To do so, we have assembled an unparalleled leadership team of our own, comprised of professionals with real-world expertise in law and staffing and recruiting.

Through our relationships with minority bar associations, sponsorships of diversity-focused events, and hands-on work with different groups and individuals, our outreach efforts help us expand our network of the most qualified legal candidates.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Special Counsel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture. Management bends over backwards to help us succeed. Tons of incentives offered to help employees stay motivated and engaged. I have never been so happy to go to work and feel more invested than ever in the company I work for.

    Cons

    If you want to be miserable at work and aren't a happy person-- DON'T APPLY. We have fun at work!

    Advice to Management

    We appreciate everything you do for us- Thank you!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Special Counsel.

    Interview

    The process was very succinct and sweet. We talked about the job for about 1 hour. The office was easy to find and the interviewer was nice. She gave a good idea as to what the job entailed and realistic expectations.
