To place an order for a written transcript, you must fill out a Transcript Ordering form here. Transcript Orders can be e-filed, mailed, or brought in over the counter. The court will serve the official Court Reporter, Veronica Flores, with a copy of the order. Ms. Flores is responsible for preparing all transcripts for proceedings which she recorded. You may contact Ms. Flores at:
Room 430b, U.S. Courthouse
District Court of Guam
520 West Soledad Ave.
Hagatna, GU 96910
Tel: (671) 472-8655
If Ms. Flores was not present at the hearing, the Clerk’s Office will arrange with one of the following transcribers to produce the transcript. You must choose the transcriber. The District Court of Guam will not make a recommendation of any transcription company or transcribers to be used. It is therefore important that you fill in the Alternate Transcriber section. After the Clerk’s Office transmits the audio file(s) to the transcriber, you will be given instructions by the Clerk’s Office to arrange payment with that transcriber.
