I couldn't recommend Mitch more for anyone looking to transition in the legal world. I had spoken with Mitch a few months earlier when I was thinking about getting out of an AM Law 100 firm that just wasn't the right fit for me. I wasn't in a rush and never really worked with recruiters in the legal realm before, so a few months later, through my own efforts, I had accepted a position with a small IP firm. Unfortunately, the firm lost a major client and had to rescind my offer a week later. In crisis mode, I reached out to Mitch again who made me his number one priority.

I had an interview less than a week later for a position that was much better suited to my background and the work-life balance I was seeking.
