"I am providing this testimonial as Senior Partner of 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 represents very good value for money and this is why although we do from time to time use other recruitment agencies, however, 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."

"We’ve worked with Law Staff for some time and are very happy with the level of service we have received. They are always helpful, responsive and good at sourcing us with quality candidates; I would not hesitate to recommend them."
Partner, Taylor Rose TTKW
“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.”
Jonathan Tyler, Partner, Seth Lovis & Co.Solicitors
“We started working with Law Staff to help us find talented legal practitioners for our nationwide company expansion. Each candidate Law Staff presented was exactly matched to our job specification. Law Staff consistently impress us with the calibre of their talent bank. We will definitely continue to partner with Law Staff to ensure that we attract top talent for our ongoing expansion.”
Caroline Scott, Head of HR
"Having worked with Victoria and her colleagues for a number of years I have always found them to be professional and helpful. Victoria and her colleagues have repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to assist in whatever way they can to achieve the aims and goals of our recruitment strategy. The calibre of candidates is high and the skill sets match the specifications given. I have recommended Victoria and Law Staff as a whole to business associates and also candidates frequently over the years and will continue to do so."
"Thank you for your e-mail and you kind best wishes.
It has been a pleasure working with you over the past few months and I have found Law Staff to be one of the best agencies I have worked with.
You quickly understand the requirement and respond usually within an hour of the request.
You also took the time to travel to our offices and that certainly help to build our relationship.
You have even taken calls from me when not on duty but shopping at your local garden centre.
I have also been impressed with the strong team you have there.
I sincerely hope we can work together in the future and I would strongly recommend your services to any other business."Darlingtons, Middlesex
"Can I just say too, I really appreciate the way you send your emails with the candidate’s name and role in the email subject, and the information contained in your covering email. This is exactly what I’m always asking agents to do … it makes it so much easier to remain organised (particularly if there are a couple of jobs on the go)."
"Law Staff have helped us to fill a number of permanent roles, and we have always found them very professional and efficient. The consultants have dedicated a lot of time to getting to know the culture of the firm and matching suitable candidates. Law Staff are very thorough when providing us with full candidate profiles, briefing candidates on interviews and feeding back to them.
We have always received positive feedback from candidates placed through Law Staff and I have no hesitation in recommending them as a preferred supplier."
"Law Staff Ltd has been on our preferred supplier list for legal recruitment for the last two and a half years, since the inception of our dedicated HR Department. Over this period of time we have managed to secure several placements, including a number of positions filled at short notice and covering both admitted and non admitted roles. We have used both the permanent placement service and the locum placements (served by different teams but both providing the same high quality service)
On specific recruitment campaigns we have been allocated an account manager, Law Staff has provided us with exceptional support and we worked closely with Victoria and Charlotte. I would not hesitate to recommend the team in regard to their high technical proficiency, attention to detail and customer service."
"Initially we were reluctant to use Law Staff, as the Company’s policy has always been to avoid agency fees whenever possible. However, we contacted them following receipt of one of their monthly candidate updates. We not only ended up recruiting one of the candidates on this update but have since used Law Staff to recruit a further three lawyers. All of the recruitment consultants we have dealt with at Law Staff have been knowledgeable and approachable and have developed an excellent understanding of our business and our recruitment needs."
Fletcher Day, London
"Law Staff always responded quickly and efficiently to any queries we raised and provided a well thought out response."
"Very happy with the support given, the response to our enquiry was quick and the interpretation of our requirements was spot on, communications concise and accurate. The candidate provided was ultimately recruited so we are really happy. Thanks to Victoria for all her help."
"Over the past 3 months Victoria has helped us fill a permanent role and a locum role within our firm. It was a pleasure to deal with Victoria who understood our needs and put forward candidates suitable to the role within the time frame requested. Victoria provided a friendly and professional service and we would certainly look to use Victoria’s services again if we wish to recruit."
"Thank you so much for your excellent service and the professional assistance of your company throughout."
"I have recruited several duty solicitors to our team at Haskell & Co through Law Staff and, although my involvement with Law Staff has been more regular recently, we have had dealings with your office some nine years.
Throughout that time I have received efficient and personable assistance from the various members of your staff with whom I have dealt. The “house style” I have experienced at Law Staff is one of relaxed, friendly professionalism: your staff are approachable and, in my dealings with them, have provided honest and reliable assessments of the candidate available.
In summary, Law Staff have proved to be a consistently reliable means of recruiting appropriately qualified members of staff. I am pleased to commend your service."
"When we opened The Johnson Partnership Solicitors Scunthorpe office in November 2013 we had a real sense that it was going to be difficult to recruit new experienced Defence solicitors to expand our Scunthorpe team.
We hoped that our Scunthorpe office would be able to grow in the same way that The Johnson Partnership’s Chesterfield office had developed in its early days. Indeed, when we approached a number of recruitment agencies we were able to say that we were actively seeking experienced solicitors to join both our Scunthorpe and Chesterfield teams.
Imagine our amazement when Charlotte Waters from Law Staff came up with one solution to both problems. Charlotte was able to put us in touch with Kirsty Sargent. Kirsty had had years of experience with a large firm in the Home Counties but was now looking to move to the Chesterfield area to take up a new post.
As luck and coincidence would have it, Kirsty Sargent has the added advantage of having grown up in Scunthorpe. Kirsty knows a number of local solicitors in the Scunthorpe area and has been involved in voluntary work and work experience in the Criminal Justice Service in South Humberside.
Kirsty is happy to split her time between The Johnson Partnership’s Scunthorpe office where she is working as a Duty Defence Solicitor, and the Chesterfield office, where the work is ever increasing.
Working as a Defence Solicitor in Scunthorpe and in Chesterfield Kirsty has enabled us to develop both offices through her enthusiasm, skill, and appetite for hard work. We count ourselves very lucky to have found Kirsty and as ever are in the debt of Charlotte and Law Staff."
"Following a candidate update I received from Law Staff in September, I have used them to assist me with the successful recruitment of 3 new members of staffing only 2 months. Where in the past I have used traditional advertising, I have been unimpressed with the quality of the candidates this has generated. The same however can not be said about the candidates I have received from Law Staff which have always been of the highest order and have been provided quickly to help me fulfil my recruitment needs before they become a problem. The service and advice Law Staff provides has always been extremely professional. I have no hesitation in recommending them to other firms looking to recruit now or in the future."
"We have been very pleased with the services provided by Lawstaff. The knowledge of their consultants, the speed of their response and the quality of the candidates supplied has made the recruitment process so much easier. Needless to say we will be using them again!"
John Chapman & Co Solicitors, Surrey
"Law Staff have successfully placed a candidate with us for a PI Secretarial role and she is working out very successfully. We feel that the calibre of candidate presented to us for our vacancy was very high and their skill sets complimented the job specification very well. Our hope is to achieve the same success with our vacancies in the future."
Ross Aldridge LLP, Gloucestershire
"We are very happy with the service that Law Staff Legal Recruitment has provided for Scott Rees & Co Solicitors. The quality of candidates always meets our expectations and is of a high quality.

Scott Rees & Co, Lancashire
"Hayes & Storr are very pleased with the standard of service they receive from Law Staff Legal Recruitment. Hayes & Storr have been using Law Staff over the last 4 years or so and have found their staff to be pleasant and helpful. We appreciate the commitment the consultants have shown in matching our needs to suitable candidates. Thanks Law Staff and we look forward to continuing our association."
Hayes & Storr Solicitors, Norfolk
"Upon advising Law Staff of our requirements we were very quickly sent CVs for good quality candidates. The consultant we spoke to understood that we required somebody who had worked in Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Departments previously and who was an accurate and fast typist and had a good sense of humour. The candidate we offered the position to has now been with this firm since the beginning of the New Year and is an extremely efficient and reliable secretary. We would have no hesitation in using the services of Law Staff in the future."
Ameer Meredith, Cambridgeshire
"We have instructed Law Staff Legal Recruitment on a number of occasions to fill short term and permanent vacancies and have always found the quality of the staff provided to be excellent. When I speak to them regarding my needs, even if they are last minute, I am confident that they will source suitably skilled and experienced individuals within the timescales required."
The Co-operative Legal Services, Avon
"We recruited our new family lawyer through Law Staff and were very happy both with the quality of the candidate and also the services of the Company."
Rudlings Wakelam, Suffolk/Norfolk
"We have used the services of Law Staff Legal Recruitment for a number of years, for both permanent and temporary positions, and have always found the quality of the candidates outstanding. When I speak to Law Staff regarding my needs, even if they are at short notice, they have always provided suitably skilled and experienced individuals within the timescales needed. I have no hesitation in recommending them to any other law firm looking to work with a professional, knowledgeable and approachable agency."
