Meet our Executive Team


Maryanne Wagner, RPR, FPR

Originally from Ohio, Maryanne moved to  Fort Myers and attended Bishop Verot High School. She started her career in 1984 in Miami, Florida, reporting Federal Grand Jury proceedings in some very high profile cases. She now lives in Cape Coral, Florida.

The 32-year veteran proudly maintains the Registered Professional Reporter and Florida Professional Reporter designations, which impose rigorous standards for speed, accuracy, court procedure and technological expertise and professionalism.

Merit takes pride in its standard six-day transcript turnaround. "Upon opening our firm, Debbie and  I felt there was a need for personal service in the legal community. I am proud to say we have exceeded our goals and expectations."

In her free time, Maryanne enjoys working out, and loves to watch her youngest son play college basketball at Lagrange College in Georgia.


Debbie Cail

Originally from historic Rochester, Minnesota, Debbie Cail is pleased to call sunny Southwest Florida home. She has more than 35 years of experience in varying court reporting fields including transcription, scoping, scheduling and office management.

When she and Maryanne opened Merit Court Reporting in 2008, they were motivated to provide a fresh approach to court reporting in the local community with a strong focus on professionalism, integrity and quality.

Debbie is pleased to have exceeded their objectives over the last decade while providing efficient, personal service to every one of their clients, which sometimes requires flexibility and creative thinking. She said, “It isn’t uncommon that scheduling glitches send attorneys scrambling for court reporters at the last minute. Many times, we are able to shift scheduling to accommodate these requests.”

In her spare time, Debbie enjoys spending time with her grandchildren, traveling and boating.

Executive Team

At Merit Court Reporting we understand that outstanding client service comes down to the quality of our people. Our mission is simple, “We are committed to serving our clients with the highest level of professionalism, integrity and impartiality.” All of our court reporters, videographers, client service personnel, and client relationship managers are dedicated to creating the best client experience possible. You can count on EXPERIENCE at Merit Court Reporting.

Some of the most experienced, technology-savvy certified reporters work for Merit Court Reporting. They are a core part of the Merit Court Reporting team and the challenge of complex cases from national clients as well as traditional cases from local law firms, governments and corporations.

Many of the reporters you see every day have been with us since the beginning. They know the needs of our clients with whom they work and often anticipate those needs. Clients who work with these reporters year after year have come to rely on the high quality of their work. The result is a deep trust and understanding that creates long-lasting relationships on both sides.
