I cannot say enough lovely things about working with Erin. She remained accessible to me throughout the placement process, which was particularly stressful during the COVID pandemic. She did an amazing job respecting the changing needs of both her client and myself. I feel so lucky to be with the company, in the position I am now, but I know it wasn’t just luck – it was the work and insight of a great recruiter.

Through a mutual friend and business associate of mine, I met and worked with Erin while relocating to Louisiana. Because of her diligence, professionalism and overall understanding of the executive job market in this area, I was able to take the next step in my career without any glitches. I recommend Ms. Kessler without reservation and encourage companies looking for executives or executives looking for the right career to contact her.

– Division General Counsel, Fortune 500 company

It was a great pleasure working with Erin. She is professional, diligent, and experienced. I have worked with many legal recruiters over the years, and I can easily say that working with her was the most pleasant of all. She is honest and cooperative and works very hard on behalf of her clients. I very strongly recommend her expertise to anyone looking for legal recruiting services.

Stephanie and Southern Attorney Search & Staffing LLC are fantastic. We recently needed to add a paralegal with substantial complex litigation experience to our team, and Stephanie really took the time to listen to all of our (many!) requirements and ask the right questions. She hit it out of the park and quickly found the perfect candidate on the first try. I highly recommend Stephanie and her team for attorney and legal staff recruiting in Louisiana and Texas.

– Attorney, Texas & Louisiana Law Firm

Working with Erin has been a pleasure and very fruitful for us. She takes time to understand the need, asks the right questions, and will spend the time upfront with you to better be able to deliver what you were asking for. She is a fantastic recruiter and will get you the best candidates there are for your opening. 

– HR Director, legal services company

I would certainly recommend Stephanie Lazar to help you find the right person for your business. She is always just a phone call away and if she does not get to pick up at that very moment, she promptly calls you right back. I have a great relationship with Stephanie and can always depend on her.

– Office Manager, Multi-Office Louisiana Law Firm

So well connected and knowledgeable, Stephanie is a great resource for finding employment and making sense of career benefits. In helping me land my first legal job after graduation, she provided valuable advice, communicated with me often, and was always so kind. I would highly recommend anyone looking for work in the legal field to work with Stephanie.

– Legal Support Candidate, New Orleans

I decided I wanted to move back home just before the pandemic started. I reached out to Stephanie to see if there were any opportunities in my hometown but I wasn’t very hopeful. She quickly linked me with an amazing firm and I started my new job about 3 weeks after first contacting her. 5 months later, I love my new firm and love living back at home. Can’t recommend her enough!

Associate Attorney, Louisiana

Stephanie Lazar located me on LinkedIn, carefully researched my profile and then proceeded to reachout to me regarding a potential new career move. Not only did Stephanie provide me with assistance during the interview process, she then proceeded to act as a middle man for any questions or concerns I had, making it very convenient. Stephanie is a hard worker who always has her cell if you need her. My new job is a great fit!

– Contracts Administrator, Leading Offshore Oil Services Company

Although it didn’t lead to a job for me, I was recruited by these ladies and it was the best experience. Being a job searcher can be heart-breaking and many companies are needlessly cruel to candidates by not following up or communicating. I found that Stephanie and Erin took great pains to give a realistic job preview and worked hard to match the applicants to the opening. I’m so happy they have found success! Ethical recruiting and staffing – a rare find today!
