  • I recently worked with Shelly during a lateral transfer. Throughout the process, Shelly was extremely responsive, provided helpful insight and great results. I can’t recommend Shelly enough if you are looking to work with a skilled professional recruiter who clearly has terrific connections with top law firms in the Chicago area.
