I highly recommend Shari Davidson if you are an attorney looking for a new position. Shari is the best recruiter that I have had the opportunity to work with. She is committed to the process, very professional and understands the needs of the legal industry and what’s important when making a placement with attorneys.

Shari is a terrific professional development coach and sounding board for mid-career attorneys. She makes the effort to get to know each client and to build relationships and gives freely of the most previous commodity — her time — for each and every client: a rarity in her field. She is high energy and always ready to roll up her sleeves and get to work.
