About us
Our team

Sterling Legal Search is an Atlanta-based search firm that focuses exclusively on the recruitment of high-caliber legal talent.  Since our inception in 1989, we have established a successful record of placing legal professionals in a wide range of legal concerns -- from small law practices to Am Law 100 law firms to corporate legal departments of recognized Fortune 500 industry leaders.

Early on, we earned the reputation as a leader in the legal field by consistently finding ways to exceed our clients' expectations.  Because of our history of success, most of the business we currently enjoy is the direct result of referrals from existing clients and candidates.

In the mid 90s, we capitalized on these successful relationships and broadened our business focus to meet the legal market's growing demands.  We expanded our search capabilities from mid-level administrative, legal secretarial and paralegal positions to encompass search assignments reflecting compensation levels of mid- to upper-level management positions, as well as attorney positions.

Our principal recruiters, veterans with a combined recruiting experience of over 30 years, have owned and operated the firm since its inception.  We know that all of this expertise is only useful if we listen to your specific needs.  And, if our existing process doesn't work for you, we will find something that does.

We are a small-practice and we bring a unique local-market expertise to the worktable.  We understand the marketplace, we understand the legal niche, we understand the recruiting industry, and we know how to do our jobs.  The bottom line is, we know how to provide our clients with the most qualified candidates - whether they are on the job market or not.  Our success is built on it.
