, arbitrations, hearings, city council meetings, civil service commission hearings, and numerous other proceedings where a verbatim transcript was required.

Upon relocating to Bakersfield in 1990, Tim worked for Stoner & Schlenker up until July 1999, at which time he became the owner of the firm.  He has also worked as a pro tem court reporter in Kern County Superior Court, when the court had a shortage of reporters.

Tim's goals are to expand upon the excellent reputation of Stoner & Schlenker by always striving to improve our service, keeping abreast of new technologies that are constantly made available to the court reporting industry.
