What People Are Saying

“My experience with David Garber and Princeton Legal Search Group has been first-class every step of the way.  I wasn’t actively looking for a new opportunity when David and I first connected, but as we got more acquainted he told me about a role for which he believed I might be a good match.  What followed was an extraordinarily personalized, responsive, and honest process that resulted in me making a well-informed decision to accept an exciting offer.  I’m very grateful to David and his company and strongly recommend them to employers and candidates alike.”

“Without a doubt, my experience with Princeton Legal has been nothing short of outstanding!  From start to finish, the team was professional, insightful, and impactful.  I can confidently say that my transition from Big Law to a genuinely unique and well-fitting opportunity was only made possible by the diligent work of David Garber and Mike Capetola.  Throughout the process, they provided candid assessments of my candidacy and routinely discussed interview preparation and application strategy.  I recommend Princeton Legal to anyone seeking quality career counsel and especially to those who are seeking opportunities that are specifically tailored to their interests and potential.”

“Having managed many searches as General Counsel and COO of a growing FinTech firm, and now having launched my own firm, I hold Mary Clare and David in the highest regard among recruiters that I have worked with.  Their deep understanding of talent, as well as the needs of in-house teams handling highly sophisticated mandates, shines through at every juncture.  I have greatly enjoyed their professionalism and market savvy, am pleased to have worked with them, and look forward to building on that experience in the future.  I certainly recommend them to anyone seeking premier recruiting services.”
