About Cindy Miklos
With over 20 years of experience in legal services and business development, I understand the unique needs, challenges and priorities of my clients, and I am committed to world class customer service with an eye toward quality, customer satisfaction and success!
I was honored to join Planet Depos in 2016 as an Account Executive and viewed it as unique opportunity to join a world class organization. When Jennifer Parratt was appointed Director of Sales at Planet Depos, I wisely followed her when an opportunity for an account executive opened in the Pittsburgh market. Jennifer and I worked together for years at the FindLaw Division of Thompson Reuters and reuniting with her at Planet Depos was the best career decision I ever made. My career at Planet Depos has allowed me to continue my passion for working in the essential legal services market.
I am extremely honored to work with such a wonderful team of professionals in the Pittsburgh market including my co-workers, court reporters and technicians. We are proud business partners of the Western Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association, Pennsylvania Association for Justice, Pittsburgh Paralegals Association and Pittsburgh Legal Administrators Association.
My 20 years of marketing and legal services experience has positioned me to have a unique understanding of what it means to be “customer focused.” During my tenure as a Client Development Consultant at FindLaw, I helped law firms across Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio create web-based marketing strategies and business plans in an ever competitive legal industry. I enjoyed this role and built an expansive network of clients and colleagues across the country. Now I look forward to a promising future working with Planet Depos customers to deliver high quality court report, videography and trial services.
A Little about Me, Personally
I was born and raised in Carroltown, PA and attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania and where I obtained a BS in Marketing. My early professional life started as an entrepreneur where I owned, operated and managed a boutique specializing in formal attire and women’s fashion. After selling my business, I entered the world of advertising when I joined Verizon SuperPages as a Client Development Specialist. It was in this role where I learned to identify, evaluate and develop marketing products for small business owners, each with their own unique challenges and needs. I left Verizon in 2003 and joined FindLaw, where I met Jennifer Parratt and followed her here to Plant Depos.
I have been married to my husband, Angelo, since 2003 and we have three wonderful children: Anna, Anthony & Abbey. We have recently added two puppies to our household named Sally and Darla. We enjoy the outdoors and spend the winter skiing, the summer swimming and fishing, and the fall hiking around the mountains near Spruce Creek, PA. We are all avid sports fans and of course we love our hometown Pittsburgh teams – Steelers, Penguins and Pirates. I was born into a die-hard Penn State family and I can forgive my husband for being the only Pitt fan in the family.
My real passion in life is working on fundraising for charities that are near and dear to my heart, including JDRF and Pennies from Heaven. My youngest daughter Abbey was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2017 when she was eight years old. My daughter’s diagnosis changed my life and I am proud to join with other parents of T1D children in supporting the JDRF and its fundraising efforts to find a cure to this disease that impacts so many families across the world. I am proud and honored to organize an annual team for “One Walk” walk-a-thon to raise money for the Western Pennsylvania chapter of JDRF. I am the current chair for the 2021 JDRF Fundraising Gala, and plan on joining with other parents of T1D children in dedicating my time and efforts until we finally have a cure.
What It Means to Work With Me

When you work with me and my trusted PD team, you will find that we go above and beyond a “customer-focused” approach. I strive to ensure that individual attention and detail is given to each of my clients, because each of their service needs is unique. I partner with my clients to build a customized service plan that ensures the highest level of court reporting and trial service success, built on quality, expertise and experience. When you partner with me, you receive my personal assurance that your firm will receive the dedication, energy and commitment it deserves.
Cindy Miklos and I have worked together for a number of years. She has continued to impress me in each role that she has played in the development of our law firm and my career as a lawyer. When I was an owner of a litigation boutique firm, Cindy worked with our firm to develop marketing and internet strategies which got us placed on Google page 1 in every conceivable search term or phrase. She was a master of the internet search strategy. Cindy, now assists me and our Houston Harbaugh firm with products and services from Planet Depos. She has helped to make Planet the go to court reporting and litigation support team in town. They continually work to support lawyers in an increasingly complex environment and she is both the consummate salesperson for Planet, and a great support person for firms working to strengthen their place in the legal market. She is always - always about teamwork. She cares as much about the law firms as she does about her employer and brings programs and educational speakers to our firm over lunch to help us learn. I heartily recommend Cindy Miklos and Planet Depos for their great work and counsel.

Cindy and her team at Planet Depos have been a tremendous asset for both me and my clients. Recently I needed her help with numerous out of state depositions for use at a trial I just completed. A lot of what we needed was last minute. Cindy and Planet depos helped orchestrate everything flawlessly. During high stress times, the last thing you need to worry about is deposition logistics. Cindy ensured I had one less thing to worry about. From the court reporting to video taping and conferencing everything was perfect. Cindy is terrific to work with and I could not recommend her more highly! Thanks Cindy!
