Candidate Testimonials

I worked with Nancy Carey on my most recent career move. Nancy approached me about an opportunity and was great to work with throughout the hiring process – from submitting my resume to working through the offer details. Nancy always candidly answered my questions and provided me with as much insight as possible. She is friendly and approachable, so I felt entirely comfortable asking her questions which, in the past, I was uncomfortable asking recruiters. As a big law alum, she is very knowledgeable about the legal industry and what firms prize in candidates. She is a tremendous ally to have in your corner, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her. She is wonderful personally and professionally!
