Commitment to Diversity

We recognize that diversity is at the forefront of Hire Counsel’s past, present and future success.

Diversity in all categories is promoted and encouraged at every level within our organization.   Diversity in one’s background, ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation and nationality brings new ideas and strengths to our organization. As we move forward, attracting, maintaining and developing a diverse employee, client and vendor base is a priority of Hire Counsel. Hire Counsel is committed to recruiting and employing individuals without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

Some steps Hire Counsel utilizes in maintaining and increasing our diversity goals are as follows:

  • Annual diversity and inclusion training for all Hire Counsel staff employees
  • Attend business opportunity fairs in local communities
  • Recognize and reward M/WBE vendors
  • Attend career fairs promoting Hire Counsel diversity at both educational and local community job fairs.
100% Employee Owned

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.

For more information about the broader community of ESOPs and employee-owned companies, please visit the websites of the ESOP Association and the National Center for Employee Ownership.
