DFM & Associates is committed to delivering highly personalized attention to both the employer and the candidate. We meticulously match client need to candidate experience and personality to present only those individuals who can truly succeed.

Proactive not Reactive

More often than not, qualified candidates do not have the time to actively seek new job opportunities. At DFM & Associates, we build strong, long-term relationships with an exclusive pool of highly qualified candidates. Our recruiting experts proactively participate in industry networking functions to keep abreast of the job climate, job opportunities and new legal talent . We tightly align ourselves with the legal community to have direct access to candidates engaged in a job search and other top talent, before the opportunity ever exists.

Knowledgeable and Proficient

We make it our business to be knowledgeable about the types of people that make a legal organization great. Unlike many other legal placement services, DFM & Associates does not limit its searches to attorneys only. We have more than 30+ years of experience placing attorneys, paralegals, legal secretaries and staff support in law firms and company’s in-house legal departments. Our track record of long-term placements is evidence of our service-oriented approach and a strong knowledge of the legal organization.

Confidential and Customized

At DFM & Associates, we are interested in learning about the needs and future goals of our clients, employers and candidates. We work differently than other legal recruiters. Our placement specialists personally meet and interview every candidate and submit only those who can make a long-term difference in the organization. Although, we highly customize and personalize each search, we maintain the utmost confidentiality throughout the entire process. We understand that you place your trust in our hands and we are committed to conducting each search with insight, efficiency and professionalism.

We are committed to equal employment opportunity and refer qualified candidates without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, marital status, or veteran status.
