She strives to make sure that her clients have what they need, when they need it, using all the current technology, including real-time translation.
In 2010, seeing the change in the courts of California providing reporters in civil cases, Barrie saw a need and looked for a way she could fill it. She put together a team of experienced, skilled reporters, and Bay Area Trial Reporters was born.
