To our clients, friends, supporters,
employees and court reporters, I want
to wish you all a Happy New Year!
So judging by the cover, you have probably
concluded that team Magna is celebrating our
first two digit birthday, or perhaps
better said, our big 10 year anniversary.
I know it may sound cliché, but it really
does feel like yesterday that I was sitting
in a conference room with Mark Calzaretta
making all our Jerry Maguire phone calls.
So where are we now? Well, for starters,
thanks to our loyal clients and staff, we have won
dozens of awards in the Legal Intelligencer, National
Law Journal and The New York Law Journal.
We’ve built a nationwide network of court reporters
that have allowed us to cover depositions in every
US Zip Code and we have launched new online jury
research tools that have changed the way the legal
and claims community uses focus groups and mock
Through our conference program, we have created
a unique series of edutainment type CLE’s that
have raised thousands of dollars for The Children’s
Hospital of Philadelphia, while teaching attorneys
new trial skills.
Most recently, we opened a new office in the Big
Apple (that’s NYC in case you didn’t know) that
features (again cliché ) state of the art deposition
suites and a cutting edge graphics design studio.
So here’s what I’m thinking… I love what I do for a
living and another 10 years with you all would be a
real business blessing. I am fortunate that
each day I get to work I still have the same
energy as when Mark and I were making
Keeping my eye on 2017, here are three
- Magna will break the record of winning multiple
new categories for ALM’s “Best Of” surveys.
- Our damages assessment tool called Jury
Evaluator will become the go-to litigation
support tool for cases both big and small.
- We will raise the bar in the edutainment CLE
arena with new content blending education and
entertainment, while continuing to raise money
for The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Happy New Year and Happy Anniversary Magna
