LegalBee’s recruiting philosophy isn’t to bombard a firm with random resumes and hoping someone sticks.

Rather, we are intentional in getting to know the firms and candidates we work with by asking thoughtful and insightful questions to get to the heart of who the firm and the candidate is so we’re better equipped to make a great match.





attorney coaching and outplacement

LegalBee provides attorneys with the tools they need to stand out in the job market. This is accomplished in numerous ways, including short and long-term coaching sessions, resume and cover letter feedback, LinkedIn strategies and interview prep.

For law firms that are letting an attorney go, LegalBee can work with your outplaced attorneys to effectively transition back into the job market.

"My law firm began working with Shelley Whitehead and her firm, LegalBee, in 2017 to fill an associate position.  Shelley has been a tremendous help to my firm.  She introduced us to a number of great candidates, she assisted with scheduling interviews, and she promptly called to follow-up after each interview.  Shelley even assisted us with negotiating terms with a candidate to whom we made an offer.  I truly enjoy working with Shelley and I highly recommend her to any law firm looking to quickly hire a high-quality attorney."

— Ron Austin, Grant Law, LLC

"LegalBee has helped me out because it provides an affordable option for court coverage with a competent attorney, who I feel will be prepared to handle any curveballs that might be thrown their way. It allows me to keep cases moving and customers satisfied, where I would otherwise have to ask for more time, or a continuance on a case. I would recommend LegalBee to other small practices who are trying to grow their business, because it prevents you from being forced to stop bringing in new business as a result of being over extended."

— Aasim Cunningham, Cunningham Lopez, LLP

"LegalBee connected us with an attorney consultant with an area of expertise important to our practice. LegalBee and our consultant have become trusted resources. Thank you LegalBee!"

“LegalBee attorneys have excellent writing skills, are extremely organized, and complete writing tasks on time.  A real bonus when an attorney has many deadlines to meet.”
