Skilled Professionals Behind Our Court Reporting Practice

Meet The Prose Team


Toni M. Salopek

Owner, RMR

My name is Toni Salopek. I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio and I have been happily married since 1979. I have been in the court reporting industry since 1985, from proudly reporting to serving as Vice President for a national court reporting agency. Although I've been from the depo room to the board room in this industry, our clients are constantly letting us know what is important to them and I'm always listening.


Melissa Renaldo

Office Manager

Melissa has been in our industry since 2007 and with the Prose Family since March 2014. With her vast experience, Melissa can help you with just about any request. Melissa is a Florida native and is the proud mother of two and is thrilled to be  grandmother to two precious boys and a beautiful baby girl!


Joseph Kozak,

Video & I.T. Manager

Joe has been with Prose since 2010 and we don't know what we'd do without him! Joe is our Videographer as well as IT support. He sometimes dreads Monday mornings when all of our computers seem to be still on "weekend" mode! Joe has been happily married for over 25 years and is the proud father of two sons... one of whom has joined our Prose Court Reporting Staff.


Cone (pronounced “Connie”) Bustos

Financial Analyst

Originally from beautiful Chile, Cone has been in the court reporting industry since 1997 and I have known and worked with Cone since 1998.  Cone does the billing and financials for Prose.  She is my mentor and my dearest friend and I don’t know what I would do without her.  She is also very stubborn and refuses to provide a photo.
