What our candidates have said:

"Hi Curtis, Thank you for the kind words! I am really enjoying working at (large Chicago law firm) and I truly appreciate all the work you, Nancy and Kim have done to get me here. I have learned a great deal about the law firm marketing industry as well as the practice of law. I am really looking forward to becoming more involved with projects as my time here progresses. Your new office looks great. I love old buildings, especially ones that keep to the original architecture and look. Looking forward to hearing from you."

~ Jessica

"Curtis, I wish to express my sincere gratitude for the enormous amount of effort and dedication that you have put forth in working with me. Having you assist me in progressing my career as a legal professional has been highly valuable and greatly appreciated. In fact, it was you who really started my career. I recall that less than five minutes passed from the time I wrote to you regarding my situation and commencement of job searching activities to receiving a response from you. The cold world of job searching made me feel as though I was just a number, but the personal attention provided by Linder Legal Staffing was so meaningful. I wanted you to know, last Friday, I accepted a paralegal position at [Linder client] and am excited and thankful for the opportunity."

~ Megan

"I greatly enjoyed working with Curtis and recommend his services for those looking for a career in the legal industry. He is personable, dedicated, caring, and passionate about what he does. I appreciate the time and energy he put forth in my career"

~ Elizabeth

"Curtis: I am sure Michael [hiring partner] already filled you in, but I am starting on Tuesday at his law firm.  I am so grateful for this opportunity you arranged.  I just wanted to take one more opportunity to thank you for this excellent placement.  I'm so glad I walked into your office that day and not a week later.  I am most grateful for your efforts.  I enjoyed our interaction and your kind words over the phone in setting up my interview.  I will not hesitate to recommend you if I hear that any of my peers from law school are looking for placement. All the best, Ted"

"Dear Curtis, Thank you so much for all your help with my job search! You were an excellent resource in navigating the Chicago job market. You were so proactive and excellent with following up, keeping me informed of your progress every step of the way.

Your passion for your work shows, and I will absolutely recommend you to anyone I meet searching for a job in the legal field.

~ Frank

"Hi Curtis, as you already know, the job I was referring to was a part-time position at (Linder Client).

I am so grateful for your help, and Kim's!"

"Curtis, I wanted to let you know I accepted the Asbestos Litigation Docket Clerk position at (top Chicago law firm). My Linder contract assignment here was instrumental in landing this job offer. Thank you again so much for everything you and Linder Legal Staffing has done for me over these past 9 months. I greatly appreciate it, and I won't be able to recommend Linder highly enough. I'll be in touch soon with more details. Also, when I email my career advising (law school) office to let them know about my new position, I'll be putting a strong recommendation in for LLS. From the student/new law graduate end, the legal job market seemed impenetrable and overwhelming. The work you do has changed that. I can't thank you enough."
