Spotlight on Bill Roach, CCR
I am originally from upstate New York. After my first year in college, I moved to Los Angeles to become a musician and write music. I have written a Christmas song called “Hurry Up, Hurry Up, Santa Claus” that was released by Al Jardine, an original member of the Beach Boys. It’s in LA where I met my wife, Carol and we later had our daughter, Savannah in 1992.
Life was good in California but the cost of living and being so far away from family drove us to move back to the south where my wife is from. So in 1995, we packed up and left for Georgia. Thankfully, that was a great decision for us. My wife had friend from high school who worked as a Court Reporter and who suggested I get into legal videography.
I am CLVS certified as well as a certified TrialDirector trainer. In 2009, I created my own software product called ExhibitView Solutions, which is now being widely used in depositions and by many attorneys around the country and abroad. In fact, working with IST has presented the opportunity for clients to utilize the program and request myself as reporter.
IST Management has been just incredible to work for. They pay on time, every time. They are fair, kind and very honest. I think IST does the best job I have seen in communicating with their contractors and the percentage they offer is the best. I am grateful for every job they allow me to cover.
