Los Angeles recruiting firms receiving…highest praise…Russo & Fondell. –California Law Business, 9/98
I knew that finding a new general counsel for a 100 year old service organization in an industry where having inside counsel is unusual would be a challenge for any recruiter. When I first met with Joan Fondell and Mary Jo Russo, though, I realized that they understood that Forest Lawn didn’t just need a good lawyer, we needed someone who would be a good fit with the values and culture of the organization. They were meticulous in their screening of candidates to make sure that our needs and priorities were met in all candidates they presented for consideration. Russo & Fondell proves that it’s not the size of the search firm that matters; it is the quality of the individual recruiters you are dealing with. I highly recommend Russo & Fondell. –John F.
