Our Story

In 1996, ESP Legal recognized that law firms had an urgent need for highly qualified, skilled technology professionals to support the firm’s growth in the computer boom of the 90s. In the years since we’ve become the top legal technology recruiting firm by specializing in connecting law firms nationwide with the best legal technology talent. As the industry evolved, so did we—adding litigation support and eDiscovery staffing solutions to continue to meet all of our clients’ needs.

What’s never changed is the emphasis we place on integrity and our commitment to our clients, candidates, and employees.

Our Values

Do the Right Thing

As a team, we commit to direct, open, and honest communication with our clients, candidates, and each other. We focus on solutions, listen with the intent to understand, and act with integrity in all situations.

Support Each Other

We treat everyone we work with as equals, checking our egos and respecting individual differences. We love to celebrate the achievements of others and give back to our communities.

Be the Best

We strive for excellence in all we do. We aim to always set and ask for expectations and follow through on what we say we’re going to do. We also plan for, anticipate, and embrace change and challenges.

Be Happy

We aim to create a fun experience for our clients, candidates, and team. It starts with being passionate about what we do, laughing—including at ourselves—often, and building genuine relationships with our coworkers, clients, and candidates.
