diane-schollDiane Scholl

Diane grew up in Norfolk, Nebraska, and like a lot of young Nebraskans always said she’d live in Colorado someday. After a five-year detour to Miami, Florida, where she went to court reporting school while working as a court clerk in Dade County, she started her court reporting career in 1978 as an official working with the same judges she had worked with as a clerk. Then in 1980, she finally got her chance to move to Denver, and started working as a freelance reporter for Eileen Hyatt. She sees court reporting as a career where she can be a perpetual student, usually not knowing what she’s going to hear about from one day to the next and, if nothing else, learning about how people handle difficult situations, hopefully with grace. In her free time, Diane spends time with her 23-year- old son Eric and many grown nieces and nephews who have wisely chosen to move to places she likes to visit, including Toronto, New York City, Phoenix, and Santa Barbara. She currently shares her home with three dogs, one planned and two rescued. She is grateful to have found the right niche at Hansen & Company and is proud to work with Joanne and her amazing group of reporters and staff, especially enjoying medical malpractice, construction defect, and court and arbitration assignments.
