PHIPPS REPORTING MERGES WITH MATRIARCH OF COURT REPORTING IN FLORIDA
Florida Court Reporting Firm Announces Seventh Acquisition
WEST PALM BEACH, FL-Christine Phipps, CEO of Phipps Reporting, Inc., has announced the acquisition of Everman & Everman, a 40-year-old West Palm Beach court reporting firm. Everman represents the seventh acquisition by Phipps Reporting.
Judy Everman began her court reporting career in 1965, and by approximately 1976 she began Everman & Everman. Her daughter, Amy Everman, raised in the court reporting business, later joined Judy as a partner, thus becoming Everman & Everman. Everman & Everman bring a substantial client list to Phipps’ growing West Palm Beach presence.
“We chose Phipps Reporting because it was important to us to find a locally owned reporting firm with which to merge our firm that would include our reporters and staff and that adhered to high moral standards and ethics, and we found that with Christine Phipps.” Judy Everman said, “I wanted to merge with a firm that upheld the ethical conduct that I had fought so hard to institute not only in the state of Florida but nationally. I have watched Christine over the last five years as she grew Phipps Reporting, contributing back to the reporting profession through her service to the National Court Reporters Association, and that’s when I knew she embodied everything I was looking for. Christine very much reminded me of myself.”
“Judy Everman is an icon in the court reporting profession. My whole career, Judy has been known as the go-to person for guidelines, ethical opinions, and as a historian for our profession,” noted Christine Phipps. “I was honored to not only be handpicked by Judy as the only firm she would want to merge with but what an incredible compliment that a matriarch like Judy would want to hand over the reins to me.”
