  • Shelly is a phenomenal legal search consultant. She went above and beyond to work with me through the entire process of my lateral move, from applying and interviewing to negotiating and giving notice. Her professionalism and knowledge of the Chicago legal market was first rate. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new position.
