  • Gary was a pleasure to work with during my legal employment search process. He only sought to submit me for openings that corresponded to my experience, and, thereafter, he advocated on my behalf from the initial submission through the offer. His response time was lightning fast when I had questions or concerns. I highly recommend Gary!
