For Attorneys


Abshire Legal Search regularly assists partners and associates in making lateral moves.   We understand that the decision to even begin a search is an important one. We are happy to offer confidential advice on a number of topics that can help you to determine whether to begin a search, including current and historic demand in your practice area, the strength of your candidacy, and the best time to enter the market.

 

Once your search has begun, we identify potential opportunities and assist you in tailoring your resume to put your experience in the best light.   We handle all initial communications with the firm, including the submission of application materials, follow-up, scheduling of interviews.   As you progress through the process, we prepare you for your interviews and answer questions about what to say and how and when to say it.   Lastly, we advise on the competitiveness of offers and assist with offer negotiations.


We are also familiar with issues pertinent to partner moves - compensation systems, draw, capital requirements, withdrawal, non-cash compensation issues, marketing budgets, and retirement plans.


Please feel free to contact us in confidence to discuss a potential move.  Should we not have sufficient local market knowledge, we will be happy to refer you to a trusted recruiter in the relevant jurisdiction.

Leonard Fleisig, Partner at Wilcox & Savage, P.C.:

“I contacted Jordan when my lateral job search seemed stuck in first gear. Jordan immediately stepped up to the plate. He familiarized himself with my practice area and career goals. He worked diligently for me and not only got me in the door with various firms - but he got me in the door of firms that had need for attorneys with my skill sets. I have nothing but praise for Jordan's expertise, hard work and insights.”

 

Dedria Harper, Associate at Nexsen Pruet, LLC:

“Jordan was instrumental in helping me obtain my new position at Nexsen Pruet. He helped to prepare me for my interview, acted as a liaison between myself and the firm's contact and provided me with all the information that I needed to make an informed decision. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend him to any attorney looking to making a move to a new firm or company.” 

 

Breana Smith, Assistant Public Defender:

“Jordan did a wonderful job of finding a great job for me during a down market. And what's more, he continued his relationship with me even after the placement was complete to ensure I was happy there. I recommend Jordan--without hesitation or qualification-- to anyone interested in lateraling. Although I hope to not need Jordan again, it would be a pleasure to work with him again.” 

 

Ted Eidukas, Of Counsel at Foley & Lardner, LLP:

“Jordan helped me and my practice group transfer from a firm in which we were not happy to one that where we all enjoy practicing law. Jordan was helpful and great at what he does.”
