About Alison Barberi
I have over 20 years’ experience as a Business Development Executive with a history of success working with law firms. I am committed to providing my clients with exceptional customer service and meeting all of their court reporting needs.
A little about me, professionally
Prior to joining Planet Depos, I worked as a Client Development Consultant with Findlaw & Super Lawyers, A Thomson Reuters Business. I consulted with numerous law firms in the Maryland-Washington, DC area providing key business development strategies to grow their practice. After 10 years at Findlaw, I joined Planet Depos and never looked back. I’m fortunate to be part of a company that places the needs of the client first, while still valuing their employees. Planet Depos is a leader in the court reporting industry. They hold themselves to the highest professional standards, and I feel a sense of pride being a part of this company. I wake up every day looking forward to contributing to the growth and success of Planet Depos.
A little about me, personally
I grew up in Montgomery County, Maryland, where I lived with my mother and two sisters. As a single mother, my mother modeled integrity and service, and those are the values that I live by and bring to all aspects of my life. My mother understood that hard work and determination go hand in hand, and she instilled those values in her daughters. Growing up I fell in love with swimming. Ever since I stood on the starting block at my first swim meet, I felt the nudge of competition. That competitive edge, along with my sincere interest in people, has led to my professional success.
I have been married to my wonderful husband, George, for over 30 years. We have two adult sons, Tyler and Michael. This year we added Gracie, a yellow lab, to our family. As parents of two highly athletic boys, my husband and I spent many hours volunteering at and supporting our sons’ games and competitions throughout high school and college. We now enjoy spending time together at our second home in Bethany Beach, Delaware. You can find the four of us on any given Saturday at the beach, throwing the ball around and chasing after Gracie. We also enjoy sporting events (Go Caps! Go WFT! Go NATS!), concerts, and cooking together.

– Partner, Large Law Firm
I and my law firm have had a long-standing relationship with Planet Depos. We have come to know and love all of them--especially Alison Barberi. There are not enough positive adjectives to describe her. She is helpful, professional, responsive, accommodating, and reassuring. On more than one occasion, I have had to reach out directly to Alison at the last minute, and she has always been able to calm my nerves and handle the situation without being rattled herself. Alison embodies all of the traits of a great work ethic: great attitude, character, communication, cooperation, organized, respectful and she is definitely a team player. I would have her on my team any day of the week! This COVID-19 pandemic has been a maddening, yet Alison and the Planet Depos team have made this transition to the “new normal” a seamless one from the very beginning.

I’ve always loved Planet Depos and their willingness to provide the best court reporting services. What makes them even better is my account manager, Alison Barbieri. From day one, Alison has gone above and beyond to make sure our firm’s needs are always met. If something goes awry I know I can pick up the phone and call her right away and whatever issue I’m having, will be handled immediately and effectively. Alison brings an enthusiasm and stellar attitude that makes you feel like you’ve known her your whole life. Personally and professionally she is the best!
I’d like to thank Alison Barberi for her hard work this past year. I love working with her! My attorneys frequently have special requests when scheduling depo’s. There is never a need to worry about last minute issues. I just contact Alison, let her know what I need and it’s done. In addition, she stays on top of everything ensuring that I get my transcripts and marked exhibits back ASAP.

Alison is a wonderful and key extension of our legal team. The best at Planet Depo. She is extremely conscientious of our firms time and reputation; she is always available to answer questions and a delight to work with. She’s smart and quick. We are so grateful that we have Alison at Planet Depos.
Alison and the Planet Depos team took over for another vendor in the middle of a series of depositions and didn’t miss a beat. The entire team is responsive and professional - we’ll turn to them first in the future.
“Alison provides excellent customer service. She is always friendly and highly responsive—even once assisting with a matter on a weekend evening. She and her team at Planet Depos work hard to ensure that remote depositions run smoothly, and have been amenable to the feedback we have given. I have been very impressed with their professionalism.”
“ I cannot say enough good things about Planet Depos, Alison Barberi, my rep, and the entire PD team! Excellent customer service is apparent from top-to-bottom with Planet Depos. Even through these challenging times, their professionalism and efficiency has not waivered. I have been in the legal business for 30 years, and have used PD as my “go-to” reporting company for many of those years. I know when scheduling with PD, I will not have any concerns at all – ever! My depositions will be scheduled promptly and correctly, and a reliable, efficient reporter will be present at the deposition (or these days remotely). Having a reliable reporting company that I know will take care of my scheduling and any issues that arise takes so much stress off of my already very stressful job. Extending a courtesy conference room to me when I need to schedule a meeting with clients on occasion means the world to me as well, is extremely good customer service, and another reason PD is my go-to company. Alison runs a very smooth, sailing ship, and I was so happy when she joined the fleet! I consider her not only my PD rep, but a friend. She cares about her customers and it truly shows in her interactions with us. Planet Depos has a wonderful reputation, and it is well deserved.”
Alison is wonderful to work with! She is incredibly responsive and was helpful with every request I had, both before and after depositions. She makes sure clients have the tools they need for a seamless and successful deposition experience.
Alison is a pleasure to work with – professional, experienced, knowledgeable – she gets the job done. She has a wonderful and approachable personality, and makes herself accessible to her clients. We highly recommend Planet Depos and Alison is an amazing asset to their team and a joy to work with!
