Kati Weaver - Legal Recruiting Houston


Kati Weaver is a Managing Director in our Texas office. She specializes in targeted law firm and in-house placements of associates. Kati is known for her ability to develop and sustain strong candidate and client relationships, which allows her to identify the most appropriate opportunities to match individual candidate needs. Her background as a former law firm associate and former managing director in the New York associate recruiting market makes her particularly well suited to facilitating lateral movements to and from the major markets.

Kati is originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She enjoys cheering for her favorite sports teams (including LSU) and spending time with her husband and two sons.

Prior to joining Major, Lindsey & Africa, Kati was a litigation associate for four years with the New Orleans office of Fowler Rodriguez, a 60-attorney firm with U.S. and international offices. She was a managing director with our New York office before moving back south with her family to focus on Texas and Louisiana recruiting.

Kati has been quoted in industry articles by publications such as Law 360 and authored Keeping the Keepers: Retaining the Best Associates—Control the Controllable, which was published by the NALP Foundation as part of a national study of associate hiring and retention from 2006–2011.

“Kati is fantastic in the way that every other recruiter is not. Do not miss an opportunity to work with her. I honestly cannot recommend Kati highly enough. I worked with recruiters for some time and found that most would simply take my resume, email it around, and see what would happen. Kati was a completely different: we sat down and discuss exactly what I was seeking, and then Kati told me about the many opportunities she had lined up that fit my goals. So that already set Kati apart, but before my first interview, we sat down for about 90 minutes to practice the interview from every angle we could imagine. Her advice worked like a charm, and I received an offer off my first interview, only two or three weeks after we started working together. Again, I could not be happier with my experience working with Kati. I recommend her to any associates I know looking to make a move. I make it my personal goal to send her as many candidates as possible to repay her in some way for the dramatic improvement in my life since we met.” —Terry McMahon, Vice President, Goldman Sachs

Kati has facilitated numerous placements ranging from junior associates to partner level attorneys in both New York and Texas. She has also successfully partnered with several AmLaw 100 law firms on targeted, exclusive associate-level searches.
