Thomas Fallarino, founder and president of Empire Legal Reporting and Empire Executive Offices, grew up in Smithtown, New York. At age 13, Thomas began testing his work ethic and entrepreneurial skills by venturing out into the Long Island Sound digging and selling fresh clams to local restaurants. Mr. Fallarino began his legal career working several years for a large national court reporting firm. With the encouragement, support and trust from several prestigious Florida law firms seeking a better alternative for their court reporting needs, Mr. Fallarino had the vision to set out on his own. The only issue was a twelve month non-compete he had to abide by and in 2008 banks were not lending money to new companies. With a pregnant wife and their first child on the way, Thomas had the courage to leave a stable job in a terrible economy and job market, sold his home and set out to build his Empire. In 2009 he officially launched Empire Legal Reporting in the Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale markets and never looked back.
