Law Firms and Corporate Legal Departments Rely on D3 Search

In today’s world, staffing presents many unique challenges. Law firms and corporate legal departments need to attract top talent, and this is no longer simply a matter of offering an attractive compensation and benefits package. Attorneys, paralegals, administrators and other professionals demand more flexibility, and they are increasingly expecting prospective employers to meet their specific wants and needs. We assist our clients by crafting unique solutions which meet most of the talent’s needs, while still maintaining the expectations and standards of the firm or department.  

Further, the means by which law firms and corporate legal departments find quality candidates are changing as well. Beyond the traditional on-campus interview (OCI) process or online advertisement, the best candidates are often looking for new opportunities passively. We maintain relationships with these passive candidates for many years, and we are likely to catch one of them at the right time for your firm.


Experienced Legal Recruiting

For Permanent and
Temporary Staffing Needs

We help law firms and corporate legal departments of all sizes overcome these challenges. With more than 50 years of combined industry experience, our Principals know what it takes to find, recruit and hire top talent. They have forged many long-term relationships in the local Southern California market, and they are intimately familiar with the ways in which the legal talent market has changed in recent years. Whether you are looking to make a direct hire or need to supplement your firm’s or department’s staff on a temporary basis, we can use our experience to help you find the “perfect” candidate - or take a strategic and cost-effective approach to meeting your temporary needs.

One-on-One Consultation To Understand and Define Staffing Needs

At the outset, we will schedule time to meet with you one-on-one to understand and define your staffing needs. We will listen to your thoughts, provide advice based on our industry expertise and propose a strategy for moving forward.

Recruitment Services for Direct Hire and Temp-to-Hire Placements

We are committed to conducting tailored direct hire and temp-to-hire placement searches whose results exceed our clients’ expectations. We provide our clients with diverse, highly-qualified and highly-motivated candidates at a competitive market rate.

Recruitment Services for Contract Staffing Solutions

With our consistent recruiting efforts, we are able to provide our clients with immediate access to temporary personnel when they need contract staffing solutions. This includes attorneys, paralegals, administrators, human resource professionals and other legal support personnel who are available on a short-term or long-term basis.

Project-Based Staffing Support for eDiscovery and Other Matters

If you need to staff up for a pending litigation matter or you have a transactional project that requires additional support, we can match you with highly-qualified attorneys, paralegals and other legal professionals who have an appropriate level of experience. If your firm’s or department’s physical space is limited, we can usually host these individuals at our offices for the duration of your project.

Ongoing Advice and Recruitment Services

We work with many law firms and corporate legal departments on an ongoing basis, and we take pride in forging lasting relationships that allow us to serve in an advisory capacity to our clients. Our Principals include a former Labor & Employment Attorney, a former law firm Human Resources Manager, and an extremely well-connected and well-versed J.D. who has earned multiple awards at national recruitment agencies. As our client, our goal is to make sure you have access to the information you need and the candidates you want - on your timeline.

Creating an Experience for

Job Seekers Unlike
Any Other

At D3 Search, we realize that meeting the demands of our corporate clients is only half of our responsibilities, and only half of our success. We approach our relationships with candidates and job seekers in a similar manner, respecting their confidentiality, listening to their wants and needs, and fully preparing them for their interviews. We consistently hear from our former candidates that D3’s comprehensive interview preparation and online resource library made all the difference in their finding employment success and happiness.

A High-Touch Approach

From Day One

We understand that a career change can be both daunting and one of the most important decisions that you ever make. As such, we pride ourselves on working closely with our candidates. We maintain an open-phone policy. We also prepare information for you to review about the company, provide advice for the interview process, and, logistically, we help to ensure you know who, what, when and where. We also share the insights we’ve gained working with our clients to ensure you, as the candidate, are set up for success.

Thousands of Candidates


We hesitate to boast about the number of our placements because the real success isn’t in the final number, but the quality of the connections and the longevity of the placements we make. Securing a candidate with a position is not a win unless it’s the right candidate at the right company. We know the difference and we know you’ll recognize it too.
