Why Legal Ease?

Successful law firms and corporations know they will not attract the attorney talent they seek without retaining a recruiter.  However, not all legal recruiting firms are created equally.

Legal Ease, L.L.C. focuses exclusively on attorney recruiting.  We serve only law firms and corporations located within Washington State.

Our mission is results based which holds us to a higher standard – “The perfect fit, every time.”  Your take away is twofold: the single best attorney hire for your organization’s unique need and the ability to confidently delegate this challenging task to us.



Legal Ease was founded by Washington attorney Lynda Jonas in 1996 to fill an unserved need in our local legal community for attorney focused recruiting services.  Ms. Jonas remains our firm’s Placement Director leading our dedicated staff of legal professionals to consistently achieve our mission.


It is imperative your recruiter be connected to and respected by your target talent.

Legal Ease is deeply and broadly connected to Washington’s attorney community.  We consistently serve on boards and in leadership positions with numerous local legal organizations touching both the private and corporate practice sectors*.  Additionally, we also conduct daily, multilayered outreach to the full spectrum of attorney prospects located in or relocating to our region.  We are well known and respected throughout your target talent market.


Attorneys Only/Washington State Only:  Quality attorney candidates are not interested in working with broad spectrum legal staffing companies.  They demand the specialized expertise of an attorney focused recruiting firm.  Moreover, they seek out “the” recruiting firm based in and best connected to their target market – i.e. Washington State attorney employers.

Legal Ease, L.L.C. focuses exclusively on attorney recruiting.  We serve only Washington State legal employers.

Attorney Staffed:  Legal Ease is staffed by Washington attorneys.  Our collective legal background includes both law firm and corporate practice experience.  Your organization’s attorney recruiting firm should be attorney owned and operated.

Expert Recruiters:  Legal Ease employs the most effective and selective attorney recruiting and screening methodologies available.  Ours is a multilayered approach including traditional, cutting edge, and internally crafted processes.  Our methods ensure (a) we touch all of your prospective candidates, and (b) we assess each prospect accurately for his/her true, long term fit with your organization.  What appears to be the right fit on paper often is not.

Legal Ease understands both corporate and private practice legal environments, including their structure, management and business realities.  Legal Ease appreciates how significantly a successful (or unsuccessful) attorney hire affects your organization.


Legal Ease is locally owned and operated, focused exclusively on law firm and corporate clients in the Washington State market.  Our geographic focus, as noted above, is a crucial element of both our superior candidate draw and the specific expertise we are able to provide our clients.

Our Fees, Etc.:

Legal Ease is typically engaged by our clients on an exclusive basis.  Our fees are earned upon attorney hire.

Legal Ease offers specially structured fee arrangements, including those for “growth” clients which include reduced fees for multiple attorney or practice group hires.

Legal Ease believes our expertise in all matters related to attorney hiring should be shared freely with our local legal employers.  Please contact our Placement Director, Lynda Jonas, Esq., at ljonas@legalease.com to schedule a telephone consultation to discuss your issues of interest.
