I am also happy to do a short, 15 page or less, free trial for new clients to demonstrate my methods and capabilities in lieu of the discounted first job.

New client discount! 

To thank you for showing trust in me as your new proofreader, I am offering a 25%, first job discount for any new client.  All established clients will receive a 10% discount on their first job after referring another client to me.

Communication

Communication is key to any relationship, and this one is no different. I will be cognizant of your needs and will respond to all requests promptly.

If a job is a rush (less than 48 hours) or large (greater than 200 pages), a “heads up” would be appreciated as soon as possible. I work very hard to make sure all your expectations are met, but it does require communication.

Turnaround Time

48 to 72 hours is considered standard and will be charged at the regular rate. This does include Saturdays and Sundays.

“Rough” Transcripts

If transcripts are submitted in a “rough” state, it is harder to find errors and takes more time to proofread. Higher rates may be charged at my discretion if the transcript is not submitted in good condition.

Partnership

Understanding that a court transcript needs to be written verbatim, it is important for us to work as a team. People don’t always speak in a clear manner! Punctuation is very important to ensure readability. I use all of the reference materials that I have listed on my resources page, but I also realize that there are definite preference issues. I will collect a sheet showing your preferences for different punctuation issues and adhere to them. I will work to make our partnership as seamless as possible with the goal of helping you to look your best!

Billing Policies

Invoices are sent out twice a month, on the 1st and the 15th, for established clients and payment is expected within 30 days. New clients and one-off jobs will be billed upon completion of the job, with payment expected within 14 days.  A late fee of $5.00 per overdue week will be applied.

I accept personal checks, PayPal, Visa, or Mastercard.
