"Having some experience with recruiters in the past, I have found the Mendelsohn Legal team to be in a different league. Rather than trying to force a quick match, the team takes the time to listen carefully to both the candidate (me) and their clients to find the right match. Their honest, candid, and open communication and their willingness to seek out unique opportunities to satisfy their clients' requirements while finding the right talent are a breath of fresh air. Definitively a great team of professionals. Thank you for all your dedication and support!"
