We begin by ensuring that we fully understand your platform, culture and vision for broadening your talent base.  We then enthusiastically share this information with the attorneys in which you might have interest.  A full picture of each candidate’s current and historical practice, background, experience and motivation for a change is included in every introduction to you.


Esther is knowledgeable and clearly knows her market. She presented opportunities that I hadn't considered, but never pushed in a direction that I didn't want to go. I felt confident that I was placing my career in the hands of someone who valued my career and understood me.
