Lisa Buell

Principal | RPR, CRR, CCR
Realtime Systems Administrator
Federal Clearance

Since the inception of Buell, customer service has always been my highest priority.  Not only have I been fortunate enough to work with many of the Northwest's leading attorneys, but I am also surrounded by an amazing team who share the same customer service values.

Lisa launched Buell Realtime Reporting in 1997 to provide state-of-the-art realtime reporting services to Seattle’s legal community.  Her reputation as a highly respected leader in the industry is built on a continuing commitment to technology, outstanding customer service, and the delivery of accurate and timely transcripts.

In addition to covering depositions, arbitrations, and hearings, Lisa manages and oversees the Buell team, which has grown from two reporters to a team of dedicated, skilled professionals.  Lisa’s experience in realtime reporting spans all types of litigation, including numerous multi-party cases with up to 10 attorneys receiving a realtime feed.  Lisa also has federal clearance.

Having worked for several small court reporting agencies in the 1990s, Lisa became one of the first five Certified Realtime Reporters in the state of Washington.  Early in her career, she worked for ASAP Sports as a freelance realtime sports court reporter providing instant transcripts of player press conferences at PGA/USGA golf tournaments, including the U.S. Open, U.S. Senior Open, U.S. Amateur, Memorial Tournament, and Players Championship.

Lisa enjoys spending time with her husband cooking, gardening, and travelling.  Lisa’s Maltese, Dash, comes to the office almost daily and is Buell’s CCO (Chief Canine Officer).
