Founder, David Feldman brings over 50 years of industry specific experience. Early in his career, he was lucky enough to be the reporter for the Knapp Commission Hearings, the investigation into corruption in the NYCPD. The hearings lasted over two years and it gave him the opportunity to be on television almost every day, creating a reputation for himself. This lead to working for first Gov. Rockefeller and then Vice-President Rockefeller when he chaired the Commission on Critical Choices for Americans. During this period he co-founded Manhattan Reporting which later became the NY office of LegaLink/Merrill Corp. He also hired and trained some of the current top people at Veritext as well as several others who went on to form their own successful agencies. Most notably, he was the first President and Chief Operating Officer of Esquire (now owned by Gallo), which was the largest court reporting company in the world during his tenure. It is worth noting that David Feldman has been an industry innovator throughout his career. Going back decades, he was the first principal in New York to acquire a computer when all others were afraid of this brand new technology. This enabled him to appeal to the then specialists at Penn Central Railroad which was going through a bankruptcy and used his computers for approximately 5 to 15 depositions per day for over a year. He also was one of the first in the United States to offer LiveNote when no one else was interested in it. LiveNote originated in Europe and was founded by Graham Smith. Graham and David have been friends for over 25 years and David was one of the first to offer LiveNote in the US. Our strong relationship with LiveNote continues to this day. David was the first principal to sell his company to Esquire in 1993 which began the consolidation in the industry which continues to this day. During his tenure at Esquire, he oversaw dozens of acquisitions of court reporting companies of various sizes. David left Esquire in 1997 and then founded David Feldman Worldwide in 2002 with his children.
