Maxyne Bursky

Maxyne Bursky, BA, RPR, CRR, CCR has been a court reporter for more than 37 years. She and her husband, Richard, also a court reporter, have freelanced out of the Atlanta area for the past six years. They are Certified Professional Performance Coaches and have mentored many court reporting students. Maxyne has worked as a freelancer in New York and Florida as well as in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York for several years, so she has an understanding of reporting practices both in and out of court.

She has written “Talk to the Hands,” a humorous, practical guide for the newbie reporter that provides easy, yet comprehensive ways to navigate the world of court reporting that are almost never taught in schools. It encourages and welcomes a nervous newcomer to this exciting field, and helps them feel more like a veteran. “Way Off The Record” is Maxyne’s next book, due out this winter, featuring the most unusual (and sometimes downright bizarre) professional assignments that a group of leaders in our field have consented to contribute. If you think you’ve heard it all, listen to them!

Maxyne lectures on the joy of court reporting to steno and voice students, and young professionals in many states. She is also a participant in the Virtual Mentor program sponsored by the NCRA. She is also a member of the board of Casey’s Kids, an organization dedicated to providing library books and supplies to Title I public schools, and has been actively involved in animal rescue for over 15 years.
