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.

“I can sum up Princeton Legal Search Group and David’s performance and client service in one word…superb! We were looking to fill a very important and newly created position. David provided a highly qualified and diverse group of candidates. He was deeply involved and connected to the process. He was a thoughtful adviser and truly helped us refine our requirements. David over delivered and exceeded our expectations. I would strongly recommend Princeton Legal Search Group and David Garber…”

I’m just about two months into my first in-house position after almost 10 years as a “biglaw” associate. I couldn’t have wished for a better fit. Fortunately, Mary Clare knew my new employer well enough to know a good match when she saw one, and she made sure that I had a chance to prove her right.
She was fantastic during every step of my transition. She answered my questions about the position and about the company—promptly and substantively. And, importantly, she did a fantastic job preparing me for the interviews.
I learned a couple of valuable lessons in this process—go with a recruiter that takes the time to know the company, and that the company trusts. Mary Clare obviously has earned my employer’s trust.

“In today’s legal talent market, I cannot think of a finer firm to partner with then Princeton Legal Search to identify top talent! From the very beginning of our executive level search, they were able to engage us with their knowledge and expertise. We knew we would be represented with any candidate they contacted with the highest level of professionalism. Our confidence in their abilities only grew with each interaction with the team. Specifically, Melissa Peters was phenomenal to work with and truly became a part of our team in the search. She was always a step ahead and most importantly, remained flexible and accessible with the same shared sense of urgency. It was a pleasure working with her!”
- Tamara Bowles, Esq., Vice President, Human Resources
“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.”

“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.”

“Melissa is a winner! I was looking for a new role that was not exactly related to my past experience, and she took the time to get to know me and the type of position that I desired. It is clear that she has the right instincts, and she did a wonderful job of keeping me informed throughout the search and interview process. I give Melissa my highest recommendation without reservation.”
- Rod Herrell, Associate Director, Senior Corporate Counsel
“…not only am I working in a ‘dream job,’ but I would recommend David to any general counsel who was looking for quality talent…If you are looking for high quality talent for high quality opportunities, Princeton Legal Search is your best bet.”
- Markus Hartmann, General Counsel
“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.”

“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.”
