  • I highly recommend Anna. Anna recently helped me with my move from a small firm to a nationally recognized practice of a large firm. Anna was very professional and guided me throughout the whole process, anticipating any and all questions and concerns I had. She was very proactive in looking for opportunities and thought outside the box to find the perfect fit for my interests. Anna also made sure I had all of the resources in preparing for the interviews and followed up promptly afterwards. Whatever your desired move, Anna will be able to help!
