"After six years of a grueling commute from San Francisco to the Silicon Valley of my law firm, I was fortunate to be referred to Carl Reece at RLS about a position for which his search firm was the short-term exclusive law firm recruiter. After my initial conference call with Carl, he promptly recommended that I also consider exploring a short-list of three "A-List" full service law firms. Within a two week period, I was actively interviewing with a major global law firm. Throughout my three rounds of interviews with my future law firm employer, Carl provided detailed insight and in-depth feedback provided to him from the hiring partner. RLS was also instrumental in negotiating my signing bonus. Within a 30 day period, I received an offer from the law firm that I hoped would want to hire me. Suffice it to say, I accepted the offer immediately. Without a doubt, I would highly refer RLS to my attorney colleagues in the future."

"I was in the midst of making a career change when I was fortunate enough to be contacted by RLS about a position for which RLS was the exclusive recruiter. The team at RLS immediately impressed me with their understanding of my current job and how I could best leverage my skills and experience in my search. Unlike what I had experienced with many of their competitors, they consistently proved to me that they were interested in assisting me in getting a "better" job - not just "another" job. They also provided valuable and candid advice about negotiating the offer from my new firm and, more importantly, successfully obtained important changes in the terms of my offer that I did not fully expect to receive. I would without hesitation recommend Carl and hope to have the opportunity to work with them in recruiting efforts at my new firm."

He expertly assessed my skills and level of experience and presented to me job opportunities that would truly enhance my career. Throughout, Carl was diligent and gave me continual updates on new developments. I was very impressed with Carl’s ability to be responsive, yet discreet.

I am very happy to report that our efforts culminated with an offer from a very prestigious law firm! I couldn’t be more thrilled and would recommend Carl’s services to anyone without reservation."
