Legal Recruitment


As consultants, Schulman Professional Search (SPS) works with law firms looking to expand their practices. The team at SPS understands good partnerships, and works very hard to ensure the needs of our clients are being met. Our goal is the establishment of long-term, productive relationships. We recognize that every organization has its own unique culture, philosophy, and talent acquisition criteria. SPS knows that one size does not fit all in the legal market, and the only way to understand what a client needs is to understand who a client is.

SPS takes pride in our ability to accurately assess client need — and to identify the right candidate to fully meet your requirements. This means we carefully screen and evaluate candidates before they can be presented. Not every candidate who walks in our door meets our standards, or yours. Our recruiters understand the demands, pressures, and nuances of practicing law, and the importance of matching the right candidate with the right environment. When SPS sends a resume to a client, we are confident there is a fit.

Communication is key.  A successful recruiting process depends on comprehensive communications. We ensure our clients receive the information they need about candidates to make the best hiring decisions. We also keep candidates informed and updated about the hiring process.


Our process starts with an assessment of your requirements, hiring goals, and expectations. We develop an in-depth understanding of the types of qualified candidates who will meet your hiring needs and add value to your organization.  Then, the search process begins. After intense pre-screening and deliberation, you are presented with a targeted pool of candidates who precisely fit your needs and expectations.

For most clients, the timetable for a search is “the sooner the better.” And our process is designed to expedite your search while maintaining quality. Throughout the recruiting process, you are kept up-to-date on the status of the search, including candidate assessments of the initial and subsequent interviews.


For Clients:

  • A comprehensive candidate profile
  • Candidate reasons for making a move
  • Strengths and weaknesses of candidate
  • Candidate assessment of the client and the interview


  • Detailed information about the firm

Our goal every day at SPS is to create long-term partnerships with our clients.
