McCormack Schreiber Legal Solutions is Your Best Source for Temporary Legal Staffing

As a legal staffing agency, we understand that finding an attorney or paralegal on a contract basis can be extremely difficult for our clients, and these types of positions typically need to be filled very quickly.  We are able to present qualified candidates quickly and seamlessly for contract and temporary legal positions.

McCormack Schreiber brings the highest level of service and cost efficiency to traditional contract/temporary assignments, and provides innovative ideas for using contract attorneys, including:

  • Staffing substantive assignments with highly skilled contract candidates

  • Providing trained temporary attorneys for short- or long-term leaves of absence (e.g., illness or maternity leaves)

  • Extending "temporary to permanent" arrangements where appropriate, allowing clients and candidates the opportunity to ensure that there is a good fit before incurring the cost of permanent hire, both in time and financial resources

  • “We reached out to McCormack Schreiber to help us with our search for a General Counsel, but we were not sure about the timing of hiring someone for that role. They listened to our concerns and suggested that we try working with some very talented attorneys on a contract basis until we had a clearer picture of our personnel timing. We were amazed by the roster of talent they had available for a contract position -the backgrounds were truly impressive. We were so impressed with the work for the attorney they introduced to us for a contract role that we eventually made him our General Counsel. I highly recommend McCormack Schreiber for any contract, permanent, or, as in our case, contract to permanent legal staffing needs.”
