I met Jennifer after I realized that I needed to take my boutique law firm to a larger platform. She helped me flesh out what I was looking for in a firm and helped me find the right fit for me and my team. Throughout the entire process, Jen was professional, knowledgeable and always had my best interests at heart. In fact, when I was concerned about a compensation issue a full year after joining the new firm, I reached out to Jen and she offered me advice. She is a great resource.
Jennifer is a consummate professional who excels in her industry because she knows the jobs and she knows the people. She is relatable and cares about her clients. She is an asset and a resource to the legal community.
While I am a divorce lawyer, I represent many clients from Poland. I saw my practice expanding beyond the divorce space in Eastern Europe, specifically focusing on business development as many of the clients that I was divorcing had business ties to Poland. Jen listened to my career goals and while introducing me to Lindabury McCormick where I am a Partner in the Matrimonial Group, she helped negotiate me being named the Managing Director of the International law Group, which helped open further doors in the global market. She is not just a professional legal recruiter – she is a career builder!
Jen encouraged me to interview for the firm that I am now with – and it’s a firm I never would have considered. She told me to trust her – and to take the interview and to meet the attorneys. It wound up being a perfect fit, the best move ever.
Jen’s knowledge of the industry was impressive. She also seemed to understand exactly where I was coming from and had a good relationship with the people at the firm where she was trying to place me. It was a very personalized approach.
Recruiters often approach the engagement… and they try to fit you into the preexisting list of openings as opposed to – and this is what I think sets Jen apart – asking what the lawyer is looking for in a law firm.
Jen’s reputation seemed to be such within the industry that these firms were happy to work with her, and that worked to my benefit.
Jen immediately understood what I was looking for, and very quickly lined up a number – probably four or five – very suitable firms. It was during the pandemic, and so I thought the responsiveness, the accuracy, and the ability to line up several interviews, was great.
Jen’s responsiveness and the ability to focus on what I was looking for as opposed to what was available was impressive. I said, “This is what I am looking for.,” and she didn’t waste my time – she did a great job.
