  • “Chris Percival was integral to my job search as I relocated from California to Chicago. I indicated to Chris early on that I wanted to conduct a focused search based on a very discrete set of criteria. Chris did just that. Given her vast knowledge of the practice areas, personalitites and cultures of the law firms in Chicago, she was able to present me with a focused list of options that truly fit the criteria we discussed. Throughout the process, Chris was always very candid, genuine, hard-working, responsive and personable. I highly recommend working with Chris Percival.”
