Leading Law Firm
“Randi and her team did a great job listening to what I was looking for in pairing me with an employer who needed someone with my skills and abilities. I like that Randi and her team submitted my resume to positions that I was not only qualified for but that I found challenging and met my work culture goals. I wanted to get away from a life of trying to meet billable target hours. I was looking for work life balance in a challenging in-house role. Life After Law exceeded my expectations in pairing me with an organization with a great work culture that was a perfect fit for my unique background! Randi and her team really took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for. Now that I’m in my new role I know Life After Law also took the time to find out what my new employer was looking for because my skills are a perfect fit for my current role. Life After Law is definitely the best recruitment team I’ve ever worked with!”
“Working with Randi at Life After Law was a very positive and helpful experience. She asked thoughtful questions to help get to know me, my career aspirations, and my skill levels, but more than that she was honest with me as to where I may need to shore up or further explain my experiences to show that I was the right person for the job I applied for. Because of this, I felt like when she encouraged me and told me I would be a good fit that she was being honest and not just trying to fill a role without regard to what would be best for me or the client. I was able to ask questions and get speedy responses, every time. Randi was a human being in the midst of a difficult job search and I am very grateful to her for that”.
“It was a pleasure working with Life After Law, and we would highly recommend their legal recruitment services. Pearl is a consummate professional; she understood our needs, worked diligently to meet our timeline, and was an excellent liaison between us and the candidates. We appreciated Pearl’s attention to detail, responsiveness, and professionalism throughout the entire process and would happily work with her and the rest of the Life After Law team again”.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Pearl and Life After Law on various legal roles since 2017. Pearl is extremely knowledgeable and professional and has taken the time to understand not only the technical requirements of each role but has also taken the time to learn about and understand our corporate culture and the expectations. Over the years, Pearl has been successful at referring the right candidates for each role and has been successful at filling every role we have engaged her for. Even though we are not a high volume client, she has always been very supportive and responsive, has always had a calm demeanor but understood our sense of urgency and has always been available for whenever required. I have had only positive and successful interactions and experiences from Pearl and Life After Law”.

Randi´s personal approach, taking the time to understand both our business and work culture has resulted in winning relationship that we continue to rely on.

“My organization recently worked with Randi Bean, the President at Life After Law, to recruit a corporate Legal Counsel which has historically been a difficult position for us to fill. She took the time to understand our requirements, and the context in which or our organization works. Her guidance and deliverables were always thorough and timely. A major value-add for us was the candidate description that was provided to us along with the resume and cover letter for each potential candidate. These candidate descriptions gave us additional information about the candidates’ motivations and backgrounds in line with our context, which led us to consider individuals who may have been overlooked based on their CV alone. I look forward to working with our new Legal Counsel, and thank Randi and the Life After Law team for a job well done”.
