 Candidate 057486

"The performance was excellent. It’s a professional company full with professional staff. I had dealings with Chris Ewles but when he was off, Ryan called to follow up how the interview went which to me was very kind of them. I have recommended 3 of my friends and I know they will get in charge with Chris on Monday"


 Jonathan Tyler, Seth Lovis & Co 

"We have worked with Chris Ewles and the Law Staff team for several years and they have always provided an excellent service which has enabled our firm to grow with the right people. They are extremely responsive, knowledgeable of the market and understanding of our needs and objectives. They will promptly provide relevant candidates making our recruitment process efficient and quick. Their fees are competitive and whenever we need to recruit, whether a paralegal or head of department, I will simply call Chris comfortable in the knowledge he will get straight onto the job and within hours I will have CVs of quality candidates in my inbox."


A J Summers, Wellers Law Group LLP

"By way of background the Firm is a multi-site operation having seven offices in total with in excess of ninety staff. As a firm we have been growing over the last eight years and therefore have had a constant need to recruit high calibre staff which includes Solicitors, other Fee Earners and also Support Staff.We have been working with Law Staff Legal Recruitment for over six years and I have known Chris Ewles personally for the same period. Law Staff has been genuinely concerned to develop a relationship with this Firm which is evidenced by Chris and other members of staff coming out to visit us in our offices on several occasions. Law Staff have provided a number of high quality candidates for us to meet and we have been successful in securing a number of those candidates onto our full time staff. Law Staff are responsive to the need to move quickly with candidate introductions setting up initial interviews and then following through with second interviews and being involved in the negotiation process where offers are made to candidates. I do consider that Law Staff represent very good value for money and this is why although we do from time to time use other recruitment agencies Law Staff are certainly our preferred choice. I have found them to be not only very responsive but also courteous, methodical with the supporting paperwork and straightforward and transparent in their approach. 


 Philip Cartin, Ewings & Co Solicitors

"Chris and the Law Staff team helped us recruit a Solicitor within our childcare/family team. Our recruit has proved to be an excellent candidate and the process was smooth and efficient throughout. Communication in the process is always key, which was excellent."

"I just thought I would drop you a line to say thank you ever so much for all of your help with securing the move to my new employers. It was really reassuring to have someone on my side who was able to offer expert advice and point me in the right career direction. Although I hope to be at my new employers for a very long time, if I should ever need to look another position, I will certainly use your firm's services again."

Candidate 001883

Candidate 023693

"Chris Ewles of Law Staff was extremely proactive when I was looking to secure a permanent role. He always made sure he put me forward for suitable roles when considering my skills and personality.

I was very grateful when Chris assisted me in securing a role as Head of Conveyancing last year and he negotiated a brilliant package for me. I have since moved to a role nearer home but would highly recommend Chris if you should be considering a career move in the near future."


Candidate 046904

"I am really very impressed with Law Staff, and in particular Chris Ewles, for organising a locum assignment for me with a leading London firm so quickly after my contacting them – a very BIG thank you for an excellent assignment!"


Candidate 042667

"I recently (i.e August of 2013) approached the company to find alternative employment. My first contact point was with Chris and he assisted me in the electronic aspects of my applications, no mean feet since my I.T skills are somewhat lacking, and throughout the course of this part of the procedures he was patient and courtesy personified.

With Chris’s assistance I have found my current position. I am happy here and feel that the matching process obviously conducted by Chris has been of benefit both to my new employers and speaking selfishly myself.

Throughout the whole procedure Chris and others with whom I have dealt with at Lawstaff have been helpful – forgive the saying but I do feel that he is a young man who is willing to go proverbial “extra mile”. 

I have no hesitation in recommending both Chris and Lawstaff to other legal professionals.

In conclusion I cannot recommend him and the company highly enough."
