WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
I can’t say enough about the MFJ team. Making the decision to leave a job for another is a huge decision and is never easy, but this team was a great guide in helping me through the decision-making process. They found firms that fit my personality and were an excellent sounding board while I was going through interviews. I ended up getting a great job and I have MFJ to thank for that.
MFJ has an outstanding team that works with a wide network of firms of various sizes and specialties. My goal was to make the transition from Washington, D.C. to Dallas or another legal market closer to home and they helped me find the perfect position in Dallas. Overall, they provided me with seven options for positions across the nation that were closely tailored to my experience. MFJ understood the role and geographic area I was looking for, recognized my key strengths, and advocated for me to obtain the right position. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend MFJ for anyone looking for a change or passively interested in exploring new possibilities.
MFJ is always our first choice. I have to say, without a doubt, that MFJ is more committed to understanding our hiring priorities and how they relate to our business than any other search firm. This makes them exceptional at promoting our story and sending us nothing but the best candidates.
