  • Gary is an outstanding recruiter who took a sincere interest and active approach in helping to secure a job offer for me.  Gary and I worked together in identifying potential employers, developing a business plan, preparing for interviews, securing phone interviews and office visits, and eventually obtaining the offer.  Throughout this process, Gary was very responsive and provided much appreciated guidance based on his extensive experience in placing attorneys with top law firms.  Gary was truly a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend his services going forward.
