A Tribute to Allen Edelist

The court reporting profession lost an icon last week … Allen Edelist passed away on May 16, 2018 at the age of 67.  Allen was a generous, loyal and true colleague and friend who dedicated a great deal of his time to the advancement of the court reporting profession.  He was an avid fan of the Los Angeles Angels and Los Angeles Kings who had season tickets for many years and hated to miss a game!  And, of course, those who knew him were well aware of his “groupie side”, following the rock band Procol Harum all over the world to see them perform!  Allen was also a long-term trustee of the Los Angeles School of Law and Paralegal Studies and a member and supporter of the Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles.
