  • “Katherine’s professionalism, industry knowledge and engaging personality distinguish her as one of the very best recruiters with whom I have worked.  Her interview preparation session provided critical instruction on how various responses are interpreted and evaluated by law firms, and methods for overall presentation improvement.  In terms of client communication, Katherine maintained a strong and consistent level of contact with me throughout the placement process.  I also greatly enjoyed her sense of humor and positive attitude.  Katherine is a talented recruiter, and I plan to recommend her to other attorneys in the future.”
