In purposeful recruiting, merely listening is not enough. That’s why at Alliance Legal Staffing we strive to capture more than just auditory perception by giving you our complete and full attention during each and every interaction. We seek to understand and empathize by carefully digesting each word and reflecting on conversations long after they have taken place.

Our Mission
To truly know you and to fully understand your needs.

Modeling the Chinese character for “To Listen” is our practice at Alliance Legal Staffing.

To hear – is to listen with more than our ears. We aim to learn about you, your history, your present state, and your future goals. We desire to authentically know you so that we can represent you to the best of our ability.

To Think – is to put your needs above ours by sharing our knowledge and vast experience for your benefit. We aim to act as mentors by educating, coaching and representing you through each stage of the hiring process. Our sole mission is to serve you well.

To be present – is to be deeply invested in our
conversations, conscientiously putting our own thoughts, feelings and biases aside. Neutral and non-judgmental, we create a safe space for you to share your thoughts, opinions and emotions with the assurance that our conversations will be held in the strictest of confidence.

To see – is to be aware of non-verbal communication signs that sometimes mean even more than spoken words. We like to meet in person so that we can know you more intimately. We are forthcoming and aim to earn your trust immediately, and want you to feel that you have had an opportunity to get to know us authentically too.

To focus – is to give you our undivided attention, fully engaged through each step of the process. We are available to visit after hours and on weekends. Alliance Legal will never submit multiple candidates for one position. We hone in on who we truly believe is best suited for each role and we stand behind our candidate 100+%. In doing so, we are serving the best interests of both our client and our candidate.

To feel – is to extend empathy and grace to all, in all situations. This is the core of Alliance Legal Staffing – the genuine desire to be of service and to help others.

We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
