What People Are Saying

“David is the ultimate professional, and has a unique ability to match a professional’s background and aspirations, with his corporate and law firm clients’ requirements. Making the connection is not David’s ultimate goal, however. He works with candidates and clients in a detailed and approachable manner, to structure resumes so that they best represent the candidate, to keep candidates informed in a real-time fashion as to job status, interview schedule, feedback, and ultimately offer negotiations – all the while being candid, accessible, and honest. If there is one word to characterize the acumen, skill set, and sixth-sense David Garber brings to the legal recruiting industry, that word is INTEGRITY.”

Benjamin Moore & Co.

“One of Melissa’s greatest strengths is she takes the time to listen – to her candidates and her clients. By listening carefully and asking the right questions throughout the process, Melissa gains a thorough understanding of her clients’ needs and her candidates’ objectives and that is the mark of a true professional in the recruiting field. She also works hard – harder than anyone I’ve encountered in legal recruiting – and makes herself available 24/7 for follow-up, which is an essential part of the search process. Melissa did a terrific job for me and I’ve recommended and will continue to recommend her as the best professional I have encountered in the field.”
