It has been said that an army runs on its stomach, and CompuScripts’ army of court reporters knows the importance of a good meal. Depositions can by lengthy, and skipping meals may result in low blood sugar. And according to Piedmont Healthcare, “Low blood sugar causes people to feel irritable, confused and fatigued. The body begins to increase production of cortisol, leaving us stressed and hangry.” These are not symptoms that a court reporter wants to experience during a deposition. So today, we’d like to suggest some South Carolina restaurants for busy court reporters.
The Greenville County Courthouse and many law firms are located in the 29601 area code. Busy court reporters might want to try these restaurants before, during, or after a deposition.
Coffee Underground is the perfect spot to pick up breakfast before the deposition begins. Court reporters may carbo-load on pancakes and pastries or go the protein route with build-your-own omelets. Quiches, salads, and sandwiches are also available for those breaks between depositions. 4 stars on Yelp.
