Back to Search

I had initially reached out to Mitch before the COVID-19 pandemic, which had put my job search on hold. I was immediately impressed with how plugged in he seemed to be in the industry. After the first wave began subsiding in the early summer, I decided to take a chance and restart my job search. Mitch was one of my first contacts. Mitch was very open and transparent throughout the process and he took the time to mentor me during all facets of the recruitment lifecycle. For example, he would insist on having conversations before every interview to guide my preparation. Mitch helped me make a move from a small firm to an Am Law 100-200 firm, and he was there every step of the way from application through offer letter. Even though he had already placed me, Mitch was thoughtful enough to check in and ask how I was adjusting. I certainly recommend Mitch to other attorneys in the job market.
