What People Are Saying

“Melissa did a great job finding the right person for our Corporate Counsel position. She understood our business needs and our company’s culture and helped us find the right match. Early in the process she identified one candidate as being the best fit, and that’s who we ended up hiring. It took much less time than I expected and Melissa made it simple and easy for me.”

- Joseph Dansky, Senior Vice President & General Counsel
Ascensus, Inc.

“I had the pleasure of working with Melissa this last Fall. She was referred to me by a (former) co-worker she successfully placed in a great opportunity. We then worked together for a few months to find a great fit for me. She took the time to learn my practice and didn’t push me towards a lesser fit. I have been in my new position for 6 months now and am grateful I was introduced to Melissa. I can’t recommend her enough.”

Melissa impressed me as a recruiter. After having inquired about a particular position posted through Princeton Legal Search Group, Melissa promptly reached out and we started to have a larger discussion about the prospect of making a move. She absorbed our conversations and kept an eye out for fitting opportunities. Her diligent manner led to a couple of options soon thereafter, one of which I was initially skeptical. Melissa diplomatica lly advised me through the process and kindly persuaded me to interview with both options because “[I] may be pleasantly surprised.” She set up interviews promptly.  And sure enough, I was indeed pleasantly surprised… and still am.  The process was swift, productive, careful, and effective. Melissa understands timing, strategy, discretion, and execution. I highly recommend her!
