What a Few of Our Clients and Contractors Have Said:

Curtis, I wanted to thank you for being a great vendor and providing us with superior talent for our staffing needs.  We are hiring Alysia - she did a superior job on her 8-month assignment. We will go to your firm in the future for our legal staffing needs.  Thank you again,  Chris (general counsel)

Thank you again for the excellent contractor James. Our Chicago office and the firm abroad could not have been more pleased with his attention to detail and efficient work on the very important project. It worked out better than expected and I am pleased that my urging of going this route was so well received. We already miss James at the office - I hope some of us will keep in touch with him as he is a bright individual and a joy to be with, Kristina

Curtis, just a note to thank you for your personal efforts in allowing us (large Chicago law firm) to hire Ryan as an associate.  Your reasonable fee greatly helped this hire go through our administrative system.  Continued success with your firm.  Sincerely, Richard (partner)

Dear Mr. Linder, I wanted to say once more, thank you. Your genuine effort to help me in my particular situation and your confidence in me as a candidate is great appreciated. I thank you for all you have done. You are great at what you do. Sincerely, Jennifer

Curtis, it was a pleasure meeting with you yesterday. I appreciate the approach you have taken as a recruiter. It is quite clear you have much more invested in your firm beyond just filling positions. I can tell you are truly in the business of helping people. The layout of your candidate intake forms are easy to use and well crafted. Bravo, thanks again, Kathryn

Curtis! I will be graduating law school this May - magna cum laude. Getting my recent grades reminded me to thank you again for everything you've done for me. You have been instrumental in nearly every major decision I have made since 2005. Helping me nab that spot at [Chicago IP law firm] motivated me to apply to law school. Getting me hired at [law firm] after my first year of law school. And third, putting me in touch with the law professor you know who helped secure my acceptance here at law school. So, thank you once again for everything you've done, I appreciate it more than you can know, Jay

I really appreciate all your efforts in helping me with my job search. Working with LLS was very refreshing because of your attentiveness and all the opportunities that were forwarded to me. Some other staffing agencies do not show that level of attention and certainly aren't as proactive as your firm. Thanks again, Dorothy

Curtis is hands-down one of the most knowledgeable and personable legal recruiters I have ever worked with. He follows up with you while you are on assignment and works with you and the employer in any way possible. He made my contract assignment for his firm one of the most enjoyable I've ever had. And, he personally brings your paychecks to you because it gives him a chance to catch up with you - talk about personal service! Alexis

I really enjoyed working with you and your firm. Your responsiveness was great and although I received offers to work with other recruiters, I liked your firm because it was exactly what I was looking for - small and responsive. Sincerely, Ada


Curtis, you are by far the best and most responsive recruiter with whom I've worked. I really appreciate all the extra attention - Yasir

Curtis, I have interviewed at and worked for a few other legal staffing agencies in Chicago and Linder Legal Staffing is definitely the most friendly, professional and helpful one out there.  You and Nancy are just great.  Thanks again, Rachel

From a Few Direct-Hire Candidates:

Curtis, I was extended an employment offer yesterday, and I immediately accepted. I love this law firm, and am thankful that you thought to place me here. Thank you for your foresight and encouragement. I am very excited, Allyson

Curtis, I don't know how to thank you enough for connecting me with your client. I have accepted a generous offer for the paralegal position. I am very excited about the position and believe it will be challenging as well as rewarding and educational. Thanks again for everything, Cary

Curtis, I wanted to mention to you how great I think you and your company are. I was working with two other recruiters and they were no comparison to you. You care about your candidates and take that extra step to ensure that both the candidates and the law firms get the best opportunities. I cannot say the same about other recruiters who seem as if they are  in it just for the money and will place anyone anywhere. My belief is that your methods  helped me a lot. I appreciate all of your efforts,


In addition to helping me land this job Curtis, I wanted to thank you for all of your enthusiasm and diligence in my job search. Thanks for getting me that great offer - it's been really nice to have you in my corner cheering me on, Sheetal

Thank you for the wonderful opportunity you have given me on my first Chicago law firm assignment, Curtis. I could not have done it without you. The Linder Legal Staffing experience truly is the best! Thank you again for making assignment-to-hire conversion process so easy for me - and the law firm, Leanne
