Despite the extreme efforts you expended in locating my dream job, I am most grateful for your assistance after my employment began.

"My gratitude is profound. Thank you Advocates for your extreme efforts and diligence in getting me the associate position I’ve always strived for.” SC, Esq.
“I think that the best way to refer to The Advocates is as a true “value-added” service provider in the legal placement business. I have worked with a number of competitors in the past twenty years. In virtually all of the cases, their involvement began and ended with putting me in contact with another law firm. With The Advocates, that was only the beginning of the services."
The Advocates truly lived up to their title, taking a very active role in the process, including having face-to-face meetings with the members of the prospective law firms, staging mock interviews with me, and negotiating my compensation package. The insights, assistance, and advice that I received from The Advocates was invaluable assistance in helping me to achieve my goals.” KM, Partner
“We are really happy with [our new associates]. They are both big hits at the office, both professionally and personally … I can’t imagine any better candidates, they are both perfect fits!” Managing Partner, Denver Boutique Firm
