Why Legal Ease?

Your Goals Are Ours

As an attorney candidate you are looking to explore only those opportunities which are particularly well suited to you.  Legal Ease respects and listens closely to each attorney candidate we work with.  Your goals are ours for you.

All Recruiters Are Not Created Equally

As you seek the ideal next position for yourself, take care in enlisting the assistance of a recruiter.   While an executive recruiter is commonly a key component in the success of an attorney candidate search, not all recruiters are created equally.   We encourage you to be certain yours is:


Specialized in Attorneys (avoid hybrids which include legal support staff or non-legal professions)

Geographically Focused on your Target Legal Market (e.g., Seattle or Washington State)

Operated by Attorneys (only an attorney can accurately identify the position you seek and represent you effectively)

Highly Respected by Attorney Employers in your Target Legal Market!

Legal Ease places attorneys only, in Washington State only.  Established in 1996 by attorney Lynda Jonas who remains our firm’s Placement Director, Legal Ease has earned its outstanding reputation among Washington’s best law firms and corporations.  We are “the” go to source for high caliber attorney talent in Washington State.

Legal Ease is deeply connected to and focused solely on your target legal community.  We consistently serve on boards and in leadership positions with numerous local legal organizations touching both the private and corporate practice sectors.*

Legal Ease is based in Kirkland, Washington, just outside Seattle.

Strictly Confidential

Your attorney search will be handled by Legal Ease in strict confidence.  Legal Ease will not present your resume to any Legal Ease client absent your express prior approval.

Legal Ease will respond directly and specifically to your inquiry.
