What People Are Saying

“I was very pleased with Melissa’s knowledge and guidance in assisting me with my in-house job search and transition from private practice.  I appreciate her ongoing efforts in proactively identifying appropriate opportunities and providing timely updates, which ultimately led to my securing an in-house position consistent with my skill set and career goals.  I would highly recommend Melissa.”

- Michael Lestino, Assistant General Counsel
Innophos Holdings Inc.

“Melissa has that most rare of qualities in a recruiter – honesty. While looking for my current position I was using other recruiters for unrelated positions. Although lucky enough to get offers with other companies, it was Melissa’s honesty that swayed me to my current position. I knew what I was getting. I felt very little was going to be a shock when I walked through the door. With the other recruiters I felt too much self-interest and intense pressure. They didn’t listen to my concerns the way Melissa did and painted unrealistic utopias. Melissa listened to me, was honest about the position and advised me on my long-term goals. I ultimately chose my current position where I am very happy and satisfied mostly because of Melissa’s guidance. She knows her candidates and she knows her clients/the companies recruiting. I have recommended Melissa to many in my circle as I genuinely trust her. I couldn’t recommend her more.”

I had the good fortune to work with David Garber and Princeton Legal through my placement in my new opportunity.  David was extremely thorough in sharing pertinent details and background as to the position and in providing all the information that I needed throughout the interview process.  In the rare instance where he didn’t know the answers to my questions, he quickly found the answers and reported back.  David made the process run smoothly and made sure that I was continually updated as to the progression and timing of the search.  To put it simply, David Garber is a pleasure to work with and most deserving of his excellent reputation.
