WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING

"I recommend Major, Lindsey & Africa enthusiastically and unreservedly. I worked with my recruiter in two different time periods looking at a variety of law firm and in-house positions. She provided incisive spot-on analysis of what was most appropriate for me in terms of personality and career options. She always had my best interests at heart."

Joshua Stein Chief Compliance Officer & VP of Litigation, Regulatory Affairs, & Public Policy - Zenefits

"I have worked with a lot of recruiters in my nine years as a recruiting professional and I think that MLA is one of the best firms to deal with because of the recruiters they hire! The recruiters whom I work with at MLA are extremely knowledgeable about the markets they are in. They take the extra time to get to know the firms they are dealing with, which means they present the right candidates. MLA's recruiters are efficient and they do everything they can to help move the process along by being responsive and available."
