The Agony and the Ecstasy of Law Office Staffing

By Dina M. Mastellone and Amanda Frankel

Hiring is a necessity to expand any business. You must utilize your business resources and time effectively to sift through an unknown universe: the prospective applicant pool. It is the business-side hiring practices and operations that can dramatically impact the ultimate outcome of adding a new member to your law firm’s team. If you want to ensure the best candidate is selected, hiring practices should be consistent and uniform.

Hiring talent is a huge investment of time, energy, and resources. Once hired, an employee will consume resources and organization expenses. With the right hire, magic can happen. With the wrong hire, calamity is just around the corner. While you can have outside search firms assist in gathering the applicants for your preliminary qualification review, there is simply no substitute for your vetting candidates and personally conducting interviews.
