What Do Our Legal Professionals Say About Us?

“Thank you, Hire Counsel, for staffing me on two recent projects with a very well-known client. I want to give a very special thanks to the Hire Counsel recruiters and the entire team involved. Hire Counsel was a delight to work for! Also, my fellow colleagues and neighbors that Hire Counsel staffed on both projects were amazing to work alongside with. Everyone was friendly, helpful, professional, and true team players.  I already miss the group! Also, the client we worked with and their Project Managers and Team Leads that headed our projects had to be some of the best I have worked with in all of my eight or so years in eDiscovery. They truly are a terrific client and their associates are top-notch. I’m looking forward to working on future assignments with Hire Counsel again.”  — Matthew Jones, JD |  Hire Counsel eDiscovery Attorney
