100% Employee Owned Company

Commitment to Excellence. Precedent Setting.


Hire Counsel is proud to be a 100% employee owned company through the HCMC Legal, Inc. Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). In the temporary legal staffing industry, this is to the best of our knowledge, the first and only employee owned company. Both our own Hire Counsel staff as well as our temporary legal employees - temporary attorneys, temporary paralegals, temporary legal staff— can now participate in equity ownership through the ESOP, provided they meet the Plan requirements.

For our contractors, this is a precedent setting added benefit to our already comprehensive benefits package, as well as tangible motivation to provide only the best service to our clients and continued loyalty to Hire Counsel.

The ESOP strengthens our ability to continue providing best in class attorney staffing services and review management.  It ensures our commitment to our core values of teamwork, integrity and professionalism—values we have lived by since our founding in 1993.

While employee ownership is an exciting new opportunity for us, we will maintain our management personnel, and the operating systems and recruitment and assessment practices that have earned us our solid reputation. Lynn Mestel, President, Willa Fawer, COO and our key managers and employees are committed to lead and run the company. The ESOP further affirms our commitment to be the best in the industry. Employee ownership not only improves our ability to fulfill that commitment, but also ensures a sustainable strategy to maintain it for many years to come.
