  • Gary is a phenomenal recruiter. From the beginning of my search process through to accepting an offer, Gary was responsive and provided an incredible amount of insight. He has great contacts at the major law firms and really guided me through the entire process. With Gary's help, I got an offer from the firm that was at the top of my list. Thanks Gary!!
