Fern Lowes - Transcriptionist
With over 28 years of experience working in law firms in New Zealand and London, for barristers (including King’s Counsels), arbitrators, mediators, adjudicators and private investigators, I offer my services as a transcription word processor. I am experienced in all types of law, am extremely efficient, accurate, trustworthy and confidential. I have always had excellent feedback on my work and was handpicked from the London law firm I was working with, with over 700 staff at the time, to accompany a partner and his team to Jamaica, on two separate occasions, to work for the Jamaican Government.
As well as general legal correspondence and court documentation, I am experienced in transcribing all types of interviews (phone recordings, face to face meeting recordings or video interview recordings). I am also experienced in completing judgments for mediators/arbitrators/adjudicators.
I have a 24-hour turnaround of work and am able to convert any type of voice or video recording so that it is compatible with my system (Olympus Dictation System). My charge out rate is $50.00 per hour plus GST and I am able to offer members a one hour discount for the initial use of my services.
